What is Enterprise Print Management?
It’s a guarantee of savings in printing costs and measurable improvements in the management of your company’s printed business communications operations.
Is Enterprise Print Management (EPM) right for you?
Consider the following facts…
If your company’s annual revenues range from $20 million to $2 billion, your printing costs can reach six digit sums, not including the cost to procure, process and handle the printed document.
Consider what your company spends annually on:
- Business Forms
- Self Adhesive Labels
- Advertising Giveaways
- Stationary Items
- Commercial Printing
Many companies don’t know:
- How much they spend on their printed materials
- How many printed pieces they order every year and who in the organization used the material
- What percentage of printed materials become obsolete before being used
- The inventory carrying costs of warehoused printed materials
This basic lack of information makes it impossible to assess return on investment, improve efficiency and manage costs.
