InfoPrint Solutions, a Ricoh company, announces enhancements that further improve productivity for companies using the InfoPrint 5000 inkjet system for a variety of color and monochrome applications. With the InfoPrint Ink Suite, the company is taking the next step to integrate existing stand-alone ink management tools into its InfoPrint ProcessDirector workflow solution, in addition to adding complementary new functions. Integrating these already proven tools and functions with InfoPrint ProcessDirector enables more automated job preparation and management, increasing efficiency.
Customers can choose to implement any of the following Ink Suite tools that are initially being integrated with InfoPrint ProcessDirector:
Enfocus PitStop Connect automates the preparation of PDF files for print, increasing accuracy and repeatability by eliminating manual steps.
Ink Savvy optimizes InfoPrint 5000 color files to enhance output quality and reduce ink usage, while maintaining the overall “look and feel” of the document.
Ink Estimation enables ink job cost estimates to be quickly generated for PDF or AFP files, customized based on the InfoPrint 5000 settings.
Preview Print allows customers to print sample pages of a job on the InfoPrint 5000 with key print setting information on a banner page, for review, before printing the entire job, and for tracking purposes.
In addition, the existing versions of Enfocus PitStop Connect, Ink Estimation and Ink Savvy will be offered as standalone tools, as well as the InfoPrint 5000 Ink Monitor feature which tracks actual ink consumption during print.
