FLAAR offers a variety of consulting services for individuals and companies in the inkjet printing industry. FLAAR consultantDr. Nicholas Hellmuth can conduct his consultation services on-location anywhere around the globe.ÃÃÂ He has consulted in Japan, China, Taiwan, Korea, Latin America, Europe, Turkey, and across the United States and Canada.ÃÃÂ
Dr. Hellmuth was educated at Harvard, trained at Yale (Dept. of Art History), and received his Ph.D. in art history from Karl-Franzens UniversitÃÂ¤t (Graz, Austria).
Dr. Hellmuth and his team consult primarily on wide-format inkjet printers, inks, media, lamination, RIP software and color management. He is considered as an expert in giclee, decor, signage with solvent, eco-solvent, mild-solvent, UV printing and textile printing. He also consults on image capture (scanners, advanced digital cameras, etc). Dr. Hellmuth's consulting services are valuable for manufacturers, distributors, dealers of any size, franchise owners, as well as print shop owners, operators, and individuals.ÃÃÂ
The difference between reading the FLAAR reports and web site, compared to retaining Dr. Hellmuth for an on-site visit, is that he can provide fresh information not yet published in the written reports, or posted on the web sites. Therefore, an on-site consultation with Dr. Hellmuth is invaluable to keeping up with the latest trends and technologies in professional printing.
FLAAR on-site professional consulting services are available auf Deutsch, en EspaÃÂ±ol, and in English. Dr Hellmuth can also read and understand some Italian, some Portuguese and basic French. Consulting includes selecting one of three options that best fits your business needs:
Option 1:ÃÃÂ Arrive in your city the night before to settle in.ÃÃÂ Consulting begins in the morning anytime from breakfast onward and may continue into a working and/or social evening meal. FLAAR consultant returns back to the university the following day (redeye flights into Toledo are not readily available). Hence there are two overnights but maximized time for consulting and getting to know each other during the entire day of meetings.
New Option: questions-and-answers directly and in person with Dr Hellmuth
We have a new option to spread out your consulting over a one to two month period, whereby you can ask questions during this period (so not limited to just one single day). This option is described in the downloadable PDF on consulting with FLAAR.
Market Analysis, Marketing Survey Data, etc.
FLAAR also offers market survey information and product analysis for ink, media, hardware, and software manufacturers. FLAAR's market information can help your business focus on the features end-users are most happy with or would like to see improved.
This contact information is only for opening up a professional consulting appointment either with Dr. Hellmuth coming to your company or for setting up a visit to FLAAR's facilities. In either case a professional consulting fee relationship is understood.
FLAAR serves as consultant for Fortune 500 companies as well as companies who wish to reach that level. Because about 100,000 people every month read the FLAAR reports on our dozen web sites it is not possible to respond to fax inquiries unless to establish a professional relationship on a fee basis.
If you are an individual, a small business, as well as a large company, we reply to the Inquiry-Survey Form usually within 48 hours, so submitting the form via e-mail is the best way to contact us. There is no cost for the e-mail service.
Please understand that due to the size of the readership it is not realistic to handle inquiries by telephone unless we have a working relationship with your company initiated by your fax followed by a day of consulting at your place or at FLAAR's home facility.
We accept inquiries in EspaÃÂ±ol, Deutsch, and in English
