Pros
For the price of the solution I don't think it can be beat. Great product and service is a winning combination.
One of the key benefits I liked is that it has so many pre-built layouts for a good 90 percent of your digital needs and it's very good at ganging up different jobs into the same medias.
Has freed up our graphics team to do what they do best, and CSRs have more time to consult with customers versus just keying orders all day long. Support team has been amazing.
Cons
Sometimes updates have severely affected our templates and other areas of the system. A longer beta cycle may be necessary.
Pricing tables are somewhat tedious to set up; handling multi-item orders in the quote is awkward, and there is no automated way to quote custom outsourced work.
I push the envelope on all things I buy. I would say partial shipping is the feature that is the largest struggle.

As moxy ox has grown, our scaling has been made easier with additional modules offered by PressWise.

Reviewed 7 years ago

1 Cost monitoring 2 Order tracking 3 Online customer ordering 4 Daily reporting 5 Sales tracking 6 Inventory control 7 Shipping made easy 8 Auto batching 9 Client correspondence monitoring 10 Major time savings across entire team

Pros

The fact that PressWise is always moving forward, adding new features and listens to their customers' needs is what keeps me with them. Even when I'm being a pain in the butt customer, I know they would gladly hop on a call to help out or shoot a quick video to step me through a process I can't grasp. My team contacts the PressWise team through the easy ticket system so that I don't have to answer everything for them.

Cons

Exporting accounting information has been our toughest challenge. Integrating it into the accounting software we were already using. We have created a work around, but still not ideal.

Life Changing Upgrade for our center

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent - life changing really for our shop. Workflow significantly improved with print files going directly to press, ready and imposed. Has freed up our graphics team to do what they do best, and CSRs have more time to consult with customers versus just keying orders all day long. Support team has been amazing. Everyone is friendly and super responsive. They want to know about problems, issues, or wishes and resolve things quickly. I've never worked with a software company that continuously improves their product the way PressWise does.

Pros

The estimating system is solid and intuitive. "Favorites" make every day jobs easy to write up. The most impactful parts however, are the asset management, integration with our existing online ordering system, and built in shipping module. Reorders are a breeze. Print files go right to the press device without ever having to touch the prepress department. Online order integration easily saves the work of a full time CSR every day. Ticketless workflow in production has taken our efficiency to the next level.

Cons

Integration with Quickbooks was new way of doing business for us, but we have adapted. Initially we were missing some information in reports we were used to having on hand, but the PW team helped us develop reports to get us what we needed. Shipping module is really helpful but still waiting on the new version to allow for shipments with multiple boxes per location. This will be another big event for us when released.

Vendor response

What a wonderful review to read. I shared your post with our support and development teams, who were thrilled to hear your feedback on all their hard work.

Review of PressWise

Reviewed 5 months ago

We are 50/50. The QB integration is terrible. The ability to manage customer data and our team across multiple locations is very easy.

Pros

Ability to manage multiple locations, teams, and customer files is very convenient. Our delivery team and customers love the electronic delivery signatures and tracking.

Cons

Lack of integration with Quickbooks. Full data and descriptions do not import into QB. You only receive a brief line item. Orders are marked closed when data is sent to QB for accurate payment information and recording. The issue is that the order may still be in production and must be reopened. While this is a small step, it's doubling the manual actions needed to complete the order. Implementation was very slow. Even though you can "test", the issues did not show themselves until we jumped into using the software.

Why we changed to PressWise

Reviewed 3 years ago

overall experience has been great. We procrastinated on our end and it was great having their team nudge us a long to get this software up and going.

Pros

Being on the cloud has been very useful to our sales and PressWise just fits our shop very well for digital and large format. If you are looking for a system and changing from an old software I would highly recommend PressWise simply how it easy it is to navigate through it coming from an old system.

Cons

Just like any new change it just took time getting use to. There are some items we liked a little better on our old software, but the pros defiantly out way the cons.

Vendor response

Thanks for your kind words, Justin. It has been great to see your company's progress over the past 18 months. Send us an email with any of your 'wish it would do it this way' items and we'll definitely review them with the team!

Great for Higher Education

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall we love presswise. It allowed us to work with fewer staff members and helped make online ordering a breeze for clients.

Pros

We really enjoy being able to use the system to place our orders and to process the mail list. It allows for the shop to be able to easily and effectively work together.

Cons

Kitting in the storefront. We would also like certain requests to be taken with more attention. I understand there is a lot of different ways to use the system but we have to create workaround in order for it to work how we want.

Vendor response

Santiago, thank you for your kind words. It has been a pleasure to work with you and your talented team over the past couple of years. Looking forward to many more ahead.
