INFORMATION is fundamental
In an ever more competitive business environment, timely access to accurate information is an important factor for the success of an organization. Reliable and independent providers of information are valuable business partners.
To gather, analyze and structure information, so that sensible conclusions can be drawn and strategic options can be developed, is a fundamental task for any organisation. The capacity to do so ultimately determines the entity's eventual success.
The security printing industry is exposed to a number of challenges, which could be triggered by technical innovations from inside or outside the industry, or which could slowly evolve over a longer period of time, like, for example:
New Innovative Solutions: Innovative solutions provide benefits, e.g. higher security of the document they are applied on, or lower production or handling cost, or a smaller carbon footprint.
Alternative Payment Methods: Changes in the payment behaviour of the public, made possible by developments mostly in the mobile telecommunications industry (mobile payments, mobile money, etc) expose issuing authorities and the security printing industry to new challenges. What will be the impact of such developments, and how should issuing authorities and the industry react to them? What options are available?
Regional Developments: A country's population growth, technical & economic development, migration influx, and other factors influence the way banknotes & ID documents will be used by the public, and therefore, how banknotes and IDs should be specified and managed along their lifecycle. But which are the key parameters that should be considered, and how do they impact the specification of the banknotes or ID documents?
Information on above mentioned topics is vital when it comes to decision making. Reliable and timely access to information is an asset, both for issuing authorities as well as for market players of the industry.
