OcĂ© PRISMA Accounting Software Provides Accurate Analysis of Production Cost4/16/2007
Production managers gain valuable business tools for production data capture and reporting
April 16, 2007, Boston, MA – Océ, a global leader in digital document management and delivery solutions, introduces Océ PRISMATM Accounting software for intelligent information tracking, capture and reporting to help print professionals measure, manage and improve production performance.
Océ PRISMA Accounting software provides a more accurate way to identify costs, bottlenecks and downtime along with opportunities for improvement. Print operations can identify workflow strengths and deficiencies, optimizing efficiency and productivity. Productivity improvement depends on understanding how well processes, people and equipment are performing. Océ´ PRISMA Accounting Software tracks every process, job and user, along with data streams, devices and operators, giving more visibility into the operation. As a result, managers are better able to target productivity improvements in areas that are not performing well. Print centers can also improve resource utilization and make better decisions about future printing hardware and software investments.
"Many print production operations are cost centers and lack a clear understanding of production costs or the volumes of pages printed and mailed. Now with Océ PRISMA Accounting Software, print performance can be associated with production expenses, so operations get a clearer picture of costs of their production runs for more accurate pricing and other financial analysis," said Joyce Virnich, Vice President, Marketing, Océ North America Commercial Printing Division.
Managers can analyze data in five key areas: jobs, users, devices, media and consumables. Users can identify the source of each printing request and track actual production. Productivity reports are available by operator, printer and more, and custom reports can be generated to support informed business decisions.
Compliance with quality standards and regulatory requirements is a concern for regulated industries. However, many production operations lack complete accounting for the documents they produce. To avoid penalties, print operations are implementing accounting software as part of a closed-loop production tracking system. With Oce´ PRISMA Accounting Software, users can verify document content and production from data stream production to delivery to ensure compliance.
The accounting process is consolidated into a single application with an easy-to-use interface and fully automated data collection. Graphical presentation of data makes it easier to evaluate information. Managers have universal access to accounting data from anywhere on the network, and they can conveniently access relevant performance data via the web. Océ PRISMA Accounting software uses an open SQL to tie into existing databases for financial reporting.
