Enhances managed print service offerings
SYDNEY, 16 June 2015 – Epson Australia today announced its WorkForce® Pro RIPS business printers have achieved validated device support status with FMAudit® software, distributed exclusively in Australia by PrintSolv a leading provider of innovative Managed Print Services (MPS) technologies. Epson’s validated device support status with FMAudit enables extensive access, data monitoring and collection to streamline MPS deployments. Together, Epson and FMAudit deliver a powerful solution for IT network professionals and dealers requiring robust business printers with easy-to-use monitoring services to manage productivity, performance and cost.
"As the managed print services market continues to grow, Epson has made it a priority to partner with solution providers such as FMAudit to address businesses’ need for solutions that deliver productivity and cost efficiency," said Craig Heckenberg, General Manager, Business Division, Epson Australia. "Resellers now have the opportunity to provide customers with leading-edge printing and imaging hardware from Epson and feature-rich MPS software from FMAudit to optimise and manage their customers’ printer fleets."
Epson Australia calls RIPS, which stands for Replaceable Ink Pack System, "The Future of Business Printing" as it is an entirely new way for small to medium size businesses to cut costs and improve efficiencies when it comes to office colour printing. Utilising this revolutionary system, Epson's new WorkForce® Pro R5000 series and R8000 series multi-function printers can deliver up to 75,000 printed pages(1) in both black and colour before the ink needs to be replaced. These printing solutions allow customers to print high impact colour documents with ultra-low operating costs and minimal maintenance.
Epson’s validated device support status enables both companies to offer FMAudit’s Data Capture software, which allows IT professionals and MPS service providers to take advantage of a streamlined, efficient process for data collection. This includes report creation, account management strategies, and the ability to set up supply and service alerts. The solution is supported across the entire range of Epson WorkForce Pro RIPS printers, including the newest models powered by PrecisionCore™, Epson’s revolutionary printing technology. All Epson commercial printers are available through a select number of authorised MPS providers and specialty print dealers.
FMAudit’s diverse portfolio is based on a unique technology that integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructures. The Data Capture solution efficiently assesses and monitors information through its suite of products, enabling IT professionals and MPS service providers to deliver streamlined processes for monitoring, saving money and increasing productivity.
"Epson WorkForce Pro RIPS printers deliver high quality output and a low total cost of ownership, which ties seamlessly to FMAudit’s extensive data collection software tools," said PrintSolv General Manager Andrew Tsiorvas. "Our promise to our diverse client base is to deliver the solutions they need to effectively manage and monitor data and, with Epson, we look forward to providing resellers, distributors and IT professionals with cost savings in addition to an enhanced level of service."
