When Colgate University Document & Mail Services installed its Xerox iGen3 in 2008, the 10-employee in-plant was very happy with the results. But a lot can change in a few years. “The business model we had five years ago...has changed considerably,” notes Director Bob Keats. “With the iGen, there was no way to hook any finishing equipment to it. We had a space limitation.” So booklet making had to be handled offline.
Three in-plant managers recently paid a visit to Russia to share information about their operations with a group of university book publishers there. They spoke at a three-day conference held by the Publishing and Press Association of Universities of Russia, in Pushkin, Russia.
