Efi launches upgrade to its PrintSmith Vision MIS software

The new version 5 release of Efi PrintSmith Vision MIS software – part of the Efi Quick Print Suite of business and production management tools – delivers optimized performance and enhanced flexibility for small commercial and quick print businesses. Developed by Electronics For Imaging, this is the first 100% HTML version of PrintSmith Vision, replacing legacy systems based on Adobe Flash technology.

The new MIS offering can run as an Efi cloud-managed solution to provide business owners with peace of mind and complete confidence knowing that business-critical customer information is secure, with maximum uptime and availability.

We are excited about the upgrade to PrintSmith Vision 5.0,” said PrintSmith Vision user Michael Price, director of IT Systems Operations for AlphaGraphics “The benefits of a single user interface on HTML are huge. I have been using the new feature set and have been impressed with the Efi development team’s response to requests and suggestions. We are looking forward to the upgrade and are ready for the changes and feature enhancements.”

Optimized performance and anywhere access

PrintSmith Vision 5 has been designed and configured to provide users with premium performance. It is optimized 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 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 touchpoints in managing incoming work, significantly reducing the potential for errors.

Integrated one-click shipping with ShipExpress

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.

One Efi customer using PrintSmith Vision with ShipExpress, Randy Blum, receiving and mailing manager for Omaha, Nebraska-based Regal Printing Company, has achieved cost savings thanks to the software’s ability to consolidate most of the company’s shipping tasks into a single solution.

In the past, we subscribed to several different services for shipping and mailing,” said Blum, “each with its own monthly costs and software interface. Being able to do everything from a single interface not only simplified operations, but it also saved us about $2,000 per year in those monthly fees and supplies.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
