SpencerMetrics Announces Major Upgrade of CONNECT at Drupa 2016

Melville, NY – 26 May 2016 – SpencerMetrics LLC, the leading provider of real-time press management systems, is announcing the drupa release of a major upgrade to its advanced analytics software, CONNECT.

With CONNECT v5.1, SpencerMetrics is meeting the demands for automation and real-time information delivery. Providing customers with detailed knowledge of non-revenue producing tasks – information not available through typical Print MIS. By continuing to enhance the ease of data collection, facilitate the sharing of operator knowledge, increase the depth of actionable information through data analysis, and simplify executive reporting. CONNECT helps press shops to improve uptime and drive down costs.

This new CONNECT version expands automatic data transfer integration with press shop equipment from various manufacturers. Users can now receive analytical reports right in their email box at any chosen frequency. Users with many devices can now preset device groups enabling quick selection for analyses, group comparisons, and email reporting. New system features provide deeper, real-time insights into the financial impact of uptime and downtime, providing value and cost metrics – even opportunity cost estimates.

Consistent with the SpencerMetrics development strategy, most upgrades were suggested by system users. The value of these new features and enhancements is significant, and SpencerMetrics has incorporated them into the product as part of its free upgrade policy.

“Our mission is to help print production customers excel through the value of knowledge-based decision-making backed by real-time data and analysis. Decreasing downtime costs and increasing revenue-producing uptime. Our focus is on delivering innovative systems that enable the recapture of the millions of dollars that are lost each year during non-revenue producing activities,” said David R Spencer, CEO. “CONNECT has something for everyone – automated press integration gives operators a very simple data collection interface. Real-time reports give shop floor managers complete visibility over multi-vendor equipment, multiple shifts, even multiple sites. Management appreciates the detailed real-time reporting, financial insights, and especially the increased ROI and lowered costs,” added Cathy Fiasconaro, Vice President.

SpencerMetrics will be demonstrating CONNECT v5.1 at drupa 2016 via private appointment; please contact spencermetrics@spencer.com to arrange a convenient time. For those not attending drupa, demonstrations can be provided to interested parties via private web presentations.
