Are you prepared for the print needs of 2018?

With 2018 fast approaching, it’s time to anticipate all that the year may bring and whether your print infrastructure is up to the challenge. 2018 is expected to be a busy year, with a number of high-profile events scheduled which wouldn’t typically occur in an average year. These events could put pressure on the print infrastructure of a variety of businesses for different reasons, but we’re here to help you make the most of what promises to be an exciting year!

 

GDPR
As has been covered in our recent Litepaper and on our blog, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect in May 2018, placing significant pressure on businesses to ensure that they are secure and compliant in all of their processes. Business printing is one of these important processes, as it involves sending potentially confidential business information to a networked device i.e. the multifunction device. If a printer is left unsecured, or not secured properly, there’s the danger that they can be accessed by unauthorized users and used as a back door into the company network – risking a GDPR compliance risk. In preparation for 2018, Xeretec recommends that businesses in all sectors evaluate and assess their print environment to ensure that appropriate measures have been taken to maximise security and to be able to prove compliance.

We can understand why GDPR may feel rather daunting, However, it does present a great opportunity to take a fresh look at your document processes and print environment. Throughout 2018, Xeretec will work to help support businesses to understand where print fits into GDPR, and can help you to ensure that your print devices and workflows are secure and are compliant with the regulation. In addition to the litepaper, we have a host of solutions that can help ensure maximum security of your print fleet, ensuring that how your employees use your print fleet or corporate documents will not put your business information at risk.


Political Calendar
With seven referendums agreed on in Ireland between 2018 and 2019, as well as the UK Local Elections and the Irish Presidential Election taking place in 2018, we expect to see additional pressure placed on commercial printing companies as they prepare to deliver posters, leaflets and other printed collateral to support political campaigns. For commercial printers, this is a good opportunity to start looking at their fleet, the print technology they use and whether they’re as cost effective as they could be. For these political events, customers will require many different kinds of collateral, meaning that a variety of finishing options may need to be a consideration. Xeretec can provide a range of finishing options to meet these needs.

 


In preparation for 2018, Xeretec suggests that now is the time to conduct print assessments and ensure that your devices are up to scratch and ready for the challenge. A print assessment will help to ensure that usage is spread evenly across devices, to ensure longevity from each device, while simultaneously assisting in identifying any potential threats or causes for concern before it’s too late. If you wish to ensure that your devices remain up and running throughout the busy periods of 2018 - and that you are ready and able to accept additional business during these times - please do not hesitate to contact Xeretec today for a free consultation and no-obligation print assessment.
