Chambersburg, PA – for release December 9, 2003 – The e-LYNXX Corporation today announced the release of printLYNXX Version 5.13 with enhancements that provide buyers with more tools to shorten frequently complicated and time consuming processes.
The major upgrades in printLYNXX permit buyers and vendors to more easily handle always-present change orders and to manage divided payments based on partial completion or shipment of jobs.
“Management of the purchase of a print job, with its many milestones and post-purchase modifications, requires a tool that brings order and ease to a sometimes chaotic process,” says e-LYNXX Vice President Doug Harbach. “Therefore, a solution that does not work for buyers in their day-to-day activities to manage and archive such things as approval and tracking of both partial payments and change orders cannot be termed a ‘full solution’.”
Harbach says printLYNXX not only contains the requisite tools that provide effective vendor sourcing and management, specification writing and archiving, estimating and firm price quoting, automated workflow and job status communication, and handling of financials, but goes deeper in those areas than other solutions.
“e-LYNXX has nearly three decades of hands-on experience in the day-to-day, sometime hectic lives, of marketing professionals, print buyers, and printers, and understands the challenge of building a web-based solution that matches all of those stakeholders challenges,” Harbach explains. “printLYNXX 5.13 builds even more into a solution that shows understanding of all the nuances of a print buy, and offers tools not available in other solutions to efficiently and correctly complete the contractual and financial aspects of each print job.”
printLYNXX 5.13 provides a more powerful and easy-to-use manner to initiate, negotiate, and track contract modifications, including constant updating of the financial impact of these modifications on the final price of a job. In fact, the intuitive printLYNXX system will automatically prompt a user to request a contract modification when the system detects a slip in the schedule.
While printLYNXX already boasts a robust job shipment module that allows creation and tracking of multiple destination shipments, the upgrade will also handle the approval and correct association of multiple payments when these are contractually required, or assist the buyer in negotiating and gaining approvals for partial payments when requested by the vendor. The system, in either case, keeps tracks of these payments and ensures each are reflected against the total running invoice.
