Autoprinting a PDF from a Broswer

I'm working with a cloud-based application (NetSuite) where we need to quickly print a document from the broswer. Right now it's taking too many clicks to get the job done. I'm wondering if there are any scripting/plug-in options we can use to create an auto-print solution.

We're moving to a new system at work that is all browser based. When it's time to create a packing slip for one of our shipments, the worker must select "Save & Print." This launches a separate window where Acrobat loads in the browser. The worker must select Print again from the Acrobat screen, wait for the print job to complete, then close the acrobat window. This is taking too long with too many clicks.
I would like to get the browser to behave so that once the "Save & Print" button is clicked, the second window opens, initiates the print job and closes automatically without the user having to do anything else.
If something like this is possible, how would I go about implementing it? I don't personally have any type of scripting skills, but have a developer at my disposal. I would also be willing to pay an outside person to help me with this task. Thanks!
