Ironsides Technology Celebrates 10th Anniversary Offering Automated Production Tracking to Printing, Mailing, and Fulfillment Industries

News & Events

Company to host webinar and preview new business process management software with customers over the next few months.

Westford, MA. June 7, 2017. Ironsides Technology is proud to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its Ironsides APT™ (automated production tracking) software. Ironsides APT allows the printing, mailing, fulfillment, and packaging industries to monitor each individual print job across the production workflow. To commemorate the anniversary, the company will host a webinar with one of their largest European users to discuss how print and mail operations can maintain document integrity, improve productivity and increase profitability. Webinar attendees will learn how complex, time sensitive and demanding SLA compliance documents are produced efficiently, with real-time visibility and control.

A decade ago transactional printing expert, Bill Riley joined forces with software engineer, Sean Zhang to form Ironsides Technology with the goal of delivering a robust, open and agnostic tracking software system that would work across any and all print production: from bindery to insertion through the finished production process.

Over the past 10 years, Ironsides has seen the transactional, commercial, fulfillment and direct mail print markets evolve from large print runs to small quantity, high-frequency, personalized production print runs with much tighter SLAs. Add to this an increase in document security and compliance requirements and today’s print jobs are more complicated and harder to track requiring advanced software that can monitor individual jobs at a piece level, at any point in the production process. Ironsides APT is a proven technology that can help printers meet strict regulatory requirements while providing a central dashboard with real-time production data to ensure each job meets demanding customer SLAs and is produced efficiently and on time.

“Inkjet technology has been a game-changing, disruptive technology for the printing industry altering the way people think about printed communications,” says Bill Riley, President of Ironsides Technology. “While this technology brings new growth opportunities, printers continuously tell us how difficult it is to track and reconcile the huge numbers of smaller jobs driven by new applications. Ironsides APT provides the visibility required to track each job in order to improve operational productivity. As printers make strategic technology investments over the next few years, Ironsides Technology is well positioned to become the software of choice to help printers optimize productivity, maintain document integrity and compliance to grow their profitability.”

Enhancing Ironsides APT technology to meet new customer challenges

Building on the success of Ironsides APT, Ironsides Technology is developing new software enhancements that will help customers better analyze, plan and schedule jobs using the data collected with Ironsides APT. Ironsides will begin previewing new business process management functionality with select customers over the next few months. 

“Today’s printers are running hundreds or even thousands of jobs each week and it is physically impossible to manually track the true cost of each item,” continues Riley. “While estimation systems help, they are just that – estimations. New versions of Ironsides APT software will help monetize and add value to the data captured from Ironsides APT to understand actual business costs. This will help limit the risks printers incur when investing in new inkjet systems and print applications.”

Ironsides Technology Expands North American Operations and Launches New Website

News & Events

Daniel Chevalier joins as Vice President to address increased demand for its automated production tracking system due to a resurgence in print.

Westford, MA. March 16, 2017. Ironsides Technology, a leading provider of automated production tracking systems for the printing, mailing, fulfillment, and packaging industries, announced it is expanding its North American operations, naming Daniel Chevalier as Vice President of Sales. Chevalier joins the company following record sales for its Ironsides APT ™ (Automated Production Tracking) system. Chevalier recently served as Executive Director Sales with Bell and Howell and has extensive experience in the print and mailing industries. He is responsible for growing the company’s customer-centric sales organization. To support the company’s growing brand, Ironsides also launched a refreshed new look, logo and website to provide customers with information on automated tracking and output management solutions for end-to-end document production management.

The commercial printing industry is experiencing a resurgence in the demand for printed materials as advances in inkjet technology help make personalized documents and mailers more cost effective. This brings a new level of creativity to printed documents making it easier to create impactful, color documents tailored to individuals. As commercial printers make strategic investments in inkjet technology, they are also investing in output management software to improve operational oversight and to be able to track material through the production process down to the page level.

“We see tremendous opportunity for Ironsides APT to help printers optimize their investments in inkjet systems,” says Bill Riley, President of Ironsides Technology. “Dan Chevalier has a proven track record of listening to customers and helping them to improve their operations in the transaction and direct mail space.  His expertise will be instrumental in helping our customers successfully implement inkjet technology and profitably grow their businesses.”

“I am excited to be joining Ironsides as it embarks on an aggressive growth strategy,” says Chevalier. “The company has a strong reputation for integrity and quality. I look forward to helping document production companies use Ironsides APT to automate their output management processes, creating more value for their organizations and their customers.”

Refreshed Company Website Supports Company Growth

To support the company’s growth strategy, it has launched a refreshed brand including logo, marketing materials and a completely redesigned website. The new site offers customers and partners easy access to product information, videos and customer case studies.  

According to Riley the new website reflects the company’s commitment to delivering robust and reliable software. The new logo draws inspiration from the famous USS Constitution naval vessel which was nick-named ‘Old Ironsides’ because cannon balls appeared to bounce off her sides. This symbolizes the inherent strength of the Ironsides APT system.

“Today’s commercial printers and mailers are processing more jobs and are subject to increasing regulations,” continued Riley. “They need software systems that are open and reliable which work with their production systems. The new branding showcases our ability to deliver software that customers can count on to work as advertised with minimal downtime.  This approach has been the cornerstone of our success and why customers trust us to deliver automated production tracking solutions that provide real business value to their document production operations.”

Ironsides APT helps companies make business-changing decisions. The Ironsides APT command and control dashboard provides instant access to real-time data collection with analytics that provide insights empowering businesses with a real competitive advantage, while expanding business opportunities. Ironsides APT optimizes productivity and document integrity for print, mail, fulfillment, and packaging operations. The system is ideal for companies managing multiple jobs and requirements within a production run. With hybrid mail solutions on the rise, document processors using Ironsides APT can connect to all document production devices – regardless of brand or model – for real-time output management automation, production control, integrity verification and compliance reporting. Ironsides APT tracks individual pieces of every job, meeting necessary audit requirements. It also provides operators with the production benchmarking analytics needed to optimize business performance for document processing and distribution.
