Copresco has a
reputation for fast turnaround of your digital jobs that cant be beat. We
know how important it is to deliver what you want, when and where you need it.
We also recognize that often you need the same fast turnaround on cost estimates, and frankly we havent been as diligent as we should be, says production manager Chuck Legorreta. Our solution is twofold. First, we added another production coordinator to our staff. (See April Lite.)
Then, we further integrated cost estimating into our automated work-flow system to speed up the quoting process, Chuck explained.
You will see that a quote number is now assigned to each estimate to improve the communication process. Please refer to the quote number when revising your quotes and placing your orders.
production coordinators, Lynn Buck, Jim Heck and Matt Legorreta, are
responsible for overseeing your job from start to finish.
As your direct communications link to Copresco, they make sure you receive fast, courteous service and technical support assistance. Their diverse responsibilities include:
· Cost Estimates. Copresco quotes require a lot more than a quick check of a price list. Many of your jobs deal with a complex number of variables.
Your production coordinator can often make suggestions to streamline your workflow and help you get more bang for your buck.
These recommendations range from the selection of file format, paper stock and the use of color to index tab dividers preparation, binding methods and shipping alternatives.
· Expediting. Your production coordinator is responsible for bringing all the elements of your job together, while guiding your job through the shop from the receipt of your order through final delivery.
This requires close coordination with all production departments...the review and approval of digital proofs and binding as well as final customer approvals.
Coordination of packaging and shipping to single or multiple destinations completes the production cycle.
· Follow-up. After your job is shipped, your production coordinator approves final billing and supervises any inventorying of materials for future distribution. Then, your job is archived for reprinting on-demand.
