Printing companies today have to navigate the requirements of shorter run lengths, faster turnaround times and increasing costs, all while facing relatively stable print prices and higher consumables prices. With all of these challenges, it’s virtually impossible to maintain, yet alone increase, profitability without making changes to your current business model or operations. So what’s a printer to do?
The key to your profitability and the solution to your current challenges may be no further than your workflow. When evaluating your current workflow, you should consider whether or not it drives positive impact on six key areas of your business:
Enhancing Customer Interaction
Driving Productivity and Uptime
Reducing Waste and Inventory
Optimizing Consistency and Repeatability
Providing Business Intelligence
If your workflow is helping with some but not all of these areas, then it may be time to consider a new alternative. Heidelberg’s Prinect provides state-of-the-art solutions to achieve ALL of these goals. Our newest product, Prinect Production Manager, is changing the way you think about workflow. It’s an innovative way of delivering the software you need to run your facility and was developed as a complete, all-encompassing solution. Production Manager includes a complete production workflow, Management Information System (MIS), as well as Business Intelligence. This is all provided under a simple subscription model.
While Production Manager allows you access to the full suite of Prinect products, we know that one size does not fit all. We’ll start by meeting with you to determine your business’s actual requirements. Based on this consultation, the selected Prinect modules are installed, hardware provided as necessary and training is carried out. Of course – you will only be charged for these as you would for any workflow installation. You are not limited by what you choose to install in your primary consultation, however. Production Manager will still provide you with full access to Prinect solutions to optimize your business and production operations. As additional functionality is needed or as Prinect expands into other areas, the only prerequisite to add more is the appropriate installation and training for the new products1.
With Prinect Production Manager, there are no more licensing costs – resulting only in upfront costs related to installation, training and hardware. The monthly costs for Prinect Production Manager are based on what you actually use. The costs include a base fee (with an included number of square meter TIFF’s) and an additional charge based on the number of square meter TIFF’s produced above the base level.
Included with Prinect Production Manager are technical support, all fixes and upgrades, which ensure that you not only have the latest version, but also the newest Prinect suite introductions that are continually being developed. As new seats, portals etc. are needed, you can add them easily at no additional license charge1.
Prinect Production Manger provides a complete solution to your company’s workflow challenges in an easily deployable and scalable solution – allowing you to fully utilize its capabilities and leverage them in your quest for profitability.
