Case Studies...

ON DEMAND -- A multi-million dollar manufacturing division of a Fortune 500 Corporation found themselves with a massive inventory of forms, manuals, documentation, and marketing materials. We introduced the 'print on-demand' concept and they were able to eliminate their internal warehouse space and convert it into other productive uses.
-- As importantly, within two years we helped them reduce their printing purchases 25% and reduce those costs $250,000. In the next five years, with our joint efforts and our 'just-in-time' print scheduling, we reduced their print purchases to $350,000. annually (a 65% cost reduction) while their business has continued to grow and expand.

FORMS MANAGEMENT -- A publicly-traded medical services company with 80 healthcare clinics in 25 states required a solution and alternative for the traditional method of forms, manuals, and marketing material being procured in each local market, independent of a central control system. Their costs were out of control and there was no consistency in the appearance or quality of printed products from location to location.
-- Our forms management system was instrumental in consolidating hundreds of similar-purpose forms into less than one-hundred standardized forms. After ten months of research, revision, and planning an order entry and print-on-demand system was put into place. The printing expenditures were reduced from over $500,000 to about $300,000 in the first year that the plan was implemented. Similar percentage expenditure advantage gains were achieved with marketing and collateral material.
