Susan - thanks for reading. I know you're living this with the printers you're implementing. It would be nice if we all (vendors and printers) prepared more by prioritizing LEARNING so we can be nice and dry after go-live ;-)

Spot on as usual! MIS trainers skilled, in not just their MIS software but real-world print shop experience, is another sandbag to have in your implementation arsenal.
