Leading Southern California Printing Firm Saves Time and Money by Visually Documenting and Sharing Processes Company-Wide

VPM has benefited L+L through helping us to better understand roadblocks and inefficiencies in our processes

Today, SmartDraw Software announced the successful implementation of their new Visual Process Management solution by one of Southern California’s largest printing companies, L+L Printers.

Visual Process Management (VPM) leverages SmartDraw VP, the world's first visual processorTM to quickly, systematically and collaboratively create a VPM Collection, which is stored on a network server. The VPM Collection is a complete electronic model of an organization, linking every process with the position that is responsible for executing it and managing it.

By storing all the processes live on a server as a collection of interlinked visuals that anyone can browse like a website, VPM totally revolutionizes the way processes are documented and managed. VPM delivers real, bottom line benefits to companies of all kinds, starting with L+L Printers.
Since implementing VPM throughout the organization, L+L has:

  •     Increased efficiency and throughput by 25%
  •     Reduced training time by 15%
  •     Created the opportunity to secure $1M+ contract, plus retained largest account as a direct result of demonstrating compliance and best practice procedures visually through VPM

“VPM has benefited L+L through helping us to better understand roadblocks and inefficiencies in our processes,” said Bob Dixon L + L Printers’ Digital Division President.

Paul Stannard, CEO of SmartDraw Software said, “We have created a completely new, visual way to document and manage your business processes that uses the revolutionary visual processor technology provided only by SmartDraw VP. Because VPM is so easy to implement and is used by employees every day, it has the power to lower costs and improve the efficiency of virtually every person in every business worldwide.”

“We’ve seen measurable ROI from using the SmartDraw processes especially in how it relates to new clients’ requests for information on us,” said Bill Anderson, CEO of L+L Printers. “It’s enabled us to land some big accounts.”
