Exclusive partnership between HCL Infosystems and Intec
- enabling first exclusive distribution of Intec printers in India
- with focus on the growing niche speciality printing market providing the best ROI to customers
- bringing special benefits for the printing and packaging industry
Taking another initiative with increasing commitment to printing industry, HCL Infosystems Ltd, India’s premier services and ICT systems integration, distribution and hardware company recently announced its exclusive tie up with Intec for distribution of its speciality printing systems across the country. This is for the first time that Intec heavy stock and media printers will be distributed throughout India at a very competitive price point. The partnership will create market differentiation and enhance a fast growing niche market as it will provide commercial printers with heavy stock and specialist printing capabilities.
The exclusive partnership will bring special benefits for the printing and packaging industry in India as Intec’s cutting edge technology combines with HCL Infosystems’ vast distribution network. The Intec specialist printing machine with printing above 300 GSM is beyond the capabilities of the currently available systems in India. Moreover, this will be backed with a robust and trained HCL team which will help customers with effective technical support to make the most out of the machine. Service support will be provided by the Premium HCL Service under HCL Care, HCL Infosystems’ Service and Support Division.
With emerging trends, the industry players who migrate to heavy stock or specialised printing are expected to register substantial growth in their business. Customers of the Intec Printing System will enjoy low cost of ownership, faster return on investment, unique production capabilities which will open new markets and opportunities, easy to use compact design, compatibility with other digital presses and low maintenance with easy access to consumables. Apart from Heavy stock (300- 600 GSM) paper, the Intec speciality printer can print on any surface and substrate such as corrugated sheets, wedding cards and automobile bodies. This printing solution will bring immense business benefits for commercial printers, print shops and media companies, advertising agencies and organizations engaged in the graphic arts.
“We are delighted to partner with Intec and create a new niche market opportunity in the printing industry in India. This association will further complement and strengthen our portfolio and bring a world class product to Indian customers. There is hardly any alternative available for the Intec Printers in the Indian market; also service support has always been an issue with customers for such printing systems. Our widespread distribution and service network will further create the right mix in making a successful impact in the rapidly growing Indian digital print market with the Intec printing systems,” said M Chandrasekaran, senior VP and head of office automation, HCL Infosystems speaking about the tie up.
“After the training that myself and Andy Withall delivered, HCL’s expert team is now doing what all good partners should do – they are slowly introducing the range to customers, which is a very sensible step indeed. It is all about ensuring that they do not over promise and under deliver and I am confident in their abilities. HCL’s efforts are paying off. We are delighted with the progress HCL is making,” added Kerry Button, international sales director at Intec Printing Solutions Limited.
