2013 Managing Print Inventory in the Digital Age: Solutions and Business Models
Panelists from the 2012 workshop on inventory management reunite to discuss how presses should be thinking about inventory in a "just in time" world. Inventory is no longer the purview of a single department, and how inventory is managed significantly affects not only cash flow but sales, editorial decisions, printing methods, and reprint procedures. Panelists will examine inventory models from a variety of perspectives and share challenges and success stories from their own presses.
