TimeHarvest Ltd, the market-leading, MIS software package that was built for digital from the ground up, has confirmed that it will be on show at this year’s Sign & Digital exhibition, taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from April 29 to May 1, 2014.
Celebrating its tenth year of success in the field of digital print, the TimeHarvest system compiles quotes from simple “pick lists” of pre-defined values for each process. This makes the quoting process fast, flexible and consistent. Once specified, quotes are sent as a PDF attached to an email and automatically addressed to the client. Each quote can carry a promotional message chosen for that client.
Successful quotes are converted into jobs with just one click. A colour-coded production board with linked work tickets allows jobs to be moved forward and signed off quickly and efficiently. Branded delivery notes and other job documentation can be produced on completion, right through to the invoice.
Founding director, Geoff Stephens, commenting on the decision to exhibit at Sign & Digital, said: “Whilst we have often exhibited alongside digital engine manufacturers at their open days, it is a refreshing change for us to be exhibiting in our own right. This show gives us the opportunity to exhibit our latest secure hosting system to best effect. The TimeHarvest system provides secure, off-site back-up, and real-time access for sales people on the road. What it means is that the sales-team don’t have to return to base in order to create a quote; they can produce one there and then, right in front of the customer, or from any location with an internet connection. Digital print production is all about just-in-time printing; this system provides just-in-time quoting too!”
TimeHarvest offers a range of affordable and flexible monthly pricing plans for digital print companies that want to provide customers with consistent, accurate and reliable pricing, created from a cost-based structure. The multi-platform software runs on Mac, PC, iPad, and has web browser access.
With regard to the celebration of the company’s tenth anniversary, Geoff Stephens added: “We have been too busy so far this year to get carried away with any major celebrations, but a successful Sign & Digital might cause us to open a bottle or two!” The MIS software runs in a wide range of UK and international digital print organisations, including commercial, educational and local government operations.
It might seem an unusual reference, but one UK High Street bank has even praised the approach of TimeHarvest. The well known financial establishment recently said of the software that it had seen at a customer site: “It is above and beyond the sort of MIS that we would expect to find in a small print focused business. It would be difficult to find a system to deliver a more complete business overview without having to spend serious money. The user that we saw was able to supply up-to-the-minute answers to just about any financial question that we could pose. The information that can be extracted from this system is on a par with that delivered by many multi-nationals.”
TimeHarvest was founded in 2003 by print veteran Geoff Stephens for the express purpose of developing affordable, easy-to-use software aimed squarely at users of modern digital presses. The company operates from the UK but has clients on three continents.
