Soltect offers time saving solutions for printers of all sizes

Soltect director Yves Roussange likens the workflow solutions he offers to Lego bricks – they can be customised to any format to best remove touchpoints and save time for print businesses of all sizes.

Roussange recently exhibited his products at PacPrint and is looking forward to having the opportunity to discuss the productivity benefits he could bring to printers looking to save time, be more productive and more profitable.

In addition to distributing the Enfocus and Pitstop Pro pre-press range, Soltect also works with major MIS providers to create customised solutions which are designed to remove physical touchpoints from initial order to final dispatch.

For smaller print businesses, Soltect also offers Good2Gosoftware, an American software package which Roussange has remodelled for the Australian market.

Good2Gosoftware is a cloud-based subscription-based customer experience package which Roussange says eliminates time consuming emails going back and forth between print shop customers and customer service representatives in smaller businesses.

In terms of costs, Good to Go is $80 per month for one user or $280 per month for five users.

When it comes to working out what print businesses need to save time and increase productivity, Roussange says he asks a couple of key questions before he begins to put together a solution as a ‘one size fits all’ approach does not work in the printing industry due to its diversity.

“I look at customer need and ask two simple questions: where are they coming from and where do they want to finish? I ask these questions so I can understand how their processes work so we can automate manual tasks inside their print business,” Roussange told Sprinter from the floor of PacPrint.

Soltect can deliver solutions for any type of printer whether it be wide format, textiles, commercial print or labels and packaging.

Roussange likens his solution to Lego, adding the possibilities are endless due to the array of solutions that can be build depending on specific needs.

“I have got the tools to connect any technology together to remove physical touchpoints and help printers save time, get jobs done faster and become more profitable,” he said.

What Roussange has noted in his many dealings with print business owners is many companies have what he calls “islands of automation” operating as distinct units within the business. He finds these automated island-like spaces are not connected resulting in lost opportunities for timesaving and productivity enhancing workflows.

“Every printer is different as they have all got a culture which makes them very special and unique. If you look at the industry today, everybody is getting more specialised in what they do so there are many opportunities for efficiency,” he said.

“I can use a number of different software packages to create a tailored solution for each specific business to remove these manual touchpoints. I often think I know their business better than they know it because I know how to ask the tricky questions.”

In terms of time frames, Roussange said it would take between four to six weeks to assess a business and create a solution for it.

“The solution is only as good as the information I receive. I integrate with any MIS like Tharstern because I need to get the information about the jobs and the quantities, media type and where it is being printed because I want to auto populate that information inside the RIP,” he said.
