New add-on targets SMEs, corporate and public sector
Multifunction: Oki’s managed print offering aims to help organisations gain visibility into their print fleet
Oki has added another string to its managed print solutions bow, rolling out a programme called Print Optimizer, aimed at SMEs, corporations and the public sector.
Print Optimizer is part of Oki’s Total Managed Print managed print offering and will help resellers to match customer printing requirements to use patterns.
Rob Brown, managed print services business manager at Oki, said resellers offering Print Optimizer will be able to help their customers boost productivity by making the cost of printing more transparent.
“[This] will not only reduce your carbon footprint but contribute to a more secure print environment and, above all, save money,” Brown claimed.
Print Optimizer incorporates four steps – Assess, Propose, Implement and Manage – that will enable users to understand the customer’s existing printer fleet, consumable use, and printing behaviour, and use that information to help customers improve print practices and productivity.
“With a strong focus on workgroup strategies, Print Optimizer brings the right device to exactly where it is needed,” Brown claimed.
“It forms the basis for a continuous cycle of re-evaluation to ensure the customer’s changing business needs are taken into consideration and the solution adjusted accordingly.”"
