Press release from the issuing company
PITTSBURGH, PA (October 9, 2001) -- printCafeTM, the operating system for printTM, in conjunction with CreoScitex, will host four seminars guiding printing professionals on how to manage their businesses to maximize profits. The half-day seminars are being offered to printCafe and CreoScitex customers and guests, and will take place from October 16-19 for one day each in Phoenix, Los Angeles, Portland, and San Francisco.
Stuart Margolis, expert on the financial needs of the graphic arts industry, will provide practical tools, tips, and best practices to enhance productivity, business performance, and profits. Margolis is best known for the Printing Industries of America (PIA) Ratio Studies, the industry's annual financial benchmark tool. Margolis is also the author of "A Printers Guide to Profits, 1-2-3 The Key: Value Added Financial Management" and the guide "A Printers Chart of Accounts," published by the PIA.
"Printing professionals today are balancing a multitude of tasks," said Margolis. "And trying to manage these activities to improve profitability is a huge challenge especially when competition is fierce and the economy is at a low point. But now is not the time to sit back and hope for the best. We plan to offer tangible advice about real tactics to get print businesses fit to meet the short-term obstacles and in the best possible shape to take the future by storm."
"Companies that best understand their spending, budgets, performance, and productivity are the companies that will win," said Andy Schaer, senior vice president of marketing for printCafe.
