Flemish Parliament streamlines print production with Canon and EFI

The Flemish Parliament is the legislative pillar of the Flemish government. It is responsible for the approval of the Flemish budget and the establishment of the Flemish decrees. Earlier, the decrees were printed externally, but to gain time and guarantee confidentiality, they already decided more than 10 years ago to do this internally. Since then, all Members of Parliament can choose to receive the decrees digitally, on paper, or both.

“The biggest advantage, both for the internal clients and us, is the huge time saving due to the simple and clear structure of DSF and Pace.”
