Automation Basics for the Life of Your Workflow
For print providers, workflow is the difference between profitability and success or losing ground and revenue in an increasingly competitive business environment,
Tackling this issue head-on, a new white paper from Aleyant, a leading developer of print software designed to streamline and simplify commercial print operations, poses key questions for owners of print businesses. These include:
● Are competitors’ offering lower costs that can be traced to superior workflows, and how can a print provider match or better the competition?
● How can you help customers take advantage of profitable capabilities such as variable data printing?
● How would business change if staff were more productive and could help develop new and more profitable opportunities?
Streamlining a print operation once meant optimizing manual and physical operations, mostly moving paper from one device to another. Most print providers have done a very good job with the physical side of this, but in an age of consolidation and an increasingly competitive business environment—when everything that can become digital is becoming digital—just streamlining manual processes is no longer enough.
But it is the foundation of a truly efficient and profitable automated workflow.
Aleyant’s new white paper, Is Your Print Shop Automated Yet? What Are You Waiting For? provides guidelines for taking the first steps to creating and implementing a modular, powerful workflow that positions print providers to compete not only with local print businesses but with high-profile web-based commodity operations that are stealing market share from small to mid-sized commercial printers across North America.
Read the paper to learn how to think big while starting small, how to add automated job submission, estimating, eCommerce, and simplify variable data printing. You’ll find out how you can significantly streamline prepress and ways of enhancing MIS/ERP systems. In every instance, you’ll learn how automation can trim time and labor throughout virtually any offset or digital print operation while adding efficiency and profitability.
And, do this all without giving up the control that makes your business unique.
