At PrintEx 19, PrintIQ launched a new module of its workflow software, printIQ Campaign.
The module provides a complete quoting, production, packing and distribution process. Mick Rowan, PrintIQ product director, says the Campaign module ensures all elements of a campaign get where they need to be and when they need to be there. It uses job thumbnails to automatically create the picking/ packing sheets for each specific delivery. This process alone will save hours of manual sheet creation and associated labour costs.
“The module helps an internal team to run a campaign from conception to completion. It allows an operator to easily quote the production of the total quantity of each item in the campaign, and then distribute various elements to multiple addresses and locations. This allows for an easy production path for each and every element,” Rowan said.
The key points of the PrintIQ Campaign module include:
- Simplified management of freight: commonly now up to12 per cent of your cost structure
- Efficiency gains – remove significant manual labour and extra touch points
- Automatic creation of pick lists
- Barcode scanning or touch screen process
- Location tracking for every part of each campaign
The printlQ workflow offers the reliable single source of truth about every job accepted for production bringing modern tools within a cloud-based infrastructure. Combine this with multiple third-party integrations, and a development team focused on the future of print, and you can see that printlQ offers a compelling case for change
The local company has gone from strength to strength since it launched its print industry specific software in 2013 with 50 staff now on the books and around three sites going live globally each week. Its phenomenal rise has seen take up from companies in Australia, New Zealand and around the world with Mayfields in the UK signing up, along with B Squared in New York plus many others. Rowan adds, “We’ve got it all over the place now. We’ve been going about three sites a week going live which in our space is unheard of.”
