The announcement noted that the two companies will work together to integrate the FMAudit MPS software with Datamax-O’Neil’s PCL5 and PCL6 receipt and label printers in an effort to “ensure cost control and reduce downtime and waste”. The FMAudit software will collect data from the printers in order to allow companies to “centrally manage and monitor all printer activities within one network”.
The software will also help to “simplify administration, maintenance and supply fulfilment” by automatically emailing a user when cartridges are low on toner “with a link to the corresponding toner shop”, with “a significant number of large and medium-sized companies worldwide” already using the FMAudit software for their printer fleets.
ECI’s partnership with Datamax-O’Neil will also help the latter company “offer a different financing model to their end-users”, with the company offering Hardware as a Service (Haas) meaning that customers “will be able to finance the use of the printer and relevant consumables on a per-label basis”, for more “cost control and control of their label-printing function”.
Christian Bischoff, Regional General Manager for the EMEA at Datamax-O’Neil, commented: “Working together with renowned companies like ECi helps us in driving forward innovation. With the launch of the new Datamax-O’Neil H-8308p thermal printer, we introduced the ability to capture valuable data from devices via the FMAudit Managed Print Service software. This makes us one of the first companies in our segment that uses this system for its printers. The FMAudit software enables users to further increase productivity while maintaining total cost control.”
