An advanced suite of on-line solutions to allow the Print Service Provider direct control of his customers processes.
Web Services Uses:
Bill Presentment & Payment
Proofs for Approval
Web services take on many roles with varying configurations and topologies.
The most basic need to is to have several development centers send prroduction requests to Print Service Providers who have spercific printing capability. Fedex/Kinko have a model that meets these needs.
As print jobs becomre complex, it may be more efficient to send a print template with the merge data file to the printing location. These would reduce bandwidth requirements as well as support the next evolutionary step of on line VDP client access.
Online Viewing of Specific VDP Records
This capability derives from "paperless" solutions used by many utilities, insurance companies and others that have monthly billing and statements. In this scenario, the web server could reproduce the latest invoice on request by invoking the tools that created the printed version.
Web to Print
In this scenario, end users or clients of the Print Service Provider can develop projects locally and submit them for printing at their location. This system involves the project development activity, proofing, ordering, payment and delivery components of the process..
Homogenous Internet Marketing
In this scenario, a continuum of marketing activities are combined to form a unified approach to client branding and customer conversion.
Direct Mail, email, and Personalized URLs are used to influence the buyer to take some call to action. Common tools are required to develop and deploy these marketing messages for end user businesses.
Jet Letter has positioned itself in this web based arena based upon the solid image preparation and rapid database merge performance to support many of these online requirements going forward.
Jet Letter will be announcing a suite of tools aimed at helping Print Service Providers expand their business by offering them turn key solutions, branded to the Print Service Provider's business.
