Aleyant, a provider of software services to the graphic communications industry, has partnered with Ultimate TechnoGraphics to integrate Aleyant’s full suite of order entry and production automation solutions with Impostrip Automation from Ultimate TechnoGraphics to create the Automation Hub.
The combination of these award-winning solutions in the Automation Hub creates a complete easily customizable automated workflow from order entry through production for the sign and display graphics and textile industries. The two companies will be demonstrating this unique ecosystem at SGIA, scheduled for October 10-12 in New Orleans. Both will be located in Booth 2719 at the show.
“Combining the Aleyant suite of productivity solutions with Ultimate TechnoGraphics Impostrip Automation delivers one of the most affordable and easy-to-use fully automated solutions for the sign & display graphics and textile markets,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant. “It provides companies with a fully automated solution from the online Pressero storefront for order entry, to online design with eDocBuilder, to estimating with PrintJobManager and prepress automation with tFLOW, and finally, automated imposition for output. We are looking forward to discussing the opportunities this presents with attendees at SGIA, learning more about their businesses and helping them find ways to make themselves more efficient and profitable.”
By implementing Aleyant and Ultimate TechnoGraphics’ Automation Hub, organizations can benefit from:
- Improved profitability
- Fewer errors with less rework and waste
- Fewer manual touches and less labor
- Faster cycle times with the ability to more effectively handle today’s demanding market requirements
Here’s How it Works
With PrintJobManager, Aleyant’s estimating, pricing and production management solution, a print service provider can create their selling price from material, equipment and labor costs. This enables pricing controlled in ONE location to provide instant pricing for orders whether through an online store or via mobile device. Pricing information is then pushed automatically to Pressero, Aleyant’s private B2B and public B2C online storefront solution, which instantly updates pricing for your storefront items. One benefit here is when there is a price change for raw material, labor or equipment in PrintJobManager, this change will automatically update within your Pressero storefronts in real- time.
Also when an order is placed in Pressero, it’s automatically pushed into PrintJobManager, helping you manage your job production, including time-tracking capabilities. Within Pressero, you can sell standard or off-the-shelf items, custom items via either the built-in eDocBuilder online design templates or customer supplied artwork. Fulfilling orders from finished goods including tracking inventory levels is also supported. tFLOW, Aleyant’s automated prepress, approval and collaboration workflow solution,
can auto-receive files via Pressero. Imagine having jobs automatically checked and fixed as
they arrive instead of CSRs chasing customers for approvals and files. tFlOW automatically fixes files and sends proof files to your clients for approval. After approval, the print-ready production files are auto-sent to production queues including RIPs; specific departments; 3rd party imposition or cutters.
Adding Impostrip Automation from Ultimate TechnoGraphics to the mix enables an additional layer of automation, automatically imposing and nesting including dynamic marks, barcodes and generating the cut file for finishing. Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator (AWI) uses a rules-based approach to automate connections between Aleyant’s solutions and Ultimate Technographics Impostrip Automation.
