After a two-year forced break from Corona, the participants, the Orga-team, and the Heidelberg colleagues were delighted to finally be able to resume and cultivate long-missed personal contacts at the Prinect User Days. „Nice to see you again“ was frequently heard.
After almost 15 years at the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg, this year’s User Days were held for the first time in new surroundings directly at the Innovation Center and the Print Media Center in Wiesloch. In keeping with the spirit of new beginnings the agenda was packed with various product announcements and new product presentations.
After the usual relaxed opening, the first day was kicked off with an initial presentation on the subject of personnel in multigenerational operations followed by a controversial discussion on MIS/order-driven production versus a manufacturing-driven production. After this warm up Heidelberg presented its strategy relating to the cloud and made it clear that the Corona break had been used intensively to think up new concepts and develop new products. With H+ (the new cloud platform from Heidelberg), Print Shop Analytics and the concept for the cloud-based workflow Prinect Direct, the Heidelberg company laid its cards on the table and showed how things will progress with Prinect in the coming years.
Workshops were held in the Prinect Media Center in the afternoon. The presentation slides from the first and second day can be downloaded here. The participants were delighted with the opportunity to take part in the workshops in the middle of a production environment and directly at the machines.
The two days flew by also supported with excellent culinary delights. The evening event took place in Heidelberg Castle. In the best weather, the evening was toasted in the courtyard against the impressive backdrop of the castle, before dining and drinking in the historic rooms until late in the evening.
The Orga-team would like to thank everyone who helped to make the Prinect User Days 2022 a complete success. We are already looking forward to seeing you again in 2023, probably in the fall. All the best until then.
Your Prinect User Days Orga-team
