Managed print services solutions for PCL5 & PCL6 devices ensure cost control and reduce downtime as well as waste
ORLANDO, FL – January 14, 2015 – Datamax-O’Neil, a global provider of industrial-grade label and receipt-printing solutions, has announced its integration with ECi FMAudit, an industry-leading provider of managed print services (MPS) software solutions. FMAudit’s technology is suitable for PCL supported printers such as the recently launched HP compatible 8-inch H-8308p from Datamax-O’Neil and the innovative Performance Series printers. It consists of a set of tools that allows enterprises to centrally manage and monitor all printer activities within one network.
“Great allies like FMAudit help us drive innovation forward,” said Thomas Brahm, Product Manager Stationary Business Unit with Datamax-O’Neil. “Recently, Datamax-O’Neil launched our new H-8308p thermal printer, which is compatible with FMAudit’s managed print services software. This makes us one of the first companies in our segment that uses this system for its printers. It enables users to further increase productivity while maintaining total cost control.”
FMAudit’s MPS suite of products provide a user interface and reporting tools that simplify administration. It provides information, for example, on the level of toner cartridges and automatically sends custom emails to the user with options for placing orders. Recently FMAudit announced the ability to place toner orders or quotes directly into ECi’s e-automate® and OMD® business systems based on consumable levels and alerts. Consequently, document output devices and related business processes can be optimized, and costs and waste kept low. A significant number of large and medium sized companies worldwide have migrated to this software to manage their device fleets. Regardless of the size of an organization, there is a large demand for all companies to adopt this model of management to control cost and increase productivity.
This innovative system also empowers Datamax-O’Neil partners to offer a different financing model to their end users. Thanks to the MPS capability of the printer, end users can profit from a HaaS (Hardware as a Service) offer, meaning they will be able to finance the use of the printer and relevant consumables on a per label basis. Such a solution will give them the possibility to move from a capital equipment expense towards an operating expense usage, allowing a full cost control of their label printing function and easier management of their assets.
