An award-winning educational publisher wished to move from their conventional business model of offset printing, warehousing and fulfilling from stock. This was driven by the need to improve cash flow, reduce redundant stock and alleviate escalating storage costs, exacerbated by the growing number of titles every year.
SCD helped by implementing a print on demand model. Orders are printed and fulfilled only when required. Items are printed on demand and despatched either same day or next day to a variety of locations including schools, parents of students or students.
By implementing a Print on Demand solution the publisher has enjoyed a dramatic drop in overhead costs and improved cash flow through the business. It has allowed a back catalogue of items to become available, which previously had been commercially unviable. Re-purposing of content into new titles in other languages and different formats is now undertaken with ease.
