FLINT, MICH. — PrintSites.com, a web-to-print eCommerce solution provider based in Flint, Mich., recently introduced Apollo, a new, high-performance platform to support the growing technological needs of the print industry. The scalable system makes it easy for corporations, small businesses, and freelancers to meet the needs of their customers.
The idea, according to Corey Puklus, VP of Sales at PrintSites, is to help customers sell more, regardless of product type or print process. The new eCommerce tool makes that easy for businesses across the country by enabling everything to be managed right from the cloud.
We listened to our customers and designed Apollo specifically to assist all of them, from major print operations to individual graphic designers, with a growing list of printing needs, , said Puklus. The scalable platform can grow and adapt alongside a business to meet the ever-changing needs of the print industry. And everything can be done from the cloud, which means it can be managed from anywhere in the country.
The platform’s broad support for print service providers, distributors, wide-format shops, enterprises, graphic designers, and franchise networks parallels the convergence that is happening in the printing industry as companies augment their core capabilities with new technologies and applications.
Apollo is PrintSites’ largest platform upgrade to date, with a keen focus on improving performance, stability, usability, and customer experience. Along with those foundational goals, Apollo was designed with many cost-effective features – making the process easy and affordable for all customers. It also includes services that support a printer’s operations above and beyond eCommerce, such as customer-relationship management, order management, dynamic project estimates and quoting. Support for custom promotional products will also be available this year.
PrintSites made significant improvements to ensure that Apollo serves ‘both sides of the fence:’ Print Service Providers (PSP) and distributors. In addition, the team added features designed to make it work equally well for the sign industry.
There are several gaps in web-to-print software across the board and Printsites’ strategic roadmap fills those gaps in the marketplace. The PrintSites vision paves the way with a specific outline of enhancements that will serve customers beyond print-commerce. Several software add-ons will both enhance the platform and serve as standalone products: multi-page product support, promotional products, EDDM, MIS integrations, accounting software integrations, proof management and more.
PrintSites’ is also working with partners from top industry hardware suppliers for direct integration and software distribution.
The growth we’ve experienced over the past year has been tremendous, and it’s largely due to our team’s constant commitment to identifying innovative solutions for our customers, said Greg Ramfos, CEO at PrintSites. We want to make it easy for individuals and businesses to meet their printing needs – and we’re proud to say that the team in Flint is making that happen.
In addition to Apollo, PrintSites’ On-Line Print (OLP) technology is utilized by more than 4,700 The UPS Stores across the country to assist customers with their printing needs. With an influx of new talent driving it forward, the company is now rolling out an improved On-Line Print (OLP) e-commerce platform with state-of-art functionality.
