Mission – what we’re about
What are the benefits that you, as a member of the printing industry, should be getting out of Prinect User Days? What are the „Prinect User Days“, who says what topics are on the agenda, who’s behind it all?
You may well have already asked yourselves these questions so we’d like to give you a brief answer to them here:
We, the Organization Team are a kaleidoscope of all kinds of people. We all work, in some form or another, in the graphic arts industry and aim to advance our industry, whether technically, organizationally or structurally. We come from Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, Holland and Austria.
We follow no commercial interests. We receive no payment for our work and it’s our free time that we devote to it. On the contrary, we pay our own, often large travel expenses that we incur when preparing our annual meeting and in between times we sacrifice our free time for telephone conferences and conceptual activities. But we are guided by our vision of continually driving ourselves and our industry forward – and we would like to learn from you too as a participant of the Prinect User Days. We do it all because we believe in it and we enjoy our profession.
Since we’re all Prinect users and/or Heidelberg customers and believe in Prinect as a tool and therefore want to drive Prinect forward, we hold these User Days jointly with the people from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG. Heidelberg lets us use the Print Media Center and sponsors and organizes the entire event. We, as the organization team, couldn’t possibly cope with organizing such an event – without Heidelberg this event would not take place.
So some of the organization team members also work for Heidelberg and we prepare the event together.
This makes it a win-win situation:
We users have the opportunity to gather information and know-how first-hand from the market leader and can discuss directly with the developers what kind of further developments we would like to see in Prinect.
Heidelberg has the opportunity to get direct feedback from users so that they can steer their R&D and continually enhance their products in the right direction. And naturally this also gives Heidelberg the opportunity to win over new customers and present new products.
Prinect User Days is an active development platform with interaction between users and the supplier to their mutual benefit.
No more, but no less.
