Printer-Benchmark.com and DataMaster Labs are proud to announce a new string to our bow - a suite of tools for benchmarking the software Solutions in use in the Production Printing world.
The Solutions section of our online benchmarking suite, DMO, now has analysis of four new types of Solution: Web to Print, Variable Data, Job Submission and Workflow. DMO Production Solutions includes the printer brands' own software, as well as many others present in the Production Printing world - and it's very easy to run side-by-side comparisons identifying differences in features and functions. All four types can be laid out, so you can show a full end-to-end Production Printing workflow. Where appropriate, compatibility is displayed - not just machines, but with accounting systems and ERP too.
Web to Print covers e-commerce and internal web-based sales and print product ordering systems. DMO identifies those which can cover other products, and those which are designed to integrate in wider, cross-platform marketing business.
Variable Data apps merge data records into templates, for example for transactional printing, or for personalised marketing output.
Job Submission is a section covering pre-press and other functions common to many different print workflows and printing environments. Here our analysts look at how print job requests are received, checked and submitted.
Last but by no means least, the features and functions of Workflow Solutions intended to optimize productivity and to provide management tools can be compared side-by-side in just a couple of clicks too.
All the products covered all have a useful text with an overview, and which identifies any special features we have decided are worth highlighting.
DMO Solutions' comparison tools lets you compare all four of these types on the same page, with features to hide and reveal sub sections - and you can ouput the reports to PDf or Excel format for use elsewhere, or to send to your customer. You can show several of the products you sell, or those which are in use, and use DMO Production Solutions to model a new, end-to-end Print workflow strategy!
