The Features

Everything Your In-Plant Needs to Succeed

Convenient Catalog

Store documents or non-print inventory in a Catalog that users can access based on rights and roles or segmented for a particular company or department. Each item has a thumbnail image and unique metadata associated with it (price, SKU, name, etc.). In addition to ordering printed documents, users can download any non-warehouse item as a PDF.

Automated Approvals

You can easily add an approval step before order submission. Approvals are configurable and can be automatic for all users in a Group, or set to trigger when the order exceeds a particular threshold or dollar amount.

Multiple Print Centers

Your print centers can be at one company or at a combination of your facilities and your partners’ locations. With the NowCloud network, users access your solution from anywhere via the web and it’s scalable, allowing you to add other products, services and fulfillment partners.

Item/Component-Level Costs and Pricing

Set up your web-to-print commerce system with detailed costs and pricing — even at the item/component level. Components might include paper, impressions, finishing options, etc. Assign costs as well as per-component prices, and run cost-based calculation reports to track profitability on an order-by-order basis.

Flexible Pricing Configuration

You can assign discounts, establish bulk pricing and set other pricing rules with our flexible pricing options. Pricing configurations can define tiered-unit price per quantity, set price per item ordered and total a group of individual items to create a new item with multiple components.

Access to Native Files

When a user uploads a file, NowPrint automatically converts it into a print-ready PDF file. Your staff has access to both the print-ready file and the native file in the print production queue, in case the client requests a change that requires the raw file.

Variable-Data Printing (VDP)

Help your users take advantage of 1:1 marketing benefits by offering product personalization online. Data collection is controlled with a configurable form builder. Choose from Standard VDP capabilities that leverage the basic functionality of InDesign, Word and Publisher or Advanced VDP for more complex XMPie functionality.

Intelligent Reporting

Automate data gathering and improve print center analytics with insightful reports. Microsoft® SQL Server® Reporting Services track data and keep it inside NowPrint. Reports can be generated in a variety of formats including: HTML 4.0 and 3.2, MHTML, XML, CSV, Excel, Image, PDF and RGDI. NowPrint reports include:

  • Transaction Report
  • Impressions by Print Center Usage
  • Vendor Report

  • Bill of Materials
  • Document Type
  • Inventory on Hand
