Gelato opens up its platform to enable businesses to connect to its global print-on-demand network
The world’s second most polluting industry. 28% of all greenhouse gas emission in US originates from the Transportation sector, only beaten by Energy sector.
When companies shift to local printing, shipping distances can be reduced up to 90%. Hydro Extruded Solutions, a world leading aluminum producer, reduced shipping distances by 72% for their quarterly On-The-Wall Posters that were sent to 130 offices around the world.
By enabling sales people or dealers / resellers to order printed material on-demand, print volumes can be reduced significantly.
Reduce excess printing (overprint).
As our customers can print on-demand, they experience drastic cuts in excess printing. No more need to throw away thousands of brochures or catalogues.
Remove the need for storage.
By moving from stock to on-demand printing, our customers experience they can do without expensive storage facilities.
Admin time is 60% of total cost of printing
With smaller print runs of less than a 1000 units, admin time accounts for the majority of the total cost of printing (according to InfoTrends).
By digitizing work processes associated with printing, you can streamline the work flow and make great time cuts. One example is using editable templates instead of asking designers or agencies for help whenever content needs to be updated.
Gelato gives you full cost control through the real-time reporting functionality. Filter reports by countries, customers, billing addresses and more. Furthermore, you can easily download reports to Excel and share with your colleagues or use for budgeting.
