Print Management

A global service provider headquartered in London, were looking to restructure and streamline the way in which they bought print services, making it more cost effective, efficient, leading edge and easy to manage.


The Challenge

The challenge for the print procurement was a global one, encompassing operations in the UK, the United States and Asia.

Hawtrey Dene were asked to help the client achieve a simplified and more efficient process that maintained excellent levels of service and quality and achieved real and sustainable operational expenditure savings.

The process included reviewing and retaining best practice, quality standard, intellectual collateral and resources. Minimising disruption to the business and ensuring stakeholder and team buy in was critical.

The Approach

We don’t formulate a proposed solution before understanding the challenges and the needs of the client. We undertook a comprehensive independent audit of the current process and terms in place with printers and mills to map the status quo and pull together a range of options.

Our recommendations of an outsourced print management solution was agreed and we engaged with the market to identify a partner who could deliver the simplicity, service quality and budgetary savings required.

Our team developed and honed the new processes and managed the implementation and change programme to deliver improved stakeholder satisfaction and improved compliance.

The Solution

A global print management partner with an embedded service team in London and New York to manage all paper and print buying and distribution.
