As business models are changing, customers are now considering how they can modernize and move away from their existing, and often very complex, print infrastructure. With new technology trends, IT infrastructure is moving away from traditional on-premise data center hosting towards cloud based solutions. Reason being customers want to utilize the same “pay as you go” services in their print infrastructure as they are adopting with Cloud services providers like Microsoft, Amazon, Salesforce, and many more.
Traditional print infrastructure is often very complex and includes multiple print servers, additional infrastructure components, and a user setup that is difficult to support and maintain due to the nature of print driver configuration and device setup. This is further complicated by large organizations having a broad presence and a need for a distributed infrastructure, adding a substantial cost in terms of infrastructure investments and IT administration.
Imagine a solution where this administrative hassle and investment can be reduced significantly while providing customers with the ability to move the entire print infrastructure to the cloud. By utilizing a highly scalable Linux Server platform, we have come up with a new solution on how to minimize, or even completely remove, customer print servers and introduce an easy to use single print driver capability which enables customers to reduce or even eliminate their print administration and support overhead. Moving the entire print management solution to the cloud enables the customers to capitalize on the benefit of a “pay as you go” OPEX transaction instead of a CAPEX investment.
What is HCP:
EveryonePrint HCP is a cloud-based full stack print management platform capable of providing organizations with this flexibility and all benefits of a Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, while maintain all the traditional feature of a traditional print management solution.
EveryonePrint HCP is not only a SaaS offering, but also a cloud-based print management platform intended to enable solution providers to become a SaaS Print Management provider. EveryonePrint HCP is designed as a white label product and intended to enable service providers to offer and maintain their entire customer and reseller portfolio in the same highly scalable multi-tenancy cloud solution. This means that EveryonePrint HCP can enable Solution Providers to act as a SaaS provider and offer their customers all the benefits of a cloud-based print management solution.
EveryonePrint HCP is a cost-effective shortcut for you to become a cloud-based service provider almost instantly and enables you to offer your customers all the benefits of a subscription based service while eliminating the recurring cost of operating a dedicated Print Management environment.
You can either choose to host yourself or benefit from EveryonePrint as your hosting provider. In any case, you will benefit from the same highly scalable Linux technology and be able to reduce or even eliminate print servers and dramatically reduce TCO or CAPEX for your customers, and enable you to be the messenger of a strong business case to your customers.
In addition, being able to administer and host your entire customer portfolio from one centralized administration portal, you will not only optimize your own support efficiency, but also improve the service level and “time to solution” towards your customers.
By selecting EveryonePrint HCP as your print management platform, organizations and service providers will be able to benefit from all the advantages of the new cloud business models and still be able to benefit from all the standard features available in traditional on premise Print management solutions.
EveryonePrint HCP is designed to offer several hosting options depending on which business model is being used. EveryonePrint HCP can accommodate service providers having their own datacenter, service providers having no datacenter and also an on-premise private cloud solution for customers with high security requirements.
Hosted by EOP:
The platform can be installed in an EveryonePrint datacenter. This gives you, as a partner, the ability to provide a hosted print solution without an investment in a datacenter. You get full control of your customers and businesses through the admin portal as if it was installed in your own datacenter.
Hosted by you:
EveryonePrint HCP can also be installed in your datacenter. Allowing you to maximize your investment in your exiting datacenter and start delivering a hosted multi-tenant print solution to your customers, with your own brand.
Finally, for customers with high security concerns or customers that need to comply with special security and business regulations, EveryonePrint HCP can also be installed as an on-premise private cloud in the customers datacenter. In this scenario, customers can still benefit from a “pay as you go” monthly subscription while capitalizing on all the other benefits this solution provides.
