What really drew us to printIQ is that they look at the world slightly differently.
They don’t necessarily think that the way it’s always been done is the correct way or should even be the ‘normal’ way and that relates exactly to the way we operate. Our clients typically come to us with a concept, and we figure out how to make it work.
With printIQ we can log in anywhere in the world, track jobs online, and manage the entire project from estimating all the way through to invoicing. That kind of efficiency allows us to focus on what we do best: printing award-winning projects.

After looking for a long time at different MIS, we were fortunate to find printIQ, it ticked all the boxes and then some. We have a very demanding work flow and handle a lot of variable data printing and needed a delivery system that would allow us an audit trail. We had invested a lot of money on another system and have had also built our own. printIQ was the only system that exceeded all our requirements (and didn’t break the bank!). The after-sales implementation and support has cemented in the fact that we made the right decision to go with printIQ.

With four different workflows to manage, we had to find a system to manage all as efficiently as each other. We came from a server-based system which had issues in integrating with pre-press and suppliers. printIQ has all of these workflows covered with their holistic cloud based system. Operating over 3 shifts with 45 staff, printIQ helps manage the workflow and maintain continuity between stock suppliers, internal shop floor, right through to outscoring.
I can now see what’s happening at a glance from anywhere in the world. When you’re working in an ever-changing industry which is so heavily leveraged towards IT and efficiencies, you really need a system that understands your business. I would recommend the printIQ MWS to any forward-thinking company, as it has been built with tomorrow's print workflows in mind.

Having used printIQ for almost a year I would have to say that it ticks all the boxes as a quality all round MIS/Workflow system. To date we have been pleasantly surprised with how far we have come in such a short space of time. Only having scratched the surface of the functionally and integration possibilities on offer there is still plenty of scope for further advancements within our production environment. With a strong focus on product development and continuous improvement the R&D team are really thinking ‘big picture’ and regularly release exciting new features that further enhance an already brilliant product.
All the team at printIQ are extremely personable and they back it up with great product support. Therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending printIQ as a product which continues to develop and push the boundaries that are necessary to remain ahead of the game in today’s challenging environment.

We have been working with printIQ for over 4 years and from the beginning we knew we had made the right choice. Since our implementation, we have diversified in many areas and printIQ has been able to facilitate each stage of our growth. printIQ is now an integral part of our business and has helped in automating and streamlining our processes. The efficiencies we’ve gained in allowing our account managers to quote has increased our quote response rate without having to employ dedicated estimators.
Production scheduling has never been easier, it has allowed us to move to a paperless job bag environment with real time data reducing the number of errors in production. The reporting module has allowed us to understand our operations and make better-calculated decisions for the future growth of our business. None of this would be possible without a dedicated, innovative and committed team and that is what you get from IQ. They’re always happy to bend over backwards to get the job done. printIQ has completely changed our business for the better and our company couldn’t have gone so far in such a short time without printIQ.

We chose printIQ for its wide-ranging functionality, the fact that it was cloud-based and a supplier that understands the market. We needed to know that this would be a well-planned implementation, and we were reassured by the structured and documented process that the IQ guys followed. In fact, every aspect of the plan was dated with clear deliverables.
With printIQ we have all the data at our fingertips, there is no need to be tied to the office. Our team have access to pertinent data wherever they are. And the support from printIQ has been fantastic, IQ have got a great team of guys, and when we need help they are onto it straight away.
As general manager, I have more information about the key indicators that impact profitability, and we can turn a job around more quickly than ever before. I started doing complex quotes without too much tuition because it is logical. These guys really get it, and I know we have not explored or discovered all the benefits yet. Honestly, I am really pleased with printIQ. There is no comparison to our previous MIS Systems – this really does what they said it would.
Moving away from your existing MIS, or choosing your first is a huge decision. After almost 20 years running our business with an old MIS, we needed a lot more. But who to choose? After six months researching, testing, and meeting with all the market had to offer, the Adpost Group management team selected printIQ, but more importantly we choose the IQ team as our working partners.
printIQ is more than just an MIS it’s a full MWS (Management Workflow System). With printIQ you can keep it as simple as your business requires or work with the team at IQ to customise to meet your specific business requirements. They can integrate the most complicated processes, or the specific software that your business needs.
Big thanks to Anthony, Mick and the full printIQ Team. We’re looking forward to working with you all for many years to come.
For a small printing team, printIQ has given us the software infrastructure to help expand our team and future proof our business as our team grows. It is helping us to build better relationships with our Gold Clients and allowing our quoting team to be self-sufficient, rather than reliant on others for pricing unique products. We have also found that by using the printIQ system, our error/miscommunication rate between our front end and back end has gone down by over 90 percent. This has led to less wastage and more time saved in production.
