Avanti Systems, best known for their modular Print Management Information System (Print MIS), has more than 20 years in the industry of providing business management solutions. They have developed eAcess as an addition to their print solutions suite.  eAcess is a web to print system that primarily provides printers with a portal where print order transactions can be facilitated online.

The eAcess web to print system has basic e-commerce functionality like shopping cart and online catalog interface.  As is though, it doesn’t allow credit card payment options.  To enable this, eAcess has to be integrated with Avanti’s Web Payment module. For variable data printing, eAccess allows minimal personalization through template forms of products like business cards and stationery. Personalized print items can be verified by customers through the soft-proofing module.

eAccess web-to-print can be fully integrated with Avanti’s Print MIS and all of its modules can be customized and scaled depending on the needs of a client. Possibly, a contract price for the web to print solution is determined only after system customization requirements have been completely laid down.  Avanti offers onsite training and documentation based on a client’s tailored eAccess system.

Avanti eAcess Web to Print modules:

1. Fulfillment/Online Catalog – This is the e-commerce module of eAccess. It is a customizable fulfillment catalog where print products can be displayed. The module allows keeping track of inventory and has a back order function that works when there are inventory shortages.

2. RFQ – The Request For Quotation module of eAccess or RFQ, provides customers with an online form where they can instantly get the cost of a print job order.

3. Job Submission –  eAccess has an interface where print job orders can be submitted and files with artwork can be uploaded. Received orders are acknowledged, and order tracking numbers are sent  through emails.

4. Order Approval –   Multi-level approval structure  is set through this module.  Personnel assigned to approve print orders are notified via email once a print job is submitted.  Since the print budget limits are defined, an approver can immediately see if a job order should be given a go signal or cancelled.

6. Soft Proofing – Customers can check personalized print orders through this module. The print job files are then converted to PDF. Time of approval of proofs are noted on the files.
