Quote & Print takes it around Australia

All of the readers of Print 21 will know about all the virtues of the Quote & Print Software as a business management solution, both in house and business-to-business. But any system is only as good as the people that are behind it, both at the coalface and behind the scenes.

Quote & Print is sold and supported by a nationwide distributor network, which collectively can supply its customers with well over one hundred years of knowledge and experience from within the printing industry.

I have always found it interesting that no matter how many printers I visit, they all seem to have the same types of problems and issues, with which they are trying to find their own unique solutions. Because Quote & Print supplies software to such a large cross section of the printing industry through its dealer network, it is perfectly positioned to provide the solutions without requiring the printer to go through the expense and inconvenience of developing their own – because they believe that the problem is a unique one.

For example, I was at a printing company the other day and one of the sales reps was complaining to the production manager. “We have printed this job 3 or 4 times before, why do we always get the ink colour wrong!” he said.

The production manager’s response was, “The correct ink colour was recorded on the very first job bag and no one checked and they just grabbed the last job bag for the reprint.”

Of course, if you combine the Quote & Print software with the knowledge of our training teams, we can easily demonstrate how this can be avoided to ensure that it never happens in the future. The above is a very simple example, but there are others that are far more complex.

My advice for anyone planning to purchase management software, or for users experiencing problems within their business, then contact your Quote & Print distributor and run it past them. They may not be able to give you an instant solution, but they can tap into the nationwide network from which there is sure to be an answer. Remember, it is not the software on its own that makes a great system – it is the people driving it and behind the scenes.
