Operating your own print room is an expensive business. When you line up the invoices for printer hire, maintenance, consumables and franking, you can’t help but think there must be a better way of doing things. And there is of course: outsourcing. But that would mean handing over control to an external agency which might not uphold the same standards as you currently do.
However, there are too many reasons not to try and find an outsource partner who cares as much about your print and mailing output as you do. As well as the reduced operating costs, there are plenty of other benefits to be found from outsourcing your print including increased print capacity and improved responsiveness.
You’re right to have your guard up and take your time to find a print partner that’s on the same page as you. To help you make the right decision, we’ve come up with 12 actions you’ll need to take – or delegate – to ensure outsourcing delivers the desired outcomes.
