Automating the Printing Industry with ERP
The graphic arts industry continues to evolve, with print companies offering services, printing methods, and products that help their customers best communicate their messages, more quickly and in more formats than ever before.
Of all the manufacturing industries, the print industry has the largest number of companies (there are over 20,000 in the U.S. alone), making it hard to stand out from your competition.
While the print industry continues to consolidate, the rise of digital media has had a profound effect on most businesses. Profit margins can be very tight, while savvy customers can get online quotes in minutes, in many cases from print shops that aren’t even local to them.
In many ways it’s harder than ever to differentiate yourself from the competition.
Combine this with the typical challenges of having to generate quotes with speed and accuracy, handle vast numbers of small orders, manage your subcontractors, get precise job costing, eliminate production bottlenecks and ensure real-time communication between your departments – you need a solution that will allow you to automate what you can, reducing human error so you can best serve and keep your customers.
