Prism Demonstrates Mobile Management Information System for Printers at GRAPH EXPOSeptember 27, 2010
WILMINGTON, MA—09/27/2010—Print jobs are becoming more complex, with faster turnaround times requiring almost immediate feedback and decision-making. To manage this, senior management requires nimble print management system access to real time, mobile management information via smart phones, Internet browsers, and VPNs to company networks. At GRAPH EXPO, from October 3-6 in Chicago, IL, at booth 4018, Prism will demonstrate its enabling technology, mobileMIS, which offers Key Performance Indicator dashboards, quotations, warehouse management, machine, jobs and performance monitoring from mobile phones and browsers.
This technology, first introduced at IPEX in May, is an extension of Prism's management information system, Prism WIN, its MIS/ERP software suite tailored for the requirements of printers, along with Prism QTMS, a lean production management system with machine monitoring modules, custom-developed sensors and plant-wide WIP tracking that automatically record and collate shop-floor information and statistics. Both solutions offer end-to-end management of medium to large printing companies in a fully integrated, modular software and hardware solution and will also be demonstrated during GRAPH EXPO.
Prism mobileMIS: Access to business information anywhere, any time
Prism mobileMIS is an application that lets users access Key Performance Indicator dashboards, quotations, warehouse management, and machine, job, and performance monitoring on mobile phones and browsers. Key performance indicator dashboards allow a high level view into business performance, and QTMS dashboards give a view into machine speeds, status, operators, and quantities.
Prism mobileMIS is browser enabled and easy to use, with no client software needed. Users can launch their print MIS and track their business directly from their mobile phones. Whether checking key business sales, production, financial and customer service performance indicators, asking for an instant, real-time price quote, establishing a JDF link with prepress, press and finishing equipment from a smartphone, or managing inventory from a hand held wireless device, Prism mobileMIS can help.
"Business intelligence is the lifeblood of a successful company. Print providers expect print management system access to real time, mobile management information via smart phones, Internet browsers, and VPNs to company networks," explains Filip Buyse, President and CEO of Prism. "mobileMIS allows executives to stay in contact with what is happening in production facilities."
Building an MIS around the print business.
Prism WIN is so flexible that it allows printers to continue to operate their business the way they prefer, rather than force fitting them into a software developer's notion of how to run a business. It has many tools and flexible processes to build a system that reflects a printer's own business.
