Samsung Printing Solutions last year hosted the Eureka! Beyond Printer event, with participants from around the world taking part in an online contest. The topic was Samsung’s innovative Android-powered Smart UX Center and its ever-expanding collection of downloadable apps and widgets.
Some 100,000 visitors stopped by the event’s page, and Samsung received hundreds of exceptional entries.
The event was divided into two separate categories. While one called for potential app ideas, the other, called Share My Story, asked users to come forward with real-life explanations of how the Smart UX Center had changed the way they work.
Among the winners was a French IT solution company named EUKLES Solutions. EUKLES Solutions explained how teaming up with Samsung had helped the company boost not only sales, but to develop a larger customer base.
EUKLES Solutions has been active in the digitization and document management business for over a decade. It has developed the innovative e-DocPro ECM solution, software that allows companies to digitize and manage their corporate documents.
However, EUKLES Solutions’ executives wanted to come up with a way to maximize their software’s usability, develop more timesaving and intuitive document management features that would help boost e-DocPro’s functionality and compatibility.
Using Samsung’s SDK, EUKLES Solutions decided to develop a version of the e-DocPro solution for the Android platform, with Samsung’s support – a solution that would maximize Samsung multi-function printers (MFP)’s 10-inch tablet PC-like touchscreen interface.
The French company wanted to give Samsung MFP users the ability to manage their digitization procedures – as well as classify, manage and even share their documents directly from their MFP. The idea was to cut out time-wasting trips to and from employees’ workstations, and allow the printer to do the hard work.
Reaping the Benefits
Using Samsung’s software development kit (SDK), EUKLES Solutions successfully created a connector that linked Samsung MFPs to the e-DocPro platform.
This allowed customers to enjoy easy access to all their stored and archived documents on a 100 percent cloud-based solution that works not only with PCs, but also with smartphones and tablets.
The partnership, says EUKLES Solutions, has been successful. By developing the connector, and following on from this, EUKLES Solutions has contracted with four Samsung resellers, as well as 24 others with non-Samsung affiliated resellers. Profits increased by around €66,000. EUKLES Solutions has also showcased its now-Android compatible solution at various international events, using Samsung MFPs.
Changing Printing Landscapes
Samsung’s Smart UX platform is helping revolutionize the print landscape.
EUKLES Solutions’ success story is one of many revealed at the Eureka! Beyond printer event. Many more take place every year, all around the world. With the Smart UX paradigm, both companies and Android developers are free to start creating opportunities for themselves, using Samsung’s open-architecture, Android-powered environment as their starting point.
