Business description: httprint provides solutions that optimize the way corporations buy printing services. Our management and staff have vast experience in the print industry, from both the buyer and supplier sides of the business. Print expertise combined with leading technology delivers the insight and innovation needed to achieve savings in the challenging category of print spend. In order to realize lasting benefits, we believe organizations must streamline workflow and evaluate supply base before Web-enabling print procurement. Rather than implementing technology in the midst of a complex and fragmented process, we help companies address and improve the entire print buying function. Then we deploy our e-procurement application to maximize efficiency and capture data on all print buying activity. This approach provides clients with a complete solution that delivers real, measurable results on an ongoing basis.
