Today’s work environments are more dispersed and diverse than ever before. Lexmark CFM makes it possible for service providers to remotely monitor, manage and secure your print infrastructure—all without ever visiting on-site.
Lexmark's extended library of eSF apps are now available through Lexmark Cloud Fleet Management (CFM), for easier access and deployment.
For small or medium sized businesses, the challenges of maintaining print infrastructure are considerable. The diversity of IT environments, unique needs and possible far-ranging locations can add complexity and cost.
Lexmark CFM is a cloud-based device management and configuration solution that works for both customers and service providers. It enables improved configuration, support and uptime with the convenience of remote secure access.
Today’s printers and MFPs benefit from firmware and security updates. Manually performing such updates can be time-consuming and expensive.
With Lexmark CFM, there’s no need to touch every machine. Your service provider can leverage Lexmark CFM to easily update your printer's firmware to the lastest releases. They can also apply security policies unique to your business, as well as specific files and settings to every device in a fleet, all without being on location.
Small and medium-size businesses often have constrained IT resources. Lexmark CFM gives your service provider control over device settings, security policies, firmware updates and workflow deployments of devices in remote locations or on networks that aren't easy to access—like those in a home office or satellite locations. And, Lexmark Cloud Bridge technology enables print devices to connect to Lexmark's cloud infrastructure and advanced managed print services without the need for additional hardware and software. What this means to you is less downtime, disruptions, delays and frustrations compared to traditional methods of support.
Lexmark CFM eliminates the guesswork and keeps everyone in the know with messages on the device touchscreen that notify you about service actions and device status, ultimately reducing repeat support calls for the same issue.
Your service provider will also receive detailed reporting that goes beyond basic page counts to help you optimise your fleet. The reports compile information about usage patterns, toner consumption and more to provide a complete picture of all devices and how they're performing.
