Dot matrix printing has existed for a very long time and is still very much in use today by manufacturing, wholesale, trading, and distribution companies. While it has served the purpose of customers' convenience in acknowledging invoices/deliveries with the assurance of using signatures with carbon copies, the quality and misalignment issues have always been an inherent part of the process. The "dotty" print quality, misalignments, and the need to stock up on pre-printed forms have become a bigger issue given the need to scan and convert to digital soft copies and companies wanting to automate document matching process.
Dot2ink is a DX (Digital Transformation) initiative designed to "digitalize" dot-matrix printing process by replacing conventional dot-matrix printers with ink-jet MFPs with embedded Bizmann's dot2ink software application. Implementing dot2ink is a very practical means to digitalise dot-matrix printing process to digital. The cost is very affordable for most companies and there are even cost savings when we analyse the manual invoice/delivery printing and collection process. dot2ink is an ingenuous DX initiative and an excellent implementation project for companies wishing to achieve ESG or sustainability goals.
