Optimus is launching the new Cloud Suite of Modules for the first time at Fespa Barcelona next month. The company says the new product is a complete solution or an integrated on-line trading experience.
Nicola Bisset, group managing director of Optimus says, “Optimus Cloud was borne out of extensive research and demand from different Print Sectors worldwide. We are entering a new age, whereby a seamless and intuitive approach to simplifying and automating print purchasing and having instant access to information, is increasingly being considered by Print Buyers as mandatory not optional.
“Equally Print Providers continue to look at finding solutions to assist them in cutting unnecessary costs through automation, plus finding ways of keeping customer loyalty.”
Optimus Cloud has been designed to combat issues faced by Print Providers using traditional on- line ordering tools which are largely used in isolation. Although a good experience for the buyer, the Print Provider incurs enormous hidden costs in unnecessary administration and duplication which is error prone and costly. Optimus Cloud seamlessly integrates with Optimus dash and Optimus 2020 thereby eradicating these issues, according to Optimus.
The new Cloud technology takes a holistic approach to viewing stock availability and ordering stock items, the raising of fully specified production jobs, the automated production of fast quotations and the automatic receipt of orders.
Optimus Cloud also allows customers to view previous jobs and invoices, plus the status of active jobs. According to the company, this all adds up to an automated system for the Print Provider with significantly less drain on staff resources; and for the printers’ customer, a completely transparent and fully functional system that covers every aspect of their dealings with their Print Provider.
