When you are first considering web to print software and printer ecommerce, you will of course ask the very valid questions “What are the benefits to me?” and “What are benefits to my customer?”
Web2print is an ideal way to reduce your administrative burden whilst increasing your revenue from online sales giving you better overall profitability.
Do You Have An Online Presence?
Those printers that have never used a web2print (w2p) store and have no online offer, are missing out on a huge online market.
Ecommerce overall grew approximately 30% over the past year.
From this we can gather 2 things; the first, that online is an important part of your route to market; and the second, that a percentage of ‘offline’ customers must have shifted to purchasing online.
Do You Have An Online Presence But It Was Built A Decade (Or More!) Ago?
If you have a website that was built a long time ago or that doesn’t have ecommerce functionality, you will miss out on orders to your competitors that are utilising web to print software to have a more user friendly, functional site.
If a customer is unable to place an online order, or your site is slow or unresponsive they may well go somewhere else.
What Does This Mean For You?
Without a working, functional, user friendly online store you are not only missing out on potential new customers, but without a good online printer ecommerce offer, you may well lose valued clients to a competitor.
How Do I Reduce My Administrative Burden?
Web to print software is perfect for increasing revenue and reducing the resources needed for high volume, low interest, administrative tasks.
Using w2p to automate workflow, can reduce your initial customer service enquiries massively, meaning that you no longer have to use staffing resource to deal with low level tasks. This allows employees to complete more skilled work and to concentrate on larger, more complex orders.
With integrations, such as trade printer integrations, web to print software can also minimise the need for double keying orders through to your chosen supplier. This eliminates a mundane task and increases accuracy as orders come straight from the customer, through the website, and can be sent directly to the trade printer.
Flex4s OPS offers a vast array of integrations from those with trade printers, to courier integration, accounts and more.
