MPS – What’s New For 2013?

Welcome to my monthly Managed Print Services blog!

As an MPS Technical Consultant with over five years’ experience, I thought I would brave the blogging scene to share my insider knowledge and tips with you! For my first blog, I outline some of the new and emerging Managed Print Services technologies for 2013, I hope you enjoy!

A recent report from Photizo Group predicts that 2013 will see Managed Print Services spend match and possibly overtake the traditional hardware purchase, for the first time! It’s no wonder that the big movers in the market are hurriedly and continuously adding software and additional features to their portfolio to give them the edge over competitors!

With Managed Print Services gaining mainstream success and the market leaders releasing intelligent solutions to meet industry needs, 2013 looks to be a very interesting year for MPS. Here’s a look at what you can expect to hear about this year…

  1. HP
    HP will be hoping that 2013 will be lucky for them! A lot is riding on the success of their new fleet of printers which boast print delivery at twice the speed but at a much lower cost thanks to its new PageWide technology.

    On the Managed Print Services side, they have recently had some promising additions to their range. The introduction of HP Access Control (its very own secure follow me solution), HP IP Security Centre and HP Capture and Route all go some way to adding intelligent functional software to their MPS offering.

    They have also jumped on the mobile printing trend, now offering a suite of Mobile Printing Applications to suit businesses of all sizes. My favourites are HP ePrint Enterprise and HP Printer Control, both essential for any organisation embarking on a BYOD policy.

  2. Sharp
    Sharp who currently deliver MFP’s with print speeds exceeding 100ppm, are trying to catch up on the solutions side by signing an agreement with NER. Using NER’s Print4 solution, Sharp can now provide products and services to customers beyond their existing scope.

    According to NER “The enhanced Print4 MPS solution provides a cloud-based technology suite, automated supplies and service alerting for fulfilment, a comprehensive support structure, and a world-class printer service business.”

  3. SafeCom
    SafeCom, now a Nuance company, released its G4 Server version before Christmas which boasts some really exciting features on top of its already impressive Managed Print Solution offering.

    Watch out for the SafeCom Smart Printer Driver which creates and stores print data on the SafeCom Server in Microsoft XPS format (XML Paper Specification format) until it knows which printer will be used. This allows for a single queue setup on a multivendor site.

    I’m really impressed with Safecom Smart Scan, when using this function, encrypted scans from the MFP are sent to the SafeCom server, users can then access/download their own files through a Smart Scan application running on their PC or through the SafeCom G4 web application. And all this without clogging up Exchange!
