Montreal, Canada, Middleboro, MA. Newton Centre, MA. November 14, 2022, Ultimate TechnoGraphics, leader in imposition and finishing automation software, Enterprise Print Management Solutions (EPMS), a market leading developer of print MIS, and All Systems Integration (ASI), integrated workflow automation solutions provider, showcase end-to-end print workflow automation through a live use case featuring Strategic Factory, named the #1 Small Commercial Printer for 2022 for the second time by PrintingNews and WhatTheyThink!.
Strategic Factory started off as one small, quick-print location and rapidly turned into five. From there, the Maryland-based print company has skyrocketed, and now offers a variety of products and service solutions including printing and mailing, interior and exterior signage, branded apparel, promotional products, graphic design, content writing, and marketing and digital strategy. Their secret? They built a completely automated workflow to optimize print efficiency and productivity.
“Strategic Factory journey to success is very interesting from a technical standpoint”, says John Callahan, Virtual Prepress Workflow Automation Solution Architect at All Systems Integration. “They analyzed every part of their workflow – from estimating to finishing- and looked for a way to automate it. Their story is a great example of the impact of workflow automation on company results.”
On Thursday, November 17th at 10AM EST, participants to this webinar will go behind-the-scenes of Strategic Factory’s operations and discover their end-to-end automated workflow, using EPMS Print MIS Solutions + Ultimate Impostrip® imposition automation software solution + Ultimate Bindery® finishing automation software solution, integrated by All Systems Integration (ASI). In addition to learning how to replicate Strategic Factory’s workflow and build a fully automated workflow, attendees will hear from Jeff Eill, Director of Operational Automation at Strategic Factory, about the implementation process of this integrated system and the real benefits of workflow automation.
“Print providers are more than ever seeking easy and quick ways to automate their businesses”, says Mark Andersen, President of EPMS. “We are proud to be offering an out-of-the-box integrated solution with Ultimate TechnoGraphics that requires little implementation time, allowing printers to witness the powerful impact of end-to-end automation on their bottom line in no time, just like Strategic Factory.”
