Printing is an integral part of daily operations for most businesses—big or small—yet it is still difficult to find the perfect set-up for each office. This is especially true for small to mid-size businesses with large printing outputs such as those in the finance, communications, and manufacturing industries. Even public institutions can struggle, and the main issue is typically finding cost-effective, integrated solutions that do not require heavy spending on servers and IT administrators.
Well, we have just what you need. Meet Samsung’s Business CoreTM Printing Solutions. It is packed with all the essentials, giving your business the document and output management that improve efficiency and agility. Thanks to Samsung’s eXtensible Open Architecture (XOA) platform, it does not require an extra server and is now fully compatible with lower hardware specification devices like A4 printers. And this suite of business printing solutions offers SMBs printing solutions that you probably thought to be a luxury only afforded by large enterprises.
Cost-effective Printing Solutions for SMB
4 Reasons SMBs will love Samsung’s Business CoreTM Printing Solutions:
- Extended compatibility with lower specification hardware devices
- Lower initial installation and overall maintenance cost
- Reduced printing cost with enhanced secure pull printing
- Improved printing practices thorough better monitoring
Integrated Printing Environment
Business CoreTM Printing Solutions offers an integrated printing environment with Samsung’s eXtensible Open Architecture (XOA). XOA is Samsung’s own open architecture platform that allows users to customize components and utilize different solutions. Various customized solutions (Business CoreTM Printing Solutions being only one of them) can be installed on Samsung printing devices that use one of the two types of XOA-Embedded (XOA-E) and web-based (XOA-Web).
XOA-E is a fully functional Java virtual machine, meaning that a Java app can run by itself on the device and act as its own server. XOA-Web is a lighter version based on standard web technologies, and it allows access to solutions running on a separate server of XOA-E devices. XOA-Web is available in lower-end A4 devices with lower hardware specifications. Samsung’s Business CoreTM Printing Solutions now supports XOA-Web A4 printers, along with XOA-E devices. Using an XOA-E device as a server, up to 5 XOA-Web devices can be connected to it. Therefore most, if not all, MFPs and printers in a small office can benefit equally from Business CoreTM Printing Solutions features without an additional server.
Improved Cost Efficiency
Business CoreTM Printing Solutions runs independently from a dedicated server, greatly reducing installation and maintenance costs. The Cloud Connector solution further removes the need for a separate server, as it provides powerful document scanning to and printing from widely used cloud-based services like Microsoft SharePoint® Online, Google Drive™, Evernote®, Dropbox™, and Hightail™.
Secure pull printing feature of SecuThru™ Lite 2 also helps reduce printing costs by eliminating unclaimed print jobs, as print job is only released when the user authenticates the release at the printing station. Protection of confidential documents from the wrong hands is guaranteed, too.
One-Step Document Handling and Management
Business CoreTM Printing Solutions also offers solutions for reducing cost through increased productivity. SmarThru™ Workflow Lite provides fast and easy document digitization with its one-touch scanning feature that allows automated document capture, scanning, categorization, and distribution of scanned documents to multiple pre-determined destinations such as e-mails and folders. If scanned documents have barcode or product numbers embedded, this process can completely be automated with OCR, Zone-OCR and barcode technology that recognizes the relevant index information.
Sustainable Printing Practices
Habitual and wasteful printing practices such as unnecessary color printing and paper waste can cost real money and put a strain on already tight budgets. Business CoreTM Printing Solutions enables businesses to track and monitor usage by each staff member, allowing administrators to encourage more sustainable printing practices.
Business CoreTM Printing Solutions is designed to offer SMBs greater business opportunities by providing a suite of solutions that enhance productivity and minimize cost, alleviating the typical hardships of running an SMB.
