  THE POWER OF PRINT-ON-DEMAND  
     
 

"Recent advances in digital document-processing technologies are enabling companies to move from the traditional model of print-and-distribute—based on offset presses and shipping documents—to the model of distribute-and-print—based on communicating electronic documents around the world for availability in digital document production sites." —Xerox Corp.

Digital print-on-demand methods are changing:

• document creation from manual cut-and- paste to online electronic assembly.

• physical storage of obsolete documents to electronic libraries of always up-to-date information.

• printing large quantities on offset presses to printing only the quantity needed on digital presses and document production systems.

Print-on-demand's promised benefits are:

• no more obsolete documents
• no more warehousing
• no need for overruns
• less production expense
• less time-to-market
