Business Management - Insourcing
The competition recognizes the best in printing across 53 categories. All entries will be displayed and judged in the Golden Image Gallery during PRINTING United, which is taking place Oct. 23-25 in Dallas.
At Graph Expo, an in-plant luncheon hosted by IPG and sponsored by Rochester Software Associates featured Tom Rohrbach of Progressive Insurance detailing his in-plants efforts to insource more work.
As new business models continue to emerge across the dynamic media landscape, in-plants have an opportunity to take a leadership role in reinforcing their strategic relevance. And some of their best opportunities are in capturing new revenues from insourcing, and developing new services by outsourcing and partnering with external firms.
THE IN-PLANT industry, like many other industries, has been knocked off balance by the economic turmoil of the past several years. As companies have been forced to cut costs, print has been identified as an area of potential cost savings. Gone are the days of 500-page, end-of-year reports and formal printed presentations. These major drivers of print volume have been replaced by documents housed on SharePoint sites and PowerPoint decks to be presented digitally. And now that companies have made this behavioral change, they are unlikely to change back.
