Press Release YSoft SafeQ: a valuable office solution that secures all print activities and keeps costs under control Langenhagen, June 2014
Konica Minolta is supplementing its wide range of office application products with YSoft SafeQ, an innovative, feature-rich solution that enables central print administration while providing user and cost management meeting the highest safety requirements. The private cloud software solution is suitable for any business that requires increased productivity and efficiency from its print infrastructure. Thanks to its modularity, the new software can meet the needs of companies of any size or industry, from small, privately owned businesses to global enterprises and educational organisations. The YSoft SafeQ print management solution allows customers to control the whole print infrastructure centrally while also enabling companies to gain added value by reducing costs. For IT administrators, the completely harmonised and customisable web-based administration interface is one of a kind and instantly makes their daily work a little easier. The centrally installed office solution lets users release print jobs all around the world on any device in any location of the network, but centrally collects and accounts all print data across the network. Mobile printing makes it possible to submit print jobs more flexibly when on the go. Maximum efficiency, time saving and increased productivity are just some of the benefits. In order to ensure security, the new print management solution only grants authorised users access to the device to commission print jobs, copy or scan. It is also possible to assign rights for printing, copying and scanning to individual users according to their needs or job roles. YSoft SafeQ thereby prevents security breaches and provides extensive protection of sensitive data and information at all times. To keep costs under control, it is essential to monitor all print, copy and scan operations within an organisation. This is possible with YSoft SafeQ, which also offers a wide selection of detailed reports that help to optimise the print environment. Environmentally conscious companies, in particular, will benefit from green reports. These show how YSoft SafeQ 1
reduces paper waste, toner and energy consumption and demonstrate the positive effect on the environment by quantifying the natural resources that have been saved. For institutions wishing to charge for print services, YSoft SafeQ provides a comprehensive payment system including online/offline and even automatic recharging of user accounts for enhanced customer convenience. “YSoft SafeQ is an extremely scalable and intuitive print management solution which leaves nothing to be desired in regard to print security, central print management, user access rights, reporting and even charging for specific print operations. The modular and feature-based licensing scheme makes it ideal for any customer looking for an advanced print management solution”, says Florian Loske, Product Manager, International Marketing Division.
