PrintIQ is a web-based Management Information System (MIS), easily accessed from an internet browser anywhere, anytime. Production staff can manage the factory while customers quote, order, and track all within the same application. From dedicated workflows to simplified proofing to calculators that deal with duty, freight, transfer margins, and financing costs so pricing is managed in a single system, The Cutting Edge has quickly reaped the benefits of their move to their new MIS.
The easy-to-use cloud solution effectively allowed The Cutting Edge to deal with its current challenges due to the pandemic. “With labor shortages and varying uncertain working conditions, we needed a one-stop cloud solution to keep everyone on the same page and maintain productivity. printIQ’s ability to have a live view of production, art/document storage, customer and supplier portals, and the access from anywhere did just that,” said Matthew Elliott, The Cutting Edge’s Managing Director.
But, they also quickly realized the benefits of printIQ’s quoting system. To be competitive in today’s market, companies must provide clients with quick and accurate quotes. “PrintIQ’s ability to request supplier pricing quickly and easily from within the quoting page has allowed our estimators to save time and money with a few clicks.”
Because printIQ is far more than just an MIS, the cloud-based technology is custom-built to solve its client’s unique needs. For The Cutting Edge, they needed a solution that kept them at the top of the packaging game and could adapt to any challenges they would face now or in the future. And fortunately, the partnership between printIQ and The Cutting Edge did just that. Elliott stated, “printIQ is the most adaptive print-centric tool on the market and was the only solution flexible to our needs. They have more than doubled our quoting speed, reduced our processing time, and brought our workflow up to speed. Finally, we have a solution that we can rely on now and in the future.”
