Insight only is no longer sufficient - Brother Managed Print Services is about continuous improvement
Thanks to JetAdvice we can now offer a versatile solution to our partners and customers - Frank Deneweth
Today Brother International Belgium NV/ SA and EuroForm A/S launch their multiple year partnership regarding Managed Print Services (MPS). Danish EuroForm is a supplier of printer fleet management solutions and related services with over 11 million devices worldwide under contract.
Nowadays it seems that many companies have a reasonable view on their IT-infrastructure, in particular the desktops, laptops and servers. Often these assets are monitored by internal or external IT-employees either provided as a cloud service.
How many companies can say whether the printers cover the exact needs of the workgroups in which they are placed? How much each printer prints, how many color prints, and what the costs of ink and paper are? What about the safety of these information carriers?
“Collecting data alone is not enough. Understanding and making decisions based on the right information - with which partners and end users can be helped - is the real added value”, says Mark Kouwenberg, Sales Director of EuroForm A/S. “Where Managed Print Services initially concerned the consolidation of devices and the realization of initial savings, today, sustainability, security, continuity and supporting day-to-day processes are of paramount importance to the end user”.
To meet this change, Brother is now offering JetAdvice solutions and services to its partners and customers. JetAdvice Manager is the printer fleet managment 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 actionoriented reports covering the entire MPS life cycle. This allows Brother to add tangible value from all collected data to their customers and partners.
According to Frank Deneweth, Managing Director of Brother International Belgium NV/SA, 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”.
