    Fuji Xerox Offers Comprehensive Suite of Cost Management and Control Solutions

    Asia Pacific, 13 February 2008 - Fuji Xerox, the Document Company, today announced a comprehensive suite of cost management and control solutions with its partners – Equitrac, BEAR Solutions and Softlog – targeting corporate customers, as well as those in the education, legal and professional sectors.

    With increased focus on bottom-line, businesses are looking for affordable and practical solutions that help them control, manage and even recover costs associated with printing, copying, scanning and faxing. Fuji Xerox and its partners empower and enable businesses to achieve this at our customers’ fingertips: at the MFD (multi-function device) level.

    Saito Masahiko, General Manager, Product Marketing from Fuji Xerox Asia Pacific said, “Fuji Xerox’s Apeos technology, which is based on SOA architecture, and our MFD-based technology enable multi-function devices to integrate easily into existing business systems. This has given us the advantage in pursuing partnerships with leading business systems providers.

    “Working with Equitrac, BEAR Solutions and Softlog, Fuji Xerox offers a comprehensive and extensive range of intelligent cost management and control solutions for customers from various sectors.”


    With Apeos technology, Equitrac Office software is seamlessly integrated to the Fuji Xerox multi-function devices (MFDs) to track, analyse, and even allocate expenses for every page that an employee sends to any networked printer, copier or multifunction device. As a result, business managers are able to make informed decisions on the optimal quantity of equipment; redirect output from high cost-per-page desktop printers to conveniently-located, highly efficient Fuji Xerox devices; increase user satisfaction by deploying equipment for maximum efficiency; enforce quotas on colour output; simplify IT operations and support; and maximise the return on IT resources.

    Equitrac developed an exclusive card reader that is embedded in Fuji Xerox MFDs, rather than an external terminal. In addition, Equitrac’s ‘Follow-You-Printing™’ feature allows users to print from any Fuji Xerox device on the network directly from the device UI.

    Phil Heafey, Managing Director, Equitrac Asia Pacific, said: “Using Fuji Xerox’s Apeos technology, Equitrac has been able to develop advanced features, which in addition to an exclusive embedded card reader include designation of quotas for the number of colour copies a user can print, and allowing all functionalities to be easily accessed from the ApeosPort UI.”

    BEAR Solution

    BEAR’s CMS/IP (cost management system over IP communication) cost management modules enable organisations and institutions to track and manage costs ranging from photocopying, printing, internet usage, point-of-sale purchases, vending machines and even parking. Accurate tracking and management of photocopying and network printing costs need no longer be an administrative chore. The Fuji Xerox and BEAR solution even allows for top-up of cash cards via web and terminal.

    More importantly for educational institutions, transactions and reporting are in realtime allowing for instant analysis and accountability. With the existing hardware partnership with BEAR, customers in the education sector can now enjoy innovative and customised solutions that are easy to implement at low cost.

    Kier Morrison of BEAR Solutions --”Leveraging this partnership we are able to integrate our solutions easily and seamlessly with Fuji Xerox MFDs. We can tailor our solutions based on customers’ requirements, and implementation is easy and accomplished at a low cost.”


    The softlog.onboard application enables organisations to control and recover costs associated with copying, printing, faxing and scanning, eliminating the need for traditional cost recovery workstations. Interacting directly with the Fuji Xerox touch screen, organisations can allocate work to specific departments, clients or projects.

    The solution also tracks documents transmitted by email, monitors postage, room hire, taxi fares, credit cards, couriers and sundry costs. The application is customisable and multi-site compatible. It delivers a range of automated reporting, detailed queries and extensive management features.

    Mike Fairclough, Managing Director, Stratatel Softlog – “This partnership delivers an integrated cost management solution to our customers. The integration allows users of softlog.onboard direct interaction through Fuji Xerox touch screen providing new flexibility in cost management solutions and greater utilisation of customer hardware investment.”
