New Software Gives Companies Control of “On-the-Fly” Printing and Binding Jobs
HUNT VALLEY, MD-August 23, 2011— WebbMason, Inc., a leading provider of on-demand marketing solutions, today introduced on-demand document printing technology that gives companies the ability to control procurement of “on-the-fly” printing while making it easy for users to design, assemble, print and custom-order business documents right from the convenience of their PCs or Macs. WebbMason docBuilder enables users to create documents online 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and have their printed orders delivered the next business day – for less than it would cost at a typical retail print chain.
Offered as part of MarketingBench™ — WebbMason’s enterprise-level print/promo procurement, management and reporting portal, the new on-demand document printing technology gives companies’ an all-in-one solution for controlling the cost and quality of their printed materials. Because WebbMason docBuilder users have access to marketing assets and customizable templates stored on their companies’ MarketingBench sites, even documents created at the last-minute can include current brand and creative content.
“WebbMason docBuilder’s easy-to-use interface allows me to build documents by applying printing and binding options in a virtual environment,” said Fiona Yung, assistant director, The College Board. “It also allows me to see the pricing for different print options and have the costs tabulated at each step along the way, so I can easily make decisions based on budget restrictions.”
As a management tool, WebbMason’s new on-demand document printing technology helps companies leverage their established procurement rules and track even on-the-fly print jobs quickly and easily. Companies can enable or disable user access, set up individual spending accounts with dollar limits, and require pre-approvals on orders.
As a productivity tool, WebbMason docBuilder’s intuitive interface makes it easy for users to upload print or graphics files, select print finishing options, view virtual proofs, and instantly order and distribute printed materials. Users can save finished projects in online catalogs and sub-catalogs to make retrieval easy. And because everything is done online, time spent transporting, waiting for, or personally reproducing documents is eliminated. Users can even collaboratively review documents like informational handouts, training manuals, sales presentations, status reports or other business documents before they’re sent to print.
“We designed docBuilder to give companies better control over their random printing costs and to give corporate marketers more control over the look and feel of the business documents that employees were creating. The side benefit is that it also helps professionals make better use of their time. Who hasn’t wasted time running to the print shop to wait for presentation materials or handouts to be made?” said Sara Post, product marketing manager for WebbMason docBuilder. “docBuilder is another example of how WebbMason continually strives to deliver better marketing automation solutions for our customers.
“WebbMason docBuilder accepts a broad variety of file formats including PDF, Microsoft Office files, JPEG, and others. Multiple files, even large 500MB files, upload in the background, allowing users to work on projects without interruption. Users can select paper type, tabs, inserts, binding, and drilling options, as well as make and review changes on the fly in WYSIWYG mode. Documents ordered by a designated time one day can arrive at their destination by 8:00 AM the next business day.
