Brother International Europe announces a global partnership with software manufacturer Kofax®. The collaboration offers an integrated print management solution for a number of Brother laser printers, all-in-ones and inkjet models. Specialized Brother sales and pre-sales teams will in the future implement Kofax ControlSuite within companies and organizations so that these documents can be managed, secure and fully track and manage information flows.
“Kofax is happy to partner with Brother,” said Chris Strammiello, senior vice president of Channels at Kofax. “Their award-winning devices and our industry-leading security and automation software will jointly provide a valuable and comprehensive solution.”
ControlSuite is the next generation software solution for managing, capturing, and securing printing. Information and document flows from mobile and desktop devices can be centrally protected and managed. ControlSuite secures and regulates virtually every aspect of document distribution within a company. The uniform printing, scanning and workflow processes that are set up ensure unevolable productivity and efficiency.
“Companies are more likely to suffer harm as a result of a document-related breach than from a data breach”, says Chris Marshall, Director of Brother SMB Printing & Solutions. “The combination of Brother devices with ControlSuite provides a solution to the most important challenge of secure document management: ensuring that information gets to the right person, using één unified, streamlined solution that reduces errors and increases productivity.”
ControlSuite is excellent to combine with Brother’s professional laser printers and enables companies to manage documents securely. In addition, automatic audit trails can be set up, tracking how documents are opened and used.
“For companies of all sizes, IT, and in particular information security, plays a critical role in document management and compliance,” says Jacqui Hendriks, Research Manager – European Imaging, Printing and Document Solutions at IDC. “As it implements a new document management strategy, IT professionals need to find solutions that provide strong security for changing and changing workplace demands. Working with Kofax, Brother offers a wider range of security solutions to help organizations in their digital transformation.”
Brother’s product range with the implemented Kofax ControlSuite solution will be available in 2020.
