HP has announced that its Designjet web-connected printer portfolio will offer direct access to ARC's cloud-based PlanWell Collaborate project collaboration application.
Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) project managers can use the touchscreen of HP Designjet ePrinters to access, print from and scan to PlanWell Collaborate. The integrated solution shortens project cycles up to 30 percent with one-step markup distribution and mobile printing capabilities. It also can lower costs by reducing travel and courier use and eliminate errors caused by multiple document repositories.
“Collaborative design is highly complex, involving as many as 30 people and up to 500 plans per project,” said Alex Moñino, worldwide sales and marketing manager, Large Format Printing, HP. “Together, HP and ARC are providing a unique solution to streamline the paper to digital workflow and help customers distribute and print content through the cloud directly from the HP Designjet ePrinter, without the need of a PC.”
HP also announced integration with ARC’s AbacusPCR solution for the HP Designjet T2300 eMFP and HP Designjet T790 and T1300 ePrinters. With AbacusPCR, HP users can easily track and recover printing, copying and scanning costs through the printers’ color touchscreen with no need for external lock-up devices.
PlanWell Collaborate and AbacusPCR for HP Designjet web-connected printers are available now in the US exclusively through ARC, the nation's leading document solutions company for the AEC industry.
