Webinar Series from Xerox and PIA/GATF to Help Print Providers be Successful in Digital Printing

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 02, 2008  -- Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) and the Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation have joined to educate print providers on the essentials of running a successful digital printing business. The 2008 PIA/GATF Digital Print Webinar Series features leading industry experts speaking on a range of topics in sales and marketing, print operations and business development.

"With more printers adopting digital, we want to ensure our members have the appropriate resources to be successful in the digital space," said Lisa Rawa, vice president, marketing, PIA/GATF. "This Webinar series is a great opportunity for our members to learn strategies for generating profit and growth with digital printing."



The next session is on April 8 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EDT by Peter Muir, president, Bizucate, Inc., on "Be the Expert: Growing Your Customer's Business." The series of seven Webinars kicked off on Feb. 12 with a presentation by Muir on "Building a Digital Print Business: Strategy and Sales Approaches," which was attended by 135 industry professionals. A rebroadcast is available at: www.brainshark.com/xerox/vu?pi=290522261.

"Peter's presentation was very informative," said Dave Revzin, account executive, The Zenger Group, a full-service graphic communications provider in Buffalo, N.Y., who attended the first session and has sold digital printing for about eight years. "It can be a very difficult undertaking to get less experienced print buyers to understand why variable printing can give them a bigger bang for the buck. I welcome opportunities like this to solidify my understanding of the process and give me something new I can put in my bag of tricks. I'm almost certain I'll attend more of the Webinars in this series."
