PrintFleet releases first version of HP Smart Device Services capability

PrintFleet (Kingston, Ontario and Zug, Switzerland), a global leader in print device monitoring software and solutions, has released the first stage of its integration with HP’s Smart Device Services (SDS) for improved HP printing device management. Available through the latest versions of DCA Pulse and PrintFleet Optimizer (PFO), resellers can take advantage of a simple, two-click install process to enable the HP SDS integration. Additionally, PFO users may choose to enable the integration at any time during the initial DCA Pulse install or at any point after an initial installation. Within this release, resellers will have device registration, mSKU and genuine cartridge identification, as well as the ability to remotely reboot devices. Both mKSU and genuine cartridge identification are important features in enabling enhanced services available from HP – such as facilitating higher yields from cartridges and dictating whether certain device operations are accessible.

“We’re very excited to work more closely with HP, helping our joint partners streamline services and enhance the value they can provide to their customers,” stated Chris McFarlane, President & CEO of PrintFleet. “This integration is a first step in creating more opportunities for advanced remote-device management capabilities.” PrintFleet connects businesses by providing timely reliable data that facilitates actionable information enabling the automation of processes within the printing and imaging industry. Its print-management solutions range from simple and rapid assessment, to advanced managed services offering comprehensive agnostic data collection, analysis and back-end support. Available in multiple languages, “PrintFleet solutions empower OEMs, resellers and distributors in over 100 countries to solve business challenges and foster growth,” the company added.
