IC Simplicity is the Imaging Centre’s exclusive online web to print ordering system, which was launched at this year’s PG Live. Since the show we have had more than 20 card publishers going live on the system.

These customers have benefited in a number of ways most notably in the reduction of turnaround times, accuracy and stock management while still receiving the same high quality product they always have.
We believe that using IC Simplicity will give benefits to all card publishers. With this in mind we have designed three levels of Simplicity to cater for publishers both large and small.
Simplicity has already produced nearly half a million cards, printing orders ranging in size from as few as 6 cards to over 10,000. We know this because the Simplicity system allows us to analyse the data. This means that as well as being an online ordering service, Simplicity is able to give you real information about your products.
To find out more about how IC Simplicity could benefit your business or to arrange a visit so you can come and see it working, contact us on 01622 871449 or email adam@theimagingcentre.co.uk
