PODi, the Digital Printing Initiative, announced today that Rochester Software Associates' case studies, detailing the exceptional work done for Villanova University and Washoe County School District have been accepted for inclusion in the PODi Digital Print Case Study Database, the world's largest collection of outstanding digital print case studies. Selection for this compilation is based on a project's marketing and print innovation, and its superior results.
PODi, the Digital Printing Initiative, accepts submissions annually for its collection from print and marketing service providers from around the world. Says Rab Govil, President of Caslon, a PODi Affiliate, "It's an honor to be chosen – we look for the best the industry has to offer. We're happy to be able to share RSA's great story with our audience. It's a superb example of using digital print to drive improved marketing effectiveness."
The Villanova University case study details the challenges faced by the university print staff in their effort to streamline print production, as students, faculty and staff had to deal with an inefficient submission process that was time-consuming and error prone. The university, in need of a customizable solution to serve the varying needs of everyone at the school, implemented WebCRD from RSA to automate the process, reduce print times and increase efficiency. Since implementation, the school has seen resounding results, with increasing revenue, faster turnaround times, and satisfied customers.
The Washoe County School District faced similar challenges. This case study describes the district's efforts to leverage new production print equipment while facing a time-consuming manual method of submission and ticketing that held great potential for human error and subsequent fulfillment delays. Through an installation of WebCRD, the district was able to optimize print production and increase volume with the new equipment and centralize print in a more efficient print center. Furthermore, they were able to greatly reduce cost per job.
RSA Senior Vice President, Tim Kelly stated, "We at Rochester Software Associates are very proud that our customers' applications of WebCRD were chosen for inclusion in this prestigious collection. The spirit of innovative thinking that everyone at RSA takes in executing all of our installations allows us to maintain our position as a valuable partner to our clients like these fine institutions. The PODi award for an innovative solution and use of technology recognizes a wonderful achievement for our clients and for our entire team."
"In today's learning environment faculty staff and students have very demanding schedules and diverse printing requirements." says Bonnie Lyons, Coordinator of Villanova's Bartley and Falvey Print Centers. "Printing should be accessible online both on and off campus, secure, easy to use and reliable. RSA took our existing infrastructure and customized a solution that enabled us to offer these services to the entire community while maintaining a superior level of customer service."
Rachelle Guinan, Print Shop Supervisor for Washoe County School District said, "WebCRD has lightened our massive workloads at peak times. We also feel more organized and capable of getting our arms around an enormous situation. The staff and management of Rochester Software Associates have been great to work with and concerns are answered in a timely fashion."
