Established in 1995 in Western Australia, Worldwide Printing Solutions is an innovative graphic design and printing service that has since expanded nationwide with numerous centres in NSW, VIC, QLD and SA.
In 2008, Worldwide Printing South Brisbane experienced an immense period of growth and engaged with Konica Minolta to find a business solution for its expanding production printing needs.
As the business expanded, it was relying heavily on its production devices to keep up with high customer demands and its previous devices were just not performing to the level required. As a result, Worldwide Printing South Brisbane’s Managing Director George Bacic began to explore the market for a more reliable and cost effective digital printing solution.
“Not only did we need a suite of first class equipment, we wanted a partner we could trust and a service we could depend on. Quality was also of equal importance; in order to stand out in today’s crowded market, the print quality and colour accuracy had to be more than okay – it had to be exceptional,” commented Bacic.
Worldwide Printing South Brisbane prides itself on a high level of personalised service, which in turn relies strongly upon the quality of its machinery and automated tasks. The business needed a cost effective solution that addressed the company’s productivity challenges as well as growing business needs.
After reviewing the Konica Minolta range, Bacic was extremely impressed by its levels of consistency and reliability. This led Worldwide Printing Brisbane to replace its entire printing fleet with a collection of reliable devices, which gave the business the scope it needed to move forward into the digital arena.
Over the course of six years, the business installed over 10 Konica Minolta production printers, to increase its digital print production capabilities.
The installation included Konica Minolta’s range of quality digital production presses, including a flagship bizhub PRESS C8000, bizhub PRO C6500 and two of its most reliable black and white devices, the bizhub PRO 1200 and 920.
The variety of devices installed offer a number of clever, time saving features such as automated binding, which uses the production saddle stitch finisher with online trimming to produce booklets of up to 200 pages.
Worldwide Printing South Brisbane did not limit itself to hardware improvements only – a number of software solutions were also put in place including the Fiery Graphic Arts Package, Print Shop Mail and Direct Smile.
Since Worldwide Printing South Brisbane replaced the bulk of its production printers, it has come to expect a higher level of reliability and service.
The automation features provided by the Konica Minolta production equipment combined with its absolute reliability, has enabled staff to deliver on its commitment of providing a high level of personalised service.
During the Brisbane floods in 2011, Konica Minolta stepped in to salvage the print business from a possible extended period out of operation.
“Water was already lapping at the front door when Konica Minolta sent in their trucks and engineers to break down and transport the machinery. They housed some of our printers in a dry warehouse while we opened on a smaller suite in another location until the primary location was back up and running. Without Konica Minolta’s help I don’t know how we would have survived that devastating and turbulent time,” added Bacic.
Worldwide Printing South Brisbane now has a wide range of quality digital production devices and is extremely happy with all of the solutions provided by Konica Minolta, “It was definitely a worthwhile investment,” concluded Bacic.
