The Mobile Future of Print Shop Management is Here
May 31, 2016. Wheaton IL. Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced the beta release of Aleyant PrintJobManager™, bringing print job management squarely into the world of mobile. Cloud-based PrintJobManager is a fast standalone application for pricing, estimating, inventory management, shop floor data collection and more. It’s easy to set up and enables owners and production managers to manage their shops from any device, including those they carry in their pocket or purse.
PrintJobManager can be used with the award-winning Aleyant Pressero™ web-to-print B2B & B2C ecommerce solution, as well as other W2P solutions. PrintJobManager is also a Zapier app, enabling fast, easy integration with a wide variety of business solutions such as QuickBooks, Zoho, Xero, SalesForce, Chargify, ShipStation, etc. for a completely customized end-to-end production and business workflow. In addition, PrintJobManager comes preloaded with libraries for equipment, materials and pricing, etc. that enables print service providers to begin using and realizing benefits from this MIS/ERP solution within a few days to a few weeks.
“Our business consists of digital, offset, large format, signage and mailing services. We wanted to make sure that this new product would cover all of our needs for print job management.,” said Greg Robbins, owner at Media Factory. “We spent a lot of time trying to find a production management solution that could effectively address all aspects of our business. When we discovered Aleyant PrintJobManager, we knew the search was finally over. We were also intrigued with their web-to-print ecommerce solutions and especially the ability to offer our customers branded customer sites. It’s the best of all worlds and is making a huge difference in our business.”
When integrated with Pressero, product pricing created in PrintJobManager can be seamlessly used within Pressero storefronts, eliminating the need to create and maintain separate pricing systems for online stores and in-shop management. In addition, the Zapier connection allows users to easily integrate a wide variety of popular business applications for a completely customized experience.
“I have been in the MIS industry for more than 30 years,” says Ted Vickers, who recently joined Aleyant as Product Manager for PrintJobManager. “So many companies have invested in print software solutions over the years and have never implemented their full capabilities. Aleyant PrintJobManager is straightforward and easy to implement, and you can quickly get so much information out of it with customized dashboards. We believe it will revolutionize the way printers think about managing their businesses.”
Cloud-based PrintJobManager is compatible with browsers on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices for easy access by remote workers. There are no fees for additional seats or locations, making the system affordable for a wide range of shops. Robins adds, “We look forward to fully switching to PrintJobManager from our current MIS solution. Being a web-based software with unlimited seats, we feel this is a great move for us. The savings in additional seats is a huge advantage. We will also be able to integrate PrintJobManager with our accounting software and our shipping software. The ability for our outside sales team to produce quotes while on the road is a game changer.”
Aleyant will be demonstrating PrintJobManager at drupa 2016 in Dusseldorf, May 31 through June 10 at stand #70C08.
