The following solutions will be demonstrated within the OKI booth:

The solution transforms IT businesses from product-led to services-led, which decreases expenses and improves output-related efficiencies for end-users, and is the first of its kind to include hardware, software, service and support in one bundled offering.
  • Total Managed Print -- Total Managed Print (TMP) from OKI is a comprehensive MPS offering designed to reduce the costs of annual document output and increase workflow efficiencies. Total Managed Print removes the burden of printer ownership through print fleet optimization and management, including remote monitoring services and supplies replenishment.

  • PaperCut™ -- PaperCut MF is a print job accounting and management software that can work with both single- and multifunction printers, and open platform MFPs. The software helps organizations save money on excess and unauthorized printing by creating a secure and confidential printing environment. In addition, the software helps organizations account for -- and recoup the costs of -- printing and copying. Its three editions are suitable for work sites of all sizes, regardless of network environment or platform. The solution integrates easily with a variety of card reader systems available through OKI for easy authentication.
