Web-to-Print 2.0 Seminar Presenters
"The goal is for printers to gain a true competitive advantage in the market. There's a bit of art, as well as science, in that," says CHILI Publish's CMO, Bram Verniest. He continues, "We want the event to trigger the thought process, accordingly, and so putting a focus on solutions and service so easy and efficient that they seem to 'run in the background' is the first step in cementing a true bond with customers. The magic comes from the fact that this nonintrusive, unassuming web-to-print interface is just that -- an interface. Underneath are the four best of breed solutions, which together accelerate workflow efficiency beyond printers' wildest dreams.
"The exponential benefit brought by the combined strength of these four applications is substantial," Verniest says. "We look forward to sharing more details with our friends in the Milwaukee and Los Angeles areas next month!"

Commentary by Cary Sherburne
It is pretty exciting to see this combination of suppliers to the industry joining together to put on a web-to-print seminar. It looks like they have the bases covered: digital asset management, robust online editing capability, workflow automation and ecommerce.
If you are in either the Milwaukee or Los Angeles areas, these seminars should be well worth attending, even if you already have a customer-facing web solution in place, but especially if you are looking to replace an existing one or are just getting into the game.
Doing business online is increasingly becoming table stakes for printing companies, and the breadth of content covered in this seminar should bring plenty of actionable ideas to attendees that can help sort out the decision making and implementation processes. As has been referenced in much that both Jennifer Matt and I have written in this space, simply receiving jobs over the Internet is not sufficient. You must look at the entire process, from concept through shipping and invoicing, and find ways to streamline, taking time and cost out of the process for you and making it “green button” simple for your customers.
These seminars appear to be a good place to start.
