OKC In-plant Growing Thanks to Web-to-Print
A new customer spotlight article from edu Business Solutions focuses on Eric Nazim, manager of Print and Mail Services for the City of Oklahoma City. The in-plant produces between 4-5 million annual impressions, but Nazim has a post-pandemic goal of reaching and maintaining 6.1 million impressions annually with an average of 300 jobs per month. Toner-based color printing makes up roughly two-thirds of monthly print sales with the remainder coming from monochrome and wide-format printing. (The in-plant recently installed a 64ʺ HP Latex 570 wide-format printer and cutter.)
Using Print Shop Pro has greatly enhanced the in-plant’s ability to handle this work.
“It took a while to train users to shift from emailing orders to submitting work online,” says Nazim. “With the implementation of this submission process, mistakes are largely eliminated as customers can see what they are submitting.” The best feature of PSP, and the one his customers really like, he says, is the ability to easily reorder jobs in Webdesk.
