Roland DG Connect Adds New Features for Enhanced Customer Productivity and Creativity

Hamamatsu, Japan, November 16, 2021 - Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of wide format inkjet printers and printer cutters, today announced the release of Roland DG Connect version 1.1, which includes new features to enhance printer operation status visibility and increase the profitability for an expanded range of products.

Introduced earlier this year, Roland DG Connect was developed to improve customer satisfaction by providing a more comfortable and stable operating environment. Roland DG Connect helps to improve workflow efficiency, while increasing profitability and opportunities for business development, and enables people with different skills, and requirements to collaborate and share ideas.

With this update, a new printer monitoring function is included, that allows customers to check the operational status of multiple printers in real time. This makes it possible to operate printers more efficiently and productively. It also features a "business dashboard" that allows users to perform simple profit and cost calculations by entering the unit selling price of ink and media. This assists in setting appropriate sales prices and increasing cost awareness.

With the addition of the VersaUV LEC2-330/640 UV LED printer cutters, the software is now available for an even wider range of devices.

“Roland DG Connect is a valuable free service that greatly expands the creative possibilities of our customers by connecting them to a wide range of people and resources online," said Tony Miller, President, Global Sales and Marketing Division. “Customers tell us that being able to easily observe the operating status of their printers has led to the implementation of appropriate maintenance for stable product operation and the realisation of increased efficiency and profitability. We will continue to add new features, services, and supported printers to generate an even more compelling and creative ecosystem for our customers worldwide.”

Roland DG Connect is currently available for all TrueVIS models including the VG2-640/540, SG2-640/540/300, VF2-640, VG-640/540, SG-540/300, as well as VersaUV models including LEC2-640/330 and LEC2-S series. Updating to the latest firmware is required. Supported products will be expanded in the future.
