Latest additions enhance current web-to-print offerings with prepress automation and MIS/ERP tools

MELVILLE, N.Y., - Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced it is expanding its suite of offerings from Aleyant. With this announcement two new Aleyant products join Pressero and eDocBuilder in the Canon Solutions America production print portfolio, tFLOW and PrintJob Manager.  Exclusively available in the United States from Canon Solutions America, both tFLOW and PrintJobManager will be available for order taking and delivery on October 2, 2017.

The new suite supports Canon Solutions America's production print solutions portfolio, which features the industry-leading Canon imagePRESS and varioPRINT digital presses. These latest additions expand Canon Solutions America's ability to leverage the strength of Aleyant software and its solutions coupled with professional services and Canon equipment to create a robust, scalable workflow solution at value-driven prices.

  • Pressero is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customized to your needs as well as your clients'. This includes 'mobile-first' responsive designs for branded sites to ensure proper display regardless of the viewing device being used.
  • eDocBuilder, Aleyant's on-line design and web-based personalized communications module, is bundled with every Pressero subscription from Canon Solutions America.
  • tFLOW is Aleyant's workflow automation solution, and helps customers easily and quickly manage customer jobs, files and deadlines, with fewer errors and faster turnarounds. Aleyant tFLOW can auto-receive files via any Aleyant Pressero Web-to-Print Solution.
  • PrintJobManager is MIS/ERP simplified. It uses a new mobile, cloud-based approach to MIS that includes a fast means of generating market-driven pricing, job management, inventory tracking, real-time job tracking, and estimating. PrintJobManager works seamlessly with Pressero web-to-print and tFLOW workflow automation systems.

The new suite of offerings most notably expands the Aleyant and Canon Solutions America collaboration to offer unique cross platform solutions to production print customers. Targeting Canon Solutions America's commercial print and in-plant Central Reproduction Department (CRD) customer base, Aleyant solutions bring a robust suite of features and functionality at attractive prices.

"By adding tFLOW for workflow automation and PrintJobManager for job management, inventory control, real-time job tracking, and estimating, Aleyant and Canon Solutions America have a suite of solutions that broaden the spectrum of what is available to customers from a print solutions portfolio perspective," said Greg Bane, channel sales manager for Aleyant.

"Once again, Canon Solutions America is excited to take our collaboration with Aleyant to the next level and develop intuitive options for our valued customers," said Naoki "Mike" Sannomiya, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Enterprise Services and Solutions, Canon Solutions America. "Pressero's innovative web-to-print, variable data, and instant storefront features combined with tFLOW's workflow automation capabilities and PrintJobManager's MIS features enable commercial grade end-to-end production workflow solutions to be within the grasp of every customer. When Pressero is integrated with tFLOW and/or PrintJobManager, orders flow from the storefront directly into production workflows without operator intervention, helping reduce turnaround and improve productivity. The expanded suite of Aleyant offerings with tFLOW and PrintJobManager provides a range of dynamic new options for our customers."

Web-to-Print Solutions

Aleyant PresseroTM is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customized to individual client needs. This includes "mobile-first" design for branded sites and administrative functions to ensure proper display regardless of the viewing device being used. Every Pressero subscription from Canon Solutions America is enhanced with the addition of Aleyant eDocBuilder, a web-based variable data publishing system built specifically to easily integrate into Aleyant or third-party web-to-print or MIS solutions features advanced typography control, imposition, scripting support, PDF workflows, rapid template creation, Excel merge capabilities and more. Aleyant's optional Automated Workflow Integrator (AWI) uses a rules-based approach to automate such processes as file renaming, unzipping zipped files, or sending files and metadata directly to a RIP for processing, eliminating multiple steps in the workflow.

Prepress Workflow Automation Solutions

Aleyant tFLOW can auto-receive files via your Aleyant Pressero Web-to-Print Solution. Jobs are automatically checked and fixed as they arrive instead of letting them pile up in an inbox. Automatically send proof files to your clients for approval. Auto-send print-ready production files to specific departments, or 3rd party imposition, RIPs, or cutters. Use tFLOW's built-in collaboration, chat, and review feature with customers and your team to eliminate email chains, text messages and calls. Help avoid delays, missed deadlines and costly mistakes. tFLOW simplifies and automates difficult file management tasks and processes to help increase efficiency and production throughput. It tames the chaos of customer emails, phone calls, and file issues.

Order Management Solutions

PrintJobManager is MIS/ERP simplified. It uses a new mobile, cloud-based approach to MIS that includes a fast means of generating market-driven pricing, job management, inventory tracking, real-time job tracking and estimating. The simple setup and use of the cloud-based PrintJobManager enables you to manage your shop from any device, including the one you carry in your pocket or purse. PrintJobManager is a standalone application for estimating, inventory management, shop floor data collection, and more. Conveniently, it will also work seamlessly with the award winning Pressero web-to-print e-commerce and variable data system. While Pressero is not required to use PrintJobManager, product pricing created in it can be used seamlessly within Pressero storefronts, eliminating the need to create and maintain separate pricing systems for online stores versus your estimating and job management systems.
