FMAudit Releases it's New Onsite Appliance
Jefferson City, Missouri -February 16, 2009 - Over the past decade, various approaches to office equipment data collection have been introduced with mixed results. While a dedicated "cellular-box" mounted on each copier sounded intriguing at the time, it proved expensive and cumbersome. Equipment Manufacturers and third party embedded solutions followed. These embedded solutions fair better in the field, but often face stiff IT obstacles and are model specific, supporting only a portion of the end-users fleet. As Managed Print Services offerings become main stream, a scalable, centrally managed, vendor neutral solution is not only desired; dealers demand it!
FMAudit has officially released its new Onsite Appliance. A virtual plug-n-play hardware device with a footprint of only a few inches in diameter. A single appliance can manage thousands of devices, regardless of the model. It's fully compatible with FMAudit's Agent to include support for locally attached printers. The Onsite Appliance is a revolutionary break-through.
"FMAudit has earned a reputation of introducing innovative solutions to the industry." stated Kevin Tetu, President and CEO of FMAudit, "Along the way we've kept our focus in-check, successfully streamlining dealer operations and the associated costs to manage their fleet. The Onsite Appliance is our latest example of how we're making this possible."
The Onsite Appliance may be delivered to the customer, pre-configured and ready to plug into their network. It immediately starts gathering data and sends it back to the dealers office. Dealers can make changes to IP subnets, schedules, or other settings back at their office. The changes are carried forward to the Onsite Appliance at their customer site.
"FMAudit is aggressively moving up the value chain by continuing to develop a robust set of solutions that gives the dealer flexible options to be successful in deploying and managing this technology. The key to any successful MPS Solution is the ability to collect data in any network environment and the onsite appliance gives the dealer another option for success." stated Greg Allen, COO, FMAudit, "This illustrates how FMAudit’s development and technology is leading the pack with its services and solutions."
The Onsite Appliance is available for immediate delivery. Visit us at ITEX booth #335 for a live demonstration.
