Lola Print partners with Ricoh by investing in multiple digital technologies to strengthen their customer focus
London, September 8, 2015 –Lola Print have partnered with Ricoh by overhauling its digital press technology with two new options, namely the Ricoh Pro™ C7100 and C5100, that both counter the increasing challenge of rapid turnaround work and adds new profitable service aspects to their proposition.
Lola Print is a Berkshire based print solution specialist that offers digital, wide format and finishing services with an extra level of personal attention given to their customers, to ensure they exceed their expectations and encourage return business.
Tony da Franca at Lola Print said, “The new Ricoh Pro C7100 has opened up new possibilities for our clients, with a much wider range of media, longer sheet sizes and the fifth colour. The press is already in full production, with exceptional print results, and operators on the shop floor love the precise front-to-back registration. Ricoh worked very hard to establish a true partnership and have become trusted advisors, which gave Lola Print the confidence to invest in the new digital presses, replacing our Konica Minolta equipment”.
Customers of Lola Print will benefit from the new technology partnership through a consistent service approach from Ricoh which ensures both machines allow ease of operation for the staff meaning Lola can save time and reduce minor error rates. In particular, Ricoh's approach to testing and certifying media means Lola Print can be confident that the very best results will be obtained from any substrate in the very large catalogue. The Ricoh technology also provides the ability to offer extra services, showing that customers are trusting Ricoh to take their business forward and further increase digital turnover.
The Pro™ C7100 series makes it easier for print service providers to offer diverse and unique outputs to their clients and new revenue streams to their business. Highly productive for its class, the Pro™ C7100 series delivers print speeds up to 90ppm and supports media up to 360gsm. A key feature of the Pro™ C7100 series is its fifth colour station allowing clear gloss or white applications, offering print services providers significant additional revenue opportunities.
The Pro® C5100S was the first Ricoh digital production printer to feature Ricoh’s enhanced toner transfer technology which delivers high quality print results on heavily textured stock – perfect for direct mail and marketing applications. Wide media compatibility is one of the many key benefits of these models. This is ideal for challenging printing applications such as envelopes, where the balance of pressure and heat is critical to maintain a flat and perfectly printed product.
Gareth Parker, at Ricoh UK said, “We are very proud that Lola Print has put their trust into Ricoh to further enhance their client offerings and ensure customer satisfaction remains at the core of their business. As we see the commercial and economic pressures remain ever present, it’s really encouraging to see responsible investment happening and creativity being displayed by Lola Print.”
