Pros

The fact that PressWise is always moving forward, adding new features and listens to their customers' needs is what keeps me with them. Even when I'm being a pain in the butt customer, I know they would gladly hop on a call to help out or shoot a quick video to step me through a process I can't grasp.
My team contacts the PressWise team through the easy ticket system so that I don't have to answer everything for them.

Cons

Exporting accounting information has been our toughest challenge. Integrating it into the accounting software we were already using. We have created a work around, but still not ideal.

Why we changed to PressWise

The team at PressWise was very professional from the beginning and the support has been great. Usually get back to us right away and we got pretty busy during the time of purchasing this and it was great that the team reached out pushing us a long to make sure we stayed on track as best as possible.

Pros

Allows our sales team to work remotely when needed and check to to where jobs are at in the shop. At first getting all of the correct info in the system was a challenge just like any other software, but now we all can easily go through steps without having lots of challenges.

Cons

Some of the other features we had in the old software made it easier to change things than this one and some of the changes would like to make are just not available right now. Defiantly the pros outway the cons though.

Reasons for Choosing PressWise

It really started when it only had a server base option and could only run on PC. We also became more of a digital shop so this fit our model better than EPMS

Reasons for Switching to PressWise

It really came down to what system was more complex and we felt like EFI system navigation was very hard to follow. After demoing both with a group of four of us it was a simple choice after we all voted on PressWise

PressWise System Review

Vital to our growth and we become more reliant on the software every day!

Pros

We are a Offset Printing Business and we also do Signs, Banners and Vehicle Graphics the estimating part of PressWise for our business is critical and has made it possible for other members of our Team to generate quotes quickly and accurately. We also are using the Storefront piece of PressWise which we are expecting to be vital in the coming year for our growth in sales and products we offer. Developing Stores for our A+ customers is our goal for this coming year. When Covid restrictions basically stopped 40% of our business in a day since we were using PressWise we were able to change our Marketing Plan quickly and assist our customers in adapting and complying with regulations. We were able to quickly setup stores for floor graphics, yard signs and wayfinding signage that helped our customers get through this strange time.
The PressWise team is very quick to respond to issues submitted as Support Tickets.

Cons

We are a staff of 7 so it was difficult to get the software setup if I had it to do over again I would have had PressWise on site to help us with initial setup as we took 2 years before we actually started using the system on a daily basis.

Customer support is suberb ... friendly and responsive. Every person we have dealt with has exhibited a genuine desire to help. Their communication systems support that. The team searches out options, is willing to make changes to the system, and will make custom tweaks for a reasonable price. Coming from a poor customer experience with our last MIS, this is one of the main reasons we landed on PressWise and we have not been disappointed.

Pros

There is an implementation plan that takes the mystery out of getting up and running. The knowledge base is VERY helpful, particularly the many videos. The training and customer support is excellent. The back end is relatively easy to program, very detailed and robust. Taxation is automatically updated and easily programmed. The storefront is customizable and intuitive. The system, when used properly, has solid processes that delivers many, many efficiencies.

Cons

The system was built to interact with QuickBooks, however, for larger organizations, I would say that the financial reporting is on the weak side. We recognized this in the purchasing process and made the decision to purchase in spite of that because nothing is perfect, and Presswise seemed to offer more of what we wanted relative to other firms. That said, it was fabulous working with our technical liaison, who was very creative in developing a custom export for us to upload to our ERP, at a minimal charge. I also understand that reporting is an area that is being aggressively reviewed and improved.

Response from SmartSoft

Thank you so much for your kind words, Jan. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team, who helped make the integration process go so well by being so organized and on top of everything. A true partnership and we are thrilled to have you on board.

It's worth it and more.

We are a fan and have shared our experience often.

Pros

Put your process into PressWise and watch your production bumps smooth out.

Cons

As we find cons we bring them to support and soon enough they move to the Pros list.

Alternatives Considered

DocketManager, EFI Pace and Avanti

Reasons for Choosing PressWise

We wanted a system that was more than an online calculator. We wanted something to drive our process and increase our capacity.

Switched From
