Milan, Italy – 06 October 2016 – MPS Monitor Srl announced today that its eXplorer Data Collection Agent (DCA) is now available as an Embedded Application on new MFP and IoT platforms, in addition to the traditional Windows one.
The new versions allow all the printing devices in a network to be monitored, using a simple Embedded App installed on a multifunction Samsung XOA/E or Kyocera HyPAS. If these MFPs are not present, a RASPBERRY PI2/PI3 running Windows 10 IoT Core, or even an Apple computer with MAC OSX operating system can be used.
The use of Embedded versions of MPS Monitor ensure that end users and Dealers experience maximum availability of data, allowing remote management and an efficient and accurate control of all aspects of operations, from page volumes produced to consumables supply and replacement needs, without having to install any software or use resources on the customer’s systems (PCs or Servers).
Embedded versions of the MPS Monitor have been produced also thanks to the close partnership between MPS Monitor and Oberon Service, an authorised Samsung XOA and Kyocera HyPAS developer that has deep skills and specific tools to develop embedded applications for multifunction devices.
“Installing Embedded MPS Monitor natively on MFP devices and on MiniPCs maximises the benefits provided by the Internet of Things to the world of printers, making Managed Print Services adoption more easy and transparent for the user. This translates into huge advantages by eliminating waste and reducing costs and environmental impact of printing activities. We are happy to help our customers be more productive while following sustainable ecological practices, particularly in an area of such high economic and environmental impact as office printing,” says Nicola De Blasi, CEO of MPS Monitor Srl.
“MPS Monitor’s leadership position in the Printer Monitoring market is further strengthened with this announcement, which adds great value and flexibility to the solution, clearly differentiating it from competitors. We transformed the printing device into an active element of the management platform, leveraging its intelligence by use of the most advanced development technologies,” says Giorgio Gesi, CEO of Oberon Service Srl. “We expect to release more Embedded versions for other Brands shortly, so that we can provide this option to the majority of our customers and Dealers.”
