Tarrant County Leverages Océ Digital Printers and Workflow

CaptureLocated in the north central part of Texas, Tarrant County is one of the fastest growing urban counties in the United States. With Fort Worth as its county seat, the growing area supports a population of close to 1.4 million citizens. And while the frontier has changed, the pioneering spirit has not—much of the flavor and attitudes of the county’s western heritage live on.

Tarrant County is home to a diverse spectrum of businesses and lifestyles, including cattle, agriculture, aerospace companies, and defense contractors. Its economy is one of the most vibrant and diverse in the nation, leading a regional resurgence in business relocations and expansions, retail development and new housing construction. With this level of activity, it’s not surprising that supporting county departments and agencies requires a robust document production infrastructure.

The Challenge: Transitioning to Digital Production

Until recently, a robust digital infrastructure is exactly what the Tarrant County Graphics and Printing Department did not have. The in-plant print shop faced three major challenges: the 20-plus year-old facility had old, worn-out, analog equipment that couldn’t handle the volume and types of work internal customers needed. The facility needed a better, faster way to make copies without damaging hard copy originals. And there was no convenient way to electronically submitt or enhance jobs.
