Solana Beach, CA – August 08, 2017 MarcomCentral®, a leading provider of cloud-based print and marketing technology, has been awarded a 2017 Must See ‘Ems for their ad hoc job submission solution JobDirect® Plus. As part of PRINT 17, the largest and most innovative global exhibition of graphic communications technologies, this competition recognizes forward-thinking suppliers and manufacturers who are providing the most cutting-edge products and technologies. Evaluated and selected by a panel of anonymous industry experts, the Must See ‘Ems winners represent the most compelling advances that are revolutionizing print production workflow.
JobDirect Plus was released in April 2016 as a modern overhaul to ad hoc job submission, boasting a sleek and contemporary user interface with a responsive and touch-friendly design. The 2017 Must See ‘Ems award recognizes its newest enhancements including, 3D preview, drop down pricing, and seamless integration with the Avanti Slingshot Print MIS platform.
The new 3D engine model provides a rich, interactive user experience when creating documents and more accurately displays the final product. Features include: touch interaction, page curl simulation, binding options, document rotation, folding options, and more. Customers can visually build their products, specify an array of features and finishing options, validate with live previews, and submit online. The new integration with Avanti Slingshot bolsters overall efficiency, reduces “islands of automation,” eliminates breakpoints in the workflow, and provides real-time status for each job in process. Avanti Slingshot is the first print MIS to integrate with JobDirect Plus and manages crucial backend processes like reporting, estimating, imposition, inventory management, scheduling, shipping, billing and more into a single, streamlined workflow. Additionally, drop down pricing can now be applied to products, forcing users to select a set quantity, in turn minimizing smaller runs and paper costs to the vendor.
“The Must See ‘Ems represent the best-of products in the graphic communications industry,” said Coleman Kane, President and CEO of MarcomCentral. “We understand our customers thrive on technologies that increase automation and efficiency, expands services, controls costs, and engages their end customer in new ways. This award is an esteemed reflection of our dedication to providing innovative solutions to an evolving market.”
JobDirect Plus is one of 44 awarded Must See ‘Ems – denoted as “simply can’t miss” products – that will be exhibited on the show floor at Print 17, held September 10 – 14 at McCormick Place South in Chicago, IL. Visit MarcomCentral in booth 238 or Avanti in booth 635 to see a demo of JobDirect Plus.
