OnTrak Software Publishes White Paper Examining Alcohol Beverage Distributors’ Print Shop Operations

Cincinnati, Ohio — November 10, 2010 — OnTrak Software, the only provider of Web-based software to help alcohol beverage distributors manage, control and measure their 'at-retail’ marketing campaigns and materials, today published a white paper titled “It’s No Longer Just a Question of Outsourcing vs. In-Sourcing Your Print Shop: A Look into Alcohol Beverage Distributors’ Options.”

The criteria for an unbiased examination of whether a distributor should run their own print shop or outsource their printing operations to a third party are often lacking. Additionally, the ability of the distributor to monitor the success of either decision, and have available real-time information for making better Marketing at-Retail business decisions is seldom present.

Written by Denis Clark, Executive Vice President at OnTrak Software, the white paper examines both the advantages and disadvantages of outsourcing or in-sourcing a distributor’s print shop. The white paper also introduces new tools that dramatically increase business efficiency while also providing valuable information for the management, control and measurement of Marketing at-Retail initiatives.

“With billions of dollars being spent on promotional printing in the alcohol beverage industry, it only makes sense to take a moment and assess your printing process as well as its effectiveness,” Clark said. “This white paper not only introduces OnTrak’s money-saving solutions — it provides a foundational check list of issues that all distributors should consider when addressing the printing arm of their business. We believe this can serve as a helpful tool for any alcohol beverage distributor.”
