FLEXIBILITY = REDUCED RISK
You’ve undoubtedly felt the effects of print-industry shift over the past decade, most of which can be attributed to a digital revolution – a move away from paper consumption. People have many more tools at their disposal for the process of communication, and are therefore spending their money in new and different places, where print once enjoyed a strong foothold for over a century. The ability to scale your business solution to expand or contract with the fluctuations of the industry is vital to your survival.
ANALYZE. FLEX. ADAPT. SUCCEED.
From Your Floor to the Sky
Thanks to the growth of digital and the emergence of many hosting options in “the cloud,” PrintVis gives you the flexibility to launch with whatever level of functionality you need right now, then expand if and when necessary. It simply does not matter if your company is large or small, with more than 100 employees or less than 10. Buying ERP is no longer an exclusive concept. Depending on your business, a hosted or subscription plan may be the perfect choice – or perhaps not as cost effective. Hosting in the cloud is a recent option – the fact is that right now most PrintVis customers use our solution on their premises. Once again, the point is our flexibility. The method of installing or deploying PrintVis will vary from customer to customer, depending on many factors within your business, but you can rely on us to be honest.
We Will Be Honest with You
We will tell you which option, from our experience, best suits not only your budget but the long-term nature of your business. PrintVis is a standard system. Yes of course we do customization and configuration, but we start with the fundamentals to save you time and money, because we know the print business. While there are many unique requirements for each industry niche, there is also an abundance of commonality. We’ve encountered many customers who despised their previous software but stayed with it – for fear of the cost of switching. Years ago they had spent thousands on custom code and they felt locked in. If this sounds like you, please contact us and discover how many features we offer to the print/graphics industry as standard.
Think of It This Way
You are handed the keys to a 500-room hotel. You want to move in but you’re intimidated by all that space – it’s much more than you need, you’re thinking. But with PrintVis you can start on the ground floor – always knowing the potential for access to the whole hotel is there if you want it. Unlock the doors to those other rooms when you are ready. You can open or close them as needed so that you don’t pay for more than you use. PrintVis is not like other ERP systems where you buy the whole hotel outright, period, while salesmen screech their tires out of the parking lot once the deal is signed. This is what sets us apart: PrintVis is developed exclusively for the needs of the print industry vertical, within the globally-proven ERP standard that is Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
PRINTVIS IS THE ONE SOLUTION YOU CAN AFFORD TODAY AND NEVER OUTGROW
Better Use of Your Resources
Do you spend most of your week putting out fires? By giving you the tools to completely manage your production and improve efficiency within one central system, PrintVis frees your people to provide better customer service, more meaningful feedback and innovation in all their positions. This will lead to a happier and more functional team, which in turn improves overall productivity, with smarter scheduling, use of your cost centers, control over your inventory and ultimately your bottom line.
Increase Your Income
When your production is on schedule your shop is under control. This invariably leads to better quality from your crew – no matter what the product is – which means your customers will begin to view you as a reliable resource for their projects. PrintVis will streamline your workflow as it was meant to be – giving you informed oversight from RFQ to invoice – the entire life cycle of your production. When you have access to every corner of your business, you can distinguish between your profit hubs and your money holes – and respond accordingly.
Decrease Your Outgo
As a true ERP with full general ledger, PrintVis provides the full financial package, so you can automate your job costing, data analysis and other KPIs which shed light on the health of your business. Once you become familiar with PrintVis and the Microsoft Office suite of products (many of which you may use already), you will be running your business in a better way, rather than by the “seat of your pants.” One of the key benefits to this is a significant reduction in errors – which you know can suck the life out of your company – not just through lost profits, but through diminished morale.
From PrintVis Customer Lithocraft
“There is tremendous cost pressure on smaller businesses to enable them to compete while making a profit…Since 2008 the market seems to have continued to consolidate. Those not able to adapt and secure profitable sales closed, while others entered new market arenas such as digital signs and packaging – like labels and films. While there are fewer printers in the market, those that have survived have been motivated to improve performance to sustain the business. Most are improving so the competitive landscape is still very tough.” – Billy Brewer, Lithocraft Inc.
