  • Anyone heard of PrintLogic or Printware? Looking for MIS Suggestions

    Small 5 person shop offering Offset, Digital, Mailing, Wide Format, Screen Printing, + Embroidery with great annual growth looking for a MIS system + B to B and B to C portals to help us hit our million dollar + sales goal in 2020 (we are close now).
    Looking at:
    Presswise
    Printsmith
    Printware
    Printlogic

    Looking for input to help make a decision.

    What do you think and why?

    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, I used PrintLogic from Oct. 2017 to Feb. 2018. After a couple of demos, decided to try it. It was great, the price was perfect for such a small shop as me (two employees) and I considered it well featured. Ultimately, went back to my old system because I didn't like how PrintLogic handled it's price calculations. For example, on a repeat order, if any specification changed, you had to start with a fresh quote or go back to the original quote which oftentimes wasn't the same as what was printed (quantity changed, stock changed, etc).

      We're just installing printsmith, but I wouldn't recommend it.

      They're only now upgrading to HTML5 and they're probably not even gonna be done in a year.
      Whole MIS has bugs, there's been multiple times when I would show bug to support, and even they couldn't comment on it, all I got was "we'll look into it".
      Even the new version, HTML5 feels clunky to work with, there's random error messages or "feature-warning" messages that EFI calls them, that you have to press "OK" everytime for no reason.
      Lots of things makes no sense, like the fact that large format printing and digital printing uses different measurement units (cm/mm and meters for large format), yet when entering default numbers for let's say bleed, it's all in one unit, therefore if entered 3 into default settings, it would be 3mm for digital printing, yet 3 meters for large format...
      Or that every time you calculate a large format job, you have to calculate cutoff on your own, system doesn't do that, kinda defeats the purpose of automatic calculations.
      The list for current jobs is uncomfortable to work with, and there's no past/completed jobs list.

      It just feels undone.

        inkmann - Be happy to help, if you want to take look. CRM - MIS and Web2Print all from one vendor for SMEs. www.accuramis.com - PrintLogic is about the cheapest thing you can buy. There is something for every type/size of business, but whatever you do checkout the supplier, checkout references, check the software meets your needs now and into the future (not just now, because it's cheap). Replacing any MIS is painful, you don;t want to have to go through it too soon.

        See your LinkedIn messages.

        Regards,
        Trevor.

        Why Would You Ever Want To Automate?
        It seems far too complex, costs money, involves a lot of people, will take time etc etc. And then you run out of excuses. Read the article.
