2. Server-based Solutions
Samsung printers offer a number of server-based solutions that provide additional productivity and security for enterprise print networks. Below are 2 examples of strategic partnerships with key partners that resulted in serious software offerings.
Document Imaging with Nuance
Samsung provides three software packages that provide document imaging solutions through the company’s partnership with Nuance Communications.
The strategic partnership with Nuance enables Samsung to sell and distribute document imaging solutions, including:
- Equitrac: a print management software solution that allows businesses to print documents regardless of their physical location through a pull-printing system.
- AutoStore: an electronic document capture solution that automatically recognizes and stores various types of user documents and information captured from multifunction printers (MFP), smartphones, copiers and scanners.
- SafeCom: helps consolidate and standardize different types of printing jobs without installing additional print drivers.
Improved Security with Ubiquitech
Samsung’s enhanced partnership with Ubiquitech brings improved print and document security into the business world. This security solution adds a user-authentication layer, ensuring that only registered personnel can access the system and further, documents can only be shared with authorized employees as well. This helps to ensure a company’s confidential information stays private.
Moreover, all jobs done via Ubiquitech solutions are accurately tracked and registered for monitoring later. To further enhance enterprise versatility, these solutions run on Windows, IBM Power and IBM System Z, which allows for seamless integration of Samsung printers into a company’s existing IT infrastructure.
3. Cloud-based Solutions
Today’s SMBs and their workers are increasingly incorporating mobility into their everyday work lives, which can add additional challenges for a company’s IT manager. Perhaps your company has several employees who regularly work remotely from home or from offices outside HQ. Perhaps your company is growing and now has offices in several locations, separated by time and space.
Situations like these can make an IT admin’s job very challenging, as monitoring servers, networks, and various security protocols become a more difficult task.
Below is our most powerful cloud-based solution to date.
