American Reprographics Company announced the availability of a new version of PlanWell EasyPrint that integrates seamlessly into Oce print devices including the new Oce PlotWave 300 system. The new software is being demonstrated at the International Reprographics Association Conference and Tradeshow in Pittsburgh, PA.
The PlanWell EasyPrint application allows users to login to PlanWell Enterprise online planrooms directly from a printer's on-board touch screen. Once logged in, documents can be selected, viewed, assembled into a set and printed immediately on the printer via an interface and step-by-step workflow similar to a bank's automated teller machine (ATM). This makes printed documents immediately available in any location and provides convenient access to plan sets for project trailers, remote offices and other on-site service installations.
Through a partnership with Oce, the PlanWell EasyPrint application is integrated directly with the Oce PowerLogic controller user interface, and is available for the Oce PlotWave 300 system, Oce TDS450, and Oce TDS700 printers.
"Coupling a printer and an online planroom where documents are stored creates a powerful on-demand system for acquiring prints at a moment's notice, regardless of location," said Jon Styrlund, product manager for PlanWell EasyPrint. "While the application has been available on other devices for some time, we expect even wider adoption by combining it with some of Oce's best and most popular equipment."
"Oce is pleased to announce support for PlanWell EasyPrint," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Oce North America. "With ARC's innovative software, AEC customers now have the ability to print directly to a local Oce printer from the ARC online planroom, saving the time and cost associated with printing documents at a central location and shipping them to a job site."
