Leading providers of business solutions, Epson America, and PrintFleet® have partnered, resulting in the optimisation of the data collection process for Epson business printers. PrintFleet’s software will be able to quickly and accurately collect, analyse and deliver data via Epson’s wide range of business printing products so that Managed Print Services (MPS) deployments are streamlined, thereby allowing IT professionals and providers in managed business environments to monitor and manage performance, workflow, productivity and costs remotely.
Alfredo Soto, Group Manager of New Printing Solutions at Epson America, Inc., said: “Through this joint effort, resellers and distributors can enhance their customer offerings, enabling ease-of-management and the ability to provide more intelligent data collection and analytics of their print environment.” He added: “PrintFleet’s comprehensive and scalable data collection technology enables our reseller partners to deliver new levels of service, ultimately helping increase printing reliability and cost savings.”
The new partnership allows both companies to offer PrintFleet’s suite of software products that remotely monitors all printing, imaging and copying devices within an office environment in real time, with Epson’s imaging devices from their business-class printers to the Epson ImageWaySM Partner Program, to each company’s distribution partners and thereby allowing MPS providers to respond quickly to any changes.
David Morrow, CCO at PrintFleet, commented: “As a marketplace leader, Epson has always delivered high quality, cost-effective business imaging solutions. The difference now is that both companies’ engineering teams are working together to ensure that PrintFleet’s software collects accurate and comprehensive Epson device data.” He added: “We are confident this enhanced collaboration will benefit the reseller community with reduced costs, improved service levels and more effective MPS deployments.” ZONE SE7EN’s Managed Print Services Roundtable and Executive Interview Event – http://zonese7en.com/insight-zone/managed-print-services-mps/
