Responsive design addresses growing demand for mobile web-to-print
Aleyant, an innovative leader in providing robust software services to the graphic communications industry at value-driven prices, today announced that it has added a suite of new website templates to its Aleyant Pressero™ web-to-print solution. These templates are created using responsive design techniques, ensuring proper display on all device form factors, including mobile. They also function in any language and with any product type.
“Both printers and end users are increasingly using mobile devices, including both phones and tablets, to access a variety of information and execute tasks,” said Greg Salzman, President of Aleyant. “This has led to a need for responsive development in a wide array of applications, including web-to-print. Our latest Pressero web-to-print responsive design site templates ensure that information is easy to access regardless of the viewing platform, language or product type being used. This also makes it easier for print customers to execute orders and for printers to monitor those orders from any device or location at their convenience.”
Salzman points out that Aleyant Systems has employed responsive design techniques for quite some time through its Aleyant eDocBuilder™ variable data publishing system, adding, “Responsive design has also always been a feature in our tools for creating customized web sites. These new standard templates, however, will make it easier for users to get started when they deploy Pressero, with the assurance that they are using industry-standard responsive design techniques that ensure the mobile approach today’s market requires.”
Pressero from Aleyant is an affordable and easy-to-use cloud-based B2B or B2C online storefront solution that can quickly and easily be customized to individual client needs. This includes responsive design for branded sites to ensure proper display regardless of the viewing device being used. Because it is delivered as Software as a Service, it has a pay-as-you-go model that involves limited up-front costs. Pressero can be enhanced with the addition of eDocBuilder, a web-based variable data publishing system built specifically to easily integrate into Aleyant or third-party web-to-print or MIS solutions. It features advanced typography control, imposition, scripting support, PDF workflows, rapid template creation, Excel merge capabilities and more. The Aleyant Automated Workflow Integrator™ (AWI) makes online operations as streamlined and affordable as possible, and AWI is a critical enabler for achieving this goal. Examples of applications for AWI’s rules-based approach include automating processes for file renaming for workflows that have strict file naming conventions, automatically unzipping zipped files, or sending files and metadata directly to a RIP for processing, eliminating multiple steps in the workflow. This type of automation can also be applied to digital workflows where there is no printed output.
