Any company involved in the printing industry has to be flexible enough to keep up with changing industry technology and increasingly demanding customer expectations. Unfortunately, many printers find themselves with manual processes, bottlenecks in critical areas and data inaccuracies that put a strain on business and production processes and a drag on profits. In addition, losing any amount of time can prevent a printing company from taking advantage of new opportunities in the market.
The answer is simple. Deploying a comprehensive print MIS, like HiFlow, can grow revenue for print service providers and produce a quick ROI for your investment in the software system. Print Management Information Systems (MIS) integrate all of the disparate systems in a printing company – from front end processes like estimating, accounting and pre-press to the entire production process. All of this ensures that your business has timely estimates, efficient workflows, optimized production, real time reporting and insight into profit margins.
