Ducharme, McMillen & Associates, Inc. (DMA) is a corporate tax consulting firm that prides itself on providing boutique services to Fortune 1000 firms. As corporate events manager, Michele Gebrayel is responsible for generating interest in DMA services by hosting educational events for prospect accounts. Professionals from prospect accounts attend complimentary educational events featuring DMA subject matter experts.
Every element of the event – from the venue to the food to the room temperature – is carefully calibrated to reflect the quality of the DMA brand.
Their print materials must not only live up to that brand but serve as an extension of the DMA brand and service.
The Old Process
At the beginning, Michele printed event books with her local printer. After submitting her final PDF via email, she was forced to dedicate 4 to 5 hours per event to travel to the print shop, review and approve proofs, and box and ship her order.
This process, which took at least 4 business days, did not leave flexibility for updates to content or to headcount and increasingly held Michele back as she scaled towards an event almost every week of the year.
The New Process
When Michele discovered Mimeo’s on demand printing, she was able to extend her print deadline. What used to take 4 days now takes minutes.
Once Michele has a final print file, she uploads it to her browser-based Mimeo account. Then she builds her document and can see what it will look like with real-time proofing — where she can customize her document in 1000+ ways, from color settings through binding options. Once she is happy with the file, she ships it directly to the venue. And because everything is cloud-based, Michele can manage her print materials in the office, on the road, or anywhere in between.
“Mimeo is An Extension of My Department”
By switching her print process to Mimeo, Michele saves time, money, and stress – and gets higher-quality materials to reflect the DMA brand. “What I see on the real-time preview is exactly what I get.”
Now that Michele Gebrayel partners with Mimeo, she can run as many events per year as necessary to meet her demand generation commitments.
