Web-to-print

Imprint’s integration with web-to-print solutions provided by third parties makes it easy for your customers to go on-line and place an order and seamlessly integrate with Imprint while giving you the ability to choose the system that suits you best.

Imprint’s integration makes it easy for you to process the order by automatically checking held stock levels of product, producing a picking note and if you have stock create a works order and scheduling this in for production.

Imprint’s MIS receives the order from the web-to-print software via a simple API and automatically creates a works instruction ticket/job bag combining relevant information along with technical information held in the Imprint MIS.

The job bag can be automatically created and/or printed out on receipt of the web-to-print order. The cost sheet is created and the job can be linked to a finished stock code with the production order placed against it including the production time for scheduling. Imprint currently links to RedTie, VPress, ROI360 Storefront, Xralle and XMPie uStore.

If you are considering a web-to-print solution, do let us know and we will talk to your provider about integration.

eXpert Estimating

Developed over 35 years eXpert estimating automatically works out the most cost effective method of production and produces a quotation letter in seconds by analysing and selecting the best printing process and finishing route for the job in question.

Incorporating impositions, it will work out from an outline specification the most cost effective method of production, completing an entire estimate in seconds.

Because it works from imposition layouts, sheet sizes are calculated taking into account grips, trims, leaves, gutters, binding laps and trim, etc. with the option to create JDF data from information created within the estimate.

eXpert estimating is a powerful product that will immediately transform any estimating department.

JDF/JMF Solutions

Imprint’s approved JDF solution provides JDF functions to submit jobs from the Works Ticket to Prepress and Press.

Base functionality is presented via the eXpert Estimating module. The system can be configured to specify the fold pattern, press dimensions, plate size run length, waste and overs, together with all pages of an imposition scheme. When processing an estimate to a job the plate dimensions, sheet sizes and specification of the signatures are presented to the user with the option to amend if required (these can be manually entered if no estimate is present).

On output of the production job an XML is created detailing all job components. (Hot Folder or http posting are supported).

On output of the XML file the Imprint IIS web service collects the submitted job and compares the job properties to the currently supported JDF specification. If the conversion is successfully completed then a JDF file is submitted to the prepress or pressroom engine. All parameters can be easily managed from within Imprint or via the integrated web service.

Direct Mail Business Control System (BCS)

Imprint has developed a Direct Mail Business Control System (BCS) that focuses on the requirements of the complex direct mail market.

The BCS Estimating module handles multiple items/components of differing run lengths including data handling and processing with the ability to split out detailed pricing in a quotation. The system also handles laser and digital print click rates for simplex and duplex personalisation.

BCS Works Instructions are produced with a user definable format that makes it easy to enter and control orders, regardless of the number of components and whether they are produced internally, outworked or supplied by the client. Multiple cells and their individual mailing target dates and variable components can be handled and managed within one order.

Within the BCS the Shop Floor Data Capture offers more individual and immediate advantages, in one hit, than any other with a choice of input devices such as keyboards, barcode readers, or touch screen. JMF data can be also be received through the Shop Floor Data Capture module or, where a machine is not JDF enabled, Imprint's SentinelNet Machine Monitoring system can capture performance data from almost any print, finishing or enclosing equipment.

All data is captured live in order to access valuable real costs to a job and will also update Production Control and Imprint's on-line Factory Viewing system.

Client supplied items can be tracked and traced against cells and the Imprint Warehouse system can track the location of all components related to a mailing and its cells through bar code location and pallet labelling and movements traced via hand held 'palm' computers and Wireless LAN. Campaign elements and cells can be quickly located when required for personalisation, enclosing or delivery.

Print Management

The Imprint Print Management module does just that and gives total control of all aspects of the buying process and supply chain. With the ability to search suppliers by type of and capability you can target the right suppliers for the enquiry created. Paper prices can be separated out to enable use of your supplier’s paper price or you can use your own paper price should you wish to supply the paper yourself.

Linking the Print Management module to Imprint’s Production Control Module allows you to see a job’s progress through the production process. You can also load individual suppliers on to the Production Control module, orders placed with the supplier automatically load on to the Production board and update enabling you to track at a glance your orders placed with these suppliers.

Imprint’s powerful Purchase Order Processing module underlies many of the Print Management module providing easy access to suppliers, purchase orders, purchase invoices with options for user spend control limits and spend authorisation.

Imprint Desktop

The imprint desktop is a customisable window that each user uses logs into when using the Imprint system. Most tasks can be performed from the desktop without the need to go into different modules.

From the desktop users can view everything relevant to their customers and thier jobs. From here users can view estimates, job bags, invoices, contact messages, emails, delivery notes and any other relevant data.

The imprint desktop makes the use of the system easy, quick and without masses of clicking. Fully customisable user to user, it gives access to exactly what is wanted. Reports and documents can also be assigned to the Desktop, as well as the full Contact Management and the diary system.

Imprint Warehouse/Tracking system

The Imprint Warehouse/Tracking system allows sites to be configured into identifiable areas and to track movement and current position of stock, finished stock, work-in-progress, e.g. sections, direct mail items, etc. within those areas.

The system which can handle multiple sites, can be configured site to site in a variety of ways, from very simple areas, white paper warehouse, machine room, despatch, etc. to very detailed layouts, warehouse, area, bay, rack, shelf, etc.

It can operate using fixed Shop Floor Data stations, or by mobile hand-held wireless palm computers.

Bar-coded pallet /box labels are produced by the system including Shop Floor Data Capture station, if the item does not already have one. All an operator has to do is shoot the barcode on the pallet or box, and shoot the barcode on the area wall or shelf. The position of the item is then logged back to the main system.

An enquiry window allows users to locate items very quickly by a range of criteria: stock code, job number, section, picking-note for Finished Stock, etc.

Finished Stock

The primary function of Finished Stock Control is to manage all printed stock and consignment stock held either on behalf of customers or for direct re-sale. This program is so closely integrated with all Works Instructions, Delivery Notes and Invoicing that it provides a fast, seamless Stock movement system greatly reducing the opportunity for human error.

All the features of Raw Materials Stock also apply to this program; first-in-first-out full audit trail; batch control and traceability; the Imprint sort-filter-find engine and full integration with Report and Document Generators.

Finished Stock call-offs can be received and entered either manually or through edi and web to print orders to generate picking notes. These picking notes may be viewed and completed electronically through Imprint’s Warehouse module.

Production Control

Imprint’s production control actually looks and feels like a traditional production board and is very easy to use. It is a multi-user system, so move an item on one screen and it moves on the others. It can work standalone or live to the rest of the system by using our Shop Floor Data Capture and SentinelNet Machine Monitoring.

A time indicator moves across the T-cards as the job progresses. The display moves with time, so users can realistically drive a large wall mounted plasma screen.

Imprint's production control also has a clever way of handling short run jobs, usually a shortcoming with old style chart systems.

production control can also handle multiple sites, a wide variety of plant, shift and overtime patterns, schedule multiple component and sections and can handle large amounts of digital jobs as easily as conventional litho.

Shop Floor Data Capture

Shop Floor Data Capture offers more individual and immediate advantages, in one hit, than any other. It should no longer be regarded as an option but as an essential part of a fast moving, accurate and effective Management Information System.

Operatives no longer use their time struggling to complete a manual time sheet each day.
Accuracy of the data captured exceeds anything available from manual time sheets.
No office time is wasted each day keying in the hand written time sheets.
Live viewing on screen of the current position of every job, of every collection centre and of every operative (updating every 11 seconds). Particularly useful to Production Controllers.
Environmentally protected, diskless, PC’s are used as terminals.With a full-screen colour monitor and a choice of input devices; Keyboards, Barcode readers, Pressure pads, or Touch screens. All data is captured live to the central file server so that an individual terminal can be turned off, or temporarily used for other purposes without any loss.

Full screen monitors allows for far better error checking of the input; permits viewing of the Works Instructions and allows alterations to be flagged direct to operators.

The Production Controller can use any terminal to gain access to the Planning Board or any other part of the system (via his password): and does not have to return to the office to find the next job due on press and whether the paper is ready.

SentinelNet machine monitoring

The Imprint SentinelNet is a live, high performance, intelligent monitoring system that supplies real time data and costs for all presses and post press equipment where acurate monitoring of time and materials is required.

SentinelNet continuously monitors performance, automatically identifies standing time from running time, counts good and waste copies and maintains performance against a full range of Operation Codes and compares all this information to the targets set by Estimating via the Works Instructions.

SentinelNet has an automatic understanding of what is make-ready, what is running, what is an unexpected stoppage and downtime etc. The information is also live to the Production Control Planning Board and Imprints on-line factory viewing system, showing good copy counts and projected finish times, etc. If Imprints SentinelNet is attached to further machine processes, such as folding machines and binding lines, then the waste can be tracked throughout the production cycle.

The SentinelNet system is able to monitor jobs from start to finish giving real productions times, materials used and most importantly, real costs!

Imprint SentinelNet Machine Monitoring has the effect of bringing the whole MIS system to life. Factories on weekends or 24 hour shifts may be monitored live from a laptop at home.
