David Gagnon, President and CMO of allura printing inc. talks about how Happyfox helped streamline their operations process and managing their print job statuses.
A printing project involves many stages from initial order, pre-press, press, binding, finishing, and final delivery. Our challenge was to bring more structure to the organization of information, managing resources (staff and equipment) and tracking the progress of a project at each of its stages. We were looking for a centralized system to help us manage both printing projects and customer support.
We use HappyFox not just to manage customers inquiries, but also as an internal job ticket management system that helps us manage and track the status of our print jobs. HappyFox help desk has helped us streamline collaboration between our operations and sales team. Keeping our clients updated on the status of a project has never been easier.
Results & Benefits
Thanks to HappyFox, we have moved from using a production board to a ticketing system which enables us to keep track of projects anywhere, anytime. Every job goes into HappyFox, so as a tracking and management tool, it helps us 100% of the time and never lets us down. This also means that when a customer wants to know the status of a job, we have the answer at our fingertips.
