Central SignShop is designed for use by a corporate-run, central printing shop or third-party print service provider, and provides full operational control over centrally printed jobs. Central SignShop is a great tool for print service providers looking to automate production of retail signs and labels or retail organizations that operate a central printing facility.
Print What You Need, Where You Need It, When You Want It
Central printing with AccessVia is making it easier for retailers to slash print productions and in-store labor costs by sending batches to high-speed digital printers at one of our print service provider (PSP) partners.
AccessVia PSP partners accept print-ready files from the AccessVia Publishing Platform. Our PSP partners produce, sort, box, and ship signs, labels, and tags to retail store locations within hours of receiving the request from a retailer. Economies of scale mean lower production and handling costs for large or custom print runs, saving you time and money.
Best of all, you are in control of what is printed where. You decide which print jobs go to the PSP and which jobs go to the stores for printing on site. You'll still be able to rely on in-store, on-demand printing of ad-hoc signs or replacements for any immediate needs or to better manage shipping interruptions.
Execution-Optimized Printing for All the Labor Savings Available
With the integration available from the AccessVia Publishing Platform, all of your different templates and design backgrounds are produced and collated in the perfect in-aisle execution order — uniquely done for each store in your enterprise. Each store receives every sign they need, and none they don't, in perfect hanging order. Your employees will never have to spend time organizing newly printed signs or worry about which signs go where. Whether printed centrally or in the store, the results are the same.
Create High-Quality, Press-Ready Files
Generate high-quality PostScript or PDF files ready to send to your press. Minimize RIP time with predefined data variability.
Automate Central Printing
Automatically generate printer-ready files and ship them unattended to the Print Service Provider (PSP) of your choice. The highly scalable publishing server can be scheduled to run at any interval to produce up to one million signs per hour. The system is easily configured to control the order, the grouping and naming of output files and deliver any specific file types to support your PSP's workflow and handles file generation and FTP upload to maximize throughput while insuring robust error-handling and process-monitoring.
Manage Central Printing Operations
Manage printing operations across jobs and across stores and manage construction of printer-ready files including preflight information. Package your files according to your workflow and processes and integrate with an existing information management (IM) workflow process.
Manage Print Service Providers
Enterprise retailers can have vendors, suppliers, warehouses and OEMs use their extranet to do centralized printing of signs and labels. Manage printer billing and shipping logistics and integrate with the retailer's existing shipping infrastructure.
Centrally Generate Digital Signs
Whether your digital sign architecture is designed for central or distributed creation of digital sign content, the AccessVia platform can meet your needs. Our flexible system enables retailers to customize their signing solution to function exactly how they need. No matter how or where your signs are published, they will always look just right.
