manage your workflow

There are lots of clever software apps on the market to take care of the things you do every day. We’ve put all the important things in one place, in the Nettl system’s back office. We’ve been developing it for over two decades, so we’ve learnt a thing or two along the way about how to save a few minutes here and a few hours there.

The Nettl system connects you to clients. Online payments. File uploads. Online Proposals. Proof approvals. Invoice downloads. Let clients do the self-service things they want to do, so you can spend time on the important value-added things.

Nettl studios might have hundreds of jobs on the go at once. Some need design. Others need to be file checked. They’ll be waiting for proof sign-offs. And there will be pdfs ready to send to production.

Nettl’s system has a clever way of juggling all these jobs. We call it Control Desk. It’s the workflow. Visually. On one screen. Jobs are sorted into columns and users move them inline with progress. Drag a card to another column to change its status. Assign it to someone by dropping in on their face to the right. Drag to the special drop zones on the left to do a task automatically.

Production Dashboard

How do you manage your workflow today? Nettl system users get access to our Production Dashboard. It’s a kanban card-based system. First, there’s orders and files To Accept. Then jobs ready To Make. When an operator starts a job, the card moves to In Progress, adorned with their smiling face. When all steps are complete, it’ll move To Despatch, ready to print shipping labels.

The dashboard is perfect for touch devices, like iPads or Amazon Fire tablets. Working live means the team see what needs to be done, in real time. All the information they need is just a click away.
