Producing and distributing documents involves many processes. Some of these have tangible, "hard" costs - including printing, shipping, and storing materials. There are also other less tangible, "soft" costs that are significant. These include processes such as composition, design, editing, and project management - most of which occur before the document is printed. Companies of all sizes need to understand all these related costs to manage their businesses effectively. An effective document printing strategy leverages technology and process efficiency to provide high quality, low cost print output. Outsourcing can be an attractive approach to producing high-quality documents efficiently. To conduct a thorough return on investment (ROI) comparison of outsourcing these processes versus doing the work internally, it is necessary to understand the total cost of document production. InfoTrends has examined these costs to determine what the key considerations to outsourcing print should be. These considerations are critical to choosing the best service provider.
