What is the value of lost business? Do you have the right finishing to tackle cost reduction by reducing wasted time and wasted print, while meeting customer demands for quality and fast turnaround?
How do you position against competitors? Are you offering something different and creative to inspire your clients, or are you chasing the same work trying to undercut other suppliers at the lowest margin? If you are doing the latter, then congratulations, as most businesses doing this have already closed the shutters!
How efficient are your processes? It’s important to consider the role that finishing will play in your production process, not only the printing technology you need. In the current circumstances every business is under pressure to look at ways to achieve more with more automation, minimal touchpoints and with less workers. A highly automated finishing solution may be the key to achieving this.
With the right tools such as Duplo’s range of cutter creasers replace the time associated with a conventional guillotine, creaser, perforator, die cutter suited to long runs from offset print production and take pressure off the bottlenecks, require less operators and less space. Explore new opportunities to reduce production costs, automate, and optimise the machine’s features to suit profitable applications and the new ways of working with COVID-19.
Finishing capabilities can differentiate businesses and contribute significantly to sales revenues. If print providers want to maximise productivity and differentiation, they need to pay attention to the value and benefits that finishing brings to their business.
