Xerox Event Focuses on In-plantsMarch 15, 2013
Xerox recently hosted a Focus Forward event in Dallas, Texas, and invited in-plant managers and industry experts to explore ways to transform in-house print shops into high-powered marketing machines that bridge the paper and digital worlds. A Xerox blog about the event details what two in-plant managers said in their presentations:
- Ed Spears, manager of business support services at the Fort Worth Independent School District, said he forged tighter ties with communications and branding colleagues to combat outdated perceptions and remain competitive. He and his team uncovered internal redundancies, saving $200K by better utilizing existing assets and eliminating a dedicated machine previously used only for printing report cards. Savings are being reinvested in other strategic priorities.
- Sherri Broderick, supervisor of Print/Mail/Sign Services at the Frisco Independent School District, along with her group, made a list of all the ways they could increase the efficiency and relevance of their operation. They found 40 hours of time savings while increasing daily jobs from 50 to more than 300.
