RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today announced a dynamic suite of printing solutions for mid-size to enterprise businesses.

With the XOA platform, Samsung can provide customized enterprise solutions integrated with multi-function printers and copiers to meet the specific requirements of a variety of customers in business, education, healthcare, government and more.
“We are excited that, after several years of mutual development and testing, Samsung is launching an XOA platform to support our partners’ value-added software solutions,” said Ron Nevo, senior manager of solutions marketing at Samsung Electronics America Enterprise Business Division. “Our goal is to combine the first class technology built into all of our printers and copiers with our partners’ unique applications to offer business users a broad spectrum of solutions for document management, secure printing, and cost-savings. We look forward to continuing to collaborate on the development of new, innovative solutions that enhance the user experience.”
Select Samsung A3 and A4 multi-function printing devices including the SCX-5935NX, SCX-6555NX, CLX-8540NX, CLX-9350ND, CLX-9250ND, SCX-8040ND and SCX-8030ND come complete and embedded with XOA and are capable of running the partners’ solutions with powerful functionality and an easy, intuitive user interface.
The Samsung XOA platform supports a range of partner print management offerings ranging from document output to security and accounting support, as well as supporting Samsung’s own unique software management solutions, including:
- Samsung SecuThru™ Office – An embedded application solution which provides printing security features for protecting intellectual assets and enabling convenient authentication such as employee’s badge and others.
- Samsung CounThru™ – A Managed Print Service (MPS) software solution that offers total visibility of printer and copier devices usage hosted under an outsourced service contract
- Samsung ScanThru™ – A solution that streamlines and simplifies document workflow by capturing paper and electronic documents and distributing them to predetermined destinations.
- Samsung SyncThru™ 5 – A printer fleet management software tool that increases the productivity of an organization by allowing the IT administrator, support staff and users to manage, monitor and diagnose multiple printing devices remotely.
Current Samsung partners with ready-to-go embedded XOA solutions include:
BITS offers One Stop Print Release, a cost-effective and simple, secure printing solution. It allows the user to print to a central queue using a Samsung print driver as if they are printing directly to the device. The user can then collect the print-out from any XOA enabled device at any time, following an authentication process. All activity is logged and can be reported for easy usage tracking.
DPD International’s GoldFax platform for Samsung XOA enables organizations to gain centralized control of their inbound and outbound faxing, without the need for multi-function peripheral fax kits or fax lines. Faxes are managed via the Internet through a GoldFax server. Users can send and receive faxes from any Samsung XOA device as well as through desktop applications and email. GoldFax reduces costs while increasing productivity as well as meeting security regulations.
