When running your print shop, you have precious time to worry about ensuring your web to print, MIS, accounting, scheduling and shipping software work together. You want to ensure your technology works seamlessly to bring orders into your system quickly and efficiently, with as few touches as possible. Likewise when it’s time to go to production you want to ensure that your operators aren’t rekeying basic information, and that an invoice can be generated quickly and efficiently. EFI’s Ron Teller and John Fleming will take you through the most critical functions and demonstrate the importance of having an integrated print suite to run your in-plant.
