EFI launches new version of PrintSmith Vision MIS
The world’s biggest MIS developer EFI is launching a new version 5 release of EFI PrintSmith Vision MIS software, which it says delivers optimised performance and enhanced flexibility for small commercial and quick print businesses.
The new version is the first 100 per cent HTML version of PrintSmith Vision, replacing legacy systems based on Adobe Flash technology. It is part of the EFI Quick Print Suite of business and production management tools.
The new MIS offering can run as an EFI cloud-managed solution, giving printers assurance, says EFI, that business-critical customer information is secure, with maximum uptime and availability.
PrintSmith Vision 5 has been designed and configured to provide users with premium performance. It is optimised for remote management and operation, and users can benefit from a faster screen response. New bulk management tools in the software further ensure users’ ability to get more work done in less time.
New FastTrack HTML5 modules in the software give managers and operators the flexibility to manage key tasks on the go without the need for complex cross-training. PrintSmith Vision 5 also enables end-to-end job tracking and automatic notifications to reduce or eliminate the need to spend time finding job statuses and answering customer inquiries.
As part of the end-to-end, integrated EFI Quick Print Suite, PrintSmith Vision 5 also features premium connectivity to EFI MarketDirect StoreFront software, giving users the productivity advantage of automated processing for web-to-print orders. Print shops can further reduce touch points in managing incoming work, significantly reducing the potential for errors.
A new module for PrintSmith Vision and the Quick Print Suite, PrintSmith Vision ShipExpress, streamlines shipping and makes shipping and delivery more cost effective. ShipExpress’s multi-carrier support capabilities give users the ability to quickly and easily find the best rates for parcel handling, with the ability to consolidate production of packing slips and labels in one simple step.
