A Malaysian company has been able to meet the demanding printing requirements of their customers for high-quality, low-cost colour and monochrome prints by investing in the HP PageWide XL 8000 printer from HP.
Operating in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur, Vantage Intelligence provide their printing services to architects, engineers and students who typically need detailed drawings, plans and posters to be printed. In the highly competitive print market, Vantage knew the importance of efficiency and speed in providing the best service in the shortest time for their customers.
Vantage Intelligence owner Vincent Tay explained that their customers needed high-quality, low-cost colour and monochrome prints delivered within tight timeframes. However, their existing LED printers simply couldn’t cope with the demand or the need for speed and were additionally limited to monochrome output for large-format prints. Struggling to deliver low-cost, high-quality colour prints quickly to their customers, many of whom needed thousands of colour and monochrome prints produced overnight, the company looked for a new print platform to meet the demand.
Having worked with HP previously, Vantage Intelligence sought a cost-effective alternative capable of high-quality, large-format colour and monochrome printing at speed. The HP PageWide XL 8000 printer offers Vantage Intelligence breakthrough print speeds in monochrome and colour. As the fastest large-format monochrome and colour printer on the market, it not only allows Vantage Intelligence to offer faster delivery, but also services a wider range of applications.
Key feature highlights of the HP PageWide XL 8000 printer include a stationary 40-inch printbar spanning the whole printing width; entire page printed in one pass as paper moves under the printbar, enabling very high printing speeds; and HP 841 PageWide XL printheads and HP PageWide XL pigment ink specially designed to enable extended time between service station cycles of up to hundreds of pages, maximising productivity.
Vantage Intelligence owner Tay does not need to work through the night to meet his customers’ high volume printing demands. Tay says the HP PageWide XL 8000 printer gives them the all-in-one capacity to handle higher volumes of mixed print without compromising quality, with print speeds seven times faster than the previous device. The easy-to-install printer was also up and running in just two hours.
A key outcome for Vantage Intelligence is that they have been able to reduce their prices by 20 percent while their business volume has increased by 20 percent since installing the HP PageWide XL printer. By producing colour prints at lower costs, Tay can increase his share of the market and become more competitive.
Advanced features of the HP PageWide XL 8000 printer have enabled Vantage Intelligence to improve productivity and operator efficiency. The HP PageWide XL high-capacity stacker automatically sorts prints, reducing the need for an operator, while the HP SmartStream software automates workflow processes and the user interface simplifies operation.
