Calgary, Alberta, Canada, 2013/07/09 - Print Audit has once again improved its local tracking in Facilities Manager with the ability to track detailed information from locally connected HP devices via the HP SNMP Proxy Agent - PrintAudit.com.
Print Audit® has become known for having the most advanced local device tracking in the industry and has once again improved its local tracking in Facilities Manager with the ability to track detailed information from locally connected HP devices. HP’s free SNMP Proxy Agent enables the Print Audit Information Collection Engine (ICE) to gather details such as remaining toner levels, page counts and the device status from PC-connected HP devices and upload the information into Facilities Manager.
Print Audit Facilities Manager is a powerful, easy to use managed print services tool designed to remotely collect meter reads, automate supplies fulfillment and report service information for managing fleets of printers, copiers, fax machines and multi-function devices. The product is currently used by over 900 dealers worldwide and boasts a 40% market share in the United States.
The HP SNMP Proxy Agent is a client-based software tool created by HP that allows device monitoring systems to discover and manage devices that are not connected directly to the network. The Proxy Agent is able to poll PC-connected devices for the same type of information that is requested from network-connected devices by the Print Audit ICE. When the Proxy Agent is used in conjunction with Facilities Manager, MPS providers can now gather significantly more detail from local devices than what has been possible in the past.
