Print operations showed a plan of the new normal
Printing operations were looking to create their new normal following the landscape changing impact of the global pandemic with a helping hand of a Ricoh Business Booster programme on Inkish TV.
The 15 minute webinar, on May 25 at 1pm (CET), was presented by Business Booster programme developer Mark Hinder, Manager Business Development, Commercial Printing Group. He then hosted a short Q&A session.
After a brief industry update the webinar looked at how Print Service Providers (PSPs) can use Ideation to encourage new approaches. It outlined how they can transform their current operations, investigate new opportunities and develop fresh ways of working.
The step by step guide explored how an idea is created, tested, developed and evaluated. It showed how to accurately assess which products create the most profit and can be produced cost effectively. It also discussed why it is important to confidently identify and remove problematic products.
“The Business Booster programme will help support Ricoh clients as they explore innovative ways to maintain, transform, and even grow their business, in these very challenging times,” said Erwin Busselot, Director, Business & Innovation Solutions, Commercial and Industrial Printing Group. “Seeking a new normal means different things to different operations and we have designed an approach that takes into account markets, sectors, technologies and capabilities. It allows business leaders to redefine their focus, examine new opportunities and implement fresh ideas.”
“There is no better time to value the ideas that your business is generating but make sure you are focusing on priorities that can generate cash,” stated Hinder. “The programme will show PSPs how to identify the best opportunities and nurture them in the most effective way. The tips and tricks will include the best approach to research, solid business templates, effective tools and simple methodology that will enable operations to create a clear pathway to profitable business models.”
