P + E Digital Gallery Captures Awards, Business, and Mindshare in Brazilian Marketplace with Scodix
Just five years old, P + E Digital Gallery, of the Brazilian southern city of São Paulo, is doing what no one else in their marketplace would or could. The digital services provider has realized a glaring and unfulfilled need for professional high-quality digital printing services. And with a winning formula to success in place, P + E has quickly evolved into a market leader, become a consistent and recognized innovator, outpaced their competitors, and captured distinguished industry awards. They have also attracted many of the most revered agencies and corporate clients in Brazil.
Each of the last three years, P + E has been honored with the Fernando Pini Award for Graphic Excellence, the Brazilian Printing Industry’s equivalent of an Oscar. This level of obvious consistency has earned them the work and trust of noted clients such as Nestlé, BMW, Coca Cola, Heinz, Visa, Fiat, Volkswagen, Honda, Samsung, and LG, to name but a few. And it was this commitment to consistent market leadership that led their executive team to Scodix, as the next step in production and marketing innovation.
“We began researching Scodix at Drupa 2012,” adds CFO Eden Ferraz. “After an extensive research and planning we installed our first system last August. The underlying strategy was to offer a finish that could be applied digitally and surpass the expectations of our clients, as well as out-shine the rest of the field. The Scodix SENSE™ system is a superior offering, providing us with the tactile sensation of varied textures. Our goal is to increase the volume of paper processed via added value, and the additional demand generated by the Scodix system. We are expecting to realize a 20% sales increase, as well as reach a new plateau of customer satisfaction.”
“There are also several other benefits to working with Scodix. By installing our own system, we’ve eliminated outsourced services, which accelerates throughput and gives us greater control over the production cycle. We’ve also vastly increased the quality and selection of textures we can apply to projects. And by offering the Scodix suite of finishes, we have both differentiated ourselves in the marketplace, and expanded our reach in terms of services. They also complement our Indigo systems nicely, giving us much greater flexibility.”
“As of today, there are still clients that are just now learning about Scodix image enhancement capabilities. Not all of our clients are ready to take advantage of these new offerings. But we believe that in little time we will have our sales increased and we will be able to help all of our customers. The Scodix features make the fabrication of a better quality final product possible. By offering this new technology to our clients we not only strengthen our bonds with each established client, we now have a paved avenue to reach new clients and develop new revenue streams. It offers us a major competitive advantage.”
