Truly Costing Your Print Jobs Isn't Possible
Your print jobs are nothing if they’re not profitable. No matter the quality or how satisfied your customers are, if the jobs you take and produce aren’t generating enough revenue, your business isn’t successful. Trying to get a handle on print job costing is important, but the current way jobs are estimated, planned, produced and tracked don’t allow the kind of visibility required to actually feel confident in the numbers you’re reviewing.
You need to get accurate, up to date costing data for all jobs past, present and future, but you’re stuck with:
- Unknown profit margins. With no clarity, you have no way to know what to determine what changes to make to improve efficiencies.
- An inability to assess rates. When you can’t evaluate rates or make assumptions about per machine or per cost center profitability, you can’t determine the value each brings to the operation or how you can adjust based on cost.
- No cost visibility. There is no verified, accurate way to understand where the costs lie and how those costs impact your business, so you’re relying on the best guesses of experienced staff.
- A lack of historical data. With no ability to review the particulars of a job, you run the risk of running a re-print with the same issues or inaccurately estimating a re-run job.
- Missing efficiency information. You don’t know which employees are more productive for which jobs, and you can’t schedule and plan resources based on job efficiencies and employee experience.
- Poor accounting. With no integration to estimates, a lack of information about what happened on the job floor, and manual processes that impact invoice velocity, you’re leaving cash on the table.
It’s clear that using multiple systems, manual processes, and outdated standards is not helping you ensure your print shop is as profitable as possible. To truly understand job costing, you need centralized data that you can see, interpret, and make decisions on.
