Toshiba dealers and subsidiaries will now be able to market Lexmark’s Fleet Manager 2.0 software as part of their managed print services offering.
Fleet Manager 2.0 helps enterprises identify printing costs and usage, as well as manage devices, schedule maintenance tasks, and automate supplies ordering, and can be integrated with billing and other software, including Toshiba’s Encompass.
Fleet Manager 2.0 consists of five key components:
Lexmark Fleet Tracker MSP (Managed Service Provider) is a server-based product that can be used to centrally manage and monitor thousands of devices in multiple locations. It also provides roll-up functionality by enabling full management of data provided by Lexmark Fleet Tracker, Lexmark Services Monitor and Lexmark Local Tracker.
- Lexmark Services Monitor is PC-based and provides basic device discovery, meter collection and transmission, as well as alerts via e-mail or XML, and is designed for a network environment of up to 500 devices. It also can roll-up to Fleet Tracker MSP.
- Embedded Lexmark Services Monitor (eLSM) can be installed on supported Lexmark MFPs, and will collect data on up to 100 devices.
- Lexmark Fleet Tracker (Enterprise) is server-based and providers a similar level of functionality as MSP, but for a single site and with the ability to manage thousands of devices.
- Lexmark Local Tracker is an add-on module to Lexmark Fleet Tracker that can be used to capture user and device information on networked and locally attached devices.
Toshiba also markets A3 and A4 office MFPs from Lexmark as well as from Hewlett-Packard.
