Y Soft announces cloud-based print management services

13 Jul 2020

Y Soft, an enterprise workflow solutions provider, has announced SAFEQ Cloud, a new family of cloud print management and hosted infrastructure services, comprised of YSoft SAFEQ CloudPro and YSoft SAFEQ Breeze. 

The new services remove the need for locally managed print infrastructure, like servers, and reduces the cost of providing and running print services.

SAFEQ CloudPro offers print management features with a reserved infrastructure ideal for the enterprise.

Additionally, SAFEQ CloudPro is offered with a choice of resiliency levels, Core, Ultra, and Elite, each providing increasingly higher resiliency and performance. 

A Custom level further enables Y Soft to meet infrastructure requirements on an individual customer basis, including hosting using a customer’s/partner’s own cloud provider. 

SAFEQ CloudPro can be used with or without a Y Soft Edge device.

SAFEQ Breeze is designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) that do not have or do not want to hire IT staff to manage their print services. 

With core print management features and a shared hosted infrastructure, SAFEQ Breeze can also be used with or without a Y Soft Edge device.

The Y Soft Edge device offers businesses additional document security as job processing is done within the business’ own private and secure network, and only metadata travels securely to the cloud. 

It is also well suited for remote locations with low bandwidth or latency issues.

“Companies of every size are leveraging the cloud to help lower IT costs, reduce IT burden, and speed up their digital transformation initiatives. However, each company has different requirements, and the YSoft SAFEQ Cloud family offers businesses the versatility and flexibility needed to assist organisations no matter where they are on their cloud journey,” says IDC imaging, printing, and document solutions research vice president Robert Palmer.

“With YSoft SAFEQ CloudPro and YSoft SAFEQ Breeze, we are delivering on our mission to help businesses run smarter. We significantly invested in our product development to introduce a native cloud solution that efficiently scales in the cloud as businesses’ needs grow. We will continue to add to our cloud family of services and functionalities to meet the needs of our partners and customers,” Y Soft co-founder and CEO Václav Muchna adds. 

“Y Soft’s future is firmly rooted in the cloud.”

Both new cloud-based services are typically less expensive than on-premise solutions and come with a monthly or annual subscription. 

The YSoft SAFEQ Cloud family of services are hosted on Microsoft Azure and is managed by Y Soft. Updates, maintenance, and a premium service level are included.

SAFEQ Breeze with the Y Soft Edge Device is now available as a customer beta programme.
