Pressero is Now Integrated with Avalara Tax Service

Pressero is now integrated with Avalara Tax Service (AvaTax).  There is no additional cost from Aleyant to use this integration.  However, you will need an account with Avalara that does cost.
To set the integration:
1)  Set up your account with Avalara.
2)  Open a ticket on the support portal and send us the following information:
a.  Avalara account number, license key, and company code
b.  Which site(s) should use the integration.
c.  Avalara will issue both “test” and “live” credentials. Please provide your test credentials first. When you are ready to go live, then send your live credentials.
We will configure the integration.  Once configured, you will see no difference in your Pressero admin area.  Instead your site will return tax rates via the integration.

Exciting Changes for Pressero Coming 2Q 2015

Over the last few years we have introduced a number of new features and capabilities to Pressero.  Our focus has been on continual, frequent improvements.  I know it’s been very rewarding for the entire Aleyant team to see so many printing companies be successful using the Pressero Web-to-Print platform.
We have also seen a number of changes in our industry over the last few years.  Web technologies and software development approaches have evolved quite a bit.  Mobile is increasingly important.  Printing companies are expanding beyond ink on paper.  What is expected from a Web-to-Print solution is far more sophisticated than what our customers needed in the past.
To continually offer more from Pressero, it is time to once again invest in its architecture.  This means we need to put a brief hold on churning out new capabilities so that we can focus on re-engineering its core processes in a more robust and scalable manner.  Although faster speeds will be a side benefit, our goal with this re-investment is not to create new capabilities, but to provide a better foundation to build new features on top of.
We have already started working on version 6 and believe that we will complete it in the second quarter of 2015.  It’s important for you to know that during this time, Aleyant will continue provide technical support and fix any issues that surface with version 5.  Also, this will be an “in place” upgrade, meaning that there is nothing you will need to do when it is ready.  And rest assured that we will invite you to try out the new version before we make it publically available.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks,
Greg Salzman
President

eDocBuilder Update adds Copy Formatting, New Color Palette Selection, and ITF-14 Barcodes

We have updated the Aleyant eDocBuilder™ web-to-print variable data printing software with some great new capabilities. Whether using eDocBuilder as an integration in your own printshop e-commerce solution, or as part of the Aleyant Pressero™ W2P software, you can immediately start taking advantage of these new capabilities.

Save time with “Copy Formatting” option

As you know, eDocBuilder supports a large number of customizable settings for formatting a field on a Web2Print template.  You can now quickly replicate these field settings from one field on the template to another field by clicking on the new “Copy Formatting From” drop down box, located in the lower right hand corner of the field settings tab. This will make setting up a series of similar fields even faster an easier than before.

Color Palettes now support Color Name or Color Palette views

We received many requests to display color names in the Color palette, to make it easier for your customers to find the correct color among many similar colors.  Great news! The improved user interface now enables your customers to quickly toggle the Color palette to either show or hide the palette names you assigned to each color. This new enhancement is supported in both Interactive Designer and form-based templates.

eDocBuilder_Color_Palette_SelectorITF-14 Barcode added to the Barcode Generator

eDocBuilder’s form-based, design online templates now support the generation of ITF-14 (Interleaved 2 of 5) Barcodes in addition to the existing Standard Barcodes (3 of 9, Type 128, UPC, Type 39, 128, UPC, UPC-a, UPC-e), USPS Postal Barcodes (Postnet, Intelligent Mail, Planet) and 2D Barcodes (QR Codes, DataMatrix, PDF417).
