Print MIS for Offset Sheet Printers

Offset print estimating requires accurate costing to ensure all elements of the process are correctly included in your quote or job. Our offset print estimating software module enables you to create as many offset presses in the system as you wish with each having its own unique cost settings. The offset press is charged on a time basis with the Print MIS software calculating the time the job will take to be printed based on the length of the print run and the weight of the paper being used. This speed and paper weight calculation is set by you to suit the way you normally run your press, and each press has its own unique settings to ensure you can price the jobs exactly as you want.

The costing for printing plates, plate make ready time, inks, and ink wash up are all set up with your specific costs providing a highly flexible solution that enables you to truly price the offset print jobs the way you want to.

In addition to the print costs all prepress and finishing costs can be created and added to the quotes or jobs using our highly flexible and easy to use additional cost functions.

Print MIS for Digital Signage and Flatbed Printing

Using the Hexicom Print MIS system you can create accurate quotes for digital signage and display work using our custom large format and flatbed quoting module. This module that was written specifically for large format printers enables you to price in either linear meters/linear feet or square meter/square foot so no matter if your substrate is a sheet or a roll you can choose the best pricing workflow each time.

The large format Print MIS software custom quoting process includes the costs for the substrates, ink, machine time, and finishing costs. You can also add costs for design, finishing, delivery, and installation.

For quick quoting of standard repeat items you can create products in the system and use these in your quotes and jobs. A standard product can be an item such as a banner stand or a perhaps a substrate such as a window vinyl where you can select the quantity and also enter the dimensions to get a price based on a square meter/foot.

Apparel and Promotional Product Reseller MIS Software

Quoting and managing promotional and apparel items is notoriously difficult and with the Hexicom MIS solution you can build an easy to use but detailed workflow to remove the complexity from the process.

Products can be set up in the catalogue either through manual entry or through imports from an Excel file. Imported products can include images, prices, decoration and set up costs, product specifications, and if you combine the warehouse management module even product stock levels.

Many of our product and apparel resellers also use our eStore online ordering and web2print software add on module which enables your customers to order products and apparel online. The customer can select the necessary decoration, view the stock levels if you are using the warehouse module, and place the order online. Once the order is placed your team can progress it through the production process either sending a purchase order to your supplier to buy the product or by drawing stock from your warehouse. Invoices can be created at any point in the workflow and can be sent to your online accounting software through the internet.

Print MIS for Print Brokers and Print Managers

The Hexicom Print MIS system enables print brokers and print managers to source the best market prices for their jobs from multiple vendors. The system has an easy-to-use quote request process that enables you to build an online quote request and send it to your suppliers who can click on a weblink and provide their price online directly into the Print MIS system. Alternatively, the vendor can email you a quote and your staff can enter it into the Print MIS system themselves.

The print broker software has a price comparison table where you can add your markup as well as price for delivery if applicable. From this screen you can select which prices to use for each quantity and you can then create an estimate or quote to your customer using these marked up prices.

When your customer gives you the go ahead you create a job from the quote in the Print MIS system and also create a purchase order which you send from the system to your supplier instructing them to produce the job. This is all done with a few mouse clicks as the details already exist in the quote so there is no duplication of data entry.

At any point in the process you can create an invoice in the system and email that to your customer for payment. If you use a cloud accounting software such as Xero or Quick Books Online you can then send your purchase order and invoice data through the internet to your accounts system, completing the workflow.
