Are you an in-house print operation that is battling outsourcing threats, or a commercial printer competing with low-cost online retailers? It doesn’t matter which struggle you’re facing—either way, your motivation to increase productivity is justified. One of the key strategies for reducing manufacturing costs and remaining competitive is achieving increased uptime, but how can you know which print processes are impeding your productivity and how to correct them? The answer is to monitor and identify the root causes of inhibited productivity! Unfortunately, very few tools are available to help you analyze and provide insight into the causes of downtime.
This webinar will highlight the SpencerMetrics tool, a real-time cloud-based system that monitors productivity so that you can maximize your uptime, reduce cost, and generate more sellable output. Howie Fenton, InfoTrends’ Associate Director of Operations Consulting, along with actual SpencerMetrics users will provide insight on how you can monitor and improve productivity within your print operation.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- The importance of monitoring utilization rates
- How to identify the root causes of poor utilization
