For some years now, it has become apparent that printing companies that are interested in digital
transformation, have better chances to develop future-oriented and sustainable solutions even in times of crisis
to remain competitive.
Using digital technologies
The change from a classic printing company to a digitally networked enterprise does not pose a challenge to the
few companies face major challenges. Digital technologies are developing at a rapid pace
Speed continues to increase, the use of smartphones, tablets and laptops continues to grow
importance and also in the area of the tools used and the machinery is the
Digitalisation cannot be stopped. In order to network all this in a contemporary way, the exchange with
employees, partners and customers to be future-proof, in many cases it requires a
new or at least updated digital infrastructure.
Understanding digital transformation as a process
Digital transformation is not, as every entrepreneur should be aware, a task with a fixed start and end date, as is familiar from other projects, but rather a permanent process of change that must be carefully planned and then continuously optimized and implemented. This is a complex cycle that is characterized by the consistent search for possibilities for optimization, future-oriented planning and implementation of new approaches to solutions. Results must be constantly analysed, any errors that occur must be corrected and processes must be adapted. These measures affect both internal processes and all processes that take place for or with our own customers. A holistic view of the transformation process is therefore necessary.
Entry into the digital transformation
The large number of printing companies that have already successfully started the process of digital transformation were forced to develop the appropriate concepts and solutions for their own company in a time-consuming and costly process. This is a difficult path that also bundles many of the usually limited resources, whether in terms of the budget required or simply in terms of the work performance of the required employees. But there is another way.
For printing companies in particular, there are many areas in which it is possible to initiate the necessary changes with considerably less effort and in a shorter time by using established digital solutions. A dedicated e-business print platform can serve as the technological basis for the transformation. Our printformer.io app
enables businesses to easily create a professional and fully functional print shop in a few minutes by combining the popular Shopify e-commerce platform with our special version of printformer
. Complex research, long development times and high costs are thus avoided and the printing company can consolidate its own profitability and generate higher sales figures during the entire digitalization process.

The advantages of the printformer.io app are obvious. The company benefits from low investment costs for the implementation of the digital print shop and the cloud-based application ensures that all the latest updates and bug fixes are available at all times without having to provide own resources for web development and service. Thus, a system is available at any time that is "state of the art" and does not tie up additional resources.
The size of the existing job volume is irrelevant, as the system can be easily adapted to the current number of print jobs and is therefore flexibly scalable.
