The Features

Essentials for an Enterprise-Class Solution

Scalability

Take advantage of the NowCloud. Cloud-based computing and new technologies like virtualization can increase your load per server. Our state-of-the-art NowCloud processing and storage network can support large numbers of everything through your solution.

Adjust for your specific needs. Economically scale your solution where you need it based on data. For example, if your variable-data printing business is growing faster than your ad hoc document printing, surgically scale just the variable-data processing power.

Template customer sites. Streamline the process and get new customers online quickly by cloning accounts. The standard license includes unlimited configurable sites, unlimited system users and unlimited groups to organize your users.

Share products. Offer all of your customers the same products without reconfiguring them. NowPrint shared groups lets you designate a group of products to be shared across customers. This allows you to edit once and publish to many.

Integration

Print-enabled e-commerce typically needs to sit alongside standard e-commerce, or at least deeply integrate into existing systems. NowPrint can be componentized and embedded into your current business process. Buyers benefit by having a single transaction, and providers benefit from a single backend financial system.

With answers to the following questions, we can take on large-scale, complex integration projects.

  • What do customers want to exchange (data)?
  • When do they want to do the exchange?
  • What is the agreed-upon, shared language between systems?

Plug-In Approach

NowPrint can be plugged into another process and used as a component. Because we may not do every step of the solution, we can create a standard for interacting with the system that can be replicated for every derivation. This decreases custom code and the associated maintenance, and it makes it easy to change from one version to the next.

Componentization

Having a solution made up of components makes integration possible. NowPrint lets you use your existing systems in areas where it makes sense and the relevant parts of its platform to meet specific unmet business needs.

  • Store data in just one place. Having the same information in two places causes data synchronization challenges for the life of the integration.
  • Determine an authoritative upfront system for the data and what will “subscribe” to that authority for updates.

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
  • Transaction By User
  • Bill of Materials
  • Document Type
  • Inventory on Hand
  • Inventory Total Usage
