Posted by Pratik Shah on November 27th, 2020
2020 has been the most unpredictable year. While many industries are dealing with downfall, a few industries, such as printing, are growing rapidly. The reason, the technology, and the latest trends in the web to print solutions that help to diversify the products, increase their volume, and expand markets.
Here’s what the printing industry is looking forward to in 2020.
And thus, in 2020, we are all set to integrate our web to print solutions with AI and IoT that would automate the entire workflow. For example, IoT would enable customers to purchase products by interacting with other products.
With AI, printers would automatically know if they run out of ink, paper, or spare parts. Based on it, they can order the supplies without any human intervention.
As these technologies are well advanced, they help to increase customization, personalization, and optimization.
3D Printing Technology
Now, even healthcare professionals would be able to send their specifications to the web to print solutions and get desired results in less time.
Variable Data Interface
Well, the latest trend of the web to print software makes it possible to receive information update requirements even after sharing the specifications.
To understand this, consider an example. Your customer has sent a printing request for customized t-shirts. After sending out the details, they realize that there’s a typo in the content, and it needs to be changed. So, instead of changing the entire print job, they can simply edit the file. Web to print software can easily update the changes.
This is all about the Variable Data Interface. With this feature, customers can easily edit their data, and software can automatically update it. Another benefit includes seamless data transfer between requesters and customers.
For customers who like to design their designs, web to print solutions would provide customization services through templates, QR codes, etc.
Personalization will also enhance the printing services like design, layouts, 3D printing, and more.
This is why web to print software must have an integrated in-house shipping or fulfillment partner.
When the order gets ready to ship, the system can update the 3rd party shipping partner to export the products. Customers can even track the location of their shipment in real-time.
Voice Command Feature
Soon, customers would be able to print out their materials with voice. It would be a fantastic trend to look forward to.
Many companies have already moved their physical stores to e-stores for a wider audience and an increase in sales.
All you need to do is go with the flow. This advancement in the digital space is sure to open up new business avenues in the coming years.
The Future is Here!
However, it would be hard to tell the impact of these trends on the industry in the coming years or around the corner.
For now, all we can do is leverage these technological trends to its fullest.
