You just made one of your toughest decisions and purchased a new print management system for your
business. Or maybe you have a system you just can’t seem to get fully utilized.
A print management system is a major capital investment by any measure. It requires a significant amount
of resources and commitment to implement, easily costing you thousands of hours and dollars. When
properly utilized, a business management system will provide generous paybacks to your printing
organization by reducing costs, improving productivity, improving customer relations, increasing
profits, and empowering your people with timely and useful information. Many printers stake their
competitiveness, financial stability, and future on the outcome. The risks can be high.
