"You learn a lot by talking to other people facing similar challenges… and by talking one-on-one to the EFI system experts… with an MIS, you learn how to do what you need to do every day, at Connect you explore the full potential of what the software will do."
Chip Snyder, Purchasing Manager
Color Dynamics, Dallas, Texas
"EFI does a wonderful job, better than most, of really emphasizing the 'connecting' aspect of the conference… There are always people off in sidebar, off in groups discussing, planning, plotting… there's really a willingness to participate… At Connect, you have all the access you could possibly want…"
Glenn Huish, CTO
Belaire Displays, Richmond, CA
"If I can walk away with one thing from Connect that gets us a new customer or helps us change the way we're doing things, it's a slam dunk… There's training, one-on-one discussions with EFI product engineers, developers and executives for updates and a window to the future of what we can expect… And peers – that's probably the best part of the conference... I was talking to someone who said 'we do it this way'... I called the head of our graphics department and he said, 'That's exactly what we're looking for'… I paid for the trip right there!"
Jim Rosenthal, Chief Operating Officer
Digital Color Graphics
"Connect lets our team network with other business leaders… we come here looking for good ideas and to learn… the conference makes us stronger…"
Joan Davidson, Group President, Publications
The Sheridan Group
"We just went live with Pace™ and came to Connect to continue the process… There are a lot of new users here… I wanted to meet people in the education arena and there's a fair amount of them here as well… I've learned a lot… Once you launch, if you don't keep going, you might be using 60% of your system… we want to be at 100%. I've got a whole list of things we're going to change when I get back."
Kevin Miller, Manager Production
Oakland Schools, Michigan
"Connecting your people, products and processes together is a must in today's business climate. EFI gives you the tools and knowledge to do all three."
Marc Olin, SVP/GM Commercial Print Systems, EFI
"It's the one place you get a chance to see all the people you need to see from EFI. It's a hectic four or five days but well worth the effort... We sat in the executive session with Marc Olin; he shared a project they had just done… If we can get what he showed us, we can pay for our Connect for the next ten years."
Mark Mitchell, VIC
"You always pick up something at Connect. We use the Fiery® product, we use the PrintSmith™ MIS… not only do I take classes and learn from that, but when you're sitting around having a discussion, you learn from that as well… I took some classes today on lean manufacturing… there's no way we can implement it all but there's two or three pieces that I can very easily do that will save us time… and money…"
Randy Herron, President
Herron Printing and Graphics, Washington DC
"We use the Monarch MIS, PrintFlow®, Auto-Count® and PrinterSite® Internal… and we're ready to implement the Planner… we own a VUTEk QS and wide format is the fastest growing area of our business… Connect puts us in touch with the people we deal with throughout the year. We talk through issues, learn and provide recommendations on how to make products better…"
Shawn Finnie, Implementation Manager
Marketing Services by Vectra, Columbus Ohio
"There's always something we learn here… I look at it like oysters… we keeping opening oysters to get the pearls… It's more the management things and about what the industry is doing and where it's headed. You get a lot of interaction with other users and owners…"
Shelia Morgan, Owner
Lipps Printing, New Orleans
"I don't think you have another venue where you have this much opportunity to be exposed to so many people who have knowledge about the system including users, vendors, developers… We're new and we learn new things each day and we've actually done some modifications to our system while at the conference…"
