Automation and productivity features in-plant shops need
According to InfoTrends, reducing production costs and improving efficiency are top priorities for 84 percent of in-plant facilities. Expanding into new print services and focusing on growing existing offerings follow close behind.

The new Xerox Versant presses provide the benefits of advanced automation and productivity to meet those needs,” said Pat McGrew, director, Keypoint Intelligence. “The presses’ Simple Image Quality Adjustment feature requires an internal target to be printed and scanned back, ensuring that adjustments are fast and straightforward, which embodies the best practice we recommend.
