Many times, an in-plant has difficulty justifying equipment to improve their current product delivery or add additional product capabilities to their organization.
This may be the result of a lack of understanding by management or a lack of a corroborating third party to evaluate and “score” the financial benefit of the expenditure.
Through our benchmarking tools and understanding of the printing industry, we are in a unique position to assist the in-plant in justifying the addition of equipment, software and other resources.
