Document Software Helps Businesses Minimize Energy Consumption and Costs

DocPath brings new life to line matrix printers with new software offering

DocPath, a provider of document software, on Wednesday announced the availability of Business Suite Industrial, a new software solution that enables businesses to generate professionally formatted documents such as invoices and labels for printing on line matrix and thermal printers. This solution provides users of these printers with document design technology that was previously only available for laser printers.

Thousands of line matrix printers are in use by businesses throughout the U.S., including those in retail, manufacturing, distribution, finance and healthcare. The challenge with using line matrix technology is an inability to easily and affordably design graphical documents for printing on a line printer. With Business Suite Industrial, line matrix users can continue to reap the benefits of a greener technology solution, migrate away from expensive and inflexible pre-printed forms, and do far more with their printed documents.

Business Suite Industrial includes an intuitive design tool for creating professionally formatted graphical documents that allow for tables, images and data-driven messages, barcodes and more, all of which are commonly used by industrial companies.

"Many businesses like the cost-effectiveness and efficiency of existing line matrix printers, but have been forced to migrate to laser due to a severe lack of application flexibility. With DocPath, this is no longer the case," said Julio Olivares, president and CEO, DocPath. "Line matrix is increasingly relevant by offering benefits such as lower energy consumption, hardware longevity, lower cost of ownership and support for graphical forms generation."

A renewed relevance for line matrix:
A "greener" alternative - When factoring hardware longevity, consumable waste and energy consumption, line matrix is one of the most environmentally-friendly ways to print.

  • Lower cost of ownership - Especially for high volume and high coverage print requirements, line matrix printers can be the least expensive to operate per page, long-term, providing an attractive alternative to laser for nearly any business.
  • Unmatched reliability - Line matrix printers maintain superior performance when exposed to humidity, extreme temperatures, dust/dirt and other elements, making them ideal for harsh environments.

Business Suite Industrial is available for installation on iSeries, Windows, UNIX and Linux. Business Pro Suite, a more comprehensive version, enables support for laser printing, larger distributed print environments, PDF generation, and automated delivery of documents to email or fax.
