DocuProof treble for Pearson

According to Doug Langsford, Pearson Australia senior support analyst, the company fell in love with the machine when it visited its North American counterparts in August last year and saw what the solution was doing for them.

“The DocuProof 1250 is a perfect fit for the Australian book publishing industry, which is really heading towards inhouse proofing due to the amount of book publishers using CTP. It also fits in with the growing trend of book publishers doing their own short-run book publishing inhouse,” says Langsford.

Langsford says his company has been looking for a solution that would deliver a high standard of colour accuracy while saving the company money by allowing it to reduce the outsourcing of colour proofs. While the DocuProof has achieved this for Langsford, he is also impressed with the machine’s ability to reduce lead times.

“Speed is always important to us in the book publishing industry as time is always of the essence and people always want everything yesterday, so it’s vital that we get everything proofed and out the door on time. The colour accuracy of the DocuProof is also spot on and we are anticipating huge cost savings by being able to start doing colour-accurate inhouse proofing,” explains Langsford.

“The DocuProof 1250 will ultimately give Penguin and Pearson Education the ability to produce books at a lower cost while also effectively maintaining and improving on quality,” adds Peter Dart, Pearson information services director.
