OL Connect

OL Connect provides solutions that automate business communications and paper based business processes whilst protecting existing IT investments and infrastructure.

OL Connect provides a powerful lights out automated workflow toolkit that can be configured to provide a complete automated business communication solution for corporate customers, Print rooms and Print Service Providers.

OL Connect uses core workflow modules to meet demanding processing requirements via either Planet Press Connect or PReS Connect workflow modules respectively.

Optional user facing modules such as Capture OnTheGo or Connect Send allow user interaction via form (mobile / tablet) and desktop document submission to trigger back end workflow processes and automatically produce invoices, customer communications or unstructured mailings accordingly.

OL Connect provides the ability to re-engineer, transform and route documents based on comprehensive rules. These capabilities makes OL Connect an ideal solution for organisations struggling to update or optimise existing workflows and link legacy or disparate systems to produce structured and graphically rich print or multichannel output.

For customers that handle low to medium based volumes and do not require a heavy weight back-end workflow then PrintShop Mail Connect can be utilised as a standalone desktop based variable data composition tool designed for the production of targeted print and email.

OL Connect also powers Ricoh’s Hybrid Mail solution.
