Many of the book publishing business models that worked for decades no longer drive profitability, let alone growth. But publishers face huge obstacles to adopting new models and exploring new opportunities because their supply chains are not built for it.

Leading the digital print transformation, HP is reinventing publishing with HP Piazza.

HP Piazza is a set of solutions for publishers that align your supply chain with today’s challenges by making it easy to print only what you need, when you need it. This cloud-based revolutionary advance-which includes a cloud means significantly lower costs, zero inventory, and no waste.

In this webinar, HP will share how Print-to-order gets a lot simpler and more efficient with Piazza.

Join the webinar to hear how Piazza can work for you.
