Our Business Model
Operating from our 24/7/365 “hub” located in Swindon linked to strategically located “satellite” facilities across the UK, Cats Group’s unique business model delivers managed print, fulfilment, scanning, electronic data discovery and document processing/review services against demanding Service Level Agreements, often involving the management of staff transfers under TUPE Regulations. The balance of resources between client on-site, in-house delivery and the central hubs is a particular strength of the Cats Group model.
Each and every Cats Group client requires an individually tailored solution embodied in a specific Service Level Agreement, and a commitment to achieving the highest levels of delivery and service against those SLA's is at the heart of the Cats Group's business philosophy.
Our Scope of Services
The Group’s scanning, print management, electronic document processing and fulfillment services cover a wide range of applications including the design and production of corporate marketing material, point of sale, journals, training and maintenance manuals as well as general “on-demand” digital print requirements and offset lithographic work.
Emagination Store’s Design Studio is an online solution that allows clients to provide their customers with personalised products.
Our industry-leading product personalisation technology can be easily integrated into an existing website. Once integrated, customers can personalise products in real-time with ultra-fast previews and order via clients’ own ecommerce systems and websites. Ordered products come into our production system to be produced, packaged and delivered as per client requirements.
We provide a comprehensive integration solution which allows communication between client websites and our systems making it simple for client website developers to integrate with Design Studio.
Based in the City of London , Cats Legal delivers electronic document discovery services specifically engineered for Law Firms seeking to improve efficiency and reduce costs when preparing for complex litigation.
With access to various equipment manufacturers, Cats XD can supply office printers and copiers as well as plan printers and scanning equipment and consumables at competitive prices. All equipment comes with a range of manufacturer provided service packages to ensure that it operates reliably and effectively throughout its life. We can also arrange finance solutions to meet client needs.
