Yearbook printing technology is not only reducing turnaround times and creating more visually appealing products, but many yearbook publishing companies can use new technologies to save on costs for both the company and the client.
According to the production manager at Entourage Yearbooks, Edward Jo, “A door to door yearbook salesman model is inefficient. Internet online conferencing and remote desktop makes this position unnecessary. With a traveling yearbook rep, the school would have to call or email them for help, and then wait for them to drive out to the school. With the Entourage method, no matter where you are located, we can begin tech support help instantly as long as you have an internet connection.”
The Entourage Yearbooks business model is the preferred model since an estimated 20-30% of costs will be allocated to pay for the door to door sales rep. The Entourage model reduces costs with virtual technologies that allow for instant access within minutes. These savings are then passed down to the customer, making for more competitive pricing.
Entourage Yearbooks is doing what many businesses in America are doing today, using the Internet to streamline systems to be more productive. Jo added, “A yearbook sales rep who has a large territory may take several days before he or she can make a trip to a school that is requesting help. Time and money is wasted in these few days. We can help within minutes and keep production rolling for the fastest turnaround times in the industry.”
Entourage Yearbooks has also recently announced that they have made the leap to an entirely digital printing format. Digital print technology offers some of the highest quality imagery and resolution available in the industry today and the fastest turnaround times. With digital printing, customers can expect turnaround times to be as short as 2-3 weeks. Digital printing is also perfect for short runs, so schools aren’t forced to order additional books just to get a more competitive price.
