Fujitsu's Darryl Hyde states the 'fully in-line solution […] provides 100 percent integrity and security'
'Millions of pounds' will be saved for UK taxpayers following the installation of three Océ JetStream ink-jet colour production systems by Fujitsu, which will be used to 'revolutionise' document printing for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).
Each year, Fujitsu prints over 500m A4 images as part of its contract with HMRC. With the new system, each document can be personalised on a white sheet of paper, cut from a reel fed into the Océ JetStream directly. This means pre-printed documents do not have to be sourced.
According to the manufacturer, software including Océ Prisma enables Fujitsu to move existing artwork into its new data-stream without necessitating changes and allowing the transition to a white paper solution. This is 'saving hundreds of developer man hours over the life of the contract', says Océ.
"Over the three years of the contract we will print over 1.6bn images on white paper on over 1bn sheets of A4 paper," says Fujitsu production manager Darryl Hyde. "The new system of printing has removed the need to pre-print on over 14,600 rolls of paper weighing over 6,200 tonnes as well as the need for over 250 additional lorry journeys, which equates to 50,000 less road miles."
