THARSTERN LAUNCH NEW REMOTE ACCESS PORTAL AS PART OF A NEW HYBRID APPROACH TO MIS
Print MIS supplier Tharstern has added new remote-access functionality to their Tharstern MIS solution, allowing their customers to increase their estimating resources and give more of their team the ability to create quotes.
The Remote Access Portal is a browser-based tool that connects directly with the core MIS solution, allowing users to create estimates, RFQs, and orders in any location, on any device. Companies can also share the portal with their own clients, giving them the power to create quotes, place orders, and track deliveries. The tool is available free of charge to both new and existing customers, as part of Tharstern’s new SaaS subscription pricing structure.
This latest functionality is part of the company’s hybrid approach to its Tharstern MIS solution, which utilizes both web-based and on-premise technologies. The core MIS solution sits on-site at a company’s business premises, alongside their production equipment, while users access the solution online using a number of custom-designed applications that hook into the MIS core, including the existing Shop Floor Data Capture and Mobile Inventory tools. “We’re essentially giving our customers the best of both worlds by combining the accessibility and responsiveness of a cloud solution, with the control and integration capabilities of an on-premise solution. Users are able to take advantage of a very powerful and comprehensive MIS, using a user interface that’s designed specifically for their role,” said Lee Ward, Chief Revenue Officer at Tharstern.
Tharstern recently launched a separate MIS product for the label sector, Tharstern Cloud for Labels, but say that this new functionality demonstrates their ongoing commitment to their existing MIS solution: “We have completely separate teams working on these two products, and the Remote Access Portal is just one example of the new features and functionality we will be adding to the Tharstern MIS going forward.”
