According to a NAPCO Research study, workflow automation enables printing and packaging companies to enhance job profitability, improve productivity, and better serve customers. It is a new decade, and automation is moving manufacturing towards minimal human interaction as companies seek more efficient workflows. The printing and packaging industry is no different. There is a direct correlation of shaving time off workflows to increased profitability of your printing business. If you have a highly efficient and reliable print production workflow, profitability is the logical consequence.
Key survey findings of the NAPCO report:
- More automated manufacturers experience higher revenue and sales growth compared to those that are less automated.
- Investing in automation improves print production throughput.
- Firms with higher automation tend to produce work in faster timeframes than those with less automation.
- Workflow automation increases job profitability.
- Automation reduces the number manual job touches that can lead to potential mistakes and costs for reworking job.
How complex is integrating new technology that can enhance your workflow? It depends on the unique business, but vendors who offer MIS/ERP systems with decades of experience in implementation have an edge over the numerous newcomers to the workflow management software sector.
MIS/ERP providers who offer tailor-made solutions not only accelerate production printing, it brings in real benefits such as labor savings and most important of all customer satisfaction. When workflows are automated, your printed product can move quickly from order to fulfilment – resulting in happy customers. When print production is optimized, bottlenecks are eliminated and, again, your job moves quickly.
What’s more, these solutions are not just for the big companies, any general commercial printer can benefit greatly from automated print production workflow tools and techniques. The key is finding the correct MIS/ERP vendor that can provide the tools, training, and support that your company needs.
