EFI upgrades PrintSmith Vision MIS
Wednesday, January 6, 2021
EFI has launched version 5 of its PrintSmith Vision MIS, the first 100% HTML version of the software.
Replacing legacy systems based on Adobe Flash technology, EFI said the new release “delivers optimised performance and enhanced flexibility for small commercial and quick print businesses”.
Adobe Flash Player has now officially reached its end of life.
Part of the end-to-end, integrated EFI Quick Print Suite of business and production management tools, the MIS is optimised for remote management and operation, and EFI said users can benefit from a faster screen response.
Premium connectivity to EFI MarketDirect StoreFront software enables automated processing for web-to-print orders.
Other features include new bulk management tools and FastTrack HTML5 modules, which give users the flexibility to manage key tasks on the go without the need for complex cross-training.
The software also enables end-to-end job tracking and automatic notifications to reduce or eliminate the need to spend time finding job statuses and answering customer enquiries.
PrintSmith Vision user Michael Price, director of IT systems operations at AlphaGraphics in Denver, Colorado, gave a testimonial for the new version. He said: “The benefits of a single user interface on HTML are huge. I have been using the new feature set and have been impressed with the EFI development team's response to requests and suggestions.
“We are looking forward to the upgrade and are ready for the changes and feature enhancements.”
The software also features PrintSmith Vision ShipExpress, a new module that streamlines shipping and makes shipping and delivery more cost effective.
“ShipExpress’s multi-carrier support capabilities give users the ability to quickly and easily find the best rates for parcel handling, with the ability to consolidate production of packing slips and labels in one simple step,” EFI stated.
