Lexmark, a Lexington, Kentucky-based imaging solutions company, announced that its Cloud Print Management (CPM) offering is now available to its channel partners. By extending its CPM technology to the channel, Lexmark partners can leverage cloud technology to reduce costs by providing a cloud-based printing solution that also reduces the necessary volume of on-site infrastructure.
“Today’s print customers care about more than just the quality of the device or cost per page,” said Sammy Kinlaw, Lexmark vice president of worldwide channel and OEM sales. “Customers are focused on eliminating server infrastructure, implementing new technologies, and improving security – and now Lexmark partners can deliver this through Lexmark Cloud Print Management.”
Lexmark enables partners to offer a complete suite of cloud services including Cloud Connector, Cloud Fleet Management and Cloud Print Management. Offering simple per-device, per month pricing, the strategy promises financing flexibility and simplified selling, plus real-time analytics.
In addition to providing the efficiencies of a cloud-based service, Lexmark partners can help their customers adopt a stronger approach to document and device security, close document security gaps with secure print release, and access around-the-clock cloud server monitoring.
