Novitex Launches New Cloud Print Service for Enterprises
The service provides users with transparency into all of the costs associated with fleet management--including ink, which is one of the highest MPS line items.Novitex Enterprise Solutions, which was known for a generation as Pitney Bowes Management Services before spinning off about a year ago, on Nov. 11 launched a new cloud-based managed print services package. Novitex uses a vendor-agnostic, data-driven approach to handling an enterprise's on-premises and mobile print services and does it by enabling employees to print documents from virtually any device to any nearby printer on the fly, if necessary. The cloud print service joins a growing market of competitors that includes Google Print, Cortado, Lantronix, HP CloudPrint, ThinPrint, Microsoft OneDrive, Cisco-Xerox and several others. The new service provides users with transparency into all of the costs associated with fleet management—including ink, which is one of the highest MPS line items. Fifty-five percent of a Fortune 500 company's total printing costs are spent on ink, the company said.
"Most Fortune 500 companies aren't managing their own printing suites anymore; they've brought in outside service providers to do it for them," Irina Novoselsky, head of business development at Novitex, told eWEEK. "However, it was still done in that old-fashioned, very siloed [on-premises] way. We bring our own approach with our service in the cloud."
