    July 14, 2016 — Dulles, Virginia — Digitek, an industry-leading provider of business growth tools, innovative services and top brand products that help resellers, copier dealers and office supply dealers to compete and win in the imaging space, announced that the company will co-sponsor a free webinar with BPO Media on July 20 at 2 p.m. EST titled “Should You Outsource Your Business Services? When to Leave it to the Experts.” The event is being co-presented with The Imaging Channel.

    The webinar is part of Digitek’s 2016 Thought Leadership Webinar Series, which delivers thought-provoking online events to the imaging industry on business and technology topics that help business leaders grow their businesses in an ever-changing market. The July 20 event will include

    • The short and long term benefits of outsourcing
    • What services dealers should – and should not – outsource
    • How to find the right knowledge and expertise
    • Special considerations for the SMB looking to contract out services

    “It’s more challenging than ever to win and retain customers today. Companies we speak with in the imaging industry have seen their market share shrink,” says Aaron Dyck, management consultant with Digitek. As a result, there’s less money in the budget to pay for essentials like new technology and hardware, let alone hiring and training top sales people, or maintaining an in-house marketing department to build and manage the company website, social media and lead generation.”

    “Many SMBs are either outsourcing business services or are seriously considering it, and by attending this webinar dealers will get the information they need to make the right decision for their organization.”

    The webinar will be presented on Wednesday, July 20, 11 a.m. PST/2 p.m. EST. Register here: http://www.anymeeting.com/PIID=EC55D68780493D

    Dallas, Texas and Brno, Czech Republic, May 17, 2016 – Y Soft, a leading enterprise office solutions provider, today announced new hardware solutions that complement the company’s flagship workflow solutions platform,YSoft SafeQ. The hardware products, YSoft SafeQube 2, YSoft Terminal Pro 4, and YSoft USB Card Reader 3, provide organizations cost-reduction opportunities in print management infrastructure and options for extending the investment of their existing printer fleet.

    Earlier this year, Y Soft announced a major update to YSoft SafeQ. The update extended YSoft SafeQ’s core benefits: reducing print costs, increasing document security and improving employee productivity through custom document capture and automated workflows.

    In a recent report, Gartner noted: “Given relatively flat IT budgets, IT leaders can best make available more funds for digital business by lowering the costs to "keep the lights on" — collectively known as "run" costs. Since infrastructure and operations (I&O) comprises two-thirds of overall IT run costs, I&O is the primary area for reducing expenses.”

    With these new hardware solutions for YSoft SafeQ, organizations have additional options to further reduce print infrastructure costs and extend the investment in their current fleet of multifunctional devices (MFDs). The hardware solutions are:

    ·  YSoft SafeQube 2. Expensive servers often drive the high cost of print services. By using SafeQube 2, a lightweight appliance, typically 2-4 times fewer servers can be used to support print services. When used with Client Based Print RoamingTM (CBPR), a software module in YSoft SafeQ, SafeQube 2 serves as a local connection point for the MFD’s user interface, to perform authentication tasks and data collection for reporting reducing hardware costs.

    ·  YSoft Terminal Pro 4. While SafeQ is embedded into the MFDS of the world’s most popular brands, there are situations where a customer may want a hardware terminal interface to the MFD. Terminal Pro 4’s large, 7-inch capacitive touch screen provides a consistent user interface when an organization has multiple MFD brands or when the printer doesn’t support an embedded solution. In this way, organizations can realize the cost-savings of print management, while extending the investment in their current printer fleet.

    The Terminal Pro 4 is also the user interface panel in YSoft’s family of 3D printers, YSoft be3D DeeRed -- a professional 3D printer for large object prototyping and small volume manufacturing -- and YSoft be3D eDee, a 3D printer with print management and accounting system for the education market. 

    ·  USB Card Reader 3. Designed to slot into YSoft Terminal Pro 4 or as a stand-alone with Y Soft’s existing embedded terminals, the USB Card Reader 3 is a small form-factor device that reads cards such as those commonly used for building access making authentication at the MFD easy and fast for users. The family of card readers uses LED indicator lights to confirm positive or negative authentication access.

    “Unlike our competitors, Y Soft is the only workflow solutions platform provider that designs, manufactures and tests our own hardware solutions. Customers are assured that our hardware works with our software and do not have to cobble together disparate solutions and live with incompatibilities,” said Václav Muchna, Y Soft CEO and co-founder.

    Additional information about YSoft SafeQ can be found on the company’s newly redesigned website at www.ysoft.com.

    DALLAS, TX and BRNO, Czech Republic – March 22, 2016 – Y Soft, a leading enterprise office solutions provider, today announced YSoft SafeQ platform, a new version of the company’s flagship enterprise print management solution. YSoft SafeQ platform is the only solution that truly integrates print management and document capture workflow, provides a seamless solution for both 3D and 2D printers and includes a mobile app for secure printing no matter the brand of printer. 

    The SafeQ platform provides a one-stop solution for organizations seeking the benefits of print management and managed content services (MCS) and builds on the product’s reputation for reducing print services costs by 30 and, in some cases up to 50%, improving workflow productivity and increasing document security. 

    However, today’s organizations are increasingly requiring managed content solutions for the digital capture, processing and distribution of documents into 3rd party document storage and retrieval systems and other enterprise applications. 

    According to a recent AIIM Market Intelligence Report[1], 57% of IT/document management professionals are looking to automate more processes; 27% need to increase the speed of delivery to the next process and 26% want to improve security and compliance. 

    Commenting on the major update to SafeQ, Y Soft CEO and Co-Founder Václav Muchna said, “With our platform approach to enterprise office solutions, organizations have a resource inY Soft that is dedicated to providing integrated, intelligent office solutions. Adding document capture, processing and delivery to SafeQ is the first step in building a robust platform solution.” 

    Y Soft’s global network of partners shared their thoughts on video of what YSoft SafeQ platform means to them and to their enterprise customers. 

    In addition to MCS, the platform includes new ways to further reduce costs including: 

    ·  Client Based Print Roaming - Print Roaming, which enables users to print from any printer in the environment, is now expanded giving the option to have complex tasks associated with printing done on the client workstation. This means fewer and less expensive servers are needed to support existing and scale for new users. 

    ·  Multitenancy - uses the shared economy concept allowing print service providers to manage multiple customers using one instance of YSoft SafeQ where total costs for hardware and software are shared amongst several companies 

    ·  YSoft SafeQ Mobile Terminal - a mobile app that can be used with any multifunction device but is also a cost saving choice for devices without an embedded terminal option 

    In a separate announcement, Y Soft also introduced YSoft be3D eDee, the first 3D printer integrated with YSoft SafeQ offering comprehensive print management, workflow and an accounting system.   

    YSoft SafeQ Platform Packaging and Availability 

    The platform is offered in four Suites: YSoft SafeQ Enterprise Suite, YSoft SafeQ Workflow Suite, YSoft SafeQ Print Management Suite and YSoft SafeQ Print Management Suite LD (Limited Devices).
