Canon U.S.A. and Partner Sepialine Introduce Two New Print Management Solutions
Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in imaging solutions, and Sepialine, Inc., today announced the immediate availability of Sepialine’s print accounting software for the Canon imagePROGRAF large format printer series. The new software extends Sepialine’s Argos Cost Recovery System by integrating directly with imagePROGRAF large format printers to provide detailed print records that include total ink consumption.
Inkjet printers such as Canon’s imagePROGRAF series serve a wide range of purposes, ranging from technical line drawings to full-color presentation materials. The versatility of inkjet printers presents a paradox: some inkjet printing consumes large amounts of ink and is, therefore, expensive. Other times, a print job requires less ink at a relatively low cost. Unless print tracking software can detect those differences in print jobs, usage reports do not accurately reflect total print costs. Sepialine’s new integration software solves the inkjet tracking dilemma by categorizing and determining the cost of print jobs based on ink consumption, resulting in precise and accurate cost reporting.
The new imagePROGRAF integration software is the latest addition to Sepialine’s extensive support for Canon products, which also includes the newly announced Argos Embedded Copy Tracking for Canon MEAP devices, a pure software solution for tracking Canon MFPs. Together, the imagePROGRAF and MEAP cost recovery products offer Canon dealers and customers a complete view of their equipment expenses.
