Samsung Electronics announced that the company has expanded its worldwide partnership with Danish independent software vendor Ubiquitech for its Print Management solutions. Ubiquitech’s software has been certified by Samsung for its multi-function printer (MFP) solutions, including the MultiXpress series with a Smart UX Center based on Android. With this agreement, Samsung will be able to better serve enterprise consumers with IBM Z and Power system solutions.
Through Ubiquitech’s print management solutions, Samsung printing products can help improve printing security in business environments. The solution identifies registered users and only allows documents to be printed by or shared with authorized personnel, preventing confidential information from being leaked. Moreover, Ubiquitech solutions make sure all print tasks are tracked and registered. Users can see an overview of all printing tasks on the Smart UX display and reduce duplicate or unnecessary printing.
Ubiquitech’s solutions can run on Windows, IBM Power and IBM System Z, allowing enterprise customers to easily implement Samsung’s printing solutions within their current IT strategy. Samsung expects to be able to enable its range of customers – from small and medium-sized businesses to enterprises – can centralize their print management systems, helping them to save on their total cost of ownership (TCO) for printing products.
“Ubiquitech’s technically strong and flexible solutions give the enterprise customer the possibility to consolidate all Windows Print Servers into a single IBM System Z or Power platform; potentially releasing significant savings”, said Klaus Kristiansen, CEO, Ubiquitech.
“Security has been an essential business focus for Samsung,” said David SW Song, Senior Vice President of Printing Solutions Business at Samsung Electronics. “Through the strategic alliance with Ubiquitech, Samsung will provide highly secure, efficient, and easy-to-use printing solutions that seamlessly fit into the IT and office ecosystem.”
