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.

Pros

The PrintSmith Vision team works to deliver a good product with a good support team. Partnering with them allows the PrintSmith team to be as responsive as possible.
I like the ease of use and set up. How it makes my company run more efficiently and helps gain and track profitability.
Then, they created a completely new user interface to run with HTML5, which is even easier to use, more powerful, and more responsive to the user. EFI support has been excellent.

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.

Cons

Training videos & manual are horrendous. Many of th functions are "hidden", hard to find or figure out as a new user, its coming along but parts are frustrating.
Not saving new items automatically - loose estimates when I am distracted by someone else.
Delviery slips, and many other functions, do not exist in 4.7 and so once 5.0 is loaded there is no going back. This was terrible planning and execution for a deadline that Adobe set years ago.

PressWise

Moved to PressWise after 20 years and never looked back.

Reviewed 3 years ago

We were on EFI PrintSmith for 20 years and moved to PressWise because we needed more automation. Since the move we have acquired multiple competitors and have successfully converted them from PrintSmith, PrintSmith Vision, PrintersPlan, QuickBooks, and even a place that estimated with a book and a yellow legal pad.

Pros

PressWise helps manage your process, takes out touchpoints, saves time and money while increasing capacity to do more with less. Quotes with click-to-order buttons. Invoices are downloaded or emailed instantly. Impostion on the fly. Integration with UPS and FEDEX. Team loves it!

Cons

When there is a con the PressWise Support team is open to listening and with a good enough business case they make the change.

Vendor response

Thank you so much for both your kind words and your proactive support for PressWise amongst your peers. You truly are a rockstar PressWise client!
