Sharp Vietnam Electronics Co., Ltd. has named directprint.io as a printing software partner with Sharp’s multifunction printers (MFPs) in Vietnam. The new partnership, which builds on directprint.io’s existing relationship with Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, will see Sharp Vietnam offer directprint.io’s serverless print management solution to its direct and indirect customer base, providing users with an improved and efficient way of working.
In March this year, directprint.io was certified as a Sharp-compatible software product, and joined the Sharp Partner Program. directprint.io is pre-configured for over 500 Sharp models and enables customers to quickly and efficiently deploy Sharp MFPs, and secure, control, and track printing across Chromebooks, Windows and macOS environments. directprint.io’s cloud-based admin console and universal print driver provide a seamless interface between Sharp’s printing devices and the cloud-based print management platform, enabling Sharp-native features such as secure print, advanced finishing options, and accounting codes to be seamlessly enabled and deployed.
David Jenkins CEO, directprint.io said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Sharp and expand our presence into Southeast Asia. This new partnership will play a key role in our strategy to empower more organisations to create a secure, cloud managed print infrastructure, eliminate expensive-to-maintain on-premise infrastructure, streamline printer management and reduce the time spent troubleshooting printer issues.”
“Cloud management is now firmly in the mainstream, a great way to secure tracking and save time on printing jobs. directprint.io’s universal print driver ensures a consistent print experience across all platforms, such as Chromebooks, Windows and MacOS, and continues to add more value to our customers and channel partners,” said Nathan Hsiao, managing director, Sharp Vietnam.
directprint.io is a feature-rich, transparent SaaS offering that allows users to quickly and effectively deploy, secure, control, and track print management. The platform is zero-touch and once installed, no configuration is needed for new devices or end-users; security is built-in, local network printing ensures prints jobs never leave the customer’s network.
directprint.io delivers full, real-time print analytics and offers competitive per-seat pricing for Chromebooks, Windows, and macOS environments.
