DNP Reorganizes Total Solutions Creative Organization

Integrates 3 existing operation departments as Information Solutions Operations

 

Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) is pleased to announce that as of October 1, 2012 the company has integrated Information Communications Operations, IPS Operations and CBS Operations into a newly created organization to be known as Information Solutions Operations. This reorganization has been implemented with a view to enhancing customer facing capabilities and competitiveness of the information communications sector.  

[Background and Objective]

The printing and network related information communications business has seen major shifts in operating climate amidst a changing business environment that includes alterations in social and consumer sense of values, and this has led to a diversification in the products and services. In particular, competition is becoming increasingly severe between IT service companies and software development companies. In order to win out in this competition it has become important to offer solutions taking full advantage of the strengths of DNP. The decision to integrate these three in-house divisions has been taken from the standpoint of creating a system capable of offering solutions that more fully answer the dictates of client needs. We are confident this can be achieved by reaping further depth from the expertise developed over many years by each corporate division and forming broader lateral links between each area of expertise.  

[Business Contents of Existing 3 Operation Departments]

Information Communications Operations provide products and services that facilitate more effective corporate sales promotions targeting mainly manufacturers and retailers. This includes not only the printing of flyers and catalogues, but taking that printed data and using it to promote Cross Media Communication Operations that distribute information to websites for computers, mobile phones and smartphones, along with digital signage.

IPS Operations provide the highest level security base in the industry for products and services related to mission critical information at companies and personal consumer data, such as the variable printing offered by information processing services for IC cards and account statements mainly for financial institutions. IPS Operations also offers business outsourcing services, such as account statement and card personalization related data processing, personal data printing and the inserting and sealing of mail and shipping of the same.
