Choosing the right Web-to-Print; a simple story

The benefits to an organisation of implementing a simple and structured print production workflow are numerous. Choose the right Web-to-Print solution and the decision can transform your print room and business.


Once upon a time

Unsure of how a document should be submitted, print room customers send their request via email, USB or hard copy with instructions that are often confused, inconsistent or require clarity. Other potential customers, unclear of the internal services on offer, print to inappropriate devices or take their work to external printers.


The road to be travelled

The solution is to provide users with an easy and clear process for ordering print. Ensure that this process automatically saves the document in the correct format for the print room, captures all the relevant information and offers a way for customers to check the status of their work.


The magic ingredient

The key to success? Making sure the software is easy to use means that the print room is the only obvious choice for potential users. Keep your service focused. There are many complex and potentially expensive workflows that can lead you down a false road. We believe it is essential to nail the basics! Skyline Web-to-Print software has been designed to be quick to implement and to be up and running with minimum fuss; managing core workflow, daily activities and delivering real value.


A happy ending

Print Room users can access your Skyline service from their desktop 24/7. The familiar shopping cart process guides them through your ordering process. They can save and share documents in private and public online libraries and check their orders instantaneously on the ‘my orders’ screen.


The print room can increase work volume whilst saving precious time and money. Their Skyline Storefront can be branded and used to showcase their increasingly extensive range of products and services. Communication with their customers has never been better.


The next chapter?

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, it doesn’t mean basic. Skyline has a non-propriety, open systems architecture. It supports all popular industry printers, can be linked to as many output devices as required and integrated with internal databases & systems.
