QUICK, EASY, CLEAN and the Only Program where you can see all inputs on the same screen

I've been using PSM for MANY years. I live in the program while I'm at work. When I started with the program we only had offset presses. PSM came with pre-installed presses that we were able to modify. It was much easier than starting from scratch. Over the years PSM changed with us. It's added templates for digital presses and large-format printing. The support is second to none.

Pros

Seeing all inputs on one screen. I dislike the drop-down menus on other programs. With Print Shop Manager I can see EVERYTHING without flipping through pages. Being able to have multiple quotes open on the same screen is also a huge plus. Sometimes I have old quotes for the same customer open just to make sure I'm not charging too much or too little on a new project.

Cons

It doesn't link to my website. Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a website, estimating software, MIS, and Accounting all operating as the same program. I haven't seen one setup yet that does everything good.

Not too Difficult to learn

We have saved so much time and our quotes are more consistent.

Pros

To be able to pull up previous orders and place another order off of it. I like that we are able to see the inventory available. The ease of converting a work order to an invoice is another great feature. Emailing quotes are made seamless once you have added the customers email in the data base. One click and the quote is off to the customer. Rich was extremely helpful and patient when we first installed the program. there were many questions and he returned our calls promptly.

Cons

Not having the same digital options on the Envelope work order to change click charges. You have to do the math and lock it in if you want to change the click charge to something different than the default.

Not a great fit for a one-two person shop

Pros

I like the features and found it useful for generating multiple estimates. Unlike most users (I think), my main use was to generate estimates before seeking a print shop for publishing. It was cool to be able to fiddle the elements and see the effect on cost estimates also a good way to ground truth when it came to haggling!

Cons

Again, maybe this is meant for a larger organization than mine and for a print shop rather than a person looking to job out to print shops. Still it was nifty and gave me very helpful insight into which options added costs to my job proposals.

Thank you Sally for taking the time to give us your professional feedback. I can see that PSM is probably a much stronger work horse than you would require in your business. We do, of course target users who have full printshop capabilities. We also have a couple of users who have only two people working their tails off to try and stay up with the work coming in. Since you took the time to get familiar with PSM, if you would like to do sales for PSM, we can work out some kind of commission plan for you. You can contact me direct. My email is rgiles@aacro.com Once again, thank you.

Great value.

I have been using the software for several years and find it very user friendly. It covers just about any kind of printing you can think of. I run a small print shop that does everything from business cards to full vehicle wraps. We also do mailings. This software handles it all. There are other choices that may offer more functions, but not at this price!

Pros

Ease of use.

Cons

Logo is a little funky. California raisin??

There's an odd little story behind the little raisin guy. I'll email you the details. Thank you for the review. Rich Giles President AACRO Computer Systems

Easy use with minimal IT support, it gets the job done.

Quick and easy quote, order and invoice system.

Pros

The fact that when you have a question or an issue, the product support is, quick, efficient and actually solves the issue.

Cons

Users that do not follow the proper procedures and cause most of the issues. I would like to see an easy auto export function of all data tables to a friendly format like .xlsx or .csv. Also an upgrade to the .pdf engine would be nice.

I needed a replacement invoicing program and after research on several other programs. chose PSM.

Pros

So many of the other invoicing programs available are complicated and clumsy. Maintenance is expensive. PSM delivers on ease of use and reasonable cost. Customer support rep. is AMAZING and always responsive to my suggestions and needs. He has never let me down. Regular upgrades keep it functional and up to date. We were able to add a custom report at a reasonable cost. It meets our needs nicely as we did not require a Web submission component and did not want a cloud-based program.

Great Product for our Printing Company

This product can help transform the way you do order entry and quoting. The time you save basically will pay for the product. If you ever have any problems or suggestions they take care of you in a timely manner.

Thanks for the review Shallon. You know that if there is ever a function that you need Print Shop Manager to perform, we can make it happen. It's requests from users like you that have made our software evolve into the function rich product that it is now.

PrintShop Manager works for me

I like PrintShop Manager. It is relatively easy to use. It is nice to see what jobs we have and what stage they are in at any particular moment. Rich is always eager to help if we have a problem.
