Managing a myriad of design and artwork projects with demanding timelines, different team members, and many SKUs and components can make your head spin. For years, you have known you need a system and not merely spreadsheets, email, and electronic folders; or worse yet, you have a generic project management system that just doesn’t get your world. We recognize that project briefs, SKU and component info, dielines, artwork approval routing and printer interaction are all keys to successful projects.
The Impact of Your Challenges
- Project Delays
- Extra Artwork Revisions
- RUSH requests
- Missed Deadlines
- Teaming Breakdown
- eCommerce Information Problems
Trying to manage a long list of projects with numerous moving parts without a proper solution in place is time consuming and frustrating. There are too many emails, side discussions, and “Oops! Missed that one" moments which lead to RUSH projects, or worse yet missed deadlines. Accountability is difficult, capacity planning is impossible, and there is no way to generate reports for status and results reviews.
How We Can Help
The Total Workflow Solution is a cloud-based solution that delivers an automated workflow for the entire lifecycle of your artwork project – from concept or creative brief to printer release. Each member knows exactly what needs to get done on each project and by when! With the solution tracking projects and key information along the way, reporting becomes easy; understanding the number of SKUs and Components touched, projects completed on-time, RUSH projects, number of artwork rounds… all become a matter of running a report.
