Case Study: Education

CHALLENGE

Over two decades, STAR built a very successful curriculum delivered via onsite client training. They were searching for a new delivery method to open up an additional revenue stream for the business. But they were unsure of where to start, and what issues or investments would stand in their way.

  • Develop strategy for capitalizing on pre-existing content
  • Maintain security of proprietary information
  • Create new revenue source

PROBLEM SOLVING

Mimeo’s Marketplace solution allowed STAR to publish a brand new product line that sales managers can use to teach and coach their sales people. Not only was it branded with the STAR logo, but STAR could mark up documents to create a revenue stream, with transactions and billing handled by Mimeo. With Mimeo’s 24/7 support, security and ease of use, it was the simplest way for STAR’s online storefront to go from zero to hero.

RESULT

  • STAR branded customer experience
  • New revenue source
  • Easy admin function for quick setup and maintenance
  • No ongoing STAR IT or billing support required

About Elite Academic Academy

Elite Academic Academy is a tuition-free charter school that provides a personalized learning experience for students who want to learn from the safety of their own homes. In this Case Study, find out how Mimeo enabled the school to deliver customized print curriculum to students and empowered it to grow with high-quality marketing materials.

The Challenge

Because EAA’s students are all remote learners, the school needed to find a reliable print partner to deliver curriculum directly to their homeschool students. On top of that, print is a major part of the school’s marketing strategy. EAA needed to find a flexible printer that would empower the school to grow.

Selecting Mimeo as Strategic Partner

Meghan Freeman, CEO of EAA, knew she needed a strategic print partner from the start to deliver quality print content to their homeschool students. She selected Mimeo because of its ease of use, cost-effectiveness, and awardwinning customer service.

Mimeo Benefits

Ease of Use

EAA needed a printer that would make it easy for all its directors to place print orders for themselves. Mimeo’s online interface makes it easy for them to upload files, build documents with virtual proofing, and save those documents in their library so they can easily be reordered.

Cost Effectiveness

As a school, EAA needs to optimize every budget so they can provide their students with the best learning possible. Mimeo consistently beat out other printers in price, even when EAA needed lastminute print and delivery.

Customer Service

Since printing is core to both their homeschool track and their marketing efforts, EAA needed to find a printer who would be a partner in solving problems. While Mimeo is easy to use, EAA also has access to a Mimeo rep and 24/7 customer service in case they have any questions about their orders.

Mimeo Strategic Partner

Mimeo has been a strategic partner to EAA since its inception in 2018, making sure student and marketing print materials are high-quality and delivered on time, with as little effort as possible on behalf of their admins.

“Ever since I was introduced to Mimeo, my experience has been amazing. The customer service is really good, and the team has always been quick to answer my questions. It’s been a great working relationship, and we’re very happy with Mimeo as a partner.”

– Kiley Allen, Marketing Coordinator at Elite Academic Academy

CHALLENGE

As alumni and membership outreach continued to increase, SAE needed a way to support its audience with more in depth educational and marketing materials. Due to a need for materials to arrive at many events in various locations, SAE did not have a unified way of printing documents, leaving each individual chapter responsible for the printing and distribution. The result was a cost prohibitive process with inconsistent print quality.

PROBLEM SOLVING

SAE relied on Mimeo’s intuitive platform to streamline a higher quality production and distribution of their materials. “Because of the affordability and quality that Mimeo has been able to provide, we’ve been able to deliver alumni outreach programs. SAE can now professionally print membership manuals and supplemental educational materials rather than just a binder full of low quality photocopies.”

RESULT

  • Enabled SAE to create larger, more in-depth materials at a lower cost
  • Effectively met budgetary requirements with Economy Color
  • Ensured consistency of materials across multiple chapters and locations
  • Increased direct control & quality of documentation by the national headquarters
  • Reduced cost/ logistical burden for individual chapters

BONUS – SCALEABLE SOLUTION TO EVENT PLANNING

“Mimeo has helped tremendously with our events. We have 5-6 conferences a year where we need to distribute mini textbooks to attendees. Over the past 5 years, we have grown both in the number of offered programs and the amount of material we distribute. We wouldn’t have been able to scale our efforts without Mimeo.

“Mimeo’s documents were miles above any other I have ever seen printed. The economy color is outstanding. It’s made it possible for us to print color for that volume of content, period. The quality, price, and level of service set Mimeo far above other companies.”- Matt Alaio – Creative Direct

CHALLENGE

Blackbaud became unhappy with the inconsistent and mediocre quality of their training documents consumed by their customers. Their print vendor just couldn’t meet their rigorous demands for flexibility and quality. Blackbaud provided customized training which made the process even more time consuming and wasteful.

“They would give us blank pages in our documents, do the tabs incorrectly, or even send materials to the wrong customer. We always felt like they just weren’t listening and they were making us look unprofessional.”

  • Time consuming and wasteful process
  • Inability to update content to meet customized needs
  • Poor customer experience & impression

PROBLEM SOLVING

Mimeo allows Blackbaud to create high-quality customized manuals for every client in a matter of minutes. All Blackbaud has to do is pull the appropriate sections for each manual to create a client specific version. “This is a huge cost savings for us, and it impresses the customer that we can deliver it the very next morning”.

RESULT

Blackbaud loves having the ability to proof their documents online in their Mimeo account, right down to the tabs and covers. “Mimeo allows us to be responsive and efficient for our customer’s sake – and our bottom line.”

  • Operations Team is able to deliver superior printed communications to customers
  • Unique documents for customers built and ordered in minutes
  • Real-time pricing tool is “like a built-in check-and-balance system for us”
