Automated printing is transforming the way businesses manage and execute print jobs. ezeep Blue integrates seamlessly with workflow automations, eCommerce systems, and single job assignments to provide automated print output for a wide range of application scenarios.

What Examples of Automated Print Workflows Are There?

Automated print output is used in a wide variety of industries and application scenarios, such as with packing slips, generating shipping labels when new orders are received, or with automatically outputting invoices at the end of sales processes.

Automated printing also streamlines mass production of documents, which is why companies that regularly need to print large quantities of reports, invoices, brochures, or other documents especially benefit from automation. Instead of handling each print job manually, an automated printing process is set up which allows a large number of documents to be printed in a short period of time. Automation increases efficiency and frees up manpower for more important tasks to keep core business processes running seamlessly.

How To Automate Printing with the ezeep Blue API

Another way to automate label printing, delivery slips or any kind of file, is to use the ezeep Blue API. An API (Application Programming Interface) is a piece of software that allows other programs to connect to and access a software system. By integrating the ezeep Blue API into your own applications and workflows, you can ensure your customers receive reliable and accurate printouts. With the Print API, it is possible to seamlessly automate the printing process and integrate printing functions into all your applications.
