support during the Covid-19 crisis

We are all going to face unprecedented challenges in the coming weeks and months. To help prokom members through this period of uncertainty, we will be focusing all of our resources towards specific and continuing support for your business. Our aim is to help our members overcome the challenges ahead despite reductions in demand and personal contact restrictions between suppliers and customers.

crisis print network group

Many Prokom members are struggling due to the Coronavirus. There are two key reasons:
– Fulfilling print orders (because plants have shut)
– Finding creative ways to drive print demand and keep sales up

 Our hope is that Prokom members will step up to the plate, by supplying print and related services to other members who have had to shut their plants and support each other by sharing ideas and advice. The goal is very simple? We are trying to keep members families fed and businesses alive during these challenging times. In addition we are going to create a LinkedIn Prokom Print Group, with a directory of members who are open for business. We will forward any print enquiries we get from this group and let any members who say “I’m open, I can help” take it from there. Please provide us with your basic information as well as making sure you complete your member profile.

We’re doing this to help our members. If we support each other, together we will get through this!

automation

When processes are automated they’re more efficient and cost effective. It’s a simple fact but it’s one that printers seem to have mixed views on. They either wholeheartedly embrace automation, or ignore it preferring to have a little bit of automation but not a totally automated workflow.

how to segment your markets

Hot Topic
