Many Mimeo customers customise documents for partners, resellers, retailers or instructors. This could be as simple as adding a channel partner logo to courseware or adding a retail location and store hours to a brochure.

The greatest barrier to customisation is the time and coordinated effort required. Document owners often have to collect information and graphics, insert what was collected into the document, gain agreement to a final proof, then print and distribute the documents. Asking partners to do the customisation introduces risk into the process since each partner may not strictly adhere to the standards established by the document owner.

That was until now. Customisation Solutions from Mimeo are rules based. You set the rules and provide your partners with the tools to add custom elements to each document. This approach makes customisation economical, maintains tight control over the process, and is far easier to implement.

Those ordering will have a greater sense of ownership since they personally contributed to the success of the document. Competitively, document owners that offer customisation to their partners and employees will have an edge over those that do not.


More Details about Customisation Solutions

Customisation technology is a form of Variable Data Printing and one of the fastest growing areas in the on-demand printing industry. Variable data refers to the ability to use digital technology to vary one or more elements in a printed piece. Content such as text, images, logos and graphics are inserted into preapproved areas of the document by authorised individuals.

During the ordering process, the person ordering is prompted to insert content into the required fields. The document owner defines a set of rules that dictate what can be inserted and where. In addition Customisation works across all Mimeo platforms. This includes the Marketplace storefront where others do the ordering, and the Mimeo online interface.

Channel Support:
Value added resellers and partners often want to brand any materials provided to their customers.

The benefit for the document owner is a greater willingness among partners to use provided materials. Typical customisation fields include: logo, contact information, date, region, promotions and products.

Using the same materials at every event is a thing of the past. With customisation, materials can contain information and offers that were changed to appeal to attendees at every show.
