Whether you’re a multi-site SME, a large organisation, a national retailer or franchise, managing your print procurement and stock can be a headache. Centralising the fulfilment of all your print requirements will reduce hassle, costs and inconsistencies.
The Clarkeprint Web2Print service includes a bespoke web portal, tailored to your branding, through which users can order print collateral, as and when required. All printed items and merchandise are delivered within service level agreements, giving you peace of mind. This fully interactive solution allows you to manage both your brand and your spend.
The benefits of our Web2Print service include:
Reduced lead times
Minimising demands of print on your administration
Maintaining your brand by ensuring brand guidelines are adhered to
Unlocking working capital by using print on demand
Keeping your marketing collateral up-to-date
Reduced wastage and keeping control of your finished goods stock
Accessibility at all times, across all platforms
With the ability to set user spending limits and put in place a requirement for an approvals protocol on orders, you can very easily control the level of your spend in specific departments, brands or regions and across the country.
Like many public e-commerce websites, the portal will cost-as-you-go, when ordering. This encourages users to be mindful of their print spend, even where a spending limit is not in place.
It may be true that the more you print the less you spend, per unit, but who says you need to receive them all at once? We can produce and store a high volume of printed items and make the material available to order on the portal, storing the remaining stock in our warehouse until needed.
You’ll have effective stock control too, with accurate stock reporting available 24/7. It’s not just print you can store either, we can store a range of items – such as promotional ware – along with your printed materials and make them all available to order through your Web2Print portal.
New Content Made Easy
We can simplify the process of creating new or personalised content for print. By utilising templates for your frequently used literature, such as brochures, banners, leaflets and business cards, users can alter the content of printed materials to their requirements and upload the pdf into the portal.
Instant PDF proofing and approvals mean that orders enter production as soon as the order is placed and proof approval rights can be restricted to managers, with email notifications as orders are placed.
Use of templated designs and approval restrictions help you to ensure that all materials adhere to your brand guidelines, prior to printing.
All the way to fulfilment
We recognise that mailing fulfilment can be a substantial drain on in-house time and resources, and that’s why users can order postal mailings directly through the portal. By selecting all the materials for the mailing and uploading a correctly formatted CSV of the addressee data, Clarkeprint will conduct the mailing on the user’s behalf.
Is Web2Print for you?
If your organisation uses a range of marketing products, and has multiple locations with multiple users, you will almost certainly save time and money by using a Web2Print solution. This solution is particularly beneficial to franchise-type operations and larger organisations with multiple sites across different geographic locations.
