Selling More Print Equipment in a Down Market

The challenge that every business has during a down market is to prove their worth in a way that allows clients to see the value in what they have to offer.

Standardisation in The Workplace

In 1908, Henry Ford built the first Model T which sold for $825. By 1913, he introduced the moving assembly line which provided for a significant increase in efficiency and a decrease in the cost of production. By 1916, the cost of the Model T reduced to $360.
