Print MIS supplier Tharstern has added a remote-access functionality to its Tharstern MIS package, allowing customers to increase their estimating resources and give their team the ability to create quotes.
The Remote Access Portal is a browser-based tool that connects directly with the core MIS technology, allowing users to create estimates, RFQs, and orders in any location, on any device.
Companies can also share the portal with their clients, giving them the power to create quotes, place orders, and track deliveries. The tool is available free of charge to 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 MIS technology, which utilizes web-based and on-premise technologies. The core MIS sits on-site at a company’s business premises, alongside its production equipment, while users access it online using several 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 can 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.
