EFI MarketDirect StoreFront Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about EFI MarketDirect StoreFront's features:

Kara Lumsden

MDSF Review

2020-08-12

MDSF allows a convenient way for customers with multiple locations to control ordering as well as branding standards.

Pros

Both are easy to use and make branding a storefront quick and painless.

Cons

The product setup needs a ton of work. Importing all product types in bulk with the ability to associate images for each product would drastically improve storefront deployment.

Big positives and small negatives for us

2019-04-30

The ability of our users to see and interact with documents when ordering is a HUGE improvement over our old "blind" ordering system.

Pros

Plenty of built in UI templates for those that can't/won't play with code.

Cons

Occasional random little glitches/changes (like sort order settings or other fine detail) that pop up occasional or following an upgrade.

Educational Printing and Partner Printing

Overall has been a great asset to our organization.

Pros

This resolved a deficiency in our order management and billing and revamped how we control job flow to individual printers as well as divisions.

Cons

Site is customizable but needs a someone who understands causality of why each section works with the other for system to work.

DSF Review

2020-08-12

The software resolve a lot of non-value waste such as logging in orders, tracking, notifying customers, and building a customer print job, pre-press.

Pros

The tracking feature is great, the ease of use for customers.

Cons

The lack of integrating the software with a shipping solution, and unnecessary third party involvement on the mass mailing side.

A hot mess of unnavigable jargon

2020-08-12

The customer support has been adequate, but necessary due to the challenges of the back end.

Pros

It is customizable. The templates are standard fare.

Cons

It has taken me weeks to learn how to find key functionality, and required technical support to show me how to find what I needed.

Great storefront on it's own

2020-08-20

After a few years we have grown our ticket templates to a few hundred and have grown our products to a few thousand.

Pros

I like all the different type of options when it comes to products, I appreciate the level of customization across the entire backend such as printing services, papers, products, design, etc.

Cons

I will say the level of control with SmartCanvas is very nice locking fonts, colors, sizing or allowing the buyer to fully customize the product in anyway.

MDSF REview

2020-08-12

I've had a smaller learning curve than most who would take this website platform on because of my web background...

Pros

I also like the admin control and the user based permissions.

Cons

Yes, we've had lots of trouble with the Monarch integration, and our accounting dept. is not pleased with reports tools or how credit card systems are sometimes buggy.

Interprint MDSF Review

2020-07-17

We set up different storefronts and brand them for specific customers, who really appreciate how easy the interface works and it looks great too.

Pros

This software is fantastic for streamlining the order process for our clients, and processing orders that would usually take someone a long time to manually process!

Cons

It would be great to have an easier, more direct contact with technical support for the issues that disrupt the use of the storefront.

David Christofferson

Great at what it does, not flexible for what it doesn’t.

2020-08-12

We were able to replace ~40 websites with one DF license.

Pros

Integrates well with Pace, but can stand on its own if needed.

Cons

It doesn’t handle products like semi-customizable tshirts with any amount of grace.

MarketDirect StoreFront is a solid platform for selling print and fulfillment

2020-08-12

As we see more and more apparel sites, storefront has been able to fill that need. Storefront has been the answer for most of our fulfillment customers and it sure streamlines business cards.

Pros

It fits most of our customers needs. It integrates well with our MIS system, PACE.

Cons

Help is not always easy to navigate and search.

Additional Revenue Stream for our Company

2020-08-20

[SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] has been really great to work with, super helpful and always willing to search for alternative ways to accomplish what we need.

Pros

We liked that it had the ecommerce functionality built in and that we could integrate with other internal systems.

Cons

Some of the functionalities haven't been working correctly so certain sites have not been able to launch yet.

Great functionality but alot of work up front

2020-08-12

With the new system we are utilizing some of the features like business card templates where the client fills in their information and proofs it themselves before we even see it.

Pros

The easy of using the different template options is a very simple process.

Cons

There are certainly features in the old system that would be nice to have in the new system - such as being able to drag and drop line items from one to reorganize things.

StoreFront is Great for Internal Print Shop

2020-08-20

We have now moved our billing to be fulling connected to the StoreFront, which has cut down on time for processing billing monthly and it has made ordering easier for our customers.

Pros

The software is very customizable in regards to images and building your products.

Cons

There are too many updates in between full release updates. This makes it difficult to keep up with. This also causes some admin features to be hidden and difficult to find.

Great end product for customers but getting there is hard.

2020-08-12

It is perfect for us to build a storefront for customers who are looking for an easy button for repeat orders.

Pros

I also like that we can personalize the URL for each store making it fit the brand of the people we are building for.

Cons

The help section is very in-depth, which is great, but it does not tell you what needs to happen in what order. I am also very disappointed that MarketDirect does not integrate easily with Monarch.

Market Direct for InPlant

2020-08-20

The organization then purchased another EFI product, PrintSmith to do the management functions for the shop that were desired and the integration between the 2 systems was difficult.

Pros

It seems to work fine and I know many others that use it - however, as with most integrations, it doesn't work easily with other MIS systems such as PrintSmith Vision.

Cons

Ease of integration with other systems.

Works well

2020-08-20

For the most part it's been great. Updates occur regularly and we see improvements.

Pros

Setup and deployment was easy. Customizability was pretty good, and people on campus use it daily.

Cons

It is advertised to integrate well with PrintSmith Vision, but we have issues with communication between both systems that requires employees to go in and fix tickets frequently.

Pros

Have had a great Professional Services Consultant that has help train me and given direction to achieve our goals for web-to-print and integration.

Cons

Many issues that have been encountered and reported to support are still issue.

Storefront

2020-08-12

The software is not what we were shown in the demo and we struggled along to find out we were sold the hosting option but it would not allow the custom reporting our customers needed so we were switched to a self-hosted option almost a year into our struggle.

Pros

It offered a lot of features and some customization.

Cons

It is so customizable it's hard to pin down or complete what is needed.

Underlying customer service with personalized customer sites.

2020-08-20

We simply create what they are asking for so it can be reordered easily online through their own website. More revenue, and increased productivity.

Pros

The ability to personalize an ordering process specific to one customer allows us to build a relationship and trust without additional customer service personnel or sales staff.

Cons

Design tools for creating art within the storefront are limited and require extra training of our customers and in house users.
