The Challenge

 Consistency

  • The client’s printing technology involved multiple devices from different suppliers. 
  • The client lacked printing consistency and end users were challenged with needing to know different print hardware and software technologies at each location. 

Security

  • The client needed a product with the ability to enforce secure printing and ensure maximum privacy for their patients. 

Accountability

  • The client’s volume and cost information was difficult to review and measure across all departments and locations, making it challenging to manage a budget.
  • The client was limited in its ability to control the use and costs of color printing. 

The Solution

After detailed analysis and study of the client’s print environment, Loffler was able to determine a solution to address each of the client’s needs.

An integrated software solution, uniFLOW facilitates intelligent control and analysis of printing and copying functions. Described as the only print and scan management system in the market with completely integrated mobile print capabilities, uniFLOW an on-premise, server-based application software. Individuals can print directly from their mobile devices and control the release of their jobs through that mobile device. All of this is enabled as part of a company’s managed print infrastructure while allowing them to retain full cost control, print, and network security.

What’s intriguing about uniFLOW is that it allows users to submit jobs in several ways, including e-mail, uploading a job via a Web browser, and printing directly from an application using an Internet-enabled driver. For iPhone and iPad users, uniFLOW supports direct printing from those devices as well. There is a uniFLOW native app for Apple iOS devices such as the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. The app enables the mobile device to identify the printer by a QR (Quick Response) code, select a print job from the user’s personal print queue, make the appropriate print settings, and release the job.  

The Results

With uniFLOW technology, security and print use and cost tracking was improved, increasing the accuracy of invoices and the company’s bottom line. Choosing Loffler saved the provider tens of thousands of dollars and increased productivity.
