Place in the Workflow

Diagram highlighting the place of prep in the workflow
The dealerís job is to monitor the workflow for the preppers and composers. This process allows the rest of the department to avoid the distraction of finding work throughout the day.

The Dealer counts what comes into the Graphics department from Post Sales and Closing and filters it into piles for equitable distribution to associates for Prep and Compose tasks.
