Effective print management is rapidly becoming the preferred print buying model as companies realise the many benefits of working with a trusted single-source supplier. In time print management will change the print landscape forever. Print management is about highly effective buying, streamlined ordering, and efficient stock control. Done correctly, this could have a significant impact on your business profits – and that’s not an idle boast!
Securing the services of a print management company like Triform can completely revolutionise the way your printed collateral is sourced, bought, stored and delivered. It will certainly free up your personnel to concentrate on the core areas of your business, lessen the headaches of managing multiple suppliers, and importantly, you will never run out of printed stock again.
Keeping your print management in house could be costing more than you might imagine. Over order and you have cash tied up in printed collateral which sits on your warehouse shelves taking up valuable space and most likely gathering dust. Under order and this will lead to last-minute panic buying which inevitably results in paying premium prices, and worst of all, mission-critical print not being delivered on time.
So what does a print management company do?
With nearly 30 years in the business of print management, we have built a trusted network of over 300 approved print specialists, all of which are ISO 9001 accredited. Because we handle such a broad spectrum of print, often in large volumes, our purchasing power is considerable, which enables us to buy at extremely competitive prices. Our clients are able to see the real value in this over a period of time when cost savings are evident in increased profitability. Of course, buying print isn’t only about price, we offer a commitment to uphold print quality thus ensuring brand consistency across all materials.
We will audit your entire print requirement across your business and build up a detailed picture of your day to day operation and the printed collateral you use. We will then put together a print forecast model based on your historic usage. From this, we set an agreed order quantity for each item based on this data, so optimum quantities of each item are printed and held in stock ready for call-off.
We also store and distribute this material for you. No longer will you have print material filling up your warehouse or have to worry about the logistics of getting it delivered to the required site. Simply call off the stock and our experienced logistics team will pick, pack and arrange for it to be delivered. Once the stock has reduced to a pre-agreed quantity, it is automatically re-ordered, so the onus of remembering to do this is firmly on our shoulders, and it guarantees that stock will always be available.
Let the facts speak for themselves
Since 2012, we have been providing asset management for Superdry. Previously they had their own warehouse and logistics team which managed all of their print and point of sale (POS) stock. As the business grew, they found that they had less and less space to store the products that they sell, so they outsourced the management of store assets to us. We now store and supply over 400 printed and core products to 241 stores worldwide. As new stores open, or seasonal POS items are required, we are able to pick, pack and deliver everything that the store needs. As a result, this has released valuable warehousing and personnel to handle their core retail products.
