Aleyant Systems Shows Technology Demo of Print Job Manager

Aleyant Systems, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today 
announced that it is developing a new print job management solution. Aleyant Print Job Manager, an entry level cloud-based print job management 
solution, will be shown as a technology demonstration at Graph Expo, scheduled for September 28 through October 1 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“2014 has been a busy year at Aleyant,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant Systems. “We’ve added numerous new capabilities and integrations to 
make Pressero even more valuable to customers. We have expanded our geographic footprint to Europe and Latin America through our recent deal 
with Spanish reseller Datafont.  Now we have turned our attention to offering a solution for which we have gotten many, many requests—an entry-level, 
easy-to-use and affordable print job management solution. We are looking forward to receiving feedback on this new offering from Graph Expo visitors.”

Salzman adds, “My anecdotal experience is that only about a third of the printing companies in North America have fully-implemented the various types of 
print job management solutions available in the market.  Some companies simply don’t want to or can’t make the necessary investments in 
conventional systems, or the project becomes much more complex than was promised by the vendor. Worst case, an expensive investment just becomes 
shelf-ware.  We wanted to offer something different based on customer requirements and new technology that will bring the basic benefits of 
streamlined management of work flowing through the shop to printing companies of any size without a great deal of complexity or expense.”

Aleyant Print Job Manager is designed to do just that. It includes the basic modules that most print businesses want in a job management solution: a fast 
means of generating market-driven pricing, job management, inventory control, planning and estimating. In line with Aleyant’s open systems approach, 
Print Job Manager is cloud based, has an open API, and uses responsive design for a mobile-first approach. Salzman explains, “A cloud-based software 
as a service (SaaS) solution means companies can take advantage of this offering on a ‘pay as you go’ basis without a large up-front investment.  It also 
means that we can rapidly deliver enhancements to the product as they are developed, reducing time to market. And finally, of course, a mobile-first 
design is critical in times when you never know how and when and from what platform people will need to access information and accomplish tasks.  

Increasingly, even in the production environment, tablets are being used to give workers untethered access to production processes and even to 
manage processes across multiple locations from a single view. This improves productivity and gives the business better access to real-time information 
for fact-based decision making. It also means that sales people in the field can access the solution from a tablet or smart-phone, making it fast and 
easy to provide customers with estimates, job status and more.”

Aleyant Print Job Manager will come preloaded with lots of standard information and is so simple to use that a company can literally be up and running in a 
very short period of time, with the ability to continue refining the system over time to deliver the most possible value to the business.

“We are strong believers in the importance of a print business having a print job management system in place that can streamline operations and deliver 
real-time business and production data,” Salzman says. With digital workflows and the more process-oriented approach to printing that is becoming 
common today, there is a lot less mystery in print production than perhaps there was in the past. Print Job Manager is the embodiment of taking that 
mystery out of running the business and putting efficient job management within reach of any printing company with minimal investment and minimal 
ongoing costs.”

Salzman continues, “We sincerely hope that Print Job Manager will encourage more printing operations to take control of job management in a new and 
different way. We also believe that once they have seen the value of doing so, many will quickly outgrow this solution as they more rapidly implement 
the modern business practices it enables. With that in mind, we are working closely with our Print MIS partners to ensure that all of the data collected 
by Print Job Manager can be seamlessly migrated to a more robust print MIS solution. This is the best of all worlds—fast, easy and affordable 
implementation of job management and the ability to painlessly migrate upstream when the time is right without the need to re key data.”

Out of the box, Print Job Manager will be integrated with Aleyant’s web-to-print solution, Pressero, for an affordable end-to-end solution.

Aleyant Systems Unveils Real-Time Pricing Integration

Aleyant Systems, an innovative leader in providing robust web-to-print software solutions to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, 
today announced that it has completed integration with Australia-based M-Power Software, a fully featured Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) program 
that handles all business activities for manufacturers of all types, from the first client contact through to invoicing. 

“We have several customers in Australia who also use Aleyant’s Pressero online storefront solution,” said Nigel Davies, founder of M-Power Software. “At 
their request, we have worked with Aleyant to create a seamless integration that allows up-to-date pricing information to flow directly from the M-Power 
ERP to Pressero, ensuring that customers see accurate pricing prior to executing an order and that pricing information only needs to be entered once.  
While Pressero was originally designed to primarily serve the printing industry, we have found application for the storefront integration in other 
manufacturing verticals as well.”

While many specialized software solutions allow one-way integration, the two-way integration that Pressero has achieved is unique, allowing end users to 
enjoy the best features of two systems without compromise. This is especially important in the area of pricing and quoting.

Davies points out that in many manufacturing operations, both within and outside of the printing industry, pricing and quoting processes can be quite 
complex and prone to error, especially when multiple systems are involved. “A company may have 3,000 different products,” he says, “and various 
pricing levels dependent upon customer relationships, quantities ordered and more. In the past, changing pricing or adding new items required entries to 
multiple systems, which can be quite time consuming. With this Pressero integration, it is exponentially faster for companies to keep products and pricing in 
sync and to add new products to the system. It helps that Pressero has one of the best pricing engines I have ever seen.”

M-Power has clients in the medical device, fertilizer, oil refining, and agriculture industries, in addition to printing companies. “This integration opens 
up tremendous opportunities for us and for Pressero in Australia,” Davies states. “In the world of MIS, we find that 95% of business process is the same 
across industries and only 5% usually needs to be customized, whether the customer is developing fertilizer recipes or creating signs or other printed 
products. We are finding this to be true of Pressero storefronts as well.”

Davies has already had good experiences both inside and outside the printing industry, “We have a multinational agricultural client,” he explains, “that 
had secured product sales online via Pressero within a week of installation. Pressero is universal, as are the principals of quoting and pricing. We also 
like the fact that Pressero makes it easy for customers to design online in alignment with corporate style guides. This is a distinctive capability that we 
are sure many of our customers will want to take advantage of.”

Aleyant Systems Partners with Ultimate Technographics to Add Automated Imposition

Aleyant Systems, an innovative leader in providing robust web-to-print software solutions to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, 
today announced that it has partnered with Montreal-based Ultimate Technographics to integrate the company’s best value imposition solution, 
Impostrip OnDemand, with Aleyant’s Pressero online storefront. Registration for a free webinar demonstrating this unique and efficient integration, 
which is scheduled for November 15 from 11 AM – 12 PM CST, can be found at http://www.pressero.com/page/web-to-print-software-webinars-and-training.

“We are pleased to be working with Ultimate Technographics to bring this added capability to our users,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant Systems. 
“Our Automated Workflow Integrator creates XML that is automatically placed with print-ready files in Impostrip OnDemand hot folders. The integration 
also enables the placement of Pressero bar codes on the imposed sheet for easy scanning to update job status in Pressero.  Automating imposition adds 
a new dimension of productivity for Pressero users.”

Aleyant’s eDocBuilder variable data solution and Pressero online storefront were recipients of the prestigious Printing Industries of America 2013 
InterTech Technology™ award in consideration of their openness and ease of integration with third-party systems such as Impostrip.

“Imposition automation at Ultimate means a lights out, hands free, truly reliable process to automate incoming jobs from Pressero for print production,” 
added Julie Watson, Vice President of Strategic Marketing for Ultimate Technographics. “Once dynamic Hot Folders are set up, Impostrip OnDemand 
runs behind the scenes, automatically generating the imposed PDF files ready for print with all the appropriate marks and adjustments, including 
automatic creep based on paper thickness, gutters, and margins. Aleyant has been great to work with as we developed this important integrated 
solution.”

Impostrip OnDemand offers print service providers the ability to expand their business with web-to-print, and automate this process without the need 
for expensive programming or integration services.

Pressero from Aleyant Systems is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B and B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be 
customized to individual client needs. Because it is delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS), it has a pay-as-you-go model that involves limited 
up-front costs. 

Pressero includes eDocBuilder, a web-based variable data publishing and online design solution. eDocBuilder is built specifically to easily integrate into 
web-to-print e-commerce, accounting, and MIS solutions. eDocBuilder runs on tablets, laptops and desktops. Aleyant has engaged with a growing 
number of partners who have incorporated eDocBuilder and/or the Pressero web-to-print storefront system into their solutions.

Aleyant Systems Brings Flexible Web-to-Print Solutions to SGIA

Aleyant Systems, an innovative leader in providing robust, web-to-print software solutions to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, 
today announced that it will be exhibiting at the SGIA Expo, the best venue for sign and display graphics operations to experience new and innovative 
solutions. Aleyant will be located in Booth #667 at the show, which is scheduled for October 23-25 in Orlando, Florida.

“We were at last year’s SGIA Expo as an attendee and appreciated the level of energy, innovation and enthusiasm that this show embodies,” said 
Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant Systems. “Since that time, we have made significant updates to both our eDocBuilder online designer software and 
our Pressero web-to-print e-commerce storefront system to accommodate the needs of the wide format market. We believe the time is now for sign and 
display graphics operations to ensure that they have an effective, customer-facing web presence and as much automation in their workflow as is practical, 
and we will be delighted to demonstrate to show attendees what we can offer in that regard.”

Aleyant's eDocBuilder and Pressero software were recipients of the prestigious Printing Industries of America 2013 InterTech™ Technology award 
in consideration of their openness and ease of integration with third-party systems.

Pressero from Aleyant Systems is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B and B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be 
customized to individual client needs. Because it is delivered as Software as a Service (SaaS), it has a pay-as-you-go model that involves limited up-front 
costs. 

Pressero includes eDocBuilder, a web-based variable data publishing and online design solution. eDocBuilder is built specifically to easily integrate into 
web-to-print e-commerce systems, accounting, and MIS solutions. eDocBuilder runs on tablets, laptops and desktops. Aleyant has engaged with a 
growing number of partners who have incorporated eDocBuilder and/or the Pressero web-to-print storefront system into their solutions. 

ErgoSoft integration with Aleyant solutions will also be shown in ErgoSoft Booth #3214. Aleyant partners such as ErgoSoft have taken advantage of 
Aleyant's Pressero Automated Workflow Integrator to easily integrate their solutions with eDocBuilder and Pressero and to add automation that takes 
touches out of the order-entry-to-production workflow. With this integration, an order submitted through Pressero can be automatically dropped into an 
ErgoSoft workflow. CRC Information Systems (Booth #2213) and EPMS (Booth #767) are other Aleyant partners exhibiting at the show.

“As we have been working to enhance our web-to-print solutions for the wide format market and have begun installing systems in these businesses,” 
added Salzman, “we have found a great need in the industry for this type of automated job submission and workflow integration.”
