Xerox has opened a state of the art training facility in Dubai. The digital technology it uses is aimed to help employees and those of partners, maximise the capabilities of Xerox print management technologies. The company explained that it is part of its long-term commitment to investment in human capital in the region.

“The launch of the new training facility is a reiteration of Xerox’s commitment to continuously invest in the region. The centre will futher ensure that our employees and distributor partners are able to effectively assist businesses in the region on the deployment of effective document management and in-house publishing solutions,” said Roy Harding, vice president, distributor operations, Xerox MEA.

More than 150 people have gone through training courses at the centre since it opened two months ago. They have been instructed by vertical industry specialists from Europe and South Africa on how digital technology can improve business processes.

“Production publishing is a strategic business tool that can play a critical role in reducing print turnaround times and print costs, increasing efficiency and virtually eliminating the need for expensive document storage. But recent surveys have found that only 22% of businesses in the world outside the Americas have invested in the technology,” added Harding.

“Document management issues such as ineffective print buying systems bottlenecks in paper flow cost businesses thousands of dollars a year. By imparting our specialised training, we hope to increase the productivity and efficiency levels of our regional customers,” he said.

The laboratory has production publishers, colour printers, specialist printers, scanners, finishers and DigiPath office production software. Trainees can also learn about just-in-time printing, printing-on-demand, and other publishing solutions in a simulated environment, said Xerox.
