Managing your marketing promotional materials across departments or multiple offices is more challenging than ever, as the shelf life of business communications and market response time have never been shorter or more challenging to manage. A web-to-print online portal, a.k.a. online print ordering, e-procurement, W2P and eCommerce, is a thriving solution that offers a wide range of business types and sizes a clearer path toward greater efficiencies.
According to SearchYourCloud, the average worker conducts up to eight searches to find the right document and information. And nearly 20% of business time – the equivalent of one day per work week – is wasted as employees are searching for the information they need to do their jobs effectively.
An online ordering system allows businesses to streamline the ordering and management of marketing materials and business forms – all on a convenient, customizable and user-friendly website.
The results? Your most current document versions are easily accessed, ensuring accuracy and consistency throughout your organization. Plus, you print what you need, when you need it – eliminating waste and saving time in the order-proof-approval process.
Here are a couple examples of organizations using web-to-print portals to solve some of their business challenges:
- A nationwide restaurant chain needed better brand control and the ability to allow location managers to order products, like menus and apparel. By taking advantage of volume pricing and warehousing services that are part of their web-to-print solution, they also now enjoy fast turnaround from order to delivery while consolidating the management of multiple suppliers.
- With more than 1,000 employees, a university sought ways to reduce costs and effectively manage its marketing collateral and everyday communications materials, like business cards, letterhead and envelopes. Multiple documents easily accessed and customized by employees via their web-to-print site means time and dollars saved.
