When flying coast-to-coast, autopilot is a good thing. But, when it comes to running your business, autopilot is no substitute for current data from which to make strategic business decisions. Print Service Providers (PSPs) can take advantage of the valuable opportunity to participate in the North American Print Investment survey from Keypoint Intelligence—InfoTrends and the Association for Print Technologies (APTech℠), formerly NPES, to gain new information and perspective.
Who is taking control of their workflow and who is not, and why not? How do the strategic directions declared by PSPs match their actual levels of software and IT spend? Last year we learned that North American printers were behind their European counterparts. What will we find this year? Survey respondents will get the answers to these important questions—and many more findings—when key insights from the research are published in May.
“When business intelligence, IoT, analytics, machine learning and other rapidly advancing technologies converge with manufacturing processes to streamline production and optimize every stage of production, OEMs and their print service provider partners stand to benefit and be competitive and profitable,” stated Thayer Long, APTech President. “APTech’s partnering with Keypoint Intelligence on this research will provide actionable findings for all stakeholders to improve operating results,” he continued.
According to Pat McGrew, Director for the Production Workflow Advisory Services at Keypoint Intelligence—InfoTrends, “APTech members are the key stakeholders for the findings of this survey. They help us take the pulse of the North American market. That data helps us identify gaps in available solutions, trends in software purchases, and to compare the North American Printer to their European counterpart. We are excited to be partnering with APTech.
Industry stakeholders are also invited to learn results from the research in an informative complimentary webinar presented by Pat McGrew and Ryan McAbee of the Production Workflow team at Keypoint Intelligence—InfoTrends, co-hosted with APTech on May 22; registration details coming soon.
