eLynxx Solutions to Provide Print Buying Software to Johns Hopkins University
eLynxx Solutions, Chambersburg, Pa., is pleased to include Johns Hopkins University among the clients using its flagship eLynxx software. eLynxx is cloud software that is built for print buyers to streamline and simplify the specification, sourcing and management of custom printed communications. eLynxx is well-suited for higher education, where insight to autonomous print buying across many areas is a desired quality.
eLynxx will be used across all colleges and administrative departments at Johns Hopkins. The software will handle marketing, student, faculty and business communications, as well as outreach, scholarly and research publications.
Print procurement at most universities, including Johns Hopkins, is spread across the institution. With upwards of 200 vendors, insight into procurement activity, spending, vendor qualification, quality assurance and efficiency is challenging. The range of materials, number of individuals involved and diversity of audiences pose additional challenges to centralized procurement and make the case for departmental print buying.
eLynxx provides a single tool that enables institutional level insight while retaining the autonomy of departmental print buying. Unlike alternative solutions, eLynxx will not replace the people, processes or vendors already in place at Johns Hopkins. Rather, eLynxx empowers those people, strengthens processes and works with the vendors they trust to ultimately achieve better results in quality, service and price.
“Higher education is one of the more complex print buying environments,” said Deborah Snider, executive vice president of eLynxx Solutions. “eLynxx software has proven its value to higher education institutions where print procurement is spread out and insight is desired. Our software allows many different users to work in their familiar capacities while capturing all of the details of each project and providing a centralized source or reporting and analytics. We are excited to be able to bring that value to Johns Hopkins University.”
eLynxx clients achieve cost savings of up to 40 percent per unit and gains in operational efficiency of more than 50 percent. More specifically, higher education clients using eLynxx have averaged per-unit cost savings of over 35 percent.
