Epson Connect API User Cases
■Choi-Req (OPERe, Inc.)
ChoiReq is a tool that helps communication between COVID-19 patients and healthcare workers. When a patient makes a purchase request, the Epson Connect API is used to directly send the request details to the printer installed at the hospital shop bypassing the nurse. Managing printed purchase tickets can be streamlined by accumulating them in accounting thereby eliminating individual cash transactions. This convenient service can be easily deployed as the existing flow is retained as much as possible.
■Schoner (Nonprofit Organization Clipper)
Epson Connect API has been incorporated in an online learning platform. It allows students to study using printed media while they are remote, and converting paper to digital forms by scanning makes it easier to exchange them online. We provide new forms of learning regardless of location.
