DirectSmile updates cross media software

DirectSmille has released v6 of its eponymous cross media software, with improved CRM and Web to print capabilities. CRM systems can now be integrated into marketing campaigns, with bi-directional synchronisation so that any new data gathered from the marketing campaign can be automatically added to the existing CRM database.
There’s a new HTML-based web to print editor for online design of print documents. Visitors to websites that use the Editor will be able to personalise existing designs and to arrange their own layouts.
Another new feature, Professional Workflow, helps users to individually schedule the distribution of print data that are generated through web applications.
It also allows for search engine optimisation of websites. It is now possible to merge static content and interactive elements, such as surveys or contact forms, within one data-driven webpage. Advanced users of the new version will also have the ability to expand the range of functions even further by adding their own program codes to create new modules for dedicated tasks.







Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.

However, there are costs involved in travelling to cover events, as well as maintaining this site, not to mention the time that it takes to carry out research, check facts and interview people. So if you value this work, then please help to maintain it and keep it free to read.
