Quote & Print Software has revealed that it will be launching a new Label & Carton Packaging Print ERP module at PacPrint to join its large-format, sheet-fed and digital print ERP software.
The 40-year-old Australian software house has made its name delivering print ERP solutions for print service providers in Australia and across the Asia Pacific and Middle East regions, installing more than 1000+ printers in 12 countries.
Quote & Print Software managing director Shanti Kumar said the company will take the opportunity provided by the industry’s regional tradeshow to showcase this new offering, as well as modules for a range of sectors.
“Our robust software solutions have been designed specifically to meet the needs of print service providers, large and small, covering all aspects of the global print and packaging industry, and we’ll be showcasing a full range at PacPrint, with a special focus on new releases,” Kumar said.
Kumar added that over the past five years, the company has invested considerable resources to develop its Cloud Print ERP solution which uses the latest Microsoft technology and data hosted at the Microsoft Data Centre in Sydney.
The final solution, based on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) or Cloud model, includes mobile applications for IOS and Android and is integrated to MYOB, Xero and several web-2-print solutions that is available on a subscription service based on the modules included and number of users.
“This allows users to benefit from a turnkey solution for a fixed rental price, with everything included – software, any modifications required, installation, training and support from one of our senior print consultants,” Kumar said.
“The benefits of using a cloud-based solution are many – chief among them is the ability to access information anytime, anywhere, plus it also saves about 30 per cent in infrastructure costs, because users don’t have to invest in, and maintain, an expensive Local Area Network.”
All software has several core functions designed to streamline processes. These include estimating; creation of job bags, invoices, purchase orders, packing labels and shipping documents; capture of employee time including actual cost versus estimated; exporting of reports to Excel and debtor and creditor management. Management can define who has access to each level of the program.
Specific modules which will be featured at the show including the Wide-Format Quoting Module and the new Label & Carton Packaging Module, which will be demonstrated for the first time at PacPrint.
“The label module features a knife register, which allows knives to be listed by size, type, colour and codes, automatic selection of the optimally-sized cylinder for each job, automatic repeat length calculation, and quantity-based press selection,” Kumar said.
“For cartons, the features are similar, with input for interlocking designs and a stock grain direction selection.”
According to Kumar, the Wide-Format Quoting Module, which supports both roll-fed and flat-bed devices, will also be of particular interest to the visitors of PacPrint and the Visual Impact Expo.
PacPrint 2021 will run from 28 September to 1 October at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, co-locating with Visual Impact Melbourne and the Label & Packaging Expo. Click here to register.
