Canon Solutions America, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc., today announced the launch of the new Océ PrintSight software developed by Canon Solutions America to provide print-for-pay businesses an effective tool to monitor their Océ Arizona, Océ Colorado, and Océ ColorWave printers.
The Océ PrintSight software will enable print-for-pay business owners and their production staff to closely monitor many important aspects of their Océ Arizona, Océ Colorado, and Océ ColorWave printer fleet from anywhere on their network. Océ PrintSight displays a range of data in an intuitive user interface, allowing for real time reporting on ink usage, media type printed, square footage, print time, machine status, and more.
Help Increase Visibility, Increase Profitability
To help better determine production schedules, machine utilization, and identify the printers that still have capacity should print volumes increase, Océ PrintSight provides the amount of time it takes to print an image. Furthermore, it can instantly calculate the cost of a job by enabling print providers to enter their ink cost per liter and media cost.
Overall, the combination of Océ printers and the Océ PrintSight software makes for a valuable addition for print providers interested in quickly and easily knowing exactly what is going on in their production environment. Océ PrintSight gives print shop owners details to make informed decisions, allowing them to better utilize their printers and improve profitability while maintaining competitive pricing.
“What the Océ PrintSight software has now brought to our customers is more control over their printing environment to better support the dynamic applications they are producing on their Océ devices,” said Robert Reddy, Senior Vice President, Large Format Solutions, Operations, Canon Solutions America. “We have amazed our customers with the incredible Océ technology, and decided to take it one step further by developing a software that would help take productivity to the next level.”
Océ PrintSight connects to Océ devices via customers’ ethernet networks, allowing them to quickly identify the printer by name, IP address, and even see individual serial numbers and current status. The Océ PrintSight software can be installed on one or more connected PCs, so all internal stakeholders can readily see the data that’s most important to them.
