business health check

It is a statistical fact that print companies are finding it harder than ever to make money and to stop margins being constantly eroded. Another fact of life is that the majority of print companies could run much more efficient and profitable businesses if they just stopped and thought for a second.

“Realize that you only have very minimal control and influence over external factors, especially fighting against the bigger trends like, migration to digital media, technology transition, fluctuation and change in end market prices and demand. However what you do have complete control over is what happens internally within your business and the level of professionalism, process and accountability, which you choose to adopt.”
