Each owner faces the challenge of updating their print equipment. Copiers, laminators, cutters, wide format, these are all significant cost investments. Once a purchase is made it also represents a significant time commitment. Making the best decision possible is critical to make sure the equipment that is added is a good fit not only for the stores current print level but where the store will be into the future. So the decision process of choosing the right print equipment is not one that can be taken lightly.
When confronted with this scenario owners often read about the different equipment options. They may also talk with company representatives that may have other interests in mind when considering equipment options. Owners often reach out to peers to garner additional input to help make their decision. The area office and representatives, the internet, consumer reviews are all options for garnering information used to make the equipment choice.
Up to now this was a typical process to make a final decision for new print equipment. This however does not offer an evaluation of the various equipment options in the real world of The UPS Store. How the equipment is used, the customer interaction, print production, interstore, situations that are all somewhat unique to The UPS Store print world. Now for the first time before a purchase or a lease a member of The Association can get reviews on equipment by those that actually use the equipment in The UPS Store, YOU the store owner. The benefit of The Association members across the country can now be harnessed as part of this process. As a new benefit to members of The Association a review section has been added to the Printing Plus Program Print Cloud – Equipment Reviews.
You now have the ability to rate the equipment you use in your store every day, one to five stars. You also have the ability to add comments about the equipment that may help provide other members, considering the purchase of the equipment, better information to make a more informed decision.
