Océ Offers ARC PlanWell EasyPrint Enabled Printers
Trumbull, CT (May 2009) – Océ, an international leader in digital document management, today announced that it is releasing an integration between its most popular monochrome print devices for facilities management (FM) applications, including the new Océ PlotWave 300 system, and ARC’s PlanWell EasyPrint software. This new functionality enables users at FM locations to easily print drawing files that are located in a PlanWell online planroom using the interface of the Océ device. From the Océ printer interface, it’s easy to navigate to the PlanWell planroom, select entire document sets, view and print them directly to the Océ device.
"Océ is pleased to announce support for the PlanWell EasyPrint application," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "With ARC’s innovative software, architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) customers now have the ability to print directly to a local Océ 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.
“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 Océ’s best and most popular equipment.”
From an Océ printer, a user can select documents located in the PlanWell planroom and, using an intuitive touch-screen display on the Océ PlotWave 300 system, can view and print these documents right on site. This expedites the availability of printed documents in remote locations and provides convenient, quick access to printed plan sets for a reprographer’s FM customers.
The interface to PlanWell EasyPrint is also available for the Océ TDS450 and Océ TDS700 via the Océ PowerLogic controller user interface.
