Brother International Belgium NV/SA has come together with Danish printer fleet management solutions supplier EuroForm to launch a multi-year Managed Print Services (MPS) partnership.
The partnership came about after the acknowledgement that although many companies take a “reasonable view” of their IT infrastructure, such as desktops, laptops, and servers, fewer businesses can pinpoint whether or not their printers are covering their exact needs; they can not definitively say how much each printer prints, what the paper or ink costs are, and what the safety and security of this machinery is.
“Collecting data alone is not enough,” explained Mark Kouwenberg, Sales Director of EuroForm A/S. “Understanding and making decisions based on the right information – with which partners and end users can be helped – is the real added value. Where Managed Print Services initially concerned the consolidation of devices and the realisation of initial savings, today, sustainability, security, continuity and supporting day-to-day processes are of paramount importance to the end user.”
To meet this shift in focus, Brother is now offering JetAdvice solutions and services to its partners and customers. JetAdvice Manager is the printer fleet management solution with which Brother and its partners can monitor print environments and transform this data into added value for customers. The new reporting portal, JetAdvice Premium, provides these action-oriented reports covering the entire MPS life cycle. This allows Brother to add “tangible value” from all collected data to their customers and partners.
Frank Deneweth, Managing Director of Brother International Belgium NV/SA, declared that the “greatest asset” of JetAdvice is that it works completely vendor-independent: “Companies often have a diversified printing environment with devices from different manufacturers. While our own MPS software only works with Brother devices, thanks to JetAdvice we can now offer a versatile solution to our partners and customers”.
