American Reprographics Announces Launch of PlanWell EasyPrint

Thursday, May 29, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

WALNUT CREEK, CA, May 28, 2008  -- American Reprographics Company, the nation's leading provider of reprographics services and technology, announced the availability PlanWell EasyPrint for KIP at the recent International Reprographics Association Conference and Tradeshow in Las Vegas May 13-15, 2008. Through a partnership with KIP, the new EasyPrint application is integrated directly with the KIP IPS MF Wide Format System. It allows users to select and immediately print documents from PlanWell Enterprise planrooms utilizing KIP's unique touch-screen interface.

Debuted during the tradeshow on the new KIP 3100 IPS system, PlanWell EasyPrint for KIP lists project planrooms on a single page. Projects, project information and documents are all accessed through a simple easy-to-use workflow that follows a logical progression for printing. Documents can be selected, viewed, assembled into a set and printed immediately on the printer with just a few touches on the screen.

"PlanWell Enterprise is a sophisticated and comprehensive document management tool with tremendous capabilities," said Jon Styrlund, product manager for PlanWell EasyPrint. "But on the jobsite or in an office, often all users want is to select and print their documents. That was the premise we started with -- what would a reprographic print kiosk look like? Something that an engineer, sub-contractor or admin person would use in an office or a job trailer to get a few prints, or maybe a set or two? Judging from the overwhelming response we got at the IRgA tradeshow, I think we delivered a product that makes PlanWell Enterprise accessible to a lot more users."

Given the depth and administrative power built into the PlanWell Enterprise online planroom application, the PlanWell EasyPrint interface has been thoughtfully redesigned to accommodate the touch-and-print utility of the new application. Viewing and printing features are easily accessible through an interface and step-by-step workflow similar to a bank's automated teller machine (ATM).
