Print Flow Plus Monitor Program

The Association will launch its newest sales building/productivity program in August. The Print Flow Plus Monitor Program will address the challenges of monitoring the print flow production process.

With the continued growth of the Print Profit Center challenges occur controlling the production of print jobs. Which one is due first, which one is a rush, which is complete, which has been outsourced, which one it paid, is there a balance due? There are many factors and dynamics that play into monitoring and controlling production for multiple print jobs.

The Print Flow Plus Program will offer three solution levels to meet the needs of store owners with varying levels of print expertise as well as different levels of print monitoring needs.

  • The Core Level will provide a monitoring solution using more traditional methods like physical or paper tracking with progressive tools to improve the process.

  • The Cloud Level uses much of the information from the Core Level but utilizes cloud storage to take the monitoring process to a new level.

  • The Web Level uses cloud-based software to monitor the production process maximizing the cloud storage and a web-based process.

Utilizing The Core level production monitoring provides a paper trail print flow management process. This level relies on current tools developed by The Association; The Association Print Catalog, Graphic Design Worksheet, Print Order Form, Production Time Graphic, as well as the newest tool – The Print Flow Production Monitor.

The Print Flow Production Monitor is the key element for monitoring a print job from Graphic Design to Proof to approval to production to completion to payment. This excel tool monitors customer information and follow up. The Print Flow Production Core Level provides color coding for each phase of the print production process for easy recognition of the print jobs place in production.

Print Jackets with color coded production cards maintain all physical materials utilized in the print production. The color-coded production cards identify different stages of the production process: New Print Job, In Design Phase, Proof Process, Print Job in Progress, Rush Print Job, Waiting from Outsource to name a few.
