What Didn't Work for Three In-Plant Managers

Motivate Vendors to Engage in Your Productivity & Assist with Aging Equipment
Three in-plant print center leaders offer their stories of what did not work in their print centers, and their hindsight for avoiding the issues they experienced. Listen to learn how:

  • Tim Smith, State of Wisconsin P&D, had hand piece packet fulfillment work that the operation was not able to execute well
  • Ron Balderson, Navy Federal Credit Union, underestimated collating and saddle stitching volume and his shop could not handle the volume
  • Staci Hill, Freese and Nichols, purchased a UV coater that was too small, but has a tip to help others

Watch as these in-house managers discuss what "didn't work" and their thoughts about it.
