Advancements in West AlabamaNovember 1, 2013
“If you do wide-format, you’ve got to be able to laminate wide-format,” explains Robinson.
The shop’s Epson 9890 has been very busy lately printing posters and other items, he says, and the laminator protects those prints for prolonged outdoor use.
“Once word got around that we can do wide-format, everybody’s coming at us,” he says. “It sold itself.”
Soon to be implemented at the in-plant is Print Shop Pro Lite, from edu Business Solutions. Robinson talked with other users of the MIS and went through an online demonstration. He was very impressed, and felt the software was geared toward smaller shops like his. The in-plant elected to add the LDAP module, which allows customers to log in using their UWA network credentials; the Color Themes module, which allows the shop’s website to be configured with UWA colors and fonts; and the Document Converter module, which converts common file types to PDF during the customer’s order process.
“It’s going to reduce our billing time from about six hours to five minutes,” Robinson observes.
