Print on-demand solution eliminated overhead; increased cash flow
Madison, WI - (ISC)2 recently launched a print on-demand solution, with help from Omnipress, in order to deliver course materials to more than 135 countries.
Headquartered in the United States and offices in London, Hong Kong and Tokyo, (ISC)2 provides vendor neutral education products, career services, and Gold Standard credentials to professionals via instructor-led training and live online delivery formats.
(ISC)2 had previously been using a print and inventory model which required a large financial payout upfront and decreased their profitability of the courses. They also were spending unnecessary money on having books stored and shipped from four different locations, making it even more difficult to measure the true cost of producing and delivering the printed course materials.
They have now enlisted the help of Omnipress, who helped switch them to the new print on-demand model. Under the new print and fulfillment process eliminated the need to print, ship and store materials to four different locations worldwide. Omnipress' Print On-Demand program was able to help (ISC)2 do the following:
- Reduce the cost of printing and shipping course materials by 60% for instructor-led training courses
- Increase (ISC)2's cash flow. They now pay monthly on a know set of receivables instead of paying for an entire year in advance
- Monitor all shipping and tracking information through a central online portal
"Working with Omnipress is more than hiring a print company. They are a partner that cares about providing a quality product and upholds the old world thinking of customer service. They are always available to discuss options and solutions to known issues. We truly enjoy working with them and look forward to increasing our deliverables and expanding our education options.”
