Solopress has developed Soloflo, described as a ‘groundbreaking’ API designed to vastly improve third-party print procurement processes.

Soloflo has been designed with flexible integration in mind, facilitating effortless updates and working with existing SKUs. Moreover, as Soloflo eradicates manual order inputs, it means resellers of Solopress products no longer have to manually transcribe customer orders onto the Solopress’s platform or liaise with account managers.

As a result, Soloflo means businesses that sell print produced by Solopress can ‘effortlessly’ channel orders straight from their customer into the Solopress workflow, ‘dramatically enhancing accuracy and efficiency.’

Solopress managing director Simon Cooper commented, ‘In the print industry, where timing, accuracy and efficiency are critical, Soloflo will be a game-changer. We’ve designed it with our customers in mind, especially those who resell printed materials. It makes their ordering process much more straightforward and less prone to errors.’

Soloflo also serves businesses requiring a ready-made plugin or those needing a bespoke, coded API for integration.

Mr Cooper noted, ‘While our primary audience may be print resellers, we recognise that our customers may define themselves differently, such as media procurement agencies or tech start-ups. Soloflo caters to anyone who needs print production and recognises the benefits of automating the ordering process.’

He continued, ‘Soloflo’s core benefit lies in its ability to allow orders received by customers to flow directly into our system. Its flexibility and convenience represent a significant advantage that will make Solopress a more sought-after print supplier to customers who prefer to order in this way.

‘System updates and changing SKUs have been a common frustration with other print APIs. Soloflo alleviates this issue with a user-friendly, easy-to-maintain system that integrates whatever SKUs the customer already uses. Importantly, we commit to automating updates and providing advance warnings of any price changes,’ stated Mr Cooper.

Solopress is to debut Soloflo at The Print Show 2023.
