Under the partnership,SmartBlast.com will offer suppliers SmartProofing.com (www.smartproofing.com), powered by PROOF-it-ONLINE, for the goal of reducing job costs, turnaround times, and errors that result from traditional proofing processes.
“The promotional-products industry is time-sensitive and fast-paced,” says Michael Ryan, president of SmartBlast.com. “As a result of faster turnaround demands from distributors, suppliers need to accelerate the proof-approval process and reduce costs at the same time.
