Technical Specifications

Using OctoBoost as an E-Commerce platform and print efficiency tool is a drastic step for its users, but not an uncompromising one. Assuming that 100% of all jobs in a commercial print shop will be booked online would be unrealistic.

While the potential for optimization increases as more print jobs can be fully processed by the OctoBoost modules, there are two implementation alternatives:

All jobs are captured completely by OctoBoost.

Conventional orders are manually captured in the print shop’s ERP system and re-captured in an internal OctoBoost shop. All digital and conventional orders automatically end up in the Print Efficiency cockpit and immediately benefit from OctoBoost’s optimization, including dashboards.

OctoBoost supports printers with system connections via our recommended integration partners.
