Xerox Users Migration Scenario's

CaptureOcé White Paper: Xerox Users Migration Scenario's

Xerox Migration Strategy - Document Production

The Xerox Migration Strategy - Document Production targets replacement of Xerox Docutech 6100 series by Océ VarioPrint 2100 series (VarioPrint 2110/2100; mid to high volume) and Océ VarioPrint 5000 series (very high to ultra-high volume). This white paper focuses on the VarioPrint 2100 series.

Figure 1 shows the growth path Océ can offer to Xerox customers:

• Coexist: An Océ VarioPrint series is added to the Xerox DigiPath/FreeFlow Makeready workflow

• Replace: The complete Xerox DigiPath/FreeFlow Makeready and DocuTech workflow is replaced by Océ workflow

Customers will benefit most with the replacement scenario. In this way

• They move from proprietary (RDO) to open systems working with market standard formats (PDF and XML)

• They have maximum productivity gains throughout the complete workflow, from submission, acceptance, preparation, production up to finishing and archiving.

However, the replacement scenario is not in all cases the best strategy. The coexist scenario is preferred in case of:

• Sites with multiple DocuTech printers with different contract termination periods

• Large DocuTech sites, where Océ has to prove that the Océ VarioPrint is a solid replacement for the Xerox DocuTech

Océ Arizona 360 GT Is The First Flatbed Printer to be Installed at Printing Industries of America Headquarters

<p>Trumbull, CT, Sept. 19, 2011 – Océ, a Canon Group Company and an international leader in digital document management and printing for professionals, announced today that it will be placing an Océ Arizona® 360 GT UV flatbed printer at the Printing Industries of America headquarters in Sewickley, PA.

Océ Improves Customer Experience With GoToAssist

Capture1Océ provides innovative print and document management products and services to enable its customers to manage their documents more efficiently and effectively. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the company operates globally in 80 countries, with dedicated branches in 30 of these, and employs more than 24,000 staff. The Nordic region services customers across Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

The challenge: minimising support response time across a large region
Océ has a team of several consultants, each with specific product knowledge and service expertise, who provide support and advice for customers across the Nordic region. However, because the consultants are based in various locations, it is often difficult or time-consuming for them to travel to client locations. In addition, consultants with particular product expertise are not always close enough to assist a customer in person.

Benny Duus, IT Competence Team leader at Océ Denmark, explained: “The range of support services that we provide our customers involves analysing and fixing problems with printing machines and software. This often required a desk-side visit, which can mean lengthy travel times when providing assistance across all four Nordic countries. In addition, we want to be the provider that gives the highest level of service.”

The pressure on Océ’s consultants, plus the frustration of customers who had no choice but to wait for a consultant to drive out, meant that despite delivering high-quality support, Océ was not providing service in the most efficient, cost-effective way.
