Ecofont brings green printing to the office
Ecofont BV today announces Ecofont Software Enterprise edition, revolutionary software helping organizations to reduce their environmental footprint and raise employers environmental awareness while saving costs.
“The beauty of the software is that you do not need to change the fonts you are currently using, it works with your existing documents with no further modifications needed. This makes implementation of the Ecofont software straightforward. You can maintain your house style, layout of document and forms”
Ecofont Software adds an extra print button to your toolbar which makes it possible to print the font of your choice wíth holes in it. The holes in the font and extra savings options save up to 50% on toner usage without affecting readability and usability. As toner is extremely expensive and polluting, the impact on printing costs and environmental footprint is impressive. The market concludes the same: after two weeks of pre-sales Ecofont Software has already more than 15,000 users worldwide.
“The beauty of the software is that you do not need to change the fonts you are currently using, it works with your existing documents with no further modifications needed. This makes implementation of the Ecofont software straightforward. You can maintain your house style, layout of document and forms,” says Alexander Kraaij, co-founder Ecofont.
Ecofont Enterprise Software works with several font types including Arial, Calibri, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS and Verdana. Ecofont software can be made compatible with other font types on request. This first module of the Ecofont software supports Ecofont printing in Microsoft Word and Outlook (2003, 2007 and 2010).
“One of the challenges for corporate sustainability and responsibility policies is to involve all employees. Ecofont Enterprise Software is a great tool empowering employees by offering each time they print the choice to do it green. It is an easy way to increase eco awareness and the result is immediately visible,” said Gerjon Zomer, co-founder Ecofont.
Ecofont software Enterprise edition is available for organizations with 30 workstations or more. Pricing depends on the number of licenses and starts from 420 euro.
“It is estimated that a corporate organization spends 1% to 3% of their annual revenue on printing. In today’s economical environment cutting printing cost is no longer optional but a must. We strongly believe that sustainability and profitability (must) go hand in hand. The break even point for our software is reached within 12 months. Often we contribute to a higher profit in as little as 2 to 3 months time. We collaborate with suppliers to fit the purchase of Ecofont software into the multi-year contracts companies sometimes have,” said Rick van den Bos, co-founder of Ecofont.
Ecofont software also announces the availability of Ecofont Enterprise Application Solution. An increasing number of documents are printed from Enterprise Application Software such as Enterprise Resource Planning, Customer Relationship Management or accounting software. Ecofont offers tailor made solutions enabling organizations to print a larger part of their document flow with Ecofont.
In 2008 Ecofont stunned the world with their simple proof of concept for reducing the amount of ink and toner used. Their font with “holes” Vera Sans Ecofont received worldwide recognition as a genuine way of reducing Greenhouse Gas emission caused by printing. Realizing the limitations of a stand-alone font Ecofont started the development of software allowing people to print document with normal fonts in Ecofont style. Ecofont BV won the European Environmental Design Award 2010.
