Print Audit Releases Facilities Manager, Rapid Assessment Key
Print Audit, a print management software developer, announced that it has released a new software tool that will provide copier vendors with detailed knowledge about their clients' printer and copier fleets.
The Print Audit Facilities Manager is designed to monitor volumes and report service information for fleets of copiers, printers, fax machines, and multi-function devices. It automatically records page counts for these devices, eliminating the need to manually gather information.
"Print Audit Facilities Manager closes the loop in our quest to provide our office equipment dealer customers with a complete sales and management solution," said John MacInnes, President and CEO of Print Audit. "We now can help them to sell more hardware and then actively manage that hardware at customer sites."
Office equipment dealers can use the tool to improve their cost per page program by automatically collecting meter reads, calculating true cost per copy, and setting customer and device specific cost per copy charges.
The Facilities Manager installs in a matter of minutes to any 32-bit Windows workstation. The data it collects can be viewed remotely via Print Audit's secure web interface, which can generate comprehensive reports on page counts, toner levels, cost per copy, utilization, total cost of ownership, service history and more.
Rapid Assessment Key
Print Audit also released a new product that quickly collects data from networked imaging devices. The Rapid Assessment Key is a compact and easy to use USB device that operates without installing any hardware or software, allowing office equipment dealers and IT personnel to assess and troubleshoot document output fleets in minutes.
The key probes networked printers, copiers and multi-function devices to discover the IP address, device description, serial number, life page count, color count, color/monochrome identification, device status, toner levels and more.
"The Rapid Assessment Key provides our office equipment dealer customers with a revolutionary way to quickly gather information about networked imaging devices," said John MacInnes, President and CEO of Print Audit.
The Rapid Assessment Key is included with the Print Audit Reseller Assessment Program or can be purchased on its own for a one time fee.
