Printing Services and LTS Partner to Offer Online Order Site

Printing and Mailing Services and LTS work together to develop a user-friendly, convenient, online order site for the Lehigh community.

In the spring of 2006, the departmental planning committee, headed by Glenn Strause, director of Printing & Mailing, set their departmental goals for the year ahead. One of the goals for the department was to implement an on-line order site for the Lehigh community.

Prepress and graphics specialist, Julie Scheller, started to work with Keith Erekson, LTS, senior computing consultant, on the initial concept in March 2007. The site progressed and new features were added as Julie and Keith continually tested for functionality and ease of use. “On the Lehigh campus we need to be compatible with a variety of computing systems and programs. Our goal was to make the site fully functional and user-friendly for all faculty, staff, and students on campus,” Julie says.

Named Easy Online Order, the web site allows users to choose all the options available on the Printing Work Order form. Users can also upload files to a personalized folder, order copies and stationery, send mailing lists, and even choose paper types, colors, and binding options. Once customers send the job or order an item, they receive a confirmation email that shows everything was submitted correctly. Printing Services also offers delivery, so if people use Easy Online Order, and then opt for free delivery, they literally never have to leave their desk.

“Partnering with LTS has been a huge positive in this venture. Not only are we using Lehigh resources and technology, but working with someone who knows Lehigh and the needs of the Lehigh community has been a big plus for the entire project,” Glenn says.

Along with Easy Online Order, Printing Services is also offering EasyDeals, which are pricing specials for certain orders. Right now, they are offering EasyDeals on promotional items and stationery packages for faculty and staff.

Easy Online Order is available now on the Printing and Mailing website. It’s completely secure within Lehigh, and users must have a Lehigh ID and password to access its features.
