You're exactly right, Jennifer. My goal is to ensure that our customer service team has time to provide high-worth, professional customer service instead of filling their day with low-value clerical tasks. Plus, today's print customers seem to prefer self-service and I'm constantly surprised how many orders we receive in the middle of the night and over the weekend when nobody is working at our plant.

Chuck,

Thank you for this comment. It's important to hear printers describe their experience of self-service preferences of their customers. We all need to openly accept that is the growing trend and has been for a long time.
