On average, printers manage some portion of up to 30 jobs a day.
Doesn’t sound too bad until you consider tracking every step of the job through estimating, scheduling, job costing and capacity planning, while relying on real-time data to maximize your resources, then being able to adjust for fluctuation in materials and late-stage customer changes.

Manage, the 2nd stage in the print ecosystem, is all about accuracy from estimating to data hygiene.
