The idea for Ordant was born when Usman Ali was working in the print industry.
He was a key player in implementing a successful online Print on Demand system for his
company. While researching different off-the-shelf solutions for this project,
he observed that in today's competitive marketplace, it is not realistic for any
company to do only one kind of printing process. He realized very quickly that a
customizable framework was in demand, which could easily adapt to perform the unique
functionality of each company and is readily available without any additional costs
related to building such a tool from scratch. Usman envisioned an ideal print solution
would be somewhere between a typical out-of-the-box solution and a proprietary solution
that is built from scratch.
Todd Sterling is another key player in the making of Ordant.
He has been making websites and web applications since the time when Netscape
ruled the internet and has worked on successful projects for large corporations such
as NBC and Chipscale magazine as well as small startups. In his vast experience
in trying to come up with custom solutions for many different types of print companies,
Todd witnessed the speed and extent to which many of these companies change their
processes, in order to keep up with the new market competition and customer needs.
This in turn requires a more sophisticated print solution with unique features for
calculating these complex estimates. Todd was in sync with Usman's idea and wanted to
build a solution which was scalable, modular and can easily adapt to the new and
changing industry requirements.
Together we have built a framework which we are using ourselves. Ordant can be fully
customized to any company's need. It can calculate the most complicated costs for any
custom job in any type of industry. Its easy user interface allows even an inexperienced
user to perform complex estimates within minutes. Ordant is an optimized solution, to
help you do your tasks in the most time and cost efficient manner. Since it is a cloud
based system, it does not require any software installation, which allows you to save
the IT costs associated with running your own server. Ordant enables you use your time
where it really matters; your customers and your production processes.
