So why is Web to Print so important?

Web2Print solutions are fast becoming essential components of a digital printer’s strategies not just in terms of access, but also sales, marketing and design. The options it offers are also critical tools for overcoming the common burden of major increases in back office administration generated by high volumes of low run, low cost jobs. Most print provider’s administrative processes and conventional management information systems are suited to offset production and struggle with the demands of a digital print environment.

The future of printing: Web to Print

Web to Print is no longer an option; it is a solution print providers simply have to be offering.

Web2Print lets customers comfortably order, upload and preview their jobs online. Print-ready documents can be provided in catalogues, while non-print articles can also be offered for ordering. The application checks whether files are printable, images provided by the customer feature the proper resolution, fonts are embedded, and transparencies have been included. Most Web-to-Print applications let clients customise pre-designed templates and upload their own content for automated print production.

Enabling business through Web to Print

How your in-house print room can profit

In today's networked corporate environments many of the internal processes are already web-based. So why shouldn't in-house printing be as well?

Web to Print (W2P) offers in-house print rooms an exciting opportunity to enhance the efficiency, convenience and speed with which print orders can be placed and implemented. W2P enables print orders to be placed at any time because the print room is open for business 24/7. Besides, W2P makes significant savings possible – both company-wide and within the print room. As most in-house print rooms are run as profit centres, the economic advantages of W2P are particularly important.

How your business will benefit from Web to Print in the print room:

  • Print room open for business 24/7
  • Time and money savings
  • More efficient order processes
  • Extend service to internal customers
  • Order-tracking functionality
  • Higher degree of automation

How an in-house print room profits from Web to Print:

  • Costs cut
  • Profits boosted
  • Productivity increased
  • Order processes streamlined
  • Re-order print jobs easily
  • Relationships with internal customers improved
  • Number of time-consuming enquiries reduced

Cost-cutting self-service is one of the biggest benefits W2P brings to an in-house print room. Can you afford to miss out on this technology?

Why you need to have Web to Print as part of your print skillset?

The trend towards online and cloud computing will affect all of us sooner rather than later, as more and more customers migrate online and expect your business to offer web-based services.

The volume of e-commerce has grown exponentially across the world over the past two decades. Where the number of net users was just 0.4% in 1995, it had jumped to 34.8% by 2012, and was continuing to explode. The most mature market, the US, was still growing at 8% per annum in 2015, while China was due to overtake it in volume terms in 2015 and triple its volume of online trading by 2020.

The potential benefits of this growth trend for the printing industry, in the form of Web2Print, are vast. Web2Print lets Print Service Providers extend their range of print products, offering creative online solutions, providing services such as remote publishing around the clock, and streamlining job processing.
