Many companies need to produce customer communications quickly and to the highest standard. Many will use MS Word because they are familiar with it, but by using PARIS Desktop, not only can they achieve the same results, but they can significantly improve their documents.

  • Documents that need to select paper stock from more than one paper tray
  • Changing a company-wide parameter once so that all documents are correct
  • The ability to create a document in any style required
  • Preview entire document, with all variable inserted, before committing to print
  • Low response rates for marketing documents that are not personalised
  • High cost of printing, distributing, and storing marketing materials in bulk
