Katun & PAE Business Expand Partnership in EAME
Gorinchem, The Netherlands – (December 2021) – Katun® Corporation, one of the world’s leading alternative suppliers to the office equipment industry, is pleased to announce expansion of its business partnership with PAE Business, based in the UK.
Printanista® – the latest device management solution from ECI Solutions, is the evolution of the Katun Dealer Fleet Management (KDFM) Premier & Monitor products based on the Print Audit platform and managing 20,000, 000 devices globally. The new solution offers Office Equipment Dealers the ability to manage an entire print environment, regardless of manufacturer, with a single integrated tool. Data collection, supply triggered alerts, ERP integration, MAC & LINUX environments – Printanista® does it all.
The Katun sales team is excited to be offering the market a solution that incorporates so many features – including a European server, the possibility to integrate thermal printing devices and “triage” capabilities (the ability to log into the device directly from the portal and manage firmware updates, device & user configurations). The Katun team will be setting up webinars with customers to highlight the expanded features of this new product that will be available in Q1-2022.
Katun is equally excited to announce the expansion of the PAE Business partnership to mutually propose the EveryonePrint solution to Katun’s EAME customers. The Office Equipment Channel has traditionally managed a mixed fleet of devices, which means different drivers, a lot of server maintenance and updates, together with a lot of different print standards to manage. EveryonePrint’s Hybrid Cloud Platform offers Dealers the possibility to become SAAS providers, eliminate printer servers and offer centralized support – bringing new value to dealers and end user customers / partners.
Initially Katun will be partnering with PAE Business to promote this product in the UK with planned expansion, as we are able to provide our customers with the technical support required. For more information please contact your local Katun sales representative.
According to Heidi Boller, General Manager of Katun EMEA, “The expansion of KDFM is exciting for the EMEA team and reinforces Katun’s strategy of being ‘More Than Just a Supplier’ to our ever-expanding community of customers and business partners. This further strengthens Katun’s position as a market leader supplying the industry with high quality products, programs and services that support a MPS Dealer’s drive to profit.”
