Businesses all over the world are now starting to feel the benefits of working with printing networks they can trust. From academic institutions to major telecoms operators to constructors, IT decision makers everywhere have discovered that Samsung Printing Solutions’ range of printing and document management options can make offices smarter and more dynamic.
Just as importantly, however, Samsung believes printing freedom is not simply a one-way process whereby a provider offers services to a company. That is the value of having a UX that you can customize, namely Samsung’s Android-based Smart UX Center, part of Samsung’s multi-function printers (MFPs) lineup.
The Smart UX Center lets Samsung and partners companies work with you to tailor-make solutions that fit your own unique needs. Modifying your Smart UX experience can enable your office to grow smarter and more effectively – as three global organizations recently discovered.
A University Customizes Its Public Printing Solutions
One large university was looking to upgrade its printing network and purchase hundreds of new printers. In planning this move, the school came to the conclusion that its focus should be providing its staff and students with an enhanced printing experience.
So, instead of just buying new hardware, the university decided it wanted to make use of its own in-house resources to improve on this front. The university boasts a range of developers and technical experts, assets it wished to make use of as part of its printer network overhaul.
Samsung teamed up with the university and several partners to create a customized package, combining Safecom, a variety of document management systems such as Dynamic Workflow, and mobile printing options.
The university’s printing stations were linked together with web-based e-payment portals to create more than 300 printing locations around the campus. As part of the new system, Samsung also signed a four-year deal to provide managed print solutions (MPS).
The relationship between Samsung and the university is ongoing. The second phase will see students take part in an Android app competition, providing suggestions and ideas that will help improve the customized service even further. The university is set to present its models to other institutes of higher learning as an example of excellence in innovation and best practices within the education industry.
A Telecom Integrates Printing with the IoT
At one telecom and IPTV provider, managers realized that there was a need within the company to create a print network that could integrate with Internet of Things (IoT)-related innovations. Ideally, the company realized, it required a network that could work in harmony with their maintenance and repair partner, too.
In addition to bringing in a large fleet of devices, the Samsung deal called for customization. A tailored menu and specific interface translations, created in conjunction with other Samsung partners ended up providing the solution.
The two companies struck a four-year MPS contract, which also includes provisions pertaining to secure printing and fleet management software.
Overhauling a Construction Company
One major construction company came to the realization that when the time came to upgrade its office printers and print management software, simply buying new machines would not suffice.
More than a simple hardware and software overhaul, the construction company wanted to become the first truly smart office in its country to cement its position as a foremost construction specialists.
That is why, when Samsung and the company were working on their deal, they made provisions to include a partnership with a local document intelligence and service company. The parties also arranged to integrate a range of document management solutions, including PrinterOn, Equitrac, Cloud Connector and Document Workflow Core.
These are also integrated with other Samsung solutions, and include touch screen and tablet interfaces, displays, video walls and e-boards. The result has been the creation of a productive, cost-effective range of practicable solutions. The Samsung Smart Office Solution is a so-called “total solution concept,” one that can support all types of customers, from end to end.
Around the world, Samsung has worked with its partners to create optimized printing networks and document management solutions that meet the very precise needs of a very different set of consumers.
Companies all over the globe are starting to realize that they no longer have to compromise. Making do with printer fleet that are merely acceptable is a thing of the past – Samsung Printing Solutions helps businesses create networks they will find outstanding. With the flexibility and convenience of the Smart UX Center and other Samsung innovations, your company can shape new solutions, customized to the very special way your office works.
