Heidelberg to Debut New MIS at Graph Expo
Heidelberg plans to preview its Prinect Business Manager, described as the company’s new Management Information System (MIS), at Graph Expo, being held this September in Chicago.
Heidelberg’s Prinect Business Manager system employs what the company calls an intuitive interface to guide users through steps for costing and to ensure their equipment is running at full capacity, while also providing an overview of materials they have in stock.
Based on existing scheduling systems, Prinect Business Manager is designed to allow a printer to pick the most cost-effective and profitable press, and indicate where it will cost the least to manufacture a job, based on the user’s equipment mix and the specifications of the job.
This includes the ability to calculate for toner-based presses for identifying the break point between offset- and toner-based production.
Prinect Business Manager is scalable from single-seat job estimating up to multiple-user integration with estimating, production, and materials management, as well as accounting, logistics and delivery.
