Hogeschool PXL lanceert nieuwe door Service Point ontwikkelde website aan het begin van het schooljaar.

De nieuwe Hogeschool PXL website, gelanceerd bij aanvang van het schooljaar 2013-2014, bouwt verder op Seneca’s technologie en Service Point’s expertise.

Web CMS

Service Point heeft het afgelopen decennium grote kennis vergaard met het  implementeren  van web content management systemen (CMS), daarbij vooral gebruik makend van Smartsite CMS van Seneca. Smartsite maakt het de gebruikers mogelijk om op een eenvoudige manier gecentraliseerd content te gaan beheren en publiceren via verschillende kanalen (websites, portals, …).

Service Point & PXL

Vóór de fusie tussen de Provinciale Hogeschool Limburg (PHL) en de Xios Hogeschool, realiseerde Service Point reeds de technische implementatie van de PHL-website, toen al gebaseerd op het Smartsite CMS. De nieuwe Hogeschool PXL website, gelanceerd bij aanvang van het schooljaar 2013-2014, bouwt verder op Seneca’s technologie en Service Point’s expertise. Het resultaat is een website die een afspiegeling is van de kwaliteit van Service Point’s aanpak en technische know-how.

SP Nederland signs MPS reseller contract with Xerox

Barcelona, 11 June 2013.- Service Point Nederland B.V. (SPNL) and Xerox Nederland signed a Reseller Agreement in June for Xerox Partner Print Services. SPNL will be one of few official partners for Xerox Managed Print Services in The Netherlands.

“By deploying a rigorous MPS programme, customers could save an average of 28% in annual print costs” says Carl Peter Clampit, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of Service Point Solutions. “It will offer them the possibility to reduce printing costs, improve productivity, optimize their printer fleet, reduce environmental impact, enhance document related security, reduce administrative burden, improve document workflows and give mobile and virtual workers support for print services”.

SPNL Managed Print Services will support all office based print activities and will provide the customers an audit of the current state of their print footprint, usage and total cost of ownership. SPNL will offer to optimize the customers multivendor inventory by matching usage needs, provide proactive support to increase printer uptime, be a single break-fix provider and provide automated supplies replenishment as well as consolidated office printer billing and on-going management reporting.

SPNL is very pleased partnering with Xerox since they are an acknowledged MPS leader with a broad support portfolio and global presence.

According to independent consulting agency Quocirca, only 16% of mid-market organisations have adopted Managed Print Services.

Service Point Norway launches “AllPrinting”

Barcelona, 27 May 2013. – Service Point Norway, branded Service Point Allkopi, launched its new online print shop (www.allprinting.no) for all types of cards this spring.

The online offer, aimed at B2C, allows customers to choose from over 25,000 templates to personalize their birthday cards, wedding invitations, thank you notes, and all kinds of high-quality colour, seasonal greetings.

With fast 48-hour delivery times, and 21 stores to promote the website from its retail outlets, this “Store and Online” offer is significant step forward for Service Point as it diversifies into new markets. The website has already booked €85,000.

“This is a pilot programme for us,” says Carl Peter Clampit, Chief Marketing Officer of Service Point Solutions. “We want to exploit our production base to move into new growth markets, and that means developing our online channel. Rather than compete with online-only players in Google ads, we will leverage our retail stores to provide a “touch and feel” promotional model to our growing online offer.”

Customers see a display of the online offer in the stores, and discounts and vouchers are offered to encourage them to purchase online.

Personalization of products is key. Personalization is central to the digital printing revolution, allowing customers to engage with the product in a creative, interactive way.
 And the online offer is also receiving customers from the business world, as they personalize menus, place cards, compliment slips, event invitations, and other business or marketing products.

Service Point has also launched a business printing website in Germany (http://shop.koebcke.de), aimed at small businesses, which will provide fast online printing from the Berlin factory, one of the most advanced production centres in Europe and 3rd biggest photobook supplier.

Isn’t Service Point arriving late to the online game? “Yes,” admits their Chief Marketing Officer, “that’s why we are fast tracking development. But how many organizations can launch an online offer with a 44,000 customer base, physical presence in 60 locations across Europe, and a brand name associated with printing for the world’s biggest business customers?”

Service Point Germany grows due to high demand for its online photo-merchandising products

Barcelona, may 2013. – Service Point, through its German division Koebcke Photo Services, is a major player in the European photo book and photo merchandising market.

This has been achieved through the success of its digital printing facility in Berlin, which produces photo books, canvases, business cards, postcards, invitations and greetings cards, as well as calendars and posters for customers throughout Europe, to meet the high demand of online service providers.

In the first quarter of 2013, Service Point Germany has printed 1.4 million cards and 7,800 canvases. This is an increase of more than 30% compared to last year, in a market segment that has been experiencing double-digit growth over the last five years.

The production facility in Berlin is one of the most innovative centres in the world. It has fully-automated production processes and the most up-to-date digital print equipment with 5 HP Indigo and two Kodak Nexpress machines, which together with its two BQ470 Binding machines and a Kolbus cover maker, provide a production capacity of 8,000 hard or soft cover books per day, in addition to other products.

“The strategic commitment we have made to position ourselves as one of the leading players in the “print-on-demand” and photo services market is producing excellent results with record orders”, says Carl Peter Clampit, Chief Marketing Officer of Service Point. “We continue to identify opportunities for growth in this creative and appealing market, and will carry on developing exceptional products and services to complement our current portfolio to inspire our customers and partners”.

Futuresource, an independent analyst, recently ranked the German company as the third largest photo-book producer in Europe. The company is using its strong competitive position to promote its photo merchandise business further in Germany and in the other central European markets in which the Spanish multinational operates.
