Management service providers for paper, publishing and print

Perfected Solutions Ltd and Publishing Paper Solutions establish a joint venture sales and marketing organisation.

Perfected Solutions Ltd and Publishing Paper Solutions have reached agreement to establish a new joint venture business, Perfected Paper Solutions.

Perfected Paper Solutions will serve to broaden the sales and development of the well-established Perfected Solutions, Paper Management software, by utilizing the broad industry knowledge and contacts of Publishing Paper Solutions.

The Perfected Solutions software has been extensively used by UK magazine publishers and paper suppliers over 20 years. It is widely acknowledged as one of the most stable and adaptable platforms for the management and control of paper stocks, and the forecasting of paper requirements for magazines. The software is highly adaptable, and is well suited to integration to proprietary financial packages.

With paper accounting for more than 30% of any publishers' production costs, the Perfected Paper Solutions paper management software enables the purchaser to tightly control printer and supplier inventory levels, and to put in place established ordering practices.

The software provides a range of in depth and analytical financial reports, enabling any publisher to monitor current and future paper expenditure. Together with historical analysis and recharging reports, the system delivers a one-stop solution for single or multiple suppliers, and the complexity of multiple stocks, grammages and print locations. The dedicated paper management software provides publishers with their own software enabling complete freedom of supplier choice.

Perfected Solutions Ltd was formed in the early 1980's by Brian Whittaker, whose background as an accountant with PWC (formerly Coopers Lybrand) working with the printing industry, led him to develop the paper management software.

Publishing Paper Solutions was formed early in 2001 by Chris Palmer and Paul Venediger, who had both worked within the UK paper industry for many years, selling publishing and fine papers to magazine publishers, printers and end-users.

Brian Whittaker and his team will continue to develop the system and its functionality, whilst Chris Palmer and Paul Venediger will take over the responsibility for user support, training, and sales development.
