services (now Perfact Color Digital Prints Pvt.

capital of Rs.500,000. Today, Perfact has a 70-

and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC). Perfact

several challenges. First, the Xerox products

only process up to 50,000 copies per day.
printing was very expensive and time-consuming.
At times, some of the printouts were wrong. The
current machines have no preview facility and
so the machine operator could not stop the incorrect
printouts before physically printing them.
Third, the print
jobs were handled by a computer operator sitting
in the office with machine operators. Since the
machine operators were not familiar with the workings
of the computer, the computer operator had no
choice but to stay with the machine operators,
working late hours and being paid extra time.
several solutions to improve the situation.
Perfact opted for the BJW 7200 wideformat printer.
These machines not only produce high quality work,
but they are able to do it fast. As a result,
Perfact was able to process and create about 250
posters per day. The company is now also using
the machine for printing large posters for outdoors
and has even begun attracting large companies
for these jobs. Because of this single machine,
Perfact has been able to bring in an extra Rs.500,000
per month, offering customers large posters.
With a print speed of 105 pages per minute
per unit, two units of imageRUNNER 105 combined
enabled Perfact to produce more than 1 lakh (100,000)
copies per day without breakdowns. This helped
Perfact to increase its billing to customers and
turnover doubled in just one year.
105 has been the foundation stone of my business
expansion,” said a very pleased Mr Arya,
Director of Perfact, “They have raised the
document-handling capacity of our company by more
than 500 per cent.”
Looking at the increasing color requirement,
Canon proposed the machine imageRUNNER C3200 which
was capable of handling about 3,500 prints per
day at the high speed of 32 prints per minute.
This speed enabled them to meet customer demand
for quick turnaround time of color documents.
The mailbox feature on the imageRUNNERs has streamlined
Perfact’s printing process to reduce cost,
increase efficiency and security.
First, the computer
operator stores the print jobs in the imageRUNNERs’
mailbox where the machine operator can preview
and print the document later. Thus, the computer
operator does not have to be in the office to
send print jobs to the machine operator, resulting
in shorter working hours. The computer operator’s
salary is, therefore, reduced substantially.
mailbox’s print preview facility on the
imageRUNNERs has also enabled the machine operators
to stop unwanted prints and thus reduced the printing
mailbox facility, even the operators could print
the jobs without engaging the computer, thus increasing
the security of the data in the computer.
Downtime and Increased Reliability:
The time saved by these faster machines resulted
in shorter working hours and thus lower salary
payout to employees. Perfact has also become more
consistent as the machine breakdown time is much
shorter. This consistency has enhanced Perfact’s
reputation and the company is now able to confidently
bid for more business from existing customers
as well as bid for new customers.
Perfact is confident
of Canon technology and is ready to go with more
Canon products to meet its sure-to-be-increasing
documentation needs in the near future.
