On Tuesday, May 10, 2011, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM EDST, Prism, developer of MIS/ERP software products (Prism WIN and SBE, Small Business Edition) and shop-floor productivity management tools (Prism QTMS) for the global printing and graphic arts industry, in cooperation with the Seybold Report and Gold Associates, will offer a Webinar providing an overview of the value of MIS/ERP systems.
The Seybold Report regularly offers webinars on topics related to printing and publishing technologies, covering subjects such as Web-to-print, digital printing, color management, multi-channel publishing and e-publishing software.
A company that utilizes its corporate MIS software correctly can collect a wealth of information about its performance. This webinar is for anyone interested in getting a closer look into how an MIS/ERP system can provide an excellent view into areas such as job performance, sales rep performance, and performance of the invoicing process. A presentation of typical dashboards will show how business executives gain a real-time view of a company's 'health'.
This webinar will be of particular interest to CEOs of print providers who want to see the kind of information an MIS system can offer, sales managers of print providers who want to get a better idea of the performance of their sales staff, or operations and financial managers who want to learn how an MIS system can provide better data of job costs; and deviation from estimates.
Hosted by Molly Joss, owner/publisher/editor of the Seybold Report, presenters include Ira A. Gold, president of Gold Associates, LLC (http://www.goldassociates.org/), a consulting firm that specializes in workflow automation, industry analysis and strategies. Mr. Gold will offer an overview of MIS systems. Ira believes that no print company can be successful without an online MIS integrated to ERP, digital systems, the supply chain and manufacturing -- an MIS is about communicating everything that happens in a job and analyzing it. Comparable manual systems cannot be created. Ira will discuss how these systems can work, and how to take advantage of them. For example, while many companies conduct post mortems of their failed jobs, Ira believes that a post mortem of successful jobs will reveal common traits that can be applied to future work.
Leland (Lee) Morgan, general manager of Prism North America will offer a presentation of typical MIS 'dashboards', which will show how business executives gain a real-time view of a company's health. For example, a demonstration of the sales dashboard will reveal a wealth of information concerning sales rep performance, budget and forecast revenue and job profitability. Meanwhile, an operations manager can look at job data to get a good overview of job profitability.
