Workflow Automation and a Conversation on Today’s Cross Media
Today’s leading in-plants have the ability to be nimble, highly efficient and fully capable of meeting the customer’s ever-growing demands. It’s about achieving faster turn times, improved efficiency, and offering a broader range of highly advanced paper and digital services that build greater revenues and relevance.
Join the Ricoh Workflow Automation team to talk about Web2Print Implementations as well as how Cross Media is being used within in-plants during our IPMA Webinar on “Workflow Automation and Integrating today’s Cross Media” on 9/25 at 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm CDT.
During our time together we will be discussing what to expect during a Web2Print implementation and what we should be doing post implementation. This valuable session will also walk through how in-plants are using cross media to gain and share information with their internal and external customers. You’ll be exposed to real life examples that highlight what other leading in-plants are doing to succeed.
