Our typical retail business

* Cosmopolitan food specialist
* Single outlet
* Owner, Manager, 4 shop floor employees

Faced with stiff competition from national chains with multi million pound marketing budgets, our typical retail business is in a situation where it constantly needs to do more simply to maintain its place in the market. Year on year it is spending on advertising, sales promotion and more on point of sale has gone up, whilst the prices of many of the
products on its shelves have remained the same and
in some cases even fallen. At the same time the company
has also seen the cost of its stationery increase and as the business has grown so has the need for everyday items such as prices cards and special offer tickets.

The way things were

Despite trying both inkjet and laser printing solutions our typical retail business has only ever
been able to produce the most basic items in-house. So even essential everyday items such a price tickets, and food labels had to be produced by an outsourced supplier and then over printed in-house. With outside suppliers also being used for sales promotions, point of sale materials and advertising. Print was one of the businesses biggest overheads and had a disproportionate impact on the company's profitability.

The way things really should be

relies on outsource suppliers to produce its advertising, point
of sale or sales promotions. It now has the ability to print its
