Behind Soltect’s new “affordable and intuitive” cloud-based client interface is the company’s suite of software products, including Enfocus Switch for workflow automation and PitStop PDF pre-flight software.
“As equipment and systems take center stage at PacPrint, System Architect Soltect encourages attendees to seize the opportunity to ‘think big’ and design the kind of seamless and efficient workflow that encompasses all the benefits of our digital age and will ensure they survive, and thrive, into the future,” said Visual Connections, organizer of PacPrint.
|“Many workflows are assembled
room by room”:
“We live in a different world today than a decade ago,” said Yves Roussange, founder and CEO of Sydney-based software firm Soltect. “For companies to follow this transformation, they must not only continue to invest in equipment and systems, but also foster a whole new way of thinking about their workflow and their business – to completely change their business DNA, if you prefer.
“What companies need to think about – particularly if they are considering new investments, but also if they are simply looking to maximize the value of their current investments – is how much they are losing in terms of time and efficiency by not designing not the right enterprise architecture…and how much it’s already costing their business, every day.”
Many workflows are put together piece by piece as businesses grow, according to Roussange. “But like a puzzle, if you don’t take the time to step back and identify the missing pieces, and work to fill in the gaps and connect each piece to the next, you can’t fully enjoy the full picture.”
In addition to allowing companies to fix more easily identifiable interruptions and workflow bottlenecks, Soltect finds that many companies have more subtle and fundamental workflow interruptions and disconnects, and far too many points of contact in their production process.
“This was highlighted during the pandemic, when staff absences led to production delays and even closures for some businesses,” Roussange said. “For our customers who worked with us to increase automation, however, the benefits of reduced reliance on manual processing were immediately apparent. This allowed them to minimize disruption and keep the presses running.
Soltect will launch its new cloud-based customer interface to PacPrint, which Roussange says is simple, affordable and intuitive, helping to educate customers and giving them the tools they need to take full advantage of automation. With the recent federal budget providing significant incentives for this type of investment — companies can claim 120% of their monthly investment for qualifying cloud computing solutions — Roussange says it’s a “no-brainer.”
Behind the new client interface is Soltect’s suite of software products, including Enfocus Switch for workflow automation, PitStop PDF pre-flight software and ConnectALL advanced PDF pre-flight delivery tool, as well as Callas PDF pre-flight and templating solutions, Impostrip Ultimate Imposition and Finishing Automation Solution and SwitchBOX-Approvalintu integrated web-based job approval system.
“Visitors will be able to tell us about all of these things at PacPrint,” Roussange said, “but the real value we can bring to your business is providing the intelligence behind these solutions – that’s the ‘missing piece of the puzzle’. . ‘
“We can step in, identify where the problems are and provide business owners with an honest assessment of how the business is doing and what needs to change. The report may be confrontational, but brutal honesty is required – I sincerely believe that we don’t have time to filter the information to make it more palatable. Businesses need to act quickly, not only to stay ahead of the game, but also to avoid falling behind competitors quickly. »
Soltect works with some of the industry’s leading print service providers and, while details are commercially trusted, Roussange says the return on investment has been well demonstrated.
“Not only can any investment in developing your enterprise architecture be recouped quickly, but it pays significant long-term dividends in terms of long-term scalability and profitability; it’s basically about designing your business to be successful.
Soltect will be on stand B86 at PacPrint, which will co-locate with Visual Impact Melbourne and Label & Packaging Expo at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center from June 28 to July 1 this year.
