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!”

Aleyant eDocBuilder™ Adds Image Alignment Feature

We’ve updated the eDocBuilder web-to-print variable data printing software with a new feature this week. Whether using eDocBuilder as an integration in your own print shop e-commerce solution, or as part of the Aleyant Pressero™ W2P software, you can immediately start taking advantage of this new capability.

You can now align images in a field just as you would align text. The feature works exactly the same way by selecting the desired alignment from the ‘Image Alignment’ drop down on the Format tab, as shown in the image below. Note: If the image selected fills the field, the alignment feature will not affect the image. For example, if a long rectangular image is uploaded to a long rectangular field, the image will not move. However, if the field is a long rectangle and the user uploads a square image, the square image will align to the field based on the selected image alignment position.
