A print company’s workflow is the beating heart of it's manufacturing process that has enormous ramifications on output - both in speed and quality.

Neo/Eastern Press is a commercial print media company based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia with nearly 100 years of history in the industry and provides high-quality print services with UV offset capabilities, B2 digital printing presses, and in house embellishments utilizing a fully integrated workflow process with Prinect Production Manager.

“In aligning ourselves with a workflow software, there were a few key areas we wanted tick off our list. One was a system that had the ability to handle offset and digital workflow, had a standing integration with our MIS system, and was a long-term partner that we could trust and collaborate with. Whilst there were other great systems in the marketplace, all with solutions to the first two points - the final point was more difficult.

When it came to aligning ourselves with a business, we felt that Heidelberg was the natural fit. My family’s relationship with Heidelberg would be getting close to a hundred years.

The choice of Prinect was simply a natural evolution of this long standing relationship and we knew in Heidelberg that it was a company that would help us grow and share the same industry leading mentality that we as a company strive to have. Having Dierk Wissmann and Helder Silva as our Heidelberg contacts who are leaders in their own right made the decision that much easier.

Printshops nowadays are facing increasing challenges of shorter run lengths, faster turnaround times, increasing costs, a competition for talent and declining print prices. Therefore, it’s important more than ever that print shops are optimizing every aspect of their production to stay competitive and profitable.”
Clinton Daley – General Manager of NEO
