Give Your Business a Boost with Wide-Format Tech and Services
Now is the time to invest in wide-format technology and services — an opportunity largely driven by changes in how we communicate graphically using the environment around us. Over the past two years, we’ve seen floor and wall graphics used more frequently, and more printing on alternative substrates to create new revenue streams than ever before. The wide-format opportunity is further boosted by evolving shopping trends, including consumer preference for touchless self-checkout options requiring more wayfinding and informational signage, according to the 2019 Wide-Format Application Survey by Keypoint Intelligence.
The scope of industries and applications served by wide-format solutions allow you to meet customer needs for a wide range of solutions and create ongoing opportunities to generate new revenue and enter new markets. By introducing wide-format into your current imaging portfolio, you can also leverage your existing infrastructure to cross and upsell while tapping into new markets and reaching new customers.
As you know, expansion and product diversification are critical to growing business. Recently, we have seen increased need for certain production print applications for which wide-format solutions are ideally suited, such as the RICOH (Booth N1928) Pro L5160e, RICOH Pro TF6251, and Ricoh’s Sign & Graphics Professional Services. Partnering with Ricoh to extend into wide-format technology and services prepares and positions you for ongoing success as inkjet technologies evolve and advance.
