Automated Supplies

Your perfect business partner to help you succeed

 

Our cloud based service to monitor device status for service and supplies. It also enables print volumes and meter readings to be accessed remotely. It is provided free to all of our customers for the life of their contracts.

Pro-active Incident Alerts

Having remote visibility of the status of our clients’ fleet is key to delivering a well-managed responsive service. Through device alerts, triggers and graphical displays, responses can be immediate and pro-active service can be provided.

Meter Reporting

Device meter readings can be collected automatically, from networked, connected devices, eliminating the need for manual collections. This accurate and timely data can be used to analyse the fleet for continuous improvement opportunities, and for billing purposes.

Implementation of Datasharp Facilities Manager will provide you with a proactive service model in which any problems are anticipated and prevented before they take place and are fixed quickly after they occur. When something goes wrong with an MFD, information about the problem comes directly from the device, giving the service technician an accurate diagnosis. Datasharp FM allows the device to report the error condition immediately, letting the engineer arrive on site  before you even know there is a problem!

 

All communications are sent over HTTPS (Secure connection) and the info is limited to the stats of the devices only. (Meter readings and supplies levels) No other information is collected.

The collection agent network traffic during a Scan:
– The collection agent does not create any network traffic until a scan is initiated (by default, scans occur every 60 minutes depending on configuration).
– Once a scan has been initiated, the collection agent will create approximately 20 to 40 KB of bidirectional network traffic per device scanned.

Collection agent uploaded file size:
– The collection agent creates an encrypted file containing the scan information from each device that is then sent to our secure server to populate the web portal.
– The file size is approximately 5KB per device scanned
