ARC's AbacusPCR Software to Be Distributed by Oce North America

ARC has announced that the US Wide Format Printing Systems division of Oce, a Canon Group Company, has added AbacusPCR, ARC's print cost recovery software, to its portfolio for tracking and capturing print costs within an office environment.

"We're pleased that Oce has chosen AbacusPCR to add value to their printing and imaging offerings," said Rahul Roy, chief technology officer of ARC. "Oce has always developed their solutions to enhance document management and production, and by adding print tracking and reimbursable cost analysis with Abacus, we're sure that customers in any business environment will be quick to recognize its value as a significant business process improvement tool."

"With the large amount of decentralized printing now done in AE firms and the need to accurately track and recover costs, Abacus is a great addition to our product portfolio," said Bob Honn, director of marketing services, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Oce North America. "The functionality of AbacusPCR will enable our customers to not only track Oce devices but also all non-Oce narrow and wide-format devices."

Used for keeping track of printing costs and reimbursable print jobs, AbacusPCR software is easily configured to fit into any office environment. From rules-based printing and workstation billing pop-ups, to broad administration tools and its characteristic easy-to-use interface, printing activity can be tracked closely, analyzed for better equipment fleet management and cost controls, or used to capture reimbursable print jobs for a variety of industries.

AbacusPCR was recently upgraded to include print retrieval functions, rules-based printing, color and black & white recognition, phone call tracking, and greater third-party product integration.
