Aleyant Pressero™ Adds Palette Management Feature for Responsive Skins

For the responsive skins only, you can store a single custom color palette. This feature allows you to save a color palette, so you can use that palette on other sites or revert to the palette if you decide against changes you’ve made to the custom skin color settings. To store a custom palette, simply click the “Store” button in the “Current Palette” area. You will see that the palette populates in the “Stored Palette” area. If you would like to load this palette into a site, simply click the “Load” button in the “Stored Palette” area. Note – clearing your browser cache will remove the stored palette.

You can also load any of the palette presets for the responsive skins. The default color palettes for each of the responsive skins are available in the “Palette Presets” area.  If you would like to use any of these default color palettes in your site, simply click the “Load” button located below the color palette.

Aleyant Pressero Now Fully Integrated with HP SmartStream Solution Suite for Seamless Web to Print Order-to-Production Workflow

HP-SmartStream-Integration

August 4, 2015. Wheaton ILAleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced the full integration of its Pressero web-to-print solution with HP’s SmartStream Solution Suite of workflow solutions using Aleyant’s Automated Workflow Integrator (AWI). This is the formalization of an earlier collaboration that made Pressero available to HP SmartStream users.

“This integration of Pressero with the SmartStream Solution Suite brings Pressero’s affordable capabilities to HP Indigo users worldwide that are currently using HP SmartStream Designer, Composer, Production Center and/or Production Pro but still need a fully functional, easy-to-use web-to-print solution,” said Greg Salzman, Aleyant’s President.

The collaboration between Aleyant and HP enables Indigo Print Service Providers to more easily overcome the barrier of selecting and implementing a web-to-print solution because of the tight integration with the HP SmartStream Solution Suite. The thousands of HP Indigo users that are using HP SmartStream Designer to create highly sophisticated personalized pieces can now upload these templates into the Pressero web-to-print interface for easy order submission. The file is then sent directly to print through HP SmartStream Composer for rendering, followed by either HP SmartStream Production Center or HP SmartStream Production Pro for print production. This integration allows users to leverage existing Designer templates and eliminates the need to learn a new design tool for template creation, as well as the need to export the data files and manually type all the meta data (copy count, substrate). In this way, it stands to significantly increase print production efficiencies and makes it easier for customers to do business with Print Service Providers.

About the HP SmartStream Solution Suite
The HP SmartStream Solution Suite consists of three primary modules. These include:

HP SmartStream Production Center: A shop-floor management system that addresses the needs of managing and producing high-volumes of short run jobs more efficiently. Production Center provides real-time visibility into every job on the production floor from pre-press through shipping.

HP SmartStream Designer:  HP SmartStream Designer lets users create sophisticated, custom jobs through a simple, affordable variable data tool optimized for HP Indigo presses and based on industry-standard tools. With this InDesign software plug-in, users can conveniently personalize any print job’s images, text, and colors—creating virtually unlimited variations of the design for maximize impact.

HP SmartStream Composer: Users can boost productivity with HP SmartStream Composer, a powerful composition tool for personalized jobs using HP SmartStream Designer templates, offering the next step in automation, performance, and scalability.

HP SmartStream Production Pro, HP’s Digital Front End for its Indigo Presses, has also been integrated with Pressero so that jobs can be sent directly to SmartStream Production Pro for users who are not taking advantage of HP SmartStream Production Center.

Simple Solutions Credit Aleyant Pressero™ with Tripled Revenues for Key Franchise Customer

Pressero-transparent-whitebackgr

July 22, 2015. Wheaton IL — Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today reported that Illinois-based Simple Solutions Printing has implemented Aleyant Pressero with its built-in Aleyant eDocBuilder variable data publishing (VDP) and personalization system to meet the needs of a large franchise business. The company had been producing print for a retail chain with about 50 stores. The customer wanted to transfer its employee apparel program to Simple Solutions, so Simple Solutions added a free open-source web storefront to meet the customer’s online ordering requirements. As the business grew, Simple Solutions realized the need to acquire a more sophisticated web-to-print storefront solution.

Simple Solutions looked at a variety of options and selected the Aleyant Pressero storefront solution with its built-in Aleyant eDocBuilder VDP and personalization template system. “A particular advantage for this customer,” says Bryant Gillespie, a consultant for Simple Solutions, “is Pressero’s user roles. You can specify what permission levels each user has. Team members can only see a certain range of products and order shirts.  Managers and assistant managers can order supplies as well as button-up polos and woven shirts. We also offer custom apparel for employees they can order and have the cost deducted from their paycheck. It works beautifully and there is no more faxing. Instead, managers/approvers get an email when someone places an order, they click approve, and we handle rest. Fits right in with our name – a simple solution for them!”

This retail customer has now grown to more than 70 locations being served from the company’s Aleyant Pressero storefront selling print, signs and apparel. Revenue from this customer grew from $100,000 annually to about $300,000 now. Simple Solutions’ success with this customer has opened the door to the acquisition of business from several other similar customers as well as an opportunity to build a new B2C business offering canvas prints and personalized art.

“The future is bright,” Gillespie adds, “and we have Aleyant to thank for a great deal of that optimism!”
