Help Us Identify Where and Why Companies Are Planning to Invest

Download the 2017 Idealliance Printing Markets – Capital Investment Report™

We’ve made the point often in Idealliance State of the Industry research: While our gamut of opportunity continues to expand, our margin for error continues to shrink. New printing technologies and new services to complement print are creating transformative opportunity to satisfy a broader range of our clients’ communications needs, faster and more efficiently. But the competition for those opportunities continues to intensify as the internet and digitization redefine who does what, how, and for whom.

To excel we must get capital investment right. We must identify the investments that best fit our company, precisely define the value those investments offer clients and prospects, execute effectively enough to create that value, and keep getting better at all three because when “competition is everywhere,” as one State of the Industry participant aptly puts it, we are either improving or falling behind.

The Idealliance Printing Markets – Capital Investment Research Program was created to help us keep improving.
