March 12, 2020 – Fairfield, NJ – Keypoint Intelligence - Buyers Lab (BLI), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging and smart workplace business products, today announced the kickoff of its inaugural Outstanding Achievement in Innovation awards to recognize advancements in production printing hardware, software, and services. Nominations for products to be considered are being accepted now through April 10, with winners to be announced in the June timeframe to help showcase products that were to have been featured at the now postponed drupa industry event.
“Vendors in the production printing space are continually improving their offerings to better meet the challenges customers face in their daily workflows, and these product and feature introductions reach a crescendo every four years as the industry’s largest tradeshow nears,” said Randy Dazo, President and CEO of Keypoint Intelligence. “Now with that event pushed back a year, our goal with these awards is to help spread the word about the truly innovative product advancements that move the industry forward in a meaningful way.”
To be eligible for consideration, vendors need to nominate products (or innovative features within products) by April 10. Products/features should be newly announced and/or available to the market in the June 2020 timeframe. There is no cost to enter, and each vendor can nominate as many products and/or innovations as they feel are worthy in the following categories:
- Print/On Demand
- Industrial Printing
Entries will be judged by Keypoint Intelligence’s expert production printing analysts, who among them have dozens of years’ experience testing production print products and analyzing market trends. Judging criteria will include an emphasis on how the product or feature improves image/output quality, enhances productivity, delivers efficiencies, impacts sustainability, and more.
