Bluetooth Printer Management

Bluetooth Printer Management provides real-time visibility into the metrics on most Link-OS printers that are connected via Bluetooth to your Android handheld devices. Bluetooth Printer Management consists of the Bluetooth Connector and Connection Manager applications. These applications on the mobile computer create a gateway between the Bluetooth connected printer and either Zebra’s Printer Profile Manager Enterprise or SOTI MobiControl, providing real-time visibility and management. As a result, you can update, monitor, troubleshoot and proactively prevent printer-related issues that can result in downtime, all from a remote central location, in real time.

Benefits

–Simplifies and lowers cost of printer management

–Maximize printer uptime and utilization for a stronger Return on Asset (ROA)

–Dramatically improves return on investment (ROI) and total cost of ownership (TCO)
