Print Workflow Software
Get Speed, Productivity and Cost Control with an ERP/MIS for Commercial Printers
Changes bring new opportunities
The world of print is changing – and it is happening with increasing speed. Jobs are more complex, more personalized, with customer demands which stretch the limits of a printer’s creativity and technology.
Turnaround times are shorter, and printers are finding themselves becoming “one-stop shops” for their customers in order to keep them. Many commercial printers are adding other capabilities to keep brands happy. In a NAPCO survey of nearly 250 commercial printers surveyed, 40% stated they either have added label printing capabilities or are considering it, 37% of commercial printers eying folding cartons, 32% exploring flexible packaging, and 29% considering corrugated.
How can PSPs integrate all of the plant and business demands of being that one-stop shop for customers?
