Tharstern launches trio of new MIS features
Print management information system provider Tharstern has added three new features, for direct mail and large format printing, that are available as add-ons to its software platform.
The direct mail add-on allows users to capture all the details of a direct mail campaign in an estimate, including manufactured products, supplied items, postage, and internal processes such as data handling.
The installation services feature can be used to create estimates for projects that include additional services related to the installation of these products, such as labour, machinery hire, and pick and pack charges. Tharstern says this feature will be particularly useful for point-of-sale or signage printers who supply to large companies with varying store profiles, or multi-site organisations with differing needs.
Third new feature is the mobile inventory tool, a web app designed for use on handheld barcode scanning devices, smartphones, or tablets.
Chris Burn, head of product at Tharstern, said the company had been working on the new tools throughout all last year.
“The demand from our existing customers for estimates involving services such as direct mail and installations has been on the rise for some time, so doing something major in this area has been on our wish list for a while,” he said.
“The new mobile inventory tool is a versatile product that benefits from the larger resolution screens and the general usability of the latest devices, providing a richer user experience.”
