At the heart of Cerm's solution are eight specific modules, each supporting a critical step in the printer's integrated workflow - from estimating over to shop floor data collection to invoicing. Connecting these modules provides the narrow web printer with a way to go beyond just MIS and enable the management and automation of their business.
The modules are part of three product categories:
Web4Labels is an all-in-one digital shopfront for online quoting and managing of assets, providing a critical online resource that lets sales people and end-customers order labels and get quotes remotely.
Insight into operations, including capacity per machine and how to optimize machines to reduce change-over times. Stock, inventory and raw material data is also available, as well as crucial details for shipping.
Cerm backoffice includes specific solutions to relieve the practical problems that come from printing a larger number of different products with smaller print runs. Produced quantities and shipping information is taken from the shopfloor to generate shipping notes and invoices.
The printer can choose the modules that meet their needs today, then add more as their business grows.
