AI (artificial intelligence) was supposed to be the end of many professional services, and the demise of the print industry was seemingly a certainty as we all moved to paperless offices and e-commerce: the reality is that quality print and design is as much in demand as it ever was.
Wilson Browne Solicitors has a proven track record in the design and print sector, which (like legal services) has seen a massive transformation in recent years in: how business is done; how the finished product is arrived at, and what that finished product actually is.
The firm is proud to represent significant clients in the design and print industry, and one leading the way with particularly innovative solutions is Sterling, based in Kettering. Using the Google tagline, 'We do more than just print', over 25 years Sterling has evolved to become a definitive one-stop-shop for design & creative, intelligent print, digital solutions, personalisation, point of sale and display, mailing, distribution, storage and fulfilment. How many creative agencies can offer all this, plus state-of-the-art litho and digital printing in-house?
With a rich history in print and both upstream procurement and downstream fulfilment for end users, Sterling could have been forgiven for resting on their laurels. Instead, they have embraced the digital age, enhancing their offering and reducing reliance on stand-alone print. An example of this is the Odyssey Suite of software solutions aimed at maximising efficiency and creativity for marketing teams.
Steven Pizzey, Sterling's Managing Director, said: "Our clients range from SMEs to FTSE100 companies, nationally. Most are looking for a single source to provide an end-to-end solution for their marketing collateral requirements. They want one supplier that they can trust to do the whole job, saving time and money, while producing outstanding results.
"Despite the recent political and business climate, we have maintained our enviable position as a dynamic leader within the industry. A huge part of that is the creative and flexible approach we take to exceed our clients' expectations by challenging convention.
"We go into 2018 in a strong position, with significant new business across all areas of our offering. With uncertainty or threat comes opportunity, and I'm confident that Sterling has the agility and the expertise to respond to whatever 2018 brings. We've got an exciting year ahead."
Kevin Rogers, Client Partner at Wilson Browne said: "It has been a pleasure to work closely in partnership with Sterling over the years. We're great believers in getting out from behind the desk and being on site with businesses - we can often be found on- site with Sterling, as with other clients. Whatever the area of commercial law I remain confident that our expert teams will always deliver on our promises. We have nationally recognised experience with strong support teams that use the latest, bespoke, technology. We are excited about continuing to work Sterling in 2018 - maintaining their trust, loyalty and support."
Steven added: "Just as our clients rely on us, we rely on Kevin, Tom and the team at Wilson Browne to get things done for us to the highest standards, often to very tight deadlines. I value the honest, down-to-earth advice that they give, and the fact that they will always recommend the optimum solution, rather than simply listing options. They have taken the time to understand our business, and are always commercially focused. We see them as trusted partners, and look forward to that continuing to work together for many years to come."
