Check Out the Latest Enhancements to PressWise
SmartSoft (Booth 538) is showing the latest enhancements to PressWise, the all-in-one, cloud-based MIS and print automation platform that includes web-to-print storefronts, estimating, order management, production automation, shipping and fulfillment, and mail processing.
Improvements and additions that will be showcased include:
Advanced Impositioning: In addition to Work and Turn support, PressWise now supports Work and Tumble impositions, with clear images to let your estimator know exactly where the system is placing the gripped edge, the axis of rotation, as well as the position of any optional Dutch positions.
Full Service Mailing: PressWise now offers full support for integrated Full Service Mailings, including a convenient folder that contains all required mail.dat files to make uploading to PostalOne! more efficient. This is part of a wider overhaul of the Mailing Module in PressWise that includes multiple UI enhancements to make the whole process of managing direct mail campaigns as efficient as possible.
Purchase Orders: Having a streamlined way to outsource work is of paramount importance in today’s printing environment—whether it’s a single process (sending something out to laminate), getting materials to complete a project (grommets, stands, etc.), or having the entire product produced outside your plant. PressWise has integrated the Purchasing process into the production workflow to allow outsourcing at these levels.
Signature Capture for Delivery: PressWise now gives you the ability to digitally capture proof of delivery signatures on delivery orders, including the option to view a map of the delivery address in the process. The ‘signed’ packing slip can be automatically attached and emailed to the customer along with the invoice, eliminating not only clicks, but also time spent scanning or making a copy of packing slip, and sending it to the customer.
Single Sign-On: The SAML 2.0 protocol is now offered as an add-on service so you can use your existing authentication server on your network to control access to PressWise, both for storefront users (e.g. for In-Plants), as well as back-end users.
Shipping Carrier Options: PressWise has always offered integrated shipping through the more common parcel carriers (UPS, FedEx, and the USPS)—however, for those with needs beyond these three, PressWise now allows the user to enter any number of Shipping Carriers, each with their own collection of Shipping Methods, tracking URLs, etc.
Besides these features, there has been a lot of focus on ease of use, and user interface improvements. These and other items will all be available for demonstration at the PressWise by SmartSoft booth.
