Insight Works Releases Free Printing Utility for Business Central Cloud

June 16, 2020

Easily manage and print reports in Business Central Cloud with Insight Works' free PrintNode Connector. Simple setup, seamless printing.

Insight Works, a leader in the manufacturing and distribution industry vertical for Dynamics 365 Business Central, has addressed the challenge of easily managing print jobs from within Business Central Cloud through the release of its new PrintNode Connector “free forever” utility, a product designed specifically for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Cloud. With PrintNode Connector, users can configure and assign reports while printing jobs within Business Central in order to print to local and network printers.

While PrintNode Connector is a “free forever” utility from Insight Works, a account is required and, depending on the service selected, a nominal fee may be charged by PrintNode.

PrintNode remains a hosted printing service that can help users quickly, easily and securely add remote printing to their applications. The PrintNode Client automatically detects printers on the computer on which it is running, the system itself having been designed from the ground up to be as fast and efficient as possible.

“Business Central Cloud operates in a browser, hence in the cloud, and there has been no easy way to manage print jobs from within Business Central – that is, until now,” states Brian Neufeld, Insight Works’ Director of Marketing. “Through the magic of our PrintNode Connector, users can not only configure reports but assign them, all while printing jobs within the Business Central environment so they may be printed to specific network and local printers.”

Setup is extremely simple, with no programming required to take advantage of the integration – users simply enter their PrintNode API key once during setup, and then use the standard Business Central Printer Administration page to set the printer they care to use for each report (or to select the printer each time they print). What’s more, PrintNode Connector makes printing seamless, eliminating PDF downloads to print while offering a simple single-field setup and utilizing standard Business Central printer management capabilities.

The utility also works with all standard and custom reports and pages, including barcode labels, and supports Essentials and Premium licensing.

PrintNode Connector is available via Microsoft AppSource or from the extension marketplace from within Business Central Cloud.
