Match print production to actual demand

Digital print has the potential to transform the publishing supply chain. Today, a growing number of book printers are pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved by embracing new digital business models, such as book lifecycle management. 

Lifecycle management is to the book publishing supply chain what sophisticated inventory management systems are to major retailers. By combining digital print with automated stock replenishment (ASR) systems, publishers can match orders and print production to actual demand for individual titles, ‘right-sizing’ inventory to match order intake, while reducing costs and waste.

Embracing book lifecycle management as a business model is a significant step forwards. Find out more in the first of three Canon Think Books Business Model Guides. This guide will appeal to book printers who want to:

  • Synchronise orders and print production with actual demand
  • Minimise sell-off risk and maximise sales
