UXBRIDGE Service Point, a world-wide provider of digital reprographics and document management services, has invested in a Xerox 700 Digital Colour Press following a successful trial in its Tottenham Court Road centre, in central London. With the help of the new Xerox 700 machine, Service Point is now able to expand its portfolio of document applications.

Denis O'Regan, Managing Director at Service Point, said, "Service Point has always prided itself on providing best-of-breed solutions within its stores. Having benchmarked the Xerox 700 against similar devices in the market we felt its quality, registration and reliability made it one of the best entry-level production presses in the marketplace. Through the intensive trial-period, it became clear that the Xerox 700 builds on our quality variable data printing (VDP) offer and will help us grow volumes for such applications.

"Key to our decision to invest in the Xerox 700 was the opportunity to add capabilities to the Tottenham Court Road centre's range of document applications. We can now offer customers fast, high quality bid document preparation, top quality mailing pieces and conference literature production. Pairing the Xerox 700 with XMPie software also enables Service Point to offer true VDP capability with seamless production of unique pieces on a wide variety of stock. Advertising agencies, professional services companies, conference and exhibitions organisers can now access beautifully printed and finished documents and promotional pieces on-demand," added Kevin Godfrey, Marketing and Communications Manager, Service Point UK.

The Xerox 700 Digital Colour Press prints at 70 pages per minute in colour or black and white, and provides an affordable way to start building or expanding a digital printing business, especially for in-plant operators, quick printers, commercial printers, creative agencies, photo speciality retailers, and departmental environments. The system has the image quality and productivity of a high-end production press and is ideal for photo books, brochures, direct-mail pieces, catalogues, calendars and postcards.

Peter Taylor, Director, Production and Graphic Arts, Xerox UK added, "We welcome Service Point as one of the first Xerox 700 users in the UK. Print providers, like ServicePoint, are increasingly demanding products that produce profitable full-colour applications that can deliver added value to the consumer. The Xerox 700 Digital Colour Press delivers with feature-rich functionality at an affordable price."
