Pageflex SaaS offers two options for getting started. Users choose the option that best meets the needs of their business or department:

The Basic Option
The Basic Option for Pageflex SaaS includes critical features users need to launch a web-to-print site:
- One production end-user site and one administration site
- One staging site you can use to demonstrate your web-to-print capabilities or stage  products in development
- Purchase and setup of your domain and SSL certificate
- Credentials for accessing sites
- One copy of Pageflex Studio, the design tool built specifically for variable data publishing
- Email and phone support
- Documentation and videos that demonstrate the basics of setting up a Pageflex SaaS web site.

The Quick Start Option
The Quick Start program includes everything in the Basic Option, but also includes options for creating and configuring key products for a web-to-print site.

Using the Quick Start option, users provide the document layout, content, graphic images, and fonts and Pageflex will configure the variables, copyfitting, and flex logic – Pageflex's patented technology that lets users protect the visual design of their work while adjusting the page layout on the fly based on the amount of variable content added for each record.

Pageflex SaaS includes key features and services that ensure maximum uptime of the service.

The Pageflex SaaS is located at a SAS70 Type II facility in a temperature-stable environment that is fire and heat protected. Redundant power and back-up generators are always available if they are ever needed, plus the service is monitored 24/7 via automated tools that constantly monitor hardware, network, and website health.
