FedEx Office Optimizes Commercial Print Production with Advanced Technology
Dallas-based FedEx Office, a commercial print provider, has streamlined its professional print services using advanced productivity software.
The EFI software system directs large or complex print jobs to FedEx Office Centralized Production Centers (CPCs), increasing production efficiency by more than 15 percent. The system allows FedEx Office team members at the Network Fulfillment Center to quickly view and assess the print production volume within the network, and easily direct print jobs to more than 100 color and monochrome digital presses across the country.
“With the production workflow EFI helped to develop and implement, we are able to eliminate manual processes and send commercial jobs directly into the production queue promptly after receipt of the file,” said Aimee DiCicco, senior vice president of sales for FedEx Office. “This streamlined efficiency is critical for our commercial print customers whose printing needs constantly evolve and often require 24/7 support.“
The enhanced system allows the fulfillment center to distribute print jobs' completion to production locations closer to the customer’s point of need. FedEx Office established the system by integrating several technologies with EFI workflow software and print servers.
“The print production architecture FedEx Office has implemented is the new frontier in production management,” said Gabriel Matsliach, senior vice president and general manager, EFI Productivity Software. “It is very rare when, on a large-scale project, business processes and production processes are completely and truly integrated and automated into a single unified, smart workflow.”
The convenient network of FedEx Office retail locations, centralized production centers and around-the-clock online services help large businesses improve their productivity and maintain total control of their print supply chain. FedEx Office also is linked to the FedEx global shipping network to ensure on-time delivery of all printed materials.
