Following the initial launch of this service by the OEM back in October 2017, Epson is now rolling out ReadyInk across Germany in partnership with Printer4You.
As Epson Deutschland GmbH explains, German end-users now have a new ink delivery service available for consumer-based payment based on actual usage. The service does not require a monthly subscription, is available through participating retail partners across the country.
In order to sign up, users can register online.
Epson ReadyInk is described by the OEM as a straightforward solution that constantly monitors the user’s ink usage, predicting when a new cartridge is likely to be needed. The dealer where the customer bought his printer is notified and then initiates the delivery of a new cartridge. This ensures a complete supply of ink to the customer.
Each retailer tailors the offer to their individual needs in order to provide customers with the best possible service. For example, special offers, add-on purchase options or the choice between different types of notification. This new service also ensures that customers will only receive high-quality original ink cartridges from Epson, ensuring a long printer life. The ReadyInk service was made available for the first time from March 2019 at the Epson partner company Printer4You (www.printer4you.com).
Jörn von Ahlen, Head of Marketing at Epson Deutschland GmbH, adds: “Epson ReadyInk is an excellent addition to our portfolio of customer-friendly services. With both our refillable EcoTanks and the ReadyInk system, customers no longer worry about printer downtime due to lack of ink.”
Heino Deubner, Managing Director of Printer Care Service GmbH (Printer4you), explains: “The Epson ReadyInk technology fits perfectly with printer4you.com. Customers with Epson printers do not need additional software to benefit from the automated supply of ink cartridges, which I consider innovative and customer-oriented. For this reason, we have quickly decided to integrate ReadyInk into our portal and in the future to address the private consumer with this program.”
