GLOBAL INSIGHT ROI REPORTING

 

With an important purchase of capital equipment like a grand format printer or digital flatbed printer, shop owners are not only investing for now, but also for the future of their business. Our assessment algorithms identify the best finance strategies, compare competitive products and provide a realistic return on investment for your business so you are fully empowered to invest.

When making a big investment like this, you must evaluate your needs on several levels:

  • Do you have the current volume and demand needed to support this capital equipment purchase?
  • Or do you have confidence it will come with your investment in new equipment?
  • Do you have the space and infrastructure in place to bring in this equipment?
  • Does a growing customer base exist to support your long-term business goals?

A comprehensive ROI on your investment should take into account such factors as:

  • labor
  • rent allocation (real estate needed for equipment footprint)
  • income expectation based on average selling price per square foot
  • monthly production in square feet
  • average working days per month
  • average production
  • speed in square feet per hour
  • number of shifts
  • daily production and maintenance
  • cost of ownership
  • material waste

Global Insight ROI Reporting examines all of these factors as well as the total cost of owning an industrial grand format printer over the term of the loan or the lease including training, sales and marketing, ink and a long-term maintenance program.

ALTERNATIVE INKS

Don’t restrict your business to manufacturers’ inks.

INK MADE EASY

HotSwap Inks is a line of alternative inks for HP Scitex printers including the FB500, FB550, FB700, and FB750. Unlike other alternative inks, HotSwap Inks are chemically compatible, which means there is no difficult conversion process. As your HP UV ink runs out, simply plug in a container of HotSwap Ink and continue printing. No need to flush the lines or re-profile your machine, just replace one color at a time for a seamless conversion.
 
HotSwap Inks replace these HP factory inks: FB250, FB251, and FB794.

 

WHY SHOULD YOU HOTSWAP?

  • Color-Matched: You won’t have to re-profile your printer, you can continue using your existing profiles.
  • Chemically Compatible: No need to flush lines before changing over to HotSwap Inks.* Change one color at a time as your old ink runs out.
  • Plug-and-Play: Each container of ink comes with a chip that communicates with the printer. You can rest assured that HotSwap Inks are HP compatible.
  • Made in the USA: Strict quality control standards and stateside manufacturing. You’ll get high quality ink delivered when you need it, without long lead times or overseas freight charges.
  • Ink Train Warranty: You’re covered. Period.
  • Instant Savings: You’ll see huge savings over OEM prices when you switch to HotSwap Inks. On average, users save $200 per ink container!
