New release enables more intelligent production planning
November 6, 2018. Wheaton IL. Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry, today announced the availability of a new version of its industry-leading production tool, PrintJobManager. With Version 2.0, available now, the company introduces Scheduling Simplified to enable print shops of all sizes to engage in more intelligent production planning.
“We continue to add functionality to PrintJobManager based on customer feedback and our own assessment of industry trends,” says Trent Foreman, Aleyant’s PrintJobManager Product Manager. “Customers will now be able to view information at the job, department or resource level as a basis for more intelligent production planning. Each view shows details about each job, including due date, estimated production time, customer information and more. Jobs can be sorted based on priority and other criteria. This level of easily accessible information allows for a more efficient production process that can deliver immediate bottomline results.”
In addition to Scheduling Simplified, Version 2.0 of PrintJobManager also features an additional integration point with Aleyant’s award-winning Pressero Web2Print solution. “The forms and product forms inside of Pressero can now be mapped to a custom field in PrintJobManager,” Foreman explains. “This can be useful to automatically capture additional information such as department code, billing code or another piece of metadata that is unique to a specific customer. It allows the information to be visible on both the Job Ticket and the Job List view.”
Customers can also now designate custom fields as internal or external when sending out an estimate, allowing better control of information that is exposed to the customer.
“We are very excited about the new capabilities this release brings,” Foreman concludes. “But of course, we are not stopping there. We have additional features and enhancements in progress, and we are always looking for feedback from customers to continue to fine tune PrintJobManager and all of the other great tools and solutions from Aleyant.”
