How Web2Print Has Helped Grow Prism’s Printing Services
Prism offer a complete range of office supplies, interiors and printing services. They help organisations to simplify their supply chain, find efficiencies in their purchasing processes and make significant cost savings.
They work with organisations large and small ranging from local businesses through to huge corporates and NHS trusts. Prism has a long and proud history and has been based in Bristol and the surrounding area for over 150 years. The company has seen substantial growth and now have offices throughout the south of England, located in Bristol, Melksham and Ilminster. Investment has been a significant contributor to Prism’s success and growth over the last few years, and in particular, the continued commitment to growing their printing services has been considerable.
Recent investments in printing equipment include a new state-of-the-art, five colour Heidelberg Speedmaster XL75 and a Xerox iGen. Prism’s new print production facility in Bristol provides some of the most advanced and scalable printing services available in the region.
Opportunities Within the Office Solutions Market
The office solutions market has experienced a time of change within the UK. Many organisations have chosen to consolidate the number of suppliers they have to deal with in order to reduce their administration costs. Also, they have found that by using a single supplier for all of their office needs, they can drive even further savings.
Prism was already a leader in the office supplies and interiors market and was one of the first businesses to also offer printing services, therefore providing a complete office and print solution. Their vision and early adoption has resulted in Prism becoming a key player, and they are now working with some of the UK’s leading companies.
A Web2Print Solution
Prism purchased the Coreprint Pro Web2Print software more than ten years ago and was one of the first companies to do so within the office solutions market. Since then, Web2Print software has helped them to streamline their printing process and reduce their print administration costs. Vpress have continued to support Prism over the last ten years by not only helping to provide training and on-boarding for staff and customers.
The team at Vpress have taken that support a step further and worked alongside the Prism team during major new business pitches where specialist on-site consultancy was required to address the needs of the prospect. It is important to Vpress to not only sell a proven Web2Print software solution but to work alongside customers like Prism and show how the Vpress model can help benefit their business in other ways.
Integration Builds Growth
Integration has been another part of Prism’s success – having purchased the Vpress’ API module they can provide a storefront that drives work straight from their office supplies catalogue or any client ERP/ CRM platform, directly into their MIS. An attractive interface, along with smooth functionality reassures customers that they are working with an efficient and quality printing services company. With Prism’s investment in print equipment, expertise and Web2Print software, they have strengthened their range of printing services and are continuing to grow. Vpress look forward to many more years of working hand in hand with Prism in a collaborative effort for the benefit of both parties.
