What is Web Services?
Web Services is Printing Services' online store.
What does Web Services allow me to do?
Web Services allows you to order a variety of printed materials. You choose what you want to order, personalize it where applicable, and view a proof right on your screen. You can also re-order items quickly and easily.
The system will allow you to order standard Memorial and Marine Institute business cards, letterhead and #10 envelopes with more products to be offered in the future. We welcome requests from departments who would like to see specific materials made available for ordering through Web Services, like department-specific business cards, forms or certificates just to name a few examples. If you have such a request, please let one of our customer service representatives know and we will work with you to make it happen.
What do I need to use Web Services?
Web Services can be accessed from any computer connected to the Memorial University network that is equipped with a web browser, Java and PDF viewer. Before you can use it, Printing Services must set up user and supervisor accounts and enter your department's address and billing information. We offer a short training session at the Printing Services building (see Locations to the left) to familiarize you with the service and answer any questions that may arise.
There are also online tutorials available which will walk you through Web Services' job ordering, tracking and approval processes. Please see the Guides and Tutorials section to view them.
How do I get set up with a Web Services account?
There are two main things we need to set you up with a Web Services account. They are:
- A list of people who will be using the system and their contact information. There are two types of people in Web Services: supervisors and users. Users do not have signing authority - they can place orders, but the order must be approved by a supervisor before the order goes through to Printing Services for processing. A supervisor is someone with signing authority and so can approve orders. They can also place orders which come straight through to us for processing. Every user needs at least one associated supervisor to approve their orders.
- A list of the FOAPAL numbers that you use to order printing as well as short descriptions. We put these FOAPAL numbers and descriptions into Web Services and you select the correct one from a drop-down list when you place an order. Different people in your department can have access to different sets of FOAPAL numbers if you prefer.
Please note: We can change/add/remove users or FOAPAL numbers for you at any time.
