DALLAS, TX and BRNO, Czech Republic – March 22, 2016 – Y Soft, a leading enterprise office solutions provider, today announced YSoft SafeQ Platform, a new version of the company’s flagship enterprise print management solution. YSoft SafeQ Platform is the only solution that truly integrates print management and document capture workflow, provides a seamless solution for both 3D and 2D printers and includes a mobile app for secure printing no matter the brand of printer.
The SafeQ Platform provides a one-stop solution for organizations seeking the benefits of print management and managed content services (MCS) and builds on the product’s reputation for reducing print services costs by 30 and, in some cases up to 50%, improving workflow productivity and increasing document security.
However, today’s organizations are increasingly requiring managed content solutions for the digital capture, processing and distribution of documents into 3rd party document storage and retrieval systems and other enterprise applications.
According to a recent AIIM Market Intelligence Report, 57% of IT/document management professionals are looking to automate more processes; 27% need to increase the speed of delivery to the next process and 26% want to improve security and compliance.
Commenting on the major update to SafeQ, Y Soft CEO and Co-Founder Václav Muchna said, “With our platform approach to enterprise office solutions, organizations have a resource in
Y Soft that is dedicated to providing integrated, intelligent office solutions. Adding document capture, processing and delivery to SafeQ is the first step in building a robust Platform solution.”
In addition to MCS, the Platform includes new ways to further reduce costs including:
· Client Based Print Roaming – Print Roaming, which enables users to print from any printer in the environment, is now expanded giving the option to have complex tasks associated with printing done on the client workstation. This means fewer and less expensive servers are needed to support existing and scale for new users.
· Multitenancy – uses the shared economy concept allowing print service providers to manage multiple customers using one instance of YSoft SafeQ where total costs for hardware and software are shared amongst several companies
· YSoft SafeQ Mobile Terminal – a mobile app that can be used with any multifunction device but is also a cost saving choice for devices without an embedded terminal option
YSoft SafeQ Platform Packaging and Availability
The Platform is offered in four Suites: YSoft SafeQ Enterprise Suite, YSoft SafeQ Workflow Suite, YSoft SafeQ Print Management Suite and YSoft SafeQ Print Management Suite LD (Limited Devices). Early access to the Suites will begin during Q2 2016. Detailed information about the Suites and new capabilities in SafeQ 6 including universal print drivers and finishing options can be found at ysoft.com/safeq6.
Y Soft also introduced YSoft be3DeDee, the first 3D printer integrated with YSoft SafeQ offering comprehensive print management, workflow and an accounting system.
eDee is a desktop 3D printer integrated with YSoft SafeQ, the leading print management, workflow and accounting solution. With YSoft SafeQ already available for 2D printers offering reduced print services costs, increased document security and improved productivity, educational institutions can now obtain the benefits of print management across their entire 2D and 3D printer fleets.
Increasingly, educational institutions are adopting fleets of 3D printers and making them available to students and staff on campus-wide networks.
Onvia, a research company that tracks government purchasing contracts including those in education, noted that “Teaching with 3D printers will be the norm. In 2016, the amount of 3D printing purchases continue to grow as these printers are accepted as an essential part of school makerspaces and as prices for the printers continue to fall.” Y Soft providesexamples of student 3D print projects on its website.
As a networked resource, 3D printers bring similar and unique challenges to 2D printers. Unique challenges include an understanding of the total time/3D material cost per print job; access control/door locks to prevent the object being taken or the print job stopped by another student; and efficient workflows to access available 3D printers or easily reprint a 3D object. eDee’s print management tools solve these unique challenges.
Key to the YSoft Be3D eDee solution is a fully automated, enclosed desktop 3D printer. With an intuitive 7-inch touch screen panel and print bed auto-calibration, eDee produces high quality objects with accuracy and speed. Designed with “safety-first” in mind, its features increase safe operation and integrity of the print object.
“In education, where 3D printer adoption is growing rapidly, we see that administrators need to manage and audit 3D printer use and costs as they do with 2D printers,” said Vaclav Muchna,
Y Soft CEO and co-founder. “With YSoft be3D eDee, we are the first to offer educational institutions a seamless solution that provides all the benefits of print management for their 2D and growing 3D printer fleets.”
YSoft be3D eDee will be available under early access in Q2 2016 through Y Soft’s global network of channel partners. Additional information about eDee, including printer specifications, can be found at www.ysoft.com/edee.
