Print Software

This section of WhatTheyThink aggregates all of the news, educational content, and analysis about the software that drives print businesses, from order entry through shipping and invoicing. It is combined in a single area so that our members and the industry as a whole can go to a single place to learn how software is changing the business of print and gain actionable ideas on how they may apply new solutions to their own business problems.

Articles

Give Your Employees Better Tools (Premium Content)

New software tools are often rejected because the humans feel like their jobs are being replaced by computers. Software does math better, faster, and more accurately than humans—that is not debatable. But new tools augment brainpower—not replace it.


The Importance of Uninterrupted Time in a Print Business (Premium Content)

Your print business is being invaded by software tools. These tools require a level of thinking/concentration that requires blocks of uninterrupted time for your employees. Without this uninterrupted time, your software will remain grossly underutilized and lacking measurable ROI.


Here Comes the Flood—Going Live with Print Software (Premium Content)

Think of your go-live date for your Print MIS as a flood. Prepare for it by training everyone how to create sandbags and then monitoring that everyone actually applied the learning and figured out how to do their jobs in the new system BEFORE go-live.


Saving $1 Million with Workflow

Although printers acknowledge that dealing with a high number of small jobs is a major workflow bottleneck, many have not automated their processes. This article offers some quick tips for getting started with automating processes to aid employees and benefit customers.


Learning Through Engagement at Print Vendor User Conferences (Premium Content)

User conferences are a great way to change your perspective and get a break from your day-to-day activities. The learning happens when you engage with both the presenters and the participants.


All or Nothing with Print Software (Premium Content)

When buying and implementing print software, start with the simple jobs software does well, implement and learn. Do not get stuck in a myriad of “use case exceptions” as an excuse to do nothing. You will never get ROI and you’ll never find software that can do everything.
