CLOUD OR ON-PREM - HAVE IT YOUR WAY

PrintVis is sold exclusively through our network of Implementation Partners either as perpetual or subscription and can be hosted on cloud or your own on-prem server.

Many factors are relevant to companies when they must choose between on-prem or cloud. Depending on the size of your company, the number of users you need and other considerations such as cost of hardware maintenance, cost of license compared to cost of subscription price will help you find the right solution for your company.

 

CLOUD – SCALABLE, UNIFYING AND FLEXIBLE

  • PrintVis in the cloud provides system access from anywhere, at any time. All you need is an internet connection to enjoy the benefits of increased productivity, insight and control of your print business.
  • Simple to upgrade or downgrade User types and numbers, you are never locked into a version or paying for more than you need.
  • You can streamline your entire business with the integrated suite of services that PrintVis and Microsoft provide.
  • Accessing company data from anywhere means users have the flexibility to work off-site, such as your sales people, who won’t have to ask you for a production status while visiting clients.

ON PREM

PrintVis is installed and run on your dedicated servers in-house. Under this “perpetual” model, you own and service the hardware infrastructure and the installed software licenses.

  • Save Valuable Time
  • The flexible setup makes it easy for the users to estimate jobs, using the various building-blocks, including templates customized to your specific needs. Quote requests that require multiple options are easily made with a few clicks.
  • The Use of Templates
    When you quote, you can choose to use a standard template which contains all the necessary price items for an estimation. Using a standard template in your quoting allows you to make estimations very quickly and automatically, and with consistency – and nothing will be forgotten.
  • Reduce Errors and save Money
    Quoting errors can be damaging to your company’s bottom line. PrintVis reduces errors by asking all the right questions and leading an estimator through all the relevant factors that go into pricing a job correctly.
  • Be competitive – Get the orders
    PrintVis estimation gives you all the key figures you need – a complete overview of the economic aspects of a job, such as direct cost, total cost, overhead, mark-up and ultimate sales price.

The “Case Management” function is designed to be the daily tool of administration – the “home base” – for all employees involved with the orders. It grants a full view of cases with detailed information on deadlines, delivery dates, customer information, job history, etc.

With this module you can control and follow the flow of jobs throughout your company, with a full overview of outstanding quotes, confirmed orders and jobs in progress.

PrintVis is built to ensure that every job, at any time, has someone designated as being the “current responsible.” At different stages of a Case it is assigned to different Users on your team – from the Estimator to the Salesperson to the Production Coordinator to the Shop Floor Worker.  You will never lose a job and complete data for every order is at your fingertips.

  • Automated or Manual Planning
    Time, capacity and use are generated automatically during the estimation when a new order is made. The system makes suggestions for optimal production efficiency – or you can choose to plan everything manually.
  • Planning According to Your Needs
    There are several levels of planning within PrintVis. Your planning can be based on milestones, or it can be planned to the utmost details of dates, times and production speeds. It is entirely up to you.
  • Graphical Information
    The system contains different graphics where you can see open machine capacity, available man-hours and planned production.

To distribute all information from PrintVis to your production team, use the online real-time electronic job ticket in the Shop Floor module. This will ensure that your production team always has the latest production instructions on hand, with all information drawn directly from the database.

The Shop Floor module retrieves data on consumption of goods and time directly from your production and posts the information to each production order in real-time. This grants you an updated status of every order in your production and your available machine capacity.

  • The ability to accurately forecast inventory need is of crucial importance in a business, where the tendency rapidly moves towards decreased inventory, fewer stocked items and avoiding cash flow stagnation with unused warehouse items.
  • PrintVis grants you a full overview of your purchase needs for both goods and services based on individual job planning. Reliable inventory forecasting helps to keep supplies at optimal levels and saves company capital. Additional inventory management features lead to increased efficiency in the usage of paper, help you to reduce scrap, and allow you to make best use of inventory already in stock.
  • PrintVis allows you to use centralized purchasing, individual purchasing per job coordinator, or a combination of the two. PrintVis also grants you full control over which items are to be managed by automated purchase suggestions in the system.
  • Easily generate purchase orders for print and email with the Purchase Wizard, as well as invoices – as complex and highly detailed as you want, with customizable forms functionality in Business Central.

PrintVis grants you the full overview and history of each case, comparing the quotation with the actual consumption on the job. Was the quote all right? What was your level of cost? What was the profit contribution?

You can use the information in the system over and over again – so that each time you can react more efficiently and with deeper knowledge of your costs and other factors that affect your bottom line.

The invoicing of jobs is fully integrated into the estimating, the consumption and the job costing. Based on this information you can build the invoice with only one click.

Invoices can be built straight from the quoted price, the final price for the order, the actual consumption, any billable overtime, additional quantities, etc.

It is even possible to decide different building methods for each product line. This flexibility ensures that the system can meet all demands on invoicing.

Add fields, tables, and user-specific menus in a few minutes. Set up business rules – for example, payment terms and discounts for individual customers and vendors. Handle the full range of legal requirements and currency issues inherent in international trade, including euro business.

Analyze by a variety of criteria, such as profit, cost centers, departments, regions, product lines, or any other reporting unit. Use a range of pre-defined reports or your own customized company-specific reports. Present report results on the Web or distribute by e-mail, so managers and employees, network partners, and investors can stay informed about your company’s activities.

Built on Microsoft Dynamics PrintVis integrates to MS Office, 3rd-party web-to-print solutions, and JDF (Job Definition Format).
