imageData Group Opts for Optimus dash

1st October 2010

Optimus has over 25 years of experience in producing dynamic and feature-rich Management Information Systems, specialising in the printing industry. Optimus dash emulates all company processes from customer enquiry; estimate or job creation through the production life-cycle of a job or campaign; to invoicing and comprehensive reporting. The Optimus dash software replaces imageData Group's current Tharsten MIS system.

The Group's Project Management Team has been enthusiastic about by the software's capability: "It offers pretty much all the basic reporting and functionality you would expect from a good MIS but we are really enthused by the fact that it fully integrates with our existing online ordering systems through its E-Commerce module. It also provides the Group with high levels of automation in managing the print management process with outsourced suppliers through its Outwork Manager function. Reporting is also anticipated to be much easier with extensive use of Excel as a data driver as well as the software's very graphical displays of Key Performance Indicators. In particular the Optimus Calc engine seems to be so flexible it will be able to cater for processes which we had previously been unable to automate".

One of the most important reasons for imageData Group selecting Optimus as its new MIS partner is its consultative business approach. David Danforth, Group CEO of imageData Group explains: "We are a full service provider but many MIS companies concentrate on traditional litho processes. Whilst lithography is a significant part of our product portfolio we also have large and small format digital, screen-print, variable data solutions, online ordering, design services and outsourcing of non-printed items. We need a robust system that copes with all that we are offering today and all that we want to be in the future. Optimus simply understood our objectives!"

Optimus's Sales Director, Steve Richardson states; "It was a pleasure to help find the right solution for imageData Group as they are part of a new-wave of media companies, which Dash was designed for. Optimus is delighted to be working in partnership with imageData Group, who not only have a very long standing and enviable reputation but who are also incredibly forward thinking."
