Q: Do I have to buy new machines or can I use my existing equipment?
A: Not with Regency. We will work with your current machines with no pressure to purchase new equipment, no matter the manufacture or the model.
Q: I have offices in multiple locations; can we still participate in the program?
A: Not a problem, Regency can retrieve the necessary data no matter where that device is located. If they are networked on a regional level, a separate install of the software is all we need to collect the data for that region.
Q: Does MPS work for inkjet printers too?
A: It does not; however we can show you the cost savings you will incur by placing an MPS program in action, eliminating the need for expensive inkjet printers.
Q: Will installing the data collection software interfere with our network or compromise security?
A: Not at all. The PrintSmart™ software is secure and offers no threat to network security. The software operates through outbound communication only and communicated to the printing devices through SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol). Collected data is sent through HTTPS, the same security levels as internet banking. For more information, please visit our Common Questions for Networking.
Q: I have security and compliance requirements, will I lose those?A: Not at all. The software only collects the imaging device metrics necessary to manage a printing environment and never collects any personal or user information. The software SheetSmart™utilizes will not impact compliance of the following laws:
