features-diagram-03  Multifunction device Control Panel

 

I want to operate my mobile device the same way as my computer.

Direct operations from mobile devices

A specialized program is provided for mobile devices. Devices, users, and setting information specified on ApeosWare Management Suite 2 are applied to mobile devices to allow direct output and scanning by intuitive operations from the user interface. Devices to output and scan by using QR codes can also be setup easily.

  Mobile device user interface screen

Display the usage status / Making each employee more cost-conscious

I want all users to be cost-counscious.

Display the usage status on the control panel on login

Individual usage status can be displayed in monetary amounts. You can also show each user's gap from administrator targets for color printing, 2 sided printing, Pages per Side, and so on. This information can be hidden for those who have met the targets. It reduces the burdens of the administrator while raising cost-consciousness of users.

features-diagram-23 

Create accounting reports / Facilitating cost reduction and optimal deployment of devices

I want to know the usage status of devices so I can optimize their locations and reduce overuse.

Creating over thirty different types of reports

A wide-range of reports can be created on the web browser using collected job log information such as the users of devices, sheets that are output, paper sizes, and time. The report function has been dramatically enhanced in ApeosWare Management Suite 2. A variety of reports can be created across five categories.     

 

Executive summary report

Device usage report by user

Electricity usage report

 

Main features
    • Web-based accounting reports
    • Custom settings
    • Various output formats (Web/PDF/Office documents)

Image Log Control* / Strengthening security by preventing and tracking information leak

      • * Optional.

I want to prevent information leak and ensure traceability.

Deter information leakage

Any documents that have been copied, printed, scanned or sent / received by fax will be stored as images along with relevant process details and device information. These features allow administrators monitor document handling activity by individual users as well as groups. And by combining the system’s management tools with other authentication functions - such as device passwords and IC cards - user activity is easily tracked, greatly deterring the occurrence of information leakage.

features-diagram-30 

Trace leaks

When classified documents containing personal or other confidential information are leaked, you can find the responsible party by searching job logs and document content obtained from automatic OCR* - effectively where the system will show you how and when a leak occurred.

  • * Optional.

features-diagram-31 

Monitor image logs and notify admins*

To monitor document handling, simply pre-programme search criteria or keywords and let Image Log Management automatically search for relevant documents. Reports are then generated and sent to administrators via e-mail at designated intervals determined by importance. All reports are saved for future reference and can be categorised by users or groups, assigned varying degrees of importance, and displayed by the year or month. This feature significantly reduces the possibility of information leakage caused by misuse of multifunction printers and other similar devices.

  • * Optional.

features-diagram-32 

 

Management of devices / Reduce burden of settings by assigning groups

With the increasing number of devices, the burden on the administrator also increases.

Organize and manage settings information

Device groups can be created and devices to manage can be registered to the group. It is possible to centrally manage settings information and to batch configure device settings. Resetting devices is easy even in case of a device malfunction.

 

Email notifications of device statuses

This function monitors the status of devices and sends notifications by email. Problems such as a lack of paper or paper jams can be handled in a timely manner.

Centrally manage device panel settings

Buttons on the control panel of devices can be registered in batches from the server to drastically reduce the time for installation.

Monitoring device settings

Provides central monitoring of device security to reduce administrative tasks

Security monitoring setting provides batch setting of security options of multifunction machines, printers, and other devices. This function also detects unintended setting changes and notifies the administrators.
Also, this function periodically and automatically restores such device settings to maintain the required security level, reducing the operational tasks of the administrator.
