P3 Software Inc.
has announced the release of P3Expeditor. The software is designed to aid graphic designers, ad agencies print brokers and corporate print buyers with print procurement.
P3Expeditor automates the creation of print job specifications, manages the quote process request and tracks production management. It stores all information in a single database.
P3Expeditor doesn’t require that printers “sign up” to use the system — printers get e-mail or fax communications for P3Expeditor and send back price quotes through whatever means they like. The developer claims that print buyers can be up and running in about 15 minutes with P3Expeditor. This is a Mac implementation of PC software that’s been around for almost a decade.
P3Expeditor has been released for Mac OS X, and Mac OS 8.6 and higher. It’s available for purchase and download from the P3 Software Web site. You can download a 30-day free trial license as a new user, and either buy a P3 Expeditor license or pay as you go. A full license costs US$599 per user; the “Pay As You Go” license costs $260 per user per year. Site licenses are also available.
