KEY FEATURES General
Automatic setup & inline finishing
– Dashboard: The newly integrated dashboard helps keep track of orders and outstanding tasks. The calendar shows the orders by delivery date, order date, or print volume. An overview of recent and new orders as well as orders in progress is also provided. – MIS/ERP integration: Via a CSV file, print data can be exported from the application to MIS and ERP systems. – Status tracking: Customers can easily be informed that their order has arrived and can be kept advised of the status of their print job. Operators simply choose from a list of work steps and corresponding status types that they want to work with. All they need to do is create a suitable e-mail message for each one. The messages are then generated and sent to customers automatically.
– Automatic interpretation: The job ticket is automatically interpreted by the output device, doing away with the need to manually configure the printer driver. – PDF workflow: This provides enhanced processing speed compared with previous JT Man versions, which were based on DPML. – JT Hot Folder (optional): The JT Hot Folder automates the transmission process of print files to the Printgroove JT Man Server, improving speed and flow of recurring print jobs. PostScript or PDF files from the specified program are saved in the JT Hot Folder, linked with the print settings stored in this folder, and printed according to these predefined instructions. Files can also be placed in the folder using the drag-and-drop function.
Templates – Configuration editor: The settings of printers, media, products and services can all be changed in a single window.
Job ticket – Easy relaying of job settings: All details for printing of the job, such as page size, printing in colour or black & white, single- or double-sided, punched, etc., are compiled in a job ticket, which is relayed to the output device together with the print file.
