Adstream Australia Managing Director Peter Miller said: “We have learned a great deal about print management from brand owners, agencies and printers who use our print and broadcast advertising services.

“Our Quickcut customers have been extremely positive and receptive to this idea. Many of the features we have incorporated have actually been suggested by our customers. As a result, we have had very good feedback on the design and user friendliness of Printpath, but in particular, the command and control of multiple projects and costs. It is working in the cloud at its best.”

Achieving quality print outcomes within budget is critically important. Corporates and agencies can use Printpath to optimise all their print projects.
