Hi Tech

Xerox

CASE STUDY:

THE CHALLENGE:


Xerox

needed a next
-
generation roller for its
color printer that would have a significantly
longer life span.

THE INSIGHT:


“[
Santokh
]
Badesha

notes that the new rollers
also will reduce or eliminate the need for a
certain type of oil in the printing process. This
unintended benefit has a multiplier effect


not
only has Xerox found a solution to prolonging
the life of its product, it likely has hit on a way to
reduce its carbon footprint.”

THE OUTCOME:


A solution was found in the
Michigan Molecular Institute.
MMI had a material
unrelated to the printing
industry that could be
adapted to meet Xerox’s
need.

Hallmark

CASE STUDY:

THE CHALLENGE:


Hallmark

physical communications medium into the digital
world. The technology would enable a user to
augment their personal expressions with digital
platforms.

THE APPROACH:


Proposals were received from North and South
America, Europe, Asia, Oceania and the Middle
East. Many respondents expressed an eagerness to
work with Hallmark since they were named on the
RFP. The client short
-
listed five or six interesting
responses and ultimately selected a German
provider,
Metaio
.

THE OUTCOME:


Hallmark worked with
Metaio

to get cards with
the new technology on the
market in time for
Mother’s Day 2010.

Some parting thoughts….


There is now an opportunity to apply lessons from industry’s
experience with Open Innovation to help drive new sources of
innovation for government programs.


We want to help government teams reach the best technologies and
get beyond the usual suspects.


Industry welcomes collaboration with government. Please join us as
we build our strategic direction in partnership with industry.
