Salt Lake City, Utah, USA – SA International (SAi), the leading provider of software solutions for professional signmaking, wide-format digital printing and CAD/CAM machining industries, has announced the availability of SideKick – a convenient and easy-to-use job organization tool that helps sign and large format print businesses to effortlessly manage their end-to-end production operations, from quote creation to invoicing.
Simple to use, SideKick comes pre-loaded with a database of predefined products and finishing options, including average industry costs, to rapidly and accurately configure pricing, while factoring in materials, labor, commissions, discounts and taxes. Users can also tailor pricing for their own business. Via an intuitive quoting system, sign shops and large format print providers can quickly create professional and personalized PDF job quotes to send to customers within just a few minutes, based on size, quantity and finishing of the product.
SAi’s SideKick job management tool is designed to organize sign & display operations, by managing customers, generating quotes and tracking job progress
Thereafter, SideKick lets users organize account contacts, convert quotes into orders with one-click and track jobs through various production stages. This enables jobs to be rapidly exported into the invoicing process so that payments are made quicker and cashflow is improved.
“No one likes doing paperwork, but it’s necessary if you’re running a business. Our smaller customers, in particular, frequently tell us that administrative tasks are their least favorite and most time-consuming part of their jobs,” says Annette Plummer, VP Marketing, SAi.
“SAi SideKick effectively addresses our customers’ wider requirements and ensures hassle-free shop management at a low monthly operating cost,” Plummer adds. “The result is a more streamlined administrative process that ultimately saves business managers time.”
