[Leon Minnie] The printing industry has changed, with many established printer providers, as well as new companies, adopting digital printing solutions to meet the demands of the print market.
[Craig Green] Organisations of all sizes are looking at every part of their IT infrastructure in an effort to find additional cost savings. Believe it or not, the print infrastructure is still one place most haven't looked - and it's a huge opportunity for resellers.
[Anthony Swart] While the digital sphere explodes with both content and marketing options, print is still a major component of the marketer's arsenal. In fact, it is estimated that print comprises approximately 40% of a company's marketing budget.
[Gary Davies] The print industry is in a state of evolution, sometimes putting pressure on companies, printers and all those involved in the sector.
[Patrick Lacy] Responding to media claims that outsourcing print management will have a beneficial effect in beating the recession for print buyers, the Printing Industries Federation of Southern Africa has responded that the long-term effects will result in dire consequences.
[Anthony Swart] I believe that this year will prove to be positive for the both the print and print management sector as I see a number of beneficial trends emerging.
[Heinrich Pretorius] Printer technology has by no means remained static over the years, even though the concept of the paperless office may never have materialised, and printers still form a vital part of day-to-day business. Computers, processors and the latest gadgets often get all of the publicity, but behind the scenes the humble printer has continued to evolve.
[Ernest Leong] With the huge volume of printer use in an office environment, companies are starting to reassess how to keep this reliable and make it more efficient. Traditional printing methods, such as laser printing, have dominated this space for many years, so the move to a different, more innovative solution is often seen as a slightly uncomfortable jump for any business.

[Gill Moodie] The divide between the increasingly white-collar journalists and the more blue-collar production, sales and distribution departments is growing and, increasingly, people like you and me understand less and less about the nuts and bolts of the business of publishing. So mention "the presses" and I picture a gang of ink-stained men in overalls slaving away in a subterranean maze of machines and gigantic rolls of newsprint.
