What can Print Fleet Management Software do for you?

When your print devices run low on ink, would it save time if your new ink cartridges were already there? …sent automatically in advance? Would automating meter readings save you time and also money? Would accurate usage reports help you manage your printer fleet?

Fleet Monitoring Software can do all this and much more. No more last minute calls to order toners. Say goodbye to filling out online meter billing forms. No more hunting around for inventory lists of printers and also their locations.

Instead it’s all automated and available 24/7 online.

Automated Toner Delivery

Good news! Your toner deliveries can be automated. We can also customise the threshold at which new toners are automatically sent – so heavy use devices get sent a new toner sooner. Likewise, the destination of the toner can be customised with specific delivery instructions to accommodate:

  • Going directly to the print device itself
  • Being sent to a central location (such as a print room where all inventory may be stored and managed)
  • Locations on a sprawling campus/large corporate HQ/serviced offices
  • Remote locations with unusual/bespoke addresses

Automated emails can also be sent to key staff, so they are aware of an incoming consumables order.

Automated Meter Readings

Traditionally, meter readings were collected manually – normally monthly – by walking up to or logging into the device through a network connection/webpage. Then the readings are then returned to your Managed Print Service provider by phone, fax or email. If readings were not received, reminders were sent and a chase for data ensued which, if fruitless, resulted in estimates being used for billing purposes …with mixed results.

Fleet Monitoring Software automates all of this in an efficient, reliable way

As a result these reports help you:

  • Pick usage trends so you can proactively manage and optimise use of your print assets
  • Support your company’s environmental aims and green credentials
  • Audit your print asset inventory
  • Spot check device usage and also billing information

Security

Data is collected using high security protocols similar to online banking. You can choose to have the software installed on:

  • The print devices themselves (called embedding) or
  • On your server or
  • On a local PC which could also allow the collection of readings from locally connected (USB) devices
