At Repro, the following technology implementations are in place.
We have implemented the leading print-industry specific ERP solution, EFI. EFI helps manage new and ongoing job requests flowing in from the Enterprise Content Management system. When an order is confirmed, it enters into a job management cycle. The entire plant operations are scheduled around the job, enabling us to make the most productive use of the available infrastructure.
EFI optimizes print-job schedules across multiple machines across our plants. Our sales managers can place online requests for quotes. The RFQ is processed by the system to generate an estimate, via the estimation module. Customers can get their quote in 24 to 48 hours.
Publishers working with Repro, have access to a digital storefront, from where they can place repeat orders for books. The orders once approved are automatically scheduled for production. This minimizes turnaround time.
Repro uses an Enterprise Content Management (ECM) system to manage publishers’ content through its life cycle. ECM has enabled us put in place a project management based approach for managing all content related activities.
Xml files are securely stored in and accessed from the ECM. Publishers have access to their files. When needed,
they can update the content.
