Print Management Is Friend, not Foe
The global printing industry has a number of structural inefficiencies, including:
- the high percentage of jobs being produced somewhere other than the plant with the optimal manufacturing platform,
- wide fluctuations in plant capacity utilization, and
- significant price discrimination.
As these and other macro issues correct over time, the structure of our industry will change. The relatively recent emergence of print management is one of the most important new developments in the flow of today’s print supply chain, and projections call for huge growth in this channel over the coming years.
