At any given time,there are over 2,000 students who request for different study material,varies from 10 to a 100 booklets with differing paginations. To cater such high-volume demand they required a solution that can provide quality work in short time span.

The Solution

Relying on outsourcing was proving to be not only costly but extremely inefficient.It also did not have control over the workflow,to overcome the problem we called tenders for printing solutions and was in the search for printing solution which can provide the desired 300gsm auto duplex support and cost effective approach in terms of competitive click price with best print quality standards. We found Konica Minolta bizhub PRESS C8000 a perfect match then any other printing solution in country for our business. To begin with we installed Konica Minolta mono printing solutions bizhub PRESS 950,but soon migrated to colour with installation of Bizhub Press C6000. This kit which prints at a resolution of up to 1,200dpi and can handle a maximum monthly volume of around 3-lakh,is a solution that has guaranteed high productivity as well has ensured that short deadlines are always met. On one occasion,there was a 72-page booklet to be printed with a print run of 70 copies. The task was completed within six hours. The two machines put together handle one- to three-lakh copies per month and are perfect machines,and its image quality and image stability even on thick substrate of up to 300gsm,at affordable cost makes them highly flexible.

Improvement & Key for Success
