How many times do you touch a job?
The typical print shop today is burdened with a variety of manual, disconnected processes. Estimating, writing up orders, proof approvals, preparing job jackets, scheduling, imposing, generating shipping labels, accounting entry and a lack of order tracking topped off with the seemingly endless task of re-keying the same data into multiple systems can easily have you losing money before you’ve even printed the job.

Keeping track of all the art and communications with the customer in one place is awesome. We have cut our paper files by at least 80% by going with paperless job tickets for most of our digital and wide format jobs. Everything anyone could need is in the system.
I have had a few people out sick that have been able to still get most of their work done remotely through the system thru emails and writing up jobs. When I take a day off I can easily keep jobs going and stay in communication with my customers.
PressWise combines these tools into one browser-based application delivering measurable profit through hands-off automation freeing up skilled staff to spend more time on high-value projects.
Before PressWise, each order would take about an hour of admin time to create the estimate and job ticket, get the job into production and get it shipped. With an average of 225 orders per week at an average order of $500, the cost of manual processing rapidly ate into margins. Each job now consumes an average of 20 minutes of labor, resulting in an annual savings for us of about $45,000.
