DocuAudit Licenses FMAudit's Side-By-Side Database
Jefferson City, MO (March 2, 2009) - DocuAudit has signed a definitive agreement to license FMAudit's Side-By-Side database.
Since 2004 FMAudit has expanded quickly. When first entering the market, FMAudit focused on assessments, but has moved forward into remote monitoring of print devices that includes automated meters, device error reporting, and auto supplies replenishment. Today FMAudit monitors fleets of printers four times larger than its nearest rival. Along the way FMAudit has created a repository of printer devices including device and supply pricing data known as the FMAudit Side-By-Side.
"When you think about organic growth and innovation, FMAudit is the poster child for assessment and remote monitoring technology for our industry." stated Jim Salzer, President of DocuAudit International, "FMAudit's Side-By-Side database is one fine example. Their efforts and experience are revolutionizing our industry and providing dealers with access to knowledge like never before. FMAudit's Side-By-Side database will add significantly to our users ability to streamline the process of developing TCO analysis without the burden of researching specs and pricing of devices and their related supplies."
FMAudit's Side-By-Side database is unique in terms of value and functionality. The Side-by-Side meshes real-time device status with a database of 12,000 models and growing by the day. With hundreds of fields, device attributes range from product images, consumable yields and costs, to duty cycles. When combined with data pulled from the dealers ERP and vendor supply costs, FMAudit provides unprecedented access to empirical data.
When used in conjunction with reporting and Proposal Generation packages like DocuAudit, FMAudit's Side-By-Side database is a vast improvement over flat spreadsheets. However the features and benefits extend far beyond into areas such as industry trend analysis and OEM product planning.
"Over the last 5 years our team has been diligently maintaining our Side-By-Side data repository while tweaking our proprietary algorithms." stated Kevin Tetu, CEO of FMAudit, "During the same time DocuAudit has been recognized as a leader for TCO analysis and proposal generation. Our companies and products naturally aligned. We look forward to our continued relationship with DocuAudit."
Since 1998, FMAudit and its partners have pioneered cutting-edge cost recovery solutions that helped define the managed print services industry. Today, the company has assembled an industry leading portfolio of remote meter reading and managed print services tools. Some of our
innovations include Web-based data collection, "local printer" data collection, Supplies Triggered Marketing and Automated Supply fulfillment, as well as Total Cost of Ownership reporting.
