Internet application - P/3 - that automates the ordering and production
management of CORPORATE business cards, a notoriously difficult and
unprofitable product for commercial printers.
The system produces substantial cost savings and opens opportunities
for pursuing new accounts by using business cards as lead-in product.
The application is Internet/Web based and enables on-line
- card template(s) layout
- enforcement of corporate identiy rules
- enforcement of corporate business rules (e.g., approval routings)
- order management
- imposition management
- production scheduling
- order matching and billing
for CORPORATE business cards (e.g., Fortune 1000).
We license the product to commercial printers who make it available as
a service to corporate customers. In addition to a small set-up fee,
pay for the system on a per transaction (i.e., confirmed order) basis.
Printers and their customers access the system through a standard
web browser without the need to know, or invest in, additional software,
hardware or information systems staff. A dial-up connection to the
Internet is sufficient to use both the ordering and production parts of
P/3 system is in commercial use by several major corporations today.
