Hiflex Launching MIS Cloud Computing at GRAPH EXPO
Additionally, the creation and output of all documents was changed to OpenOffice.org and by switching to this royalty free and and open-source application, investments in Microsoft software are reduced or even eliminated.
Platform Autonomy, Independence and Open Source
The Hiflex Cloud Computing MIS system can be used on Windows, Macintosh or Linux computers making Hiflex platform independent. Expenses for both software and hardware are much lower and the higher system stability of open-source technologies is another major benefit. Design and adaptation of all documents is substantially simplified and accelerated by a WYSIWYG solution – reducing costs of the implementation even further.
Diminished expenditures – diminished costs – new customer potentials
These breakthrough innovations have lead to a significant reduction in the time involved and expenses for the implementation of an MIS system. Savings vary according to company size, complexity of production and range of products, but for smaller to mid-sized companies the savings are dramatic. For a printer with a gross sales revenue of $5 million dollars, the Hiflex MIS Cloud release 2012 can be achieved for less than $50,000 – and users can go live with estimating and order-book in less than 90 days.
Up to now many of the small to mid-sized printers judged Enterprise MIS systems as too expensive because of the initial investment and high cost of implementation. With the new release, HILFLEX MIS now becomes available to all small to mid-sized printers as well.
These printers too can now benefit from the most advanced technology in the industry and do so without any reductions in functionality or performance. The small to medium market of printers represents a huge global market which Hiflex is poised to penetrate aggressively with its new Cloud based system.
Improved flexibility, lower maintenance costs and faster processing times are only three of the qualities of the Hiflex Cloud Computing release. The system setup and go-live times are significantly faster and result with immediate system payback and ROI.
