More deadlines, more short runs, more custom jobs: today more than ever, automation is crucial for printers to stay afloat. Still, many printers aren’t convinced of the benefits automation would bring to their business, even though they automate more in their daily lives than they think. Are you, too, a non-believer? Then let the facts convince you otherwise!

Remarkably though, and fortunately for the print industry, the millennial generation also has a thing for print. Not because it’s hip to be old-school but because they often feel that print makes it easier to absorb information. Add to that the fact that millennials will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2030, and printers have no choice but to start making their business millennial-friendly.

Commercial printers in particular are challenged by an increasing demand for short runs and custom jobs – and simply investing in extra hardware just doesn’t cut it anymore. Unless workflows are optimized, the following bottlenecks will occur and lead any printing business to chaos.
Picture this: You’re reading an article on automation because you’re genuinely interested and respect the people involved. Suddenly you’re giggling like a child because they mention your product. Not only that, they mention it in the best way possible: “Switch is the Swiss Army knife of applications”.
