Florida Printer Expanding With National Jobs4 Feb, 2015
Conducting all business functions with a tailor-made program turned out to be a good fit for Intech Printing and Direct Mail of Naples. Intech was able to emerge from the recession and set the groundwork for today’s operations by developing its own integrated computer system instead of buying something off the shelf like a lot of other businesses.
“We’re not working with any out of the box solution. We developed it ourselves,” Intech owner Dave Wacker said.
The company can tweak its system as issues arise so it doesn’t have to worry about waiting for updates or buying expensive new programs to replace discontinued models.
“There’s a cost savings because we’re our own developer. It can be enhanced and changed,” Wacker said.
The in-house technology links all parts of the business from estimating a job to delivering the product.
“It’s what sets us apart,” Wacker said.
The company also used technology to expand its reach from being a printer for local clients to one with clients across the nation. The company’s BestPrintingOnline.com site opened Intech’s lineup of services to customers across the country who need materials from business cards to sophisticated annual reports or direct mailing services.
Intech is poised now for continued growth as the economy gets better, according to Wacker.
“Our business has grown the last couple of years. This past year we grew over 15 percent in revenue,” Wacker said.
While business sagged during the recession, the signs of a comeback are appearing.
“A lot of people are coming back to doing annual reports,” said sales and marketing director Sue Lampitt. Many of them are nonprofit organizations.
Intech relied heavily on the real estate industry and learned, Wacker said, to diversify as a result of the crash. Clients have been nurtured in health care, education and the nonprofit areas.
