Post Press Finishing

PrintVis is an excellent ERP/MIS solution for the traditional Post Press Finishing shop.

Are You A Post Press Finishing Business Looking For The Right ERP/MIS?

We leverage PrintVis, the Microsoft-certified MIS built specifically for the print industry, based on Microsoft Dynamics, the world-renowned ERP system for mid-market businesses.

PrintVis & Post Press

Post-press facilities such as print finishers and binderies have their own unique needs when it comes to the daily management of production. PrintVis Orbit can be tailored to suit all of your requirements, from estimation to job monitoring to shipping. Because print finishers generally handle added-value product from their customers (the printer), they bear a greater liability when something goes wrong. Therefore, with PrintVis, you can ensure that your 3rd shift crew maintains the same QA standards adhered to by the day shift when management is on premises!

PrintVis is Print MIS that empowers your entire post-press operation!

Binderies typically provide subcontracting to printing companies. The nature of the machine park for finishing is often more specialized than in regular printing companies. As a result, often we see hardcover binding, hot foil stamping and special lamination or varnishes here. In addition, for binderies we activate some fields and formula which are not so often used. When giving quotes some other parameters are important; finished formats, book block and signature sizes are key indicators

PrintVis Tool for Post Press Finishing

PrintVis has tools to estimate based on these indicators to help support the busy quoting department. We often see requests for the same bindery job in 2-3 different variations of method. This is the reason why the best way to smoothly handle this is to have good templates and create the job in 3 different variations. As a result, this part of the industry can make great use of the price matrix functionality which allows detailed price lists for pages and quantities. Another feature is that it communicates this information to customers. Price lists in Excel sheets are common for binderies – but with PrintVis they know the exact economic value to the company for each price given out.

Binderies must manage material provided by the printer and material which is in-house in the same production. For instance, the cardboard imposition for front, back and side and the optimum imposition of ‘bindery leather’ material is all estimated to make best use of the many types of raw material which are used. Furthermore, shipping from binderies can be directly to customers (sometimes in pre-printed boxes from the printing company), to other binderies for more work – or back to the printer. Consequently, this information is an important part of the project management which PrintVis helps provide.
