New white paper, sponsored by Sabre Limited, highlights 5 Keys to a Successful Print MIS Implementation
WhatTheyThink, the global printing industry's leading independent media organization with both print and digital offerings, today published a new white paper, sponsored by Sabre Limited. Entitled 5 Keys to a Successful Print ERP/MIS Implementation, the white paper is based on interviews with four leading print providers operating in different market segments as well as secondary research conducted by WhatTheyThink. Sabre Limited has been a certified PrintVis Print MIS Reseller in North America since 2017.
Companies interviewed included Canada Ticket, a producer of custom tags and labels for parking, transit, skiing, and reserved seating for theaters and sports venues; ePac, a network of 20 plants with 17 of them in North America producing flexible packaging on demand; Hemlock Printers, a diversified firm that offers offset, digital and wide format printing as well as distribution and fulfillment; and Modern Litho, a well-known commercial and publications printer located in Jefferson City, Missouri. All four companies have selected PrintVis as their Print MIS.
“Selection and effective implementation of a Print MIS solution is arguably one of the most important decisions a printing business will make,” said Cary Sherburne, WhatTheyThink Senior Editor and author of the paper. “It was fascinating to speak to these four companies about how they approached this challenge and what benefits they achieved.”
The 5 keys to success determined through these interviews includes:
- Determine Clear Goals and Objectives
- Do Your Due Diligence
- Make Sure You Have Adequate Resources Available
- Choose Partners that Are Flexible and Committed to Collaborating
- Be Patient
“Each of the companies have very different operations, varying needs for the business, and production management capabilities that a Print MIS has to cover ,” Sherburne continued. “But they all shared these five elements in common. This white paper will be helpful for companies that are looking to implement a new Print MIS or upgrade an existing one. In today’s fast-paced and highly competitive marketplace, having an effective Print MIS in place can be the difference between thriving and surviving.”
