“Our robust software solutions have been designed specifically to meet the needs of print service providers large and small, covering all aspects of the global print and packaging industry and we will be showcasing a comprehensive range at PacPrint, with a particular focus on new releases,” says Kumar.
Over the past five years, Kumar says the company has invested considerable resources in developing its Cloud Print ERP solution which uses the latest Microsoft technology and data hosted at the Microsoft data center in Sydney.
Based on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) or “cloud” model, the new solution includes mobile apps for IOS and Android and is integrated with MYOB, Xero and a number of web-2-print solutions. It is available on a subscription service based on the modules included and the number of users.
“This allows users to benefit from a turnkey solution for a fixed rental price, with everything included – software, all required modifications, installation, training and support from one of our senior print consultants,” says Kumar.
“The benefits of using a cloud-based solution are many – chief among them is the ability to access information anytime, anywhere, and it also saves around $30 % on infrastructure costs, because users do not have to invest and maintain an expensive local network.
The Cloud Print software has a number of features designed to streamline processes, including: estimating; create work bags, invoices, purchase orders, packaging labels and shipping documents; capture employee time, including actual cost vs. estimate; export of reports to Excel and management of debtors and creditors. Management can define who has access to each level of the program.
Specific modules that will be showcased at PacPrint include the Large Format Quoting Module and the new Label and Carton Packaging Module, which will be showcased for the first time at the show.
“The label module includes a knife register, which allows the listing of knives by size, type, color and codes, the automatic selection of the optimal size cylinder for each job, the automatic calculation of the repeat length and the selection release based on quantity,” Kumar said. “For cartons, the features are similar, with an entry for nested designs and stock grain direction selection.”
The large format quote module supports roll-to-roll and flatbed devices and has a range of convenient features that will be of interest to visitors from the sign, display and large format industries attending PacPrint and Visual ImpactExpo.
“Operators can define the area to be used – be it image area, full stock width or full machine bed width – when calculating speed, and also specify multiple print modes, each with its own individual speeds and brew set,” Kumar says. “Multiple products can be included in a single quote and then converted into individual jobs linked by a common reference code, making it easier to produce and fully track jobs.
Quote & Print’s solutions are all designed on a modular basis, so businesses can purchase the complete package, or just the modules that suit their business and budget.
“For new users and those migrating from a legacy system, this may be the majority of modules, while a small print business may budget to purchase and implement one or two modules each year. “, explains Kumar. “Whatever their requirements, this modular strategy means we can provide the right functionality and ROI for each business, then work with them to adapt the system as their needs grow and change.
PacPrint 2021 will take place from September 28 to October 1 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, co-located with Visual Impact Melbourne and Label & Packaging Expo. Click here to join or for more information, go to www.pacprint.com.au
