Operations

The print market is becoming increasingly commoditized with print prices in decline and margins being eroded year on year. Print companies are finding it hard to win new business and create customer value. Therefore it is essential that they run a ruthlessly efficient and fully automated production environment in order to remain competitive. The latest industry trends show that less than 20% of printers have a fully automated colour managed workflow, which means that 80% have a great opportunity to reduce cost and become more productive and profitable. The operations content enables companies to identify areas for operational improvement and deliver practical results using the tools and guides available.
