The leading web-to-print and POD workflow solution join forces to create lights out manufacturing automation
Solana Beach, CA - Printable Technologies Inc., a leading provider of software as a service (SaaS) web-to-print and marketing personalization solutions, announced today a new integration with Onpoint On Demand Symbio, the premiere JDF-compliant POD manufacturing automation solution.
Printable's best in class SaaS web-to-print solution, MarcomCentral, now seamlessly integrates with Onpoint On Demand's Symbio platform to create ultra-efficient POD manufacturing capability. The integration of the two solutions allows print service providers to unify and automate production workflows resulting in reduced production cost, increased speed, and greater output capacity from existing resources.
"We are extremely pleased to announce the new Symbio integration," said Coleman Kane, CEO and president at Printable Technologies. "A key strength of MarcomCentral is its ability to connect powerful workflow solutions. Onpoint On Demand's Symbio solution enhances our client's ability to be successful."
GSB Inc., a mutual customer of Onpoint On Demand and Printable, was the first organization to employ the new integration. "We wanted to automate our POD manufacturing capability to increase our profit and scalability," says Stephan Steiner, CEO of GSB, Inc. "We use both Printable MarcomCentral and FusionPro Server to support client programs. We purchased Symbio to unify workflows between systems and optimize our manufacturing capability. It appears GSB has made a wise choice in choosing Symbio to automate our workflow. Onpoint has been super easy to work with, and very responsive when the rubber hit the road and our sites went live. Most importantly, their software works and works well."
Clients currently owning both Symbio and MarcomCentral now have the ability to automate POD production to a wide array of digital press and finishing equipment. Other benefits of the integration include: dynamic file retrieval, pre-order and pre-production preflight, intelligent equipment routing, job batching, integrated shipping, and automated credit card settlement.
