Only about 5% have a fully automated colour controlled workflow. This means that 95% are processing print jobs inefficiently and are wasting much needed cash.
Most commercial and publishing print markets in most European countries are at best described as ‘soft’. Packaging and functional/industrial print are in more robust health.

strategy – why and how?

With a well-implemented strategy, people are more able to make decisions and resources can be allocated more sufficient to accomplish key objectives. The strategy provides a clear business map defining both goals and ways to achieve those. It will also help to create more space in time with efficiency as result.
