What exactly is PrintVis?
Simply put, PrintVis is the ultimate solution for the graphics industry. Built directly on and powered by Microsoft Dynamics NAV, PrintVis handles all the tasks and processes your company requires every day. We deliver a standard core software solution, drastically reducing downtime and expensive consulting hours caused by endless customization and scope creep.
Of course, we can handle any modifications that might be needed – we have hundreds of customers around the world, with graphics businesses of all sizes and types. Through our Partner program we team up with NAV experts in your area so you can get local support on our globally-proven system.
PrintVis gives you a sturdy, ERP platform for your business, no matter what size it might be today. Into this we’ve developed the print-specific MIS functionality you’ve been looking for – to control all the little details – Papers. Presses. Substrates. Inks. Coatings. Adhesives. Gripper margins and grain direction. Customer proofs and delivery dates. Web to print and computer to plate. We have a thorough understanding of your industry, including the many print sub-verticals such as packaging, label, newspaper, finishing and more.
PrintVis will not only show you all the fundamentals–your customers, your schedules, your production and your workers, but also the metrics that tell you how to keep your business on track. And perhaps, where alarm bells should be ringing.
PrintVis is not just software – it’s a better way to run your business and a solution which you will never outgrow.

Embed vs. Add-on – What’s the Difference?
PrintVis is built directly within Microsoft Dynamics NAV – it is not a separate system. While an add-on (sometimes called a plug-in) is an external piece of software designed to work in tandem with a program and share information back and forth, our software operates within Microsoft Dynamics NAV, allowing it to perform additional print-centric functionalities and features not available in standard NAV, but never running the risk of being left behind, like separate MIS systems often are.
So you get a robust-yet-flexible management information system that gives you control over every process – from estimating to job planning to inventory management (your papers, your inks, your plates, your dies) – all the way through to invoicing, shipping and job costing after the fact. We focus on the unique needs of the print industry and let the core ERP functionality be handled by Microsoft.
Bottom line: You can purchase Microsoft Dynamics NAV without PrintVis; you cannot purchase PrintVis without Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This is one of our core strengths and what sets us apart from so many other MIS products.
Most print MIS products start with basic print-related functionality but require you to integrate with your other vital business needs – your financials, your warehousing, your supply chain – forcing you to work with multiple systems, separately – or to “add-on” from there.
PrintVis gives you everything you need in one total system.
We pursue constant development, working with Microsoft to synchronize our updates (an effort which has settled nicely into a reliable, annual release instead of multiple small upgrades throughout the year). Of course this also means that when you choose PrintVis to run your graphics business, you are also going with the biggest, most well-known and trusted producer of software in the world: Microsoft. As a long-time Gold-Certified Microsoft Partner, PrintVis can give you confidence in your own future, offering a framework that is flexible enough to meet your changing needs, but also a sturdy, standard foundation that you will never outgrow.
Sharing Microsoft’s ambitious development objectives, PrintVis is setting the standard for MIS/ERP systems for the global printing industry.
