We are delighted to feature in the latest April 2011 Edition of Digital Labels and Packaging Magazine by Whitmar Publications. Editor Sean Smyth visited us some time ago, and wrote this excellent article on us which you can download.
As the UK market leaders in short run label printing we have been pretty protective over the years about what makes our operation so efficient and popular with UK SMEs of every sort imaginable, from bee keepers to fire extinguisher service engineers and torpedo manufacturers to bakers. In this article you will read more about our operation than has ever been published before, and it gives some idea of the scale and speeds we operate and manufacture at day in, day out.
We are particularly proud of Sean’s positive reaction to our custom written MIS that handles a huge amount of data from our 9000+ customers. We wrote this in house (well Rich did almost 2 years ago!) and its a superb management and operational tool for the whole team in every role that enables to operate such an efficient operation with so many new customers every month and so many complex repeating jobs. This is one of the main tools we use to stay ahead of our competition and it evolves and is recoded almost every working day as the business needs evolve.
Our increased use of Twitter is also covered, and we hope that many more customer will have the move from email newsletters to the twitter platform in the coming years – follow us @MercianLabels
We are really pleased with the article, and I hope you enjoy it and learn more about this part of our business – thanks Sean!
