Para Modules Spotlight: Quick Print Module
“I see how a small investment such as the Quick Print module will provide large time and cost savings”.
James Helms, Purchasing Manager – Contech Control Services, USA
One of the most common requests we get at Parashift is for the ability to print documents within Alfresco, without having to download them first.
The current process requires a user to download the document, open it in the relevant application and then print it. By itself, it does not sound too onerous; however, when dealing with numerous documents each day, lets be honest, it can become a cumbersome task.
Introducing Parashift’s ‘Quick Print’ Alfresco Add-on. Quick Print enables users to print directly from their browser with a simple click, eliminating the need to download the document.
Quick Print adds a handy ‘View Printable PDF’ button to your list of actions in Alfresco, transforming any PDF compatible document (eg: .docx, .xlsx, .ppt) into a PDF, making printing a simple click process.
On a daily basis, Contech Control Services handle hundreds, even thousands of documents relating to customer invoices. Printing these documents from Alfresco meant a lot of manual processes, such as downloading and opening a document before being able to print it. This resulted in a decrease of staff productivity and an action to seek out an alternative method of printing within Alfresco.
Contech Control Services purchased the Quick Print module. The solution has provided them with a dramatic improvement in staff productivity from the get-go.
