Introduced earlier this year, Roland DG Connect was developed to optimize customer satisfaction and success by providing a more powerful operating environment, improved workflow, and increased business insights, while benefiting people with different skills, goals, and requirements.
The latest updates to the app include a new printer monitoring function that maximizes printer efficiency and production by allowing users to check the operational status of multiple machines in real time. Also new is a "business dashboard" that enables users to perform simple profit and cost calculations by entering the unit selling price of the output and the prices of ink and media. This system fosters greater profitability by setting appropriate sales prices and increasing cost awareness.
With the recent addition of new inkjets like the VersaUV LEC2 Series UV-LED printer/cutters and the VersaUV LEC2 S-Series flatbed UV printers — in addition to the already compatible TrueVIS printers — the Roland DG Connect app is now available to an even wider range of customers. Roland DG also has plans to expand this list of supported products in the future.
“The innovative new features included in this latest release of the app makes Roland DG Connect even more robust and useful for our customers,” says Daniel Valade, Roland DGA product manager of digital print. “Version 1.1 not only makes it easy for users to observe the status of their printers, streamline workflow, and increase profits, it also helps expand their creative possibilities.”
Updating to the latest printer firmware is required in order to use the app with compatible models. Roland DG TrueVIS and VersaUV LEC2 owners can get started by first registering online at the Roland DG Connect page, and then downloading and setting up the app.
