Vertical integration describes management styles that bring large portions of the supply chain not only under a common ownership, but also into one corporation. For example, in the 1920s, the Ford Motor Company began making much of its own steel rather than buying it from suppliers; and, in current times, Apple controls the hardware, software, operating system, and cloud services for its product and services. Vertical integration is one method of avoiding delays or quality problems. When the entire supply chain can be controlled, it is referred to as a vertical monopoly. To ensure the highest quality and best service at the lowest cost, we are distinctly different than most firms as we are striving to be vertically integrated. While we are short of vertical monopoly, it is our desire philosphically to control the design, ownership, and management of critical business functions, as discussed further below.
Many governments choose to set themselves apart by having custom designed financial statement covers. We have the ability to design, print full bleed (printing term used to indicating printing all the way to the edge of paper) oversized covers, and cut them in-house. In addition, we have designed full glossy Fortune 500-style graphic financial statements that have gone on to win national printing and media awards. Our design services also include promotional campaigns featured as billboards.
Most firms don’t have a team concept or name such as Team360 for the group supporting their operations, but rather have individual people performing administrative tasks. We believe in a team concept for our in-office team. Administrative, back-office and support staff are terms that don’t work in our organization, as our Team360 is on the front line handling key client contact from the first phone call, routing questions, and coordinating the audit, to ensuring reports are grammatically correct, and printed and shipped perfectly. It is a single coordinated effort focused solely on serving our clients.
We evaluate our printing needs for the entire year and order our supplies in bulk. We have paper delivered by the pallet, not box, to ensure it is on hand when needed, the best quality, and at the lowest price.
