THE CHALLENGE: Receiving Large Artwork Files from Clients
Producing large-scale printing solutions is no small task for printing manufacturers, especially the process of receiving and managing multiple large image files for production. Without a reliable file exchange and management solution, valuable time can be wasted by both the company and the client by re-sending or locating lost files. Inkjet was experiencing issues receiving and managing thousands of large artwork files sent by customers.
“We’ve had a lot of trouble and confusion getting files from customers through other services, either with notifications or file transfers not completing,” explained Rowdy Bush, Director of Operations for Inkjet.
Motivated by a loss in production time and upset customers, Inkjet began to search for a file transfer solution that would provide quick and reliable file uploads from customers and streamline the production process.
BUSINESS VALUE: Increased Productivity and Customer Satisfaction
Since Thru is now Inkjet’s primary solution for file transfer, both the company and its customers are experiencing significant time savings that weren’t possible with previous services. Thru has streamlined the way Inkjet receives large files from customers resulting in the following benefits:
