The application had to be ‘user friendly’ and meet my needs without too much adjustment. Nothing came close to doing what PrintSmith does.
What used to take us 20 minutes before, now takes 5-10 minutes, which is a huge savings. Not only can we process orders more quickly, they are more accurate, since no human is involved. Together with the intelligence we gather from the reporting features, the system literally pays for itself!
There was no need to be afraid that installing a print management system would be hard or that I would own a product that would sit on the shelf for months. It was easy to get up and running. It’s been a great investment.

How does PrintSmith Vision work?
Get estimates quick, accurately, and right the first time. With EFI PrintSmith Vision you can generate estimates for all of your jobs, from business cards and letterheads to complex projects. This solution provides multi-bidding capabilities for up to 40 different quantities, invoice templates, and estimates history.
Centralize your order management and quickly turn your estimates into profitable orders for your organization. EFI PrintSmith Vision makes it fast and easy to turn estimates into orders while providing complete visibility into the entire process: sales order, scheduling, and production. This solution allows you to reduce errors and improve capacity without increasing overhead.
A full range of financial reporting options enables your organization to automate the management of your job costing, invoicing, accounts payable, and accounts receivable operations. Managing invoices and payments is an automated process with invoicing driven by information already collected in the system throughout the estimating and production processes. The solutions provides detail aging reports displaying all unpaid items for each account, making tracking and collection of invoices easy. In addition, PrintSmith Vision has the ability to connect to many leading accounting packages giving you complete financial reporting.
Replacing whiteboard or tag-based solutions has never been easier. With EFI PrintSmith Vision you automate your scheduling process, increase your throughput, and manage your resources more effectively. This state-of-the art scheduling solution provides a simpler way to manage your entire scheduling process, offering drag-and-drop capabilities and job tags that are automatically updated in real time with status information as they move through production.
Shop-Floor Data Collection
The solution provides the ability for your shop team to document the location of jobs as they move through the production cycle, allowing your staff to identify where jobs are in the production and on the floor. With EFI PrintSmith Vision your company gains full automation and complete real-time visibility into all aspects of your operations. Save time and improve response to customer’s job status inquiries.
The new PrintSmith Vision Mobile Views let management maintain operational visibility while on the road or at home. This is an excellent tool if you need to check work in progress, check the status of a job, or review jobs on estimates and invoices in an accounts history. The extended visibility allows you to manage without making a trip back to the plant or calling a staff member.
The solution provides users with faster access to the information they need with the ability to set follow-up reminders to make the most out of every opportunity. Our goal is to eliminate touches while moving the user as quickly as possible to the information needed to make informed operational and business decisions.
Integrated Credit Card Processing
EFI PrintSmith Vision enables your organization to use more ways to collect payments faster and more conveniently, while offering additional payment options for your customers. This solution makes credit card transactions as simple as swiping or typing a credit card number. Additionally, a plug-and-play cash drawer and receipt printer can be added to your professional point-of-sale system so your company can offer improved service to your customers while facilitating payments to your organization.
