Brother Developing Software Alliances at Apps World

Apps World Europe 2014

MANCHESTER, England--()--Brother will showcase its solutions interface and latest mobile technologies at November’s Apps World conference in London.

Offering device and coding support for third-party apps, developers can now provide tailored solutions for a line-up of the global technology brand’s mobile and office-based print and scanning devices.

The Brother Solutions Interface (BSI) enables customised solutions to be built for - or integrated with - Brother’s machines using a centralised web-based server. It opens up endless opportunities to help businesses improve operations and reduce cost, wastage, and risk.

Richard Thomas, Senior Product Planning Manager at Brother International Europe, said: “Customised applications can unlock new capabilities in our machines – for pioneering document management within the office and beyond.

“Much of our hardware is suited to the SMB market, with big opportunities to tap into. Developers can help businesses take their document management to the next level, without hefty investment in machines designed for much larger organisations. For example, your customers could easily scan into your accountancy or document management solution, with a simple button press, improving usability and security at the same time.”

With mobility in mind, Brother has an impressive collection of scanners and printers for use on-the-move. Utilised by a variety of sectors – including emergency services, logistics and sales, they include Software Development Kits (SDK) for third-party integration.

Richard adds: “Developers can create truly personalised software solutions for an organisation’s specific needs. This might include bespoke menus, security settings, meta data capture and workflow management, as well as enhanced connectivity options like smartphone and tablet compatibility.”

Brother will be at Apps World (stand 149) from 12 – 13 November 2014.
