The Benefits of In-House Production Printing vs. Outsourced Printing
Print solutions are now available in-house that in the past were only found at professional print facilities. Commercial printing still provides a valuable service in the business world. Extremely large runs of very high quality or specialized material are still, in most cases, better produced by a commercial print facility. But, with the wide variety of hardware and software solutions available, many, if not the majority, of enterprise print needs today can be fulfilled in house.
A recent InfoTrends study showed that printing in-house for lower run-length job orders is less expensive, and requires less net time, and can produce required material with less waste than having the same job done commercially.
In the era of data breaches, information security is a concern for many, including professional service industries such as law and finance. These organizations have begun moving towards in-house production printing.
Print What You Need, When You Need It
Most documents generated by most businesses can be produced in-house. Of course, convenience is a great advantage to having enterprise print capabilities. Cost control is another benefit of the do-it-yourself print approach.
Print solutions vary according to the individual needs of each enterprise. An assessment by a managed print solutions provider is a good way to
find out if an in-house copy center is a good solution for your enterprise.
