Keynote: 3 + 3 = Success: Executable Transformations for the Digital Future
Pat McGrew, Managing Director, McGrewGroup, Inc.
To growing your business into new customer segments and expanding your range of applications usually requires some change. Everyone will need a keen understanding of new supply chain demands, technologies, workflow options and other changes across the business. This is transformational change. It requires vision, strategy, planning and buy-in from your staff, because everyone will be asked to adjust – from the sales team to customer service to the production floor, as well as business management teams. Here are proven paths to transformational change to apply to your business. And, while we have you, we’ll talk about how to ensure that your sales team thinks expansively and executes with confidence. From where you are today to where you want to go in the future, we will cover the three requirements for your sales team to go after new opportunities and to grow relationships with existing customers.

Take Aways:

  • Turning the vision into reality
  • The Crawl, Walk, Run approach
  • Including your staff on the journey
  • A starter kit for planning your transformational change
  • Equipping the sales team for success
  • Paths to expand print volume

Inkjet and toner solutions come in all sizes and shapes including print modules that can be combined with other technologies. Automation solutions can help you find the money leaking from your job onboarding and production management. (Have you invoiced every customer?) Tracking technology not only keeps the auditors happy but moves you toward operational excellence. And don’t forget the power you can bring to print with Augmented and Virtual Reality solutions and true closed-loop communication offerings that keep your clients engaged.

Review of Wednesday User Conference

Keynote: Developing a Workflow Mindset: Picking up Money from the Production Floor
Pat McGrew, Managing Director, McGrewGroup, Inc.
Every business and every production floor has a workflow. It’s sometimes called other things, but there are processes, documented and undocumented, that move work into the shop and through production, cause billing to happen, and manage delivery. Even today, many shops still operate with a single team member who is the source of all knowledge and use a series of spreadsheets and notice boards tracking physical job traveler envelopes. Today there are processes and tools that can add automation without breaking the bank that are worth considering, but you need to know what problems you are trying to solve and what questions to ask. This is the presentation that gives you the toolset to embark on your next, efficient, workflow process.

Take Aways:

  • Defining the workflow mindset
  • Automation via The Crawl, Walk, Run approach
  • Assessing gaps
  • A starter kit for implementing your new workflow mindset
