Epson Beefs up Managed Print Service Offerings with Support for ECi FMAudit
Epson America reports that its WorkForce Pro business printers have achieved validated device-support status for printer-monitoring and management ECi FMAudit software from partner ECi FMAudit. Epson’s validated device-support status with FMAudit provides Managed Print Service (MPS) providers with extensive access, data monitoring and collection to streamline MPS deployments of Epson WorkForce Pro business inkjet printers.
According to Mike Isgrig, vice president of North America Consumer Sales and Marketing for Epson America, “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. 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 optimize and manage their customers’ printers, MFPs and copier fleets.”
Epson’s validated device-support status enables both companies to offer FMAudit’s Data Capture software, which provides IT professionals and MPS service providers with a streamlined process for data collection. This includes report creation, account-management strategies, and the ability to set up printer supply and service alerts. The solution is supported across the entire line of Epson WorkForce Pro commercial printers, including the newest models powered by PrecisionCore, Epson’s next-generation inkjet-printing technology. All Epson commercial printers are available through the Epson ImageWaySM Partner Program and authorized MPS resellers and distributors.
FMAudit’s portfolio is based on technology that integrates into existing infrastructures. The Data Capture solution 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 printers deliver high-quality output and a low total cost of ownership, which ties seamlessly to FMAudit’s extensive data collection software tools,” said Kevin Tetu, president of ECi FMAudit. “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.”
