Implement a powerful, affordable web-to-print solution
No matter how much you print in your CRD or in-plant environment, you want it fast, easy and economical. But that doesn't always happen if you accept jobs by walk-in, email, FTP sites or flash drives. Fortunately, CopyNet, offered by PrintNet in partnership with Ricoh, simplifies printing for everyone involved:
- Customized web-to-print storefronts enable job submission from anywhere.
- Job details are locked down in the online order form.
- Job Viewer tool lets users proof job instructions, minimizing errors.
- Files of any type arrive ready to run with embedded JDF-compliant print instructions.
- Electronically stored forms can be printed with the push of a button.
Automate job submission
Many companies don't install web-to-print due to cost and complexity. CopyNet is 100% cloud based, which makes it easier to deploy and much less expensive than onsite solutions. PrintNet provides a web-to-print solution designed for - and easily integrated into - any corporate business that has an in-plant print center or CRD. Additionally, PrintNet recognizes the special needs of vertical markets and has added customization for:
- Corporate in-plants environments and CRDs
- K-12 and higher education
- Government centers
- Law firms
- Real estate companies
Convert files to PDF automatically
CopyNet automatically converts up to 340 file types into ripped PDFs during submission. There's no need to buy conversion software or add an extra production step — and no hassles with email attachments or file size restrictions.
Centralize print management
Use the digital dashboard to centrally view and manage print jobs. You can sort jobs in multiple ways, using criteria such as:
- Date needed
- Number of impressions
The JDF-compliant job tickets are pushed automatically to systems like EFI® Fiery® or RICOH TotalFlow® Production Manager, but you can print on any connected output device, from anywhere.
Simplify invoicing and charge backs
CopyNet centralizes and automates the preparation of invoices, reports and chargebacks by department, code or user — minimizing mistakes and saving time, as opposed to manual reporting. The software organizes and exports information in PDF or. csv formats.
Save time, save money in the cloud
With 100% cloud-based web-to-print, you avoid expensive investments and dealing with software installations and hardware compatibility issues. Every task happens instantly, and CopyNet works with all brands of printers — so you're up and running the day you sign up.
Save time with software shortcuts
The setup assistants in CopyNet reduce the number of steps required to complete tasks like creating business cards and customizing a portal. Setting up your portal, for example, is as simple as completing your company profile, uploading your logo and answering questions about workflow and pricing.
Work with JDF-compliant tickets
Job tickets arrive in the print center with the ripped, ready-to-run PDF and the original file — along with pricing, workflow steps and job instructions — so any field can be changed on the fly. Substitute one type of binding for another instantly, and inform job submitters of changes and job status updates by email automatically.
Get used to thinking “it’s integrated”
With some solutions, you have to piecemeal the parts and deal with possible incompatibilities and points of failure. Not so with CopyNet, which offers:
- Integration and single sign-on with LDAP, MIS and ERP systems.
- Integration tools for storefronts, catalogs, languages and more.
- Built-in, modifiable standard pricing.
- Unlimited reporting in subscription levels (except Light).
