Printers Software and Gravity Free Partner on On-Line Finished Goods Inventory Software
Press release from the issuing company
Sarasota, FL - Printers Software, Inc., a leader in providing printing management software systems, recently launched a new eCommerce Web site that allows printing companies and their clients to order finished goods on-line. The software was jointly developed by Printers Software and GravityFree, a Sarasota-based Web site and Internet software developer, to make every step of the fulfillment process easier, faster and more consistent.
Founded in 1979, Printers Software was the first company to provide high quality, cost-effective, integrated management software for commercial and in-plant printers of all sizes and types including sheet fed, Web, binding, finishing, and pre-press plants. Printers Software’s products have been installed in over 3,000 locations, making it one of the most popular software systems in the industry.
Printers Software boasts many industry firsts, such as the first PC systems for estimating, data collection, dynamic production scheduling, and keypad-less shop floor data collection with two-way communications. And now, they are providing the first integrated on-line solution that allows customers to access inventory status and commerce functions from their own office via the Internet with no transaction charges.
The new software, which is called Web Finished Goods Inventory, allows clients to log into an extranet - to a private window that is personalized and branded to each printer and/or client. This allows the print shop staff and/or their clients to check current stock levels, place orders and ship to multiple locations. Around the clock access and ease of use make this tool invaluable to an industry predicated on customer service, and fast, accurate deliveries of goods with little room for error. According to Paul Grieco, President of Printers Software, “This development combines Printers Software’s 26 years of printing industry MIS experience with the latest Web technology from GravityFree.” “It should revolutionize the way printers do business and the way customers receive their products,” said Scott Heaps, co-owner of GravityFree.
