Remote Data Collection

Managed print software to help office technology providers streamline supplies and service

How it Works

We collect print data from 25,000+ models to deliver accurate, reliable insights

Our device management solutions are powered by remote data collection agents (DCAs). The DCA is a software application that collects critical meter, performance, and supply level data from multifunction print devices. The DCA can be installed on a non-dedicated server, at a client location, or resident in the firmware of a device.

Key Features

Our new DCA includes several enhancements for improved data collection, measurement, and analysis.

Model Definition Files

Created from manufacturer specifications, model definition files offer precise targeting of critical device data points.

Custom Scan Intervals

Set independent scan intervals for device discovery, meters, supplies, errors, and attributes for timely data collection.

Differential Transmission

Only data that has changed or values that have been updated are transmitted to the web interface.


DCA Pulse provides a heartbeat to PrintFleet Central confirming that the DCA is active, reducing the number of stale DCAs.


Our DCA can be deployed in the traditional Windows® environment as well as macOS®, Linux®, and Raspberry Pi®.

Remote Management

Configure all available settings, retrieve logs, initiate scans, and run MIB walks from the comfort of your office.
