Maximizing the impact of a mobile sales force is critical to every printing business. EFI's (Booth 2000) Monarch Portal is an Internet-based sales tool designed to extend the power of the EFI Monarch Print MIS/ERP to remote sales personnel. The Portal includes powerful specification tools customized to meet the unique needs of the individual organization. The specification tool collects, organizes and validates the information required for accurate quotes and successful production. Each field in the specification is mapped to the Monarch estimating and planning system providing an accurate, fast quote and rapid order entry for even complex jobs. Sales and other remote team members can specify, quote, order, track, and review invoices and order history anywhere, any time.
Monarch Portal isn’t an on-line form that’s delivered to the printer for analysis and rekeying into their MIS. It’s a virtual link to the business, providing a level of speed, accuracy and visibility not available from other providers. While the salesperson of the competitor is hand carrying an RFQ back to the office, the Monarch Portal user has already submitted, validated, and delivered a quote with a level of accuracy that ensures a profitable job for the printer and hassle-free production for the print buyer.
