As all print professionals know, having the right RIP software for your business is vital in streamlining work processes to not only maximise efficiency, but also drive down costs and guarantee quality in order to promote a competitive business proposal. Joe will demonstrate the VersaWorks & VersaWorks Dual RIP software programmes, which come included with purchases of Roland DG technology.

In addition Rob Goleniowski, Sales Support Manager will present an informative presentation called ‘Why Wide Format’ on in the Business Seminar, giving commercial business attendees insight into the easy and profitable upsell opportunities available. During his presentation Rob will explain the simplicity of integrating wide-format machines into existing work-flows, how versatile and profit-driving the output is, plus tips and tricks on who and how to sell to, leaving you thinking “Why haven’t I entered this market before?”
