duisport - Duisburger Hafen AG faced a challenge that impacted its business operations and productivity. Before the introduction of the 365 business Print Agent, employees had to manually control print jobs from the Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central web client. This resulted in significant extra effort, low productivity, and errors in the printing processes, especially when printing linked supplementary documents such as sketches and drawings in the production process.
The solution involved implementing 365 business Print Agent . During the upgrade from Dynamics NAV to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, the Print Agent was identified as a critical component for a successful go-live. User-friendliness, integration with Active Directory, and automated PDF generation were crucial aspects considered in selecting this solution.
Since the go-live in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in May 2023, 365 business Print Agent has been in productive use. The restoration of familiar printing processes, integration with Active Directory, and continuous advancements have contributed to increased acceptance and efficiency.
The direct integration into Business Central by the 365 business Print Agent has resulted in significant improvements in workflows. Examples include bulk printing of production papers in crate manufacturing and label printing in conjunction with ZEBRA printers. These changes have led to time savings and cost reduction.
duisport - Duisburger Hafen AG has impressive statistics regarding the usage of the 365 business Print Agent, including 360 printers, 11,000 print jobs per month, and 450 users. Although the exact monetary savings are challenging to quantify, a time saving of approximately 2 hours per day was achieved in crate manufacturing alone.
The support and personal assistance provided by 365 business development GmbH received positive feedback, underscoring the customer's satisfaction with the 365 business Print Agent and the company's service.
duisport - Duisburger Hafen AG recommends the 365 business Print Agent due to time savings, cost reduction, personal support, and continuous advancements.
The restoration of familiar printing processes from the previous Dynamics NAV, combined with the direct integration with Active Directory, and various enhancements and optimizations both during the Dynamics NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central upgrade (pre-go-live) and continuously in production (post-go-live) has proven to be convincing.
