ProPrint Digital provides web-to-print storefront solutions with their Document Manager Solution for many corporate clients, enabling companies to control their brand identity while still allowing branches and dealers to order pre approved quantities of personalized marketing collateral and other products such as stationery, business cards, envelopes and business forms. The web-to-print system greatly reduces administrative costs related to purchasing of printed materials. It allows company personnel to concentrate on their company’s core competency and in addition reduces waste and costs due to storage, obsolescence and unused printed materials, which by some estimates can run as high as 40%.
