Print and media were long the backbone of growth for key segments of the paper industry. With the increasing importance of new media, traditional media is on the decline. The competition among publishers to retain readers has led to increasing pressure on the printers, which in turn has led to fierce competition. While digital print and online print shops are providing speed, flexibility and customization, digital print in most cases is not cost competitive for mass production yet.
StepChange is working with printers to transform business models, improve performance and reduce supply chain costs through a closer integration with suppliers as well as to convert assets.
