Powerful Online Editor

Asanti StoreFront’s Online Editor enables print buyers to customize printed products online. While the occasional user only needs to enter a few lines of text to create the weekly sales promotion poster, frequent buyers will be delighted by the advanced editing features for adapting point-of-sales displays or other visually rich prints.

Shipping costs per square meter

Accurate pricing is crucial in today’s competitive print market. That’s why product and shipping costs are now based on the dimensions of customers’ products, decreasing as orders grow bigger. Even the pricing of options such as grommets or varnish are dimension-based. Asanti StoreFront automatically groups different order items together to optimize packaging.

New feature ‘Save For Quote’

Thanks to an added functionality called ‘Save For Quote’, customers such as resellers and agencies now immediately see the total cost for a range of products, including shipping,. Consequently, simple sales proposals no longer need human intervention and sales representatives can focus on customer satisfaction and offering value.
