PrintFleet Rolls out First Integration with HP Smart Device Services for Fleet-Monitoring

PrintFleet, a provider of printer-monitoring software and solutions that’s based in Ontario, Canada, today announced that it’s released the first stage of its integration with HP Inc.’s Smart Device Services (SDS) for improved management of HP printer and copier/MFP fleets.

Available through the latest versions of DCA Pulse and PrintFleet Optimizer (PFO), PrintFleet says resellers can take advantage of a simple two-click installation process to enable the HP SDS integration. PFO users may also choose to enable the integration at any time during the initial DCA Pulse installation, or at any point after the initial installation.

HP introduced Smart Device Services in September 2016 along with a new A3 portfolio. Smart Device Services consists of a set of cloud-based tools and device-based sensing capabilities that are designed to enhance servicing for HP printers and MFPs, as it monitors and diagnoses device status to minimize downtime and reduce costs. For instance, the service can anticipate when parts need servicing before the part fails, and also monitors ink and toner status, avoiding premature ink and toner replacement. It’s available to HP resellers at no charge for all contracted devices using HP Original supplies.

The new PrintFleet release also provides device registration, mSKU and genuine-cartridge identification, as well as the ability to remotely reboot devices. Both mKSU and genuine-cartridge identification are said to be important features in enabling enhanced services available from HP, such as providing higher page yields from supply cartridges, and dictating whether certain device operations are accessible.

PrintFleet is holding an introductory webinar for the new release on Wednesday, September 6th, at 8:00 AM EST (2:00 PM EST). Those interested can register here.
