A Cambridgeshire specialist printing company has future-proofed its digital services and created new jobs with the help of Connecting Cambridgeshire.

B&H Digital can offer its customers speedy online ordering and a host of new digital services after investing in a state of the art web-based platform and cloud storage system.

The Huntingdon-based company received a £4,000 grant in 2015 through Connecting Cambridgeshire’s business support scheme, which was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Customers can now place print orders direct from their desk, update their own bespoke templates for leaflets, business cards etc, and book delivery to suit their needs.

The new system offers an inventory of supplies – from stationary to safety clothing – which can be held in stock and delivered in small quantities, when and where it is needed.  This not only saves storage, but offers real-time stock information, sending alerts when more supplies need to be ordered.

It can also be used as an effective marketing tool by helping businesses to capture useful data, update their customer databases and generate targeted online campaigns.

Simon Mitchell, Director at B&H Digital Ltd, said:

“We were delighted to receive a grant from Connecting Cambridgeshire’s business support scheme towards the cost of installing the XMPie platform, which allows us to offer a truly digital service. As a result, we have employed an extra full-time person to manage the system, and a part-time person to provide artwork and design support to our Studio.

“The new system is infinitely quicker, and much more user-friendly for our customers. The wider range of options is invaluable and it’s a better way to manage a business’s needs for printing, marketing and supplies.

“It means we can provide an enhanced service to our existing clients, and we are starting to attract new customers, who can see the benefits of having a web-based platform that brings everything together.”
