New barcoded workflow process allows seamless workflow automation from order entry to finishing
Datatech SmartSoft Inc. (www.smartsoftusa.com), the provider of the end-to-end print workflow automation software PressWise, today announced a partnership with Duplo (www.duplousa.com), a market-leading provider of on-demand finishing equipment, that will give PressWise customers the ability to seamlessly move to Duplo finishing machines as part of an automated workflow.
PressWise provides an all-in-one workflow solution designed to help Print Service Providers (PSPs) capture more business, lower their service costs and increase their production efficiency, all within a single print workflow software system. PressWise modules include Web-to-Print Storefronts, Print Estimating, Order Management, Workflow Automation, Shipping and Fulfillment, and Mailing Software.
PressWise is also designed to simplify the integration of third party applications - such as web storefronts, back-end accounting systems or print MIS - to create a single, universal workflow. Now, using a new barcoded process that takes advantage of the CCD scanner on the Duplo DC-645 and DC-745 digital color finishing machines, integration capabilities have been extended to Duplo finishing solutions too.
“PressWise allows our customers to reduce the number of touchpoints required to run each job, leading to a more efficient use of resources, increased throughput and greater profitability,” said Eric Wold, VP of SmartSoft. “Working together with Duplo, who are well known for the quality of their finishing solutions, finishing operations can now be automatically triggered trough the use of barcoded program information. This negates the need for manual job set up for each order, saving valuable time and labor resources in the process.”
PressWise was designed as an alternative to purchasing independent modules (or custom development) of Web-to-Print, Print Production Workflow Management, Print-Specific MIS, and Mail Preparation Software. Now a single end-to-end system is available with the comprehensive tools needed to streamline print workflow. PressWise includes unlimited Web-to-Print Storefronts, Print Estimating, Order Management, Workflow Automation, Shipping and Fulfillment and optional Mail Processing.
PressWise also provides simple integration tools for third-party applications, including back-end accounting, print MIS and most third-party web storefronts.
Implementation is fast and easy. The system is accessed through a browser and can be used in just a few hours of setup and online training. PressWise is available cloud-hosted or self-hosted, on a SaaS business model with no long-term contracts. For more information, visit www.presswise.com.
