Free WhatTheyThink webinar, sponsored by CHILI publish, discusses the impact of pure-play cloud-based web-to-print solutions
WhatTheyThink today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry educational webinar, The Uber-ization of Web to Print. The session will be moderated by WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne and feature three panelists who benefited from implementing next-generation web-to-print solutions that improve their business processes and deliver an exceptional customer experience. The session is scheduled for Wednesday, February 1st, from 11:00 AM to noon EST (-5 GMT).
“Our panelists will discuss how they have implemented pure-play cloud solutions, developed from the ground up to operate in an open environment and to easily integrate with other applications.,” said Sherburne. “This allows suppliers to focus on their individual areas of expertise and printing firms to leverage a variety of modules to round out the total solution by picking and choosing the components that will make up a workflow that meets their needs with minimal internal software development required. What we are seeing is the Uber-ization of web to print.”
Sherburne will be joined by:
- Michael Heerkens, CTO at Helloprint, one of the fastest growing ecommerce platforms in the Benelux with more than 130 employees. The company primarily serves small businesses, the SOHO market and does business with the trade. Print is produced through its network of more than 150 suppliers in eight countries.
