Large, multisite businesses can now guarantee that their print and marketing collateral is produced not only to consistent quality and brand levels, but also as sustainably as possible.
Helloprint’s new Enterprise API enables businesses with numerous local branches or offices, as well as franchised operations, to connect easily to the largest business-specific product portfolio, whilst ensuring that their finished materials are both printed and delivered locally, thereby reducing cost, speed of delivery and their overall carbon footprint. With Helloprint’s global presence extending across Europe, the US, Asia and Australasia, it also means that brands can ensure that quality is consistently delivered, regardless of location.
Speaking of the launch, Helloprint’s CEO Hans Scheffer commented:
“Our reputation over the last decade has been built on the extensive marketplace of customised printed products that we offer to our customers – both SMBs and individuals – via our network of over 300 local manufacturers.
“We’ve always been a known leader in printed products for businesses in this space, and the launch of the API for Enterprises means that large, global businesses can now also access those products via a single solution with the reassurance that they’ll reduce costs, speed of delivery and the inconvenience of dealing with multiple suppliers, whilst also significantly reducing their carbon footprint. Important for many businesses, use of the API will also ensure absolute consistency in the way their brand is conveyed, regardless of geography.”
Helloprint has spent the past years working with several customers to carry out extensive Beta testing of the API. Amongst these are Canva, the leading online graphic design tool, and multi-location global franchise organisations. These partners, and others, have been able to source, manage and control print communications globally in a smarter, more cost-efficient, and sustainable way. During this time, Helloprint has also significantly extended its product portfolio and local coverage so that companies can be assured of sourcing everything they need in a single solution.
Hans continues: “Whilst our technology suite has long been able to integrate with the core systems used by large organisations, including ERPs, brand portals and DAMs such as Bynder, Marvia and Ciloo, the evolution of the API means that we can now integrate with almost any system via our network of partners – the possibilities are endless.
“Without a doubt, the key benefit of what we’re offering today is that our customers are assured of the quality and reliability of our network, regardless of disrupted supply chains and closed borders. Our local network of over 300 producers in 30+ countries, connected to more than 40 delivery services, guarantees not only quality, but also delivery that significantly reduces their carbon footprint – that’s why larger brands are now choosing our services”
