Moscow-based print provider, ArtDoza, has been relying on Matan's iPhone application for Barak printers to bring greater efficiencies to its business.
Print shop owners and managers and are very busy people. On top of being responsible for the smooth operation of the production floor, streamlining print jobs across several machines and various media, managing operator teams, controlling ink supplies, and keeping track of tight deadlines, they also often are the ones to deal with clients and engage in sales activities. The new Barak iQ iPhone application has been specially designed to alleviate some of this workload.
Mr. Ruslan Bairamov, CEO of ArtDoza, a leading Moscow super-wide format print provider, uses the Barak iPhone app daily, sometimes up to ten times a day. It allows him to control the print queue, wherever he happens to be. He comments, "It helps me motivate my staff to perform their job and to make sure there is no machine downtime... Thanks to the Barak app I am always able stay on top of what is going on."
With the application, Barak iQ users can keep track of the printer production status via their iPhone or iPad, anywhere, anytime. The app displays the job queue. Clicking on a job allows previewing the file, viewing details such as size, media, printing mode, estimated duration and more. At any given moment it is possible to view the status of the currently printed job, including print speed, ink consumption, estimated time left to completion time and more. The ink level in the printer status is also available and the app can be configured to issue text alerts in case that ink levels run low. All completed jobs appear in the History View, with all the pertinent info.
A shop that owns several Barak iQ printers can track and check on each of them, allowing for total production control even when away from the production site.
Matan will be demonstrating its print solutions at drupa 2012 in Hall 9, booth A56. These include superwide format hybrid UV printers as well as specialty printers for a variety of applications including traffic signage and durable graphics.
