IDS Making the Right Business Decisions

The State of Colorado State Printer, Mike Lincoln, has secured the right equipment for the everyday needs of their internal customers and the citizens of Colorado. 

When people hear the word printing, they think it is a dying business. In reality, the printing industry continues to evolve tenfold and provides new technology, new resources, and more solutions for customer needs and wants. That is why anyone in the printing business better keep moving forward, or they will fade fast – including government shops. 

The State of Colorado Department of Personnel & Administration’s (DPA) Division of Central Services (DCS) unit, Integrated Document Solutions (IDS), provides services related to the life cycle of a document to all types of government agencies throughout the state of Colorado, including state, county, city, and local municipalities. Achieving this growing customer base took many years of finding the right solutions to support these new partners in balance with all State agency needs.

IDS is a signature part of the group helping governments stay on top of the printing market. And that is where the Colorado State Printer/IDS Northern Regional Manager, Mike Lincoln, and Gilbert Gomez, IDS Variable Data Designer, come into play. 

Lincoln and Gomez took some time to sit down with Solimar Systems and INKISH TV to share the State of Colorado’s workflow and automation journey involving the support of Ricoh’s inkjet printer, Tecnau’s binding equipment, and Solimar’s software.
