For nearly 6,000 years, written communication has driven, defined and
recorded human achievement. Through repeated waves of technological change,
it has also continuously grown in scope, effectiveness and efficiency. By integrating
the best of print and digital, local and global, creative and practical, we are proud
to build upon that great legacy of innovation – and to carry it forward
in surprising and valuable new ways.
From the clay tablets of Mesopotamia, to the illuminated manuscripts of feudal Europe, to the global reach of the Internet, written communication has earned its place as mankind’s most important tool – the technology that makes all other technologies possible.
Because of its pivotal role, the organization, management and sharing of information has been a defining feature of human progress. Each new advance in written communication has brought with it sweeping changes, not just in ...READ MORE
At its core, the task of communicating is inherently personal, because each of us perceives the world through a unique lens of experiences, relationships and beliefs.
At Uhlig, it is a fundamental axiom that there is no such thing as an “audience,” “readership” or a “market.” For us, the only unit of account that matters is the individual – the human being whose specific needs we aspire to ...READ MORE
The sheer volume of content that is now accessible through digital media makes it easy to forget that the value of content depends on quality, not quantity. The ability to deliver text or images rapidly or at low cost is no substitute for insight, and no algorithm can replace the need for accuracy, objectivity and, above all, for judgment that can only be earned with time and experience.
Employed generically, digital technologies can actually be counterproductive, because they can bury critical ...READ MORE
In a world filled with economic trade-offs, it is common to hear the refrain that creativity and expression must be sacrificed in the name of efficiency. We strongly disagree.
At Uhlig, we do not restrict creativity for the sake of cost – just the opposite. Our solutions are designed to eliminate time-consuming tasks so that more creative energy can be devoted to those parts of work – and life – that really ...READ MORE
It is a fundamental truth that the value of information is almost always a function of time. The Powerball number that is worth millions before a drawing is just another list of numerals after the winner is announced.
That same fleeting value characterizes almost all of the information we manage, defining a constant challenge and opportunity – not merely for assembling critical information, but for delivering it at the place and moment in which it will ...READ MORE
Mastering the elements of communication is only the starting point for combining those skills into a balanced, efficient, creative whole. When that goal is accomplished, however, the results are so powerful, so effortless, and so efficient that they appear to defy the normal laws of gravity and business.
At Uhlig, that is the role of our integrated communications systems, which bring together the whole range of essential tools in a single, comprehensive solution. By sharing ...READ MORE
For all its transformative power, written communication has been subject for thousands of years to serious limitations: it has only been available to those who can afford it, or who can read, or who can see, or who understand a certain language or who, for example, have access to a newspaper, mail delivery, a computer or a mobile device.
At Uhlig, we have never accepted those barriers, either for ourselves or for the millions of people we serve each month. We believe that it is an essential part of our job to make our ...READ MORE
