Print Management Information System company, Tharstern, have announced three new features are now available as add-ons to their software. Companies who deliver Direct Mail services or Large Format print are set to benefit from these latest developments, as will printers who want to keep track of their Inventory on the shop floor using mobile devices.
The Direct Mail add-on tool will allow users to capture all the details of a direct mail campaign in an estimate, including manufactured products, supplied items, postage and internal processes such as data handling. The Installation Services feature can be used to create estimates for projects that include additional services related to the installation of these products, such as labor, machinery hire and pick and pack charges. This feature will be particularly useful for point of sale or signage printers who supply to large companies with varying store profiles, or multi-site organizations with differing needs.
Chris Burn, Head of Product at Tharstern explains why they have developed these new tools, “The demand from our existing customers for estimates involving services such as direct mail and installations has been on the rise for some time, so doing something major in this area has been on our wish list for a while. We have been working on it throughout all of last year and it has undergone product testing at a UK direct mail house.”
And the third feature, is their brand-new Mobile Inventory tool which is a web app designed for use on the latest handheld barcode scanning devices, smartphones or tablets. Warehouse personnel can now perform a full range of inventory tasks without requiring access to a Tharstern terminal, including, moving stock, issuing stock, item check, location checks and much more.
“The new Mobile Inventory tool is a really versatile product that benefits from the larger resolution screens and the general usability of the latest devices, providing a much richer user experience.” Chris Burn, Tharstern.
