Colin McMahon - senior market research analyst at PTC focused on understanding how digital transformation empower organisations, processes, and people - outlines the value of no-code software tools.

Be clever and think smart. Software developments and integrations mean large-format PSPs have more opportunity than ever to gather and analyse data from across the whole of their operations, and to use that intelligence to make them more efficient and profitable. 

The volume of ‘eco’ consumables hitting the wide-format print market is impressive. But though the most visible, is the environment all that’s on the inks and media R+D spectrum?

Can we get better any time soon at recovering used large-format print for recycling? MacroArt MD Michael Green tackles the questions of how realistic that is, and who is responsible for making it happen.

Manchester-based MediaCo has been ‘greening-up’ its operations for years and recently introduced a new carbon reduction programme called Ecosure that is supported by investment in two HP Latex 3600 printers and a HP Stitch S1000. So what is the company’s eco ethos?  Here’s what group operations director Stephen Arthur has to say.

Earlier this year British Business Investments announced an additional £15m commitment to Compass Business Finance, taking its total commitment to £30m - the intention being to increase the flow of funding for asset finance products into UK-based smaller businesses operating in the print, packaging and manufacturing sectors. So who is asking for the money, are they getting it, and is this conversation more, or less, likely to make you apply too?

This year’s show will occupy eight halls of Messe Berlin. Will you be one of those walking them?

This summer, on 15 June, POPAI UK/Ireland will run its biggest ever sustainability summit - ‘Impact22’.  Topics on the agenda include the greening-up of retail POP and sustainable materials. I talked to chair and sustainability director, Martin Kingdon, to find out where the organisation thinks large-format PSPs
fit into the scheme of things.
