A great deal of industry know-how from print shops and advertising technology has gone into the development of our print shop software advanter in the print+sign edition. With a particular focus on the special requirements of large format printing (LFP) and XXL digital printing, we have developed ERP software for print shops that ensures short throughput times and high margins.

Our industry software for print shops takes many details into account as early as the order acceptance stage and during item and article entry. With advanter print+sign, print shops can transfer their quotation data directly to order processing and view current production statuses. Convenient logistics and invoicing functions of the print shop software also ensure optimized processes and a lean workflow.

Simplify costing in digital printing and large format printing (LFP)

Specific production characteristics such as formats and speeds can be stored in the print shop software for each press. The advantages of our costing software for print shops:

  • Precisely calculate material, labor and finishing costs
  • Create quotations on the basis of a stored calculation schema
  • Minimize time expenditure.

Whether XXL digital printing or large-format printing: professional print shop software and costing software must skillfully bring together employees and departments. Our software specifically for print shops forces collaboration between sales, processing and production.

As ERP software, advanter enables data that has been entered once to be made available across all departments: our specialized print shop software turns quotations into orders and transfers the order data directly to production planning. Times, square meters and quantities can be determined immediately and machine capacities checked via the print shop software.
