Ringdale Releases FollowMe Embedded for OKI Smart Multifunctionals
U.K.-based Ringdale, a provider of secure document-output management solutions, is releasing FollowMe Embedded for OKI client. Available for all OKI MFPs with OKI’s embedded smart Extendable Platform, the FollowMe Embedded client provides an intuitive user interface that enables secure-print job management, user-enrollment, and cost-code assignment directly from the OKI MFP’s control panel.
FollowMe provide print “roaming” and secure pull printing – users send a print job, select an available MFP, authenticate themselves at the MFP’s control panel, and then select their job for printing.
FollowMe also provides a tracking and reporting engine that in turn provides an accurate picture on print costs and activity, on a per user, device, or department basis. Organizations are then able to make decisions to optimize the printing environment or to better manage costs – for instance, moving high-volume devices to departments with high print volumes. The built-in billing capability enables businesses to recover printing costs from clients, where activity is captured and assigned to pre-defined billing codes for undisputable cost allocation.
“With seamless access to all the tools for secure, cost effective office printing, our customers are able to maximize cost savings, increase efficiency and leverage their technology investments,” commented Jan Bollmann, vice president of Engineering for Ringdale. “The FollowMe Embedded client is integrated directly into the native functionality of the OKI OpenPlatform enabled MFPs, enabling complete control of print, copy, scan, and fax straight from the enabled MFP’s front panel.”
