MyBooks is Friesens’ online site developed for publishing professionals who want to save time and have instant access to information and tools for managing projects. We are pleased to provide this tool to serve our customers in meaningful ways.
Who likes waiting in line? The reality is we all have to wait at times, but most of us don’t like it. At Friesens, we have developed tools to provide our customers with ways to “skip the lines.” Here are some ways MyBooks can help you with that.
- MyProofs Direct – quick upload and online proofs
- MyBooks Proof Corrections – automates getting proofs into prepress
- Tracking Shipments – instant feedback on shipping status
- Fulfillment Tool – shipments from storage packed and shipped within twenty-four hours
We developed this part our MyBooks tool to allow instant processing of your files. You can upload your files for singlecolour trade books and we can process them almost instantly. By using this tool, you will receive online proofs within hours of uploading files.
If you are interested in using this process, contact your sales
rep and we can provide you with the details involved.
MYBOOKS PROOF CORRECTIONS
When you view proofs through MyBooks and submit corrections using this tool, your changes are moved directly into our prepress queue. With this tool, you can also review the preflight report. If there are any concerns noted during preflight, this tool will allow you to respond to those items at the same time as reviewing the proofs.
In addition to submitting the correction request, you can see the history of changes requested in case you want to review the details of your request.
You can view your shipments and confirm the details of your packages at any time using this tool. No waiting for a response, but rather you have instant access to your packing slips and links to carriers’ tracking systems.
We have many customers who take advantage of our storage and fulfillment services. The fulfillment tool helps manage inventory, contains an address database, and provides important shipping and delivery details.
Other tools such as those for creating templates and viewing quotes and invoices are still available. If you have questions as you use these new tools and services, please contact Friesens technical support at 866.324.6401 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year Friesens produces thousands of titles covering a variety of topics and genres. It is this variety that creates an exciting and dynamic work environment for all the staff that work with your project. The tie that binds all projects together is that they each have three distinct stages that they go through while being produced: before files are supplied, preflight and proofing, and finally printing, binding, and shipping.
