Expanded Ordering and Submission CapabilitiesThe new version of PRISMAaccess now facilitates the ordering of non-printed inventory items such as pens, notebooks, memory sticks and calculators. To streamline the opening and sending of large print files, clients can now select and order reprints from a library of pre-approved documents such as existing training manuals and corporate brochures. As these documents can be quite large, PRISMAaccess 5.4 allows users to preview a portion of the document, without having to download it, to determine whether it is the correct document. The new PRISMAaccess solution also introduces the ability for users to order documents stored in the cloud. With existing support for Dropbox TM, users have the ability to easily order documents stored in one of today’s most popular cloud applications. Accept Direct Payments Previous versions of PRISMAaccess offered extended accounting functions and customized reports to help allocate costs and create invoices. PRISMAaccess 5.4 now also includes the ability for users to pay for orders via PayPal TM. When ordering a product for which the price is determined, the job submitter will be offered the option to pay for their order during the submission process. “Far too many companies and users still rely on archaic methods of submitting print jobs to their production departments and print providers, such as using email or memory sticks to transfer the documents and using email to discuss job specifications, receive estimates and preview and approve jobs,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “With the introduction of PRISMAaccess 5.4, Canon is extending our support for electronic job submission helping our customers streamline workflow and embracing a more efficient and cost-effective way to manage production print jobs within their organizations.” PRISMAaccess is just one offering within the Océ PRISMA family of solutions that, together, streamline print production workflow from job submission through production. It is compatible with any PDF-based printer, such as Canon’s imagePRESS and varioPRINT cut sheet digital presses.
PRISMAaccess 5.4 is currently available for immediate purchase and as a free upgrade from PRISMAaccess v5 for customers with existing software maintenance agreements.
