Finally, a harmonised and intelligent
way to print. IPCS™ as developed by Print Associates
ApS in Denmark, is virtually turning your documents into
"intelligent" ones. IPCS™ will allow you
to link default printing rules to certain document profiles
you defined in a database. Based on the recognition of the
document, IPCS™ will automatically, without user-intervention
and using the manufacturer's printer drivers, apply a "print
rule". This set of rules (defined by you) will use
the most cost-effective way of printing a document using
the already present printer features like duplex, two-up
printing and toner-save, all in one go.
on cost and the environment
The concept we apply is that we
want you to link the cost of printing a
document to its value for your organisation.
This means that low-value documents (i.e. documents with
a short life-cycle or of limited interest) can be printed
in the most cost-effective way. You can save up to 70% of
the printing cost by applying duplex, toner-save and two-up
printing - all automatically! You will not only save hard
cash, but you'll be able to reduce the stress you cause
on the environment. Paper production is for instance as
energy consuming as the production of steel, not to mention
the toxicity of toner! Ever wondered why there are no toner
factories left in Europe and why they have been 'exported'
to countries like China and Taiwan...?
IPCS™ will work on any platform
using MS Windows print servers, using any kind of printer
and using the manufacturer's drivers. This makes IPCS™
'future-proof"! Any change or addition the printer
manufacturers build into their drivers will de accessible
by IPCS™ and can be linked to your default print-rule
for a document.
