Ships Ink B.V., a leading provider of global maritime printing solutions, have announced that they will be partnering with MPS Monitor Srl, a top developer of cloud-based software. Marking the starting point of an easy to use cloud based printer fleet management software platform, this partnership will be capable of remotely monitoring the condition of all network printers installed on board vessels and extract accurate usage data from the installed printing consumables in all printers.
Once the data is collected, the platform will immediately analyse and present the necessary reports, based on which a full printing operation optimisation process can take place.
“This software will not only enable Ships Ink. to easily present at least 35-60% savings annually on our customers’ current printing consumables expenditures. On average, each sea vessel has between 10 to 25 printers on board. Depending on the vessels’ trade area, vessel type and personal preferences, all printers may have different outputs, not necessarily matching the printers’ specifications. We intend to optimise this by not only offering our usual branded high capacity and high quality printing consumables, but also by offering the right printer for each specific on board location, like the Ship’s office, the Engine Control Room or the Bridge.”
Bart Mennega, Global Sales Manager at Ships Ink.
“MPS Monitor developed and customised the Ships Ink. printer fleet management portal in such a way that even the total CO2 emission, mostly based on the power consumption and paper output of a printer, can be calculated and analysed. Thanks to Bart’s insight and understanding of the shipping industry in general, we immediately realised this will be an important added value which (they) could contribute to the current ESG strategies of Ship Owners and Ship Management Companies, next to minimising and collecting plastic waste coming from empty toners and cartridges which Ships Ink. has been doing already so far.”
Mark Kouwenberg, Sales Director at MPS Monitor.
