In Plant Print Operations Face Tough Challenges
A new survey has found that printer ink users which operate in an in-plant capacity face a number of challenges.
The research found that among these, the most prevalent is being seen as a "must-have" facility within the company they work for.
Respondents reported that other issues included the establishment of new services, falling budgets for printer ink and other materials and having to meet certain quality demands while lowering costs.
Members of the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) were also asked about how they were coping in the current economic climate, as well as how they expected the industry to change in the future.
Increased demand for full-colour and black-and-white variable-data printing was noted, as well as web-based and wide format reproduction.
Debbie Pavletich, president of IPMA, said: "In-plants combine cutting-edge print services with a vested interest in their organisation's success."
Last week, Printcountry.com's Print Cartridge Blog offered advice opn how to cut costs when shopping for ink.
