To run your print business successfully you need to keep track of all printing-/production processes, warehousing and invoicing in one solution. PrintVis is built on and powered by Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and is the state-of-the-art administrative solution for the graphic and print industry.
The most recent version of PrintVis is based on Microsoft Dynamics Business Central, and we pay close attention to the latest developments from Microsoft ensuring that our solution supports the latest version of Microsoft Dynamics.
The “Case Management” function is designed to be the daily tool of administration – the “home base” – for all employees involved with the orders. It grants a full view of cases with detailed information on deadlines, delivery dates, customer information, job history, etc.
With “Case Management” you can control and follow the flow of jobs throughout your company, with a full overview of outstanding quotes, confirmed orders and jobs in progress.
PrintVis is built to ensure that every job, at any time, has someone designated as being the “current responsible.” At different stages of a Case it is assigned to different Users on your team – from the Estimator to the Sales- person to the Production Coordinator to the Shop Floor Worker. You will never lose a job and complete data for every order is at your fingertips.
To distribute all information from PrintVis to your production team, and to collect and post JobCosting, use the online real-time Shop Floor module. This will ensure that your production team always has the latest, and updated, production instructions on hand, with all information drawn directly from the database.
The Shop Floor module retrieves data on consumption of goods and time directly from your production site and posts the information to each production order in real-time. This grants you an updated status of every order in your production and your available machine capacity.
The ability to accurately forecast inventory requirements is of crucial importance in a business, where the tendency rapidly moves towards decreased inventory, fewer stocked items and avoiding cash flow stagnation with unused warehouse items.
PrintVis grants you a full overview of your purchase requirements for both goods and services based on individual job scheduling. Reliable inventory forecasting helps to keep supplies at optimal levels and saves company capital. Additional inventory management features lead to increased efficiency in the usage of paper, help you to reduce scrap, and allow you to make best use of inventory already in stock.
PrintVis allows you to use centralized purchasing, individual purchasing per job coordinator, or a combination of the two. PrintVis also grants you full control over which items are to be managed by automated purchase suggestions in the system.
Easily generate purchase orders for print and email with the Purchase Wizard, as well as invoices – as complex and highly detailed as you want, with customizable forms functionality in Business Central.
PrintVis grants you the full overview and history of each case, comparing the quotation with the actual consumption on the job. Was the quote all right? What was your level of cost? What was the profit contribution?
You can use the information in the system over and over again – so that each time you can react more efficiently and with deeper knowledge of your costs and other factors that affect your bottom line.
The invoicing of jobs is fully integrated into the estimating, the consumption and the job costing. Based on this information you can build the invoice with a single click. Invoices can be built straight from the offered price, the final price for the order, the actual consumption, any billable overtime, additional quantities, etc.
It is even possible to decide different building methods for each product line. This flexibility ensures that the system can meet all demands on invoicing.
Add fields, tables, and user-specific menus in a few minutes. Set up business rules – for example, payment terms and discounts for individual customers and vendors.
Handle the full range of legal requirements and currency issues inherent in international trade, including euro business.
Analyze by a variety of criteria, such as profit, cost centers, departments, regions, product lines, or any other reporting unit. Use a range of pre-defined reports or your own customized company-specific reports. Present report results on the Web or distribute by e-mail, so managers and employees, network partners, and investors can stay informed about your company’s activities. Integrations
