Okidata Americas announced on November 19 to sign an agreement with Lantronix to resell their best-selling printing mobile solution, the xPrintServer iOS printer server device, that allows users to print directly from their Apple devices without the need of any mobile printing application.
“By offering the xPrintServer with our single- and multi-function printers, OKI Data is able to provide mobile printing solutions to help optimize performance within specific workgroup environments quickly, easily, and cost-effectively,” said Keith Fenton, Product Planning Manager for MFP Software and Solutions at OKI Data Americas.
The xPrintServer simply works by enabling wireless printing for iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones using their printer. It eliminates the hassles of installing mobile printing applications, software or sending print jobs to your printer’s e-mail. The best thing is the xPrintServer works with more than 4,000 branded printers. Plus, it supports multiple printers and virtually unlimited iOS devices.
It also offers the following features and functions:
- Advanced configurations via web interface
- Printer User Management / Advanced User Configuration
- Remote Authentication / Active Directory
- Configuration Save / Restore
- Proxy Server Support
The agreement between Okidata and Lantronix was said to strengthen their partnership that was formed last June 2012. According to Okidata official press release, it will offer the xPrintServer along with an array of compatible Okidata laser printers and multifunction printers for their customers, resellers and distributors of their machines and Okidata printer supplies.
“This agreement bolsters OKI Data’s position as a valued printing solutions provider to our enterprise customers,” said Fenton.
“Our reseller partnership with OKI Data Americas boosts our brand awareness and expands our reach and distribution channels,” said Mark D. Tullio, Vice President of worldwide marketing for Lantronix. “By having OKI Data as a partner, we can better understand how large workgroups are using the device. In turn, this feedback provides us with useful information so that we can improve the features and functionality of the products as well as the user experience within the enterprise environment.”
