For customers looking to increase their productivity and improve planning and costing of their print production, Epson announces the introduction of Cloud Solution PORT. The platform is a cloud-based service that supports Epson large format printers and can be accessed from multiple devices including PCs, smartphones and tablets.
Customers will be able to monitor printers across several locations, from the production floor, or remotely, using configurable dashboards with clear graphics to analyse productivity and receive operational updates about the print jobs, ink levels and maintenance status – minimising downtime and disruption to print runs.
The first service to be offered on the platform will be Production Monitor, which will examine the status of production in real time. Customers can see when jobs have been completed or the remaining time left to complete a job, giving them the information to accurately plan production. It generates daily reports that highlight production bottlenecks or opportunities where productivity can improve.
At launch, supported Epson models are the SC-F3000, SC-F10000 with further models and services added over the months ahead.
Epson Cloud Solution PORT will be available for free with the printer and is accessed via its own portal. For further information please go to https://port.epson.com/
