The Label Company Utilizes Printcafe PSI Flexo To Fulfill Customer Mission

Press release from the issuing company

PITTSBURGH, PA (March 27th, 2003) - Printcafe Software, Inc., the operating system for print(TM), today announced that The Label Company of St. Louis, Mo., is using the Printcafe PSI Flexo print management system to better serve its customers. The Label Company, a 20-year-old manufacturer acquired by Nashua Corporation in February, produces pressure-sensitive materials such as scale and point-of-sale labels. Customer Service Manager Teri Steiner says the company is dedicated to customer satisfaction, such as meeting 99.9 percent of its shipping deadlines. Printcafe's PSI Flexo system has helped The Label Company fulfill that mission. As one of the only management solutions available that uniquely meets the needs of label and flexo printers, PSI Flexo allows users to estimate jobs the way they would plan them. Based on history and operation standards, this enables more accurate pricing, and more accurate delivery date estimates. PSI Flexo has several modules, all of which are integrated, enabling the flow of information through the system, alerting everyone of changes to the job. "We use PSI Flexo for everything - estimating, quoting, invoicing, purchase orders, job planning, capturing material costs," Steiner said. "We customize our reports so we can see the information that we need to see." Each PSI workstation in the facility can act as a data collection terminal. According to Steiner, these data collection capabilities are of special value for The Label Company. "Everything can be done electronically, and we can see real-time information," she said. "There are all kinds of production issues that we capture electronically through PSI. We can pull gross profit reports and find out where we're having problems, and where we need to improve." "PSI Flexo is helping us make better business decisions," Steiner added. Printcafe's PSI Flexo provides a leading edge, Windows-based print management solution with powerful print management tools designed from the ground up with flexography in mind. The solution includes flexo-specific estimating and job planning solutions to meet the unique needs of flexographic and narrow web printing. The estimating module includes a streamlined user interface and a sophisticated Flexo Quotation system, which includes a complete die and cylinder library and visual die search capability. Printcafe's print management systems enable printers to lower costs, improve productivity and increase revenues. These software solutions provide tools that facilitate efficient and accurate completion of each print production job by automating purchasing, operations and financial functions within the printing plant.
