With web-to-print, instead of walking across campus or composing an email to explain the job, professors can simply take out their laptop, cell phone or other mobile device, click on the app, and tap on fields that specify all the information required to take the job from receipt to delivery. Not only that, but visual cues such as "staple or tabs go here," "the book opens this way" — ensure that everyone is speaking the same language.
Another advantage: By archiving jobs in a secure, digital repository, web-to-print takes the panic out of rush requests for reprints and revisions. The professor accesses the files and can then update them electronically. From there, the web-to-print solution prepares the job, translates the end-user’s intent into instructions, engages necessary workflows such as preflight, budget approval, copyright clearance, etc., and ultimately moves the job through the process smoothly and efficiently.
Speed, convenience, accuracy and security are sure to impress any professor — and customer approval matters to the life of any in-plant.
