Happen Business and PrintSolv announce Managed Print Services Partnership

Published on October 13, 2009 in Computer Software, Technology


N/A (October 13, 2009) – Jim2 Photocopier Edition is an accounting and workflow software package specially developed to meet the specific needs of photocopier and office equipment dealers. It manages accounts, scheduling, aggregates billing and automates copier meter counts.

PrintSolv is the exclusive supplier of FMAudit hardware and software products in Australia and New Zealand. FMAudit software automatically collects meter reads/copy counts from a photocopier machine under contract and transmits information back to the business that supplies and maintains the machine.

All the information provided by FMAudit then needs to be manually processed, which is an administratively intensive exercise for a small business. The Happen Business and PrintSolv partnership will see Jim2 PhotoCopier Edition integrated with FM Audit to automate the processing of the meter readings including reordering of stock with the copier manufacturers and generating invoices for the customer.

The first integration will take place before the end of 2009 for Sheather & Merrigan Business Equipment in Newcastle, which has more than 1000 customer sites.

Paul Berger, Managing Director, Happen Business said, “Together, Jim2 Photocopier Edition and FM Audit represent a clear competitive advantage for office equipment and copier dealers by automating a lot of the administration tasks involved in running these operations.

“Jim2 integrates with FM Audit to completely automate the billing and invoicing process. For a business that handles hundreds or even thousands of machines under contract, this can represent huge administration savings each month.”

The combined Jim2/FM Audit solution will deliver the following benefits:
o less time taken collecting meter reads
o meter read information does NOT have to be re-entered into the business system of the copier dealer, Jim2 can read FM Audit information and process it automatically
o billing and invoicing can be automated in Jim2, thus speeding up the timing and accuracy of billing.

According to Andrew Tsiorvas, General Manager, PrintSolv, “This partnership between Happen Business and PrintSolv is a major technological step forward for office equipment dealers by combining two state-of-the-art technology products.
“It will significantly reduce the amount of administrative work required by the dealers freeing them up to concentrate on more strategic activities such as growing their businesses.”
