Especially eCommerce ISVs liked webPRNT, because their online application is Web-Base and webPRNT is great for WebApp. When the ISVs need to expand their APP to real-store in addition, they have to support “Print” function for Web Application. One if biggest good point for Web Application is that it can be used for both online-store and real-store (one common application). Web Programmers actually don’t know about “Print”, and they love our webPRNT Innovation.
Banking, Glass-Shop and Golf Course also liked webPRNT.
Other Web-ISVs who have issue for downloading the printer driver in PC.
Note : Installing and maintaining the SSL Server Certificate are complicated for users and therefore some ISVs prefer CloudPRNT.
