EPMS (Enterprise Print Management Solutions), a leading print MIS developer, and SoftSolutions, an award-winning developer of DMI solutions, have added functionality to both products which will strengthen the integration of their technologies and product lines. This integration combines the planning and production monitoring power of the EPMS print management system with the ability of SoftSolutions’ Flex-RPM (Real-time Production Management) product to capture equipment performance metrics and data in real time on the shop floor.
When used in conjunction with each other, Enterprise and Flex-RPM provide the following benefits:
Real-time production data from the shop floor provides the ability to respond immediately to problems, thereby reducing downtime and material waste.
Comprehensive Job Costing reports and accurate data collection improve the ability to analyze production Key Performance Indicators in real time.
Job View functionality from both products provides real time visibility across all product lines.
“Our clients need an easy to install, accurate and affordable DMI system that will help them create and hit production targets, and obtain accurate real time data collection information from shop floor equipment. Our larger clients have benefited from this integration because it removes the margin for error that comes with manual intervention in the data collection process. SoftSolutions not only provides products that meet the needs of our clients, but they also practice the kind of client service and support that aligns with our corporate philosophy. We are extremely pleased to have the continued opportunity to work with them,” said Craig Andersen, Executive VP of EPMS.
“SoftSolutions is pleased partner with an industry leader such as EPMS. Our mutual goal is to help customers gain easier access to the trustworthy business metrics they need to drive bottom line results. EPMS has a long history of helping printers solve their MIS challenges in a straightforward and highly cost-effective manner. That aligns perfectly with the philosophy at SoftSolutions. We also appreciate the personal touch and strong focus on customer service that EPMS offers the print sector. I am excited about the opportunities we will have to help more printers with their need for better integration to drive down costs and win more orders in this highly competitive market.”
