Web to Print - Why Invest?

This workshop will help business owners and principals to make the fundamental decision of whether to invest in a Web to Print solution. It will explore the industry drivers, the strategies that have brought success and highlight the risks, benefits and potential return on investment that Web to Print can bring. Delegates will leave with a clear roadmap to success.

Why attend?
Web to Print is an all-encompassing term for doing the business of ‘print’ over the internet. End users can make print more effective and more efficient by buying online and printers can offer new services at higher margins by providing these solutions. This really is a win-win but it’s important that your strategy is the right one for your business.

Who is it for?
This workshop is designed for business owners and other directors involved in strategy decisions. It is not a technical workshop but it will contain important information about how other communication technologies impact the bottom line of the printing industry.

What will you leave with?

  • A clearer view of the road ahead
  • An understanding of media convergence
  • An understanding of the opportunities
  • An understanding of the risks
  • The compelling value proposition
  • How to avoid the potholes in the road
