Printing & Media
Planned. Tracked. Automated. Analysed. Optimised. Understood.

LYNQ is reinventing manufacturing execution system (MES) software for printers and print media manufacturers running job shop, batch production or production lines.

The UK’s print industry is worth around £9 billion and employs 80,000 people.

Despite obvious growth in the popularity of online media, printing is still a huge industry in the UK. Almost 10,000 companies employ more than 80,000 people to generate around £9 billion every year, putting it on par with the country’s textiles sector.

It’s not as easy as it used to be to achieve success in this area, however. Companies are faced with a number of unique pressures and challenges that, when combined, can make it difficult to operate efficiently.

Digital replacements

The advent and rapid rise of the internet as a convenient alternative to printed books, magazines and other literature has hit the industry hard. Comparatively, printed words are slower to produce and more costly to distribute.

Intense competition

Being in gradual decline, the print media market has become saturated. Competition is intensifying and only the strongest, most productive players will excel. Those who don’t focus on efficiency risk failure.

Fluctuating demand

Product demand in the print sector is tied more closely to the wider economy than in other industries. Companies must be ready to adapt to a constantly changing market.

Environmental concerns

The pressure on print companies to operate sustainably and keep environmental impacts minimal is growing. Production must be in line with government and consumer expectations.

Achieving delivery, quality and financial goals relies on the effectiveness of your resources. Getting the most from your employees and machines goes beyond scheduling. It requires intelligent insight and complete visibility of where time is being lost, using technology that can automate data collection and optimise workflow, to seamlessly connect planning and production activities.

LYNQ is built to complement the best-of-breed ERP systems your company already relies on, and can improve operations in a number of ways.

  • Optimise production plans by harnessing the powers of automatic and drag-drop scheduling, making it possible to shorten lead times and deliver to customers quickly and cost-efficiently.
  • Keep a closer eye on product quality with real-time measurements delivered directly from the factory floor.
  • Highlight performance trends with access to comprehensive data on machine and employee activity.

The print industry is already enjoying the benefits from using LYNQ to boost productivity and maximise their revenue.
