How it Works
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.
Our new DCA includes several enhancements for improved data collection, measurement, and analysis.
Created from manufacturer specifications, model definition files offer precise targeting of critical device data points.
Set independent scan intervals for device discovery, meters, supplies, errors, and attributes for timely data collection.
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®.
Configure all available settings, retrieve logs, initiate scans, and run MIB walks from the comfort of your office.
Our next-generation DCA is currently in development. Our team is working to build a best-in-class data collection agent, combining functionality from our three device management solutions.
We support customers currently using PrintFleet (DCA 4.x and DCA Pulse), FMAudit (Onsite), and Print Audit (ICE) data collection agents. Contact us to find the DCA that's right for your business.
For devices that are not on a network, our Local Print Agents (LPAs) offer the ability to track printing from locally connected print devices by collecting information directly from the device.
