Your Challenges

Most printed communication is not read or acted upon. A 2% response rate is the norm. The variable data printing tools available to combat this low response rate often have vital limitations.

Key Challenges

  • Low complexity transactional VIP tools produce high volumes but can personalise on only a very basic level
  • Application-specific tools (plug ins) are available but can only be used with one design application, such as Quark XPress or InDesign
  • Slow speeds, very basic personalisation, and network congestion are limitations of traditional Mail Merge applications

How Xerox Can Help

Get the most out of your printed communications by leveraging personalised printing. Variable printing increases the value of your communication and increases response rates to 30 to 40%.

  • Shortens the printing process and decreases network traffic by sending the static document together with the link to the database to the RIP only once
  • Saves time because PrintShop Mail allows your PostScript printer to run at or near rated speed
  • Reduces print costs and waste with efficient workflow and verification and checking features
  • Utilises your existing design applications such as Quark XPress, PageMaker, Illustrator, or Microsoft Word
  • Utilises your existing database including Paradox, Microsoft FoxPro, Excel, and Access in the Windows version and Dbase and delimited ASCII in both Windows and Macintosh versions
  • Increases printstream reliability because PrintShop Mail allows you to perform a resource check and verify if all data will appear correctly

Why Choose Xerox?

  • Utilises Xerox technology including fast printing speeds, high reliability, and a variety of finishing capabilities
  • Easier purchase process than the competition because your Xerox representative will handle both your hardware and software needs
  • Faster problem solving with one point of contact for hardware and/or software support - unlike competitive offerings that have separate contacts for hardware and software support
