Y Soft, Konica Minolta score Macquarie University deal

Macquarie University Macquarie University

Macquarie University has chosen office solutions provider Y Soft and integrated solutions and managed services provider Konica Minolta to manage 240 devices across the university, servicing 60,000 students.

The YSoft SafeQ solution and Konica Minlta managed print services solution are being delivered entirely on an Amazon Web Services private cloud.

Konica Minolta provides Macquarie University’s 240 printers and multifunction devices, with YSoft SafeQ as the print management and document management software.

Adam O’Neill, managing director, Y Soft Australia, said, "Macquarie University has a reputation for innovation and for delivering an exceptional student experience. Implementing the YSoft SafeQ solution to manage printing more efficiently will help the university continue to offer innovative solutions that help students get the most out of their educational experience."

O’Neill said that with YSoft SafeQ, Macquarie University would be able to offer students and staff secure printing options such as pull-print with authentication, so their confidential or sensitive documents can’t be stolen from shared printers.

“Furthermore, detailed and comprehensive reporting capabilities will let Macquarie University manage print costs and ensure its printer fleet is right-sized to suit requirements across the university,” O’Neill said.

David Reeve, chief information officer, Macquarie University, said, “Macquarie University is investing in the future and it was important to choose a print management solution that could scale to meet the needs of both our current students and the needs of our future students”.

“Having a cloud-based solution gives us greater flexibility, speed of deployment as well as significant savings in operational expense. However, more importantly, as a University we are very focused on the sustainability aspects of all our solutions and YSoft SafeQ provides us with valuable information and ways to manage the environmental impact of printing.

"The combination of YSoft SafeQ and Konica Minolta means Macquarie staff and students can experience a seamless printing experience regardless of what device or location they’re printing from, including mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. They can print and scan from the device closest to them, and protect the integrity of their work with robust security features. This will reduce many of the anxieties and much of the time wasted when printing on campus, and will let students get on with learning."

As a cloud-hosted solution, YSoft SafeQ will scale easily to match Macquarie University’s growth predictions while meeting high availability, redundancy, and failover requirements. The solution leverages AWS monitoring and alerts to ensure the solution is operating effectively.

Eric Holtsmark, general manager, Strategy – Transformation & Technology, Konica Minolta, said, "Macquarie University is a cutting-edge university and this new managed print services agreement will enhance this. It will let Macquarie University manage print costs more effectively and provide students and staff with features that make it easier for them to print and scan quickly, securely, and from anywhere on campus. Konica Minolta is pleased to play a pivotal role in providing this solution to Macquarie University and looks forward to continuing to support the university as it grows in the future."
