• MiraPACKAGE: An insert planning and inventory system designed to meet the demanding needs of newspaper production facilities. Offers control of insert orders, distribution and postal integration, inventory, and inserting production schedule.
• MiraSTORE: An insert tracking and inventory system that reduces waste and creates accountability with barcode inventory tracking. Designed to offer improved inventory control to keep better track of inserts from initial order, receiving, warehousing and insertion.
“Our deep expertise and unique capabilities in retrofitting out-of-date newspaper printing machines with our modern, serviceable control software is a valuable service for newspaper publishers who rely on high-functioning production lines,” said Judah Holstein, Miracom President and Founder. “Frequently, it can be difficult to find servicing for antiquated machines, and the alternative of purchasing a replacement machine is an untenable cost.
