No interruption. No third-party. No job left behind. 

Whether you're acquiring a Production Print Solution or evaluating your current one, realizing peak efficiency, reliability, and profitability is a must. Here's 5 questions you'll want to consider.

There's "NO ROOM" for inefficiencies in today's print room.

Minimizing "INTERRUPTIONS" is paramount in the print room. That requires moving with air-tight precision from job acquisition to job fulfillment, with no service downtime in between. 

"NO THIRD PARTY" means no gaps in realizing your return on production print investment. By partnering exclusively with one trusted partner, you gain true accountability, true visibility with solutions and service, and results that are truly accounted for.

We ensure "NO JOBS" are left behind. With the intent of maximizing your production run time, print specialists need strategic workflows that ensure they aren't walking away from jobs, customers or revenue.

So here are the 5 questions: 

We understand the most advanced and efficient production print solutions in the world are of little value without high-trained, hyper-responsive technical support. — Mark McKinney, Datamax Service Manager

1. Do your service techs really know what they're doing? Are they hyper-responsive?

Have you experienced extended downtime - with resolution still in waiting? It begs a few questions: Are your technicians dedicated to production print and sufficiently trained? Are they local and able to respond swiftly and resolve issues the first time? Datamax is committed to all of the above. We've invested over 18K hours and $1 million over the past 5 years in such training.

Our Canon ATSP and Konica Minolta Pro-Tech service training awards don't just sit in trophy cases. They shine through in the powerful metrics we measure and improve upon consistently: Response Time, Response + Resolution Time,  First Call Completion Rate, and more! 


2. Are you still haggling over print quality?

Your production print vendor says the color's spot-on. But obviously, it isn't. And so, the haggling continues ...

Color consistency is easily achievable with the right partner and professional tools. For example, Canon's PRISMAsync incorporates an in-RIP G7 calibration method. Without a need for third-party software or complex procedures , print professionals can quickly and easily calibrate their PRISMAsync-driven Production Color Presses to achieve a near neutral print condition.

3. Do workflows force you to walk away from jobs? ... or customers?

Walking away from potential jobs? Leaving customers in limbo? The challenges faced today by production printers — tight turnarounds, shorter, highly varied job runs, increased customer demand — can put the press room in disarray. That is, without a relevant end-to-end solution to define and direct production processes. 

Developing workflows specifically envisioned for your operations can help your production team meet the demands of customers, and a little air to breathe. 


4. Do your account reviews help keep you rolling ... or reeling?

Are account reviews even happening? If so, are they a mere formality? Partnership is not part-time. A Production Print Partnership Review entails a thorough review of service performance metrics and SLAs, ensures an opportunity to validate whether solutions are contributing to your business goals, and offers the chance to think strategically about the upcoming quarter and beyond.

It's not a periodic lunch or unannounced fly-by. It's a tactical approach to ensuring your return on technology investment.

5. Is your service provider also your lease provider?

Having a one-source technology partner pays off big for your print operation – it gives you leverage (should you need it). It gives your partner ultimate incentive for accountability.

Accountability, to us, means thoughtfully caring for your technology throughout the entire term of the lease. With Datamax, the same company that you develop and acquire your equipment from is the same one servicing it — which equates to a mutually empowered relationship built for the long-run... and for long production runs.
