Simon Biddlecombe joins Heidelberg as Prinect expert


Heidelberg UK has added to its Prinect MIS and workflow team. Simon Biddlecombe joins the company as a prepress trainer and integration specialist, having moved from Sterling Press where he was workflow systems manager with experience of Tharstern MIS and Prinect production modules.

“I am particularly excited about Heidelberg’s Business Manager MIS and the ability to integrate administrative, management and production modules,” says Mr Biddlecombe. “Coming from a printing background means I understand the benefits workflows can bring and how they work in practice. As an integrator I also appreciate the need to create systems with least disruption to the daily running of the business.”

Simon’s time will be split between demonstration, training and on site workflow implementation. He joins a team that includes for the north Dave Naylor (sales) and David Grimshaw (service) and for the south Colin Snowball (sales) and Dave B Smith (service) with integration specialists Neil Blakely and Graham Avery and software gurus Simon Welton and Paul Hartley supporting those regional pairings. There are helpdesk and other specialists also in support behind the scenes.

Paul Chamberlain, who is Prinect business driver, says: “At Drupa Heidelberg showed printers just how automated their businesses could become and Prinect is a critical element because today printers are handling so many more jobs. As runs get lower, the administration and control of work from order to delivery becomes more and more critical. Integration and the ability to link business and production processes and to manage offset litho and digital production (including colour control) with equal ease is vital. As more and more customers seek our help in this area it is critical we have the expertise to meet demand. We are delighted that Simon has joined us.”

Simon will operate from his home near Kettering. When he is not working he likes cycling and tending his allotment (vegetables and flowers).
