Purchase Ultimate Guide to Variable Data Publishing Solutions

Many marketers are taking advantage of Variable Data Publishing (VDP), as this highly effective marketing mechanism delivers the kind of proven results that they are looking for. It also presents an important value-added service that service providers can leverage to differentiate themselves in the marketplace and increase the value for their customers.

While these benefits are prompting many print service providers to implement variable data into their offerings, choosing a variable data publishing software solution can be quite difficult. The solution landscape is quite fragmented with over a dozen vendors offering various levels of functionalities and price points. Solutions span the gamut from basic mail merge-type applications to software for data-driven “on-the-fly” marketing documents to solutions for complex, high-volume transaction print environments.

InfoTrends’ Ultimate Guide to Variable Data Publishing Solutions focuses on solutions that enable personalization of a wide range of applications, from business correspondence and marketing collateral to promotional direct mail.  A number of factors need to be taken into account when choosing the right VDP solution for your business, such as:

  • What VDP business strategy your company has in place
  • What types of personalized applications you are going to be creating with your VDP solution
  • What type of output requirements you need to consider

This must-have guide will help service providers and creative professionals ask the right questions within their own organization to ensure that they find the solution that is the best fit for their business. It also outlines important questions to ask software vendors during the purchasing process.

The Ultimate Guide to Variable Data Publishing Solutions is just one report in a series of Ultimate Guide reports aimed at educating print service providers on the variety of software tools available for printing and print-related services. Ultimate Guides to Web-to-print and multi-channel communications solutions are also currently available, and guides focused on TransPromo and wide format will be available soon.
