CirclePrinters selects DiMS! as their enterprise MIS solution

Press release from the issuing company

Lichtenvoorde, the Netherlands - CirclePrinters, leading independent printing group headquartered in Amsterdam with operations and sales offices across Europe, has selected DiMS! as their enterprise-wide ERP/MIS solution. An extensive benchmark study among the global MIS vendors across the world showed that DiMS! was the clear winner on all their main criteria; partnership, technical and feature wise. Michel Guichard, CFO of CirclePrinters: “I am convinced that with DiMS! we will improve our operations’ productivity, achieve a group synergy and have good ground for the next consolidation move.”
CirclePrinters looked at several potential MIS solutions, of which three in more detail. The shortlist contained three global players, but rather early in the selection process, they found that the other two were clearly not an option for them. “DiMS! was basically stronger on all criteria. It matches closest with our needs, has by far the most features and a good economic basis. In terms of a long-term relationship it was clearly the best option for our organization”, says Guichard. On the question what he found most appealing about the system, Guichard answers: “Conceptually I like the fact that the system has more than 25 years of experience and continuous improvements within the graphic arts industry and that its entire IT structure is very well developed. This, together with the fact that many key players on the worldwide print market use it, convinced us that this was the right choice.”
Enterprise approach

From the start, CirclePrinters clearly opted for an  end-to-end, enterprise-wide IT approach. “All our locations have the same needs regarding improved insight into their operations and by implementing one system, we meet their local needs while simultaneously replacing various independent software and have a clear company-wide overview. With DiMS!, we will be able to have a real group approach for the first time and obtain the synergies we're aiming for.”, says Guichard.
Growth through consolidation

CirclePrinters’ strategy revolves around the need to consolidate the printing industry both at a country and European levels and they want to take a leading role in this. The company believes that DiMS! is the perfect tool to support them in this growth process. “I am convinced that the DiMS! tool will successfully facilitate our consolidation route. It allows us to integrate each acquisition seamlessly into our culture and also delivers immediate insight into the company’s figures, so a fast synergy is quickly established”, concludes Guichard.
