Roland DG Launches New Services to Support Efficient Media Management and Repeat Printing Operations

Hamamatsu, Japan, January 11, 2024 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide-format inkjet printers and printer/cutters worldwide, announced two new services for Media Inventory Management and VersaWorks Job Setting Backup to support stress-free printing operations.

1. Media Inventory Management*1
When a printing job is complete, the printer will automatically print a barcode on the media containing the profile and print settings with the remaining media quantity. This information is uploaded to the cloud, making it possible to centrally manage all remaining media stock. The printed barcode is read when the media is loaded and the media-specific setting conditions are automatically relayed to the printer, ensuring stress-free and optimal output at all times.

2. VersaWorks Job Setting Backup
The printing information of each print job in VersaWorks 6, the RIP software that comes standard with Roland DG inkjet printers, is automatically backed up to the cloud. This feature allows repeat jobs to be handled accurately and quickly, ensuring profile and printer settings remain the same each time.

Tony Miller, President, Global Sales and Marketing Division, said, “In the highly competitive printing industry, the ability to manage day-to-day print operations accurately and efficiently is critical to building trust with clients and achieving healthy profitability. The new services will be of great benefit to customers whose handle many different types of media on a daily basis, or who receive numerous repeat jobs from specific clients over a long period of time. We will continue to expand our services to create an environment where customers can maximize their creativity and contribute to the creation of high value-added businesses.”

These services are offered through Roland DG Connect*2, a cloud-based connected service designed to increase performance and business growth. Media Inventory Management is available with the Roland DG Connect Premium Plan, and Automatic Backup of Output Setting Date is available with the Premium and Professional Plans.
A 90-day free trial campaign is currently being offered for Premium and Professional Plans. Roland DG inkjet users are invited to take advantage of this special opportunity to experience Roland DG Connect and its new features.
