What is a production manager/what does a production manager do?
The Ergo Print Management Centre (PMC) will be responsible for procurement and process management for all print and related activities from brief to delivery. This initiative is designed to deliver a single streamlined process which will increase efficiency, improve production standards and reduce total costs. Digital print and other on-demand requests will continue to be enabled through the Printerface technology in place today. Ergo will provide management and oversight of both requirements noted above.

Ergo will have an established panel of suppliers that have a proven history of delivering quality production at a competitive price within the lead times requested. Upon receiving a job request the production manager will assess the job requirements (be it quick turnaround, superior quality print, reduced costs etc) and will then contact the suppliers on the panel that are most capable of producing the job required.

Why was an independent print manager the solution?
Macquarie is joining the majority of government departments, educational institutions and multi-national companies who use an independent marketing production management solution to leverage their spend. It is a widely used and accepted model for obtaining greater efficiency and cost savings and for achieving better control of an organisations brand.

Who do I contact if I have further questions?
Contact Martin Kennedy, Print Production Manager – Ergo on ext 6305 or email: or alternatively Fiona Rooney, Manager Marketing Services: who will be happy to help with your query.
