Banish the islands of machines, processes and systems that run your business and run faster (and smarter).
Markets are globalising, prices continue to tumble and costs are increasing. In this new reality, becoming more efficient is the number one priority. Unfortunately most print and production businesses are islands of machines, people, processes and software. Which means cost and time is added - job by job.
ZenSmart is a flexible software platform that is designed from the ground up to apply smart business rules to connect your islands into a beautiful automated whole.
Critically, ZenSmart is an open automation system that can integrate with your existing investments. Any MIS, any press, any RIP, any smart machine.
Whether it be getting more press capacity; profitably handling smaller batch sizes; driving out waste or reducing staff - factory automation delivers many benefits.
What is different about ZenSmart, is that we see automation being possible right from the first touchpoint with the customer right through your business process. From lead to logistics, our platform focuses on every touchpoint in the business to remove inefficiency (and find opportunity), wherever it may be.
Every business is different - different presses, RIPS, finishing equipment and different software systems.
ZenSmart is designed to bring intelligent business and factory automation into exactly this sort of situation. And because we have grown up in the most complex of manufacturing situations (think ten’s of thousands of products and product combinations with strict SLA’s), flexibility is designed into the very DNA of the ZenSmart automation system.
Imagine being able to take a file from receipt straight through to the press based on your least cost business rules, all while juggling different levels of customer priority and inline producing all the batch and job sheets, barcodes and instructions to speed the order through finishing. Imagine jobs automatically processing on your finishing equipment with no staff intervention, all while collecting cost data - keeping track of every sheet used, every unit quality failed and then intelligently shipping the output based on smart shipping algorithms that make sure you are packing and shipping in the most cost effective way.
This is not imagination, it is reality.
ZenSmart is a software platform made up of a series of flexible components that can be individually selected to meet the unique needs of your business.
And where you have very specific requirements, our extensive experience in integrating equipment from HP, Ricoh, Epson, Canon, Fuji, Fiery, Kolbus, Horizon, Technau and various smart packing machinery, we will build interfaces to any connectable smart machine or isolated software platform and join it into a fully automated solution.
ZenSmart sees far beyond factory automation. It focuses on your entire business process from the custom contact record to order through printing, production, customer service, marketing, logistics onto finance and business intelligence.
The beauty is that you only select those components that are relevant to your business drivers and circumstance, so the right level of investment is easy to find. And because ZenSmart is multi brand, multi channel aware - it’s possible to deploy in the way that fits your business best.
ZenSmart is ready to go now. A smart and flexible automation solution ready to connect the components of your business in new and innovative ways.
From first contact with a customer to final shipping, ZenSmart will transform how your business performs.
