InkRouter Inc., a print procurement automation, presents its InkRouter xPRESS feature for print providers. The web-based client is a turnkey solution that expands the market for print providers with a unique product and who do not require a fully automated workflow.
Launched in September, InkRouter xPRESS’s dashboard allows boutique print shops and producers of specialized print products to participate in InkRouter’s expanded global network of print sellers and print providers at no cost.
“InkRouter xPress is the easiest entry to a global print network,” said Robert Godwin, director, business development, InkRouter. “All you need is a browser and you can participate as a print provider for the competitively priced products you offer.”
Developed as an easy web client, InkRouter xPRESS reduces the barrier to entry for qualifying print providers. Smaller print providers without the technical resources or high volume for particular products greatly benefit from the scheduling dashboard to receive and manage orders.
Print providers can be set up in the InkRouter network within two days. The manual dashboard system is accessible from any browser and does not require any software integration. Print providers simply need to complete credential setup and testing to begin.
Qualifying print providers are notified via email or text message when orders are placed. InkRouter xPRESS orders are manually accepted within one hour to ensure timely fulfillment. After the first hour, orders are made available to the next best match within the network.
Current participating print providers with unique products include a producer of personalized edible cookies, a dedicated booklet printer that services customers with expedited service, and a specialty tissue gift wrap printer.
