YSoft SafeQ

Comprehensive printing and scanning management

Manage printing, scanning, users and costs

Keeping a handle on everything to do with printing and scanning can be a headache for any organisation.

You want printing to be easy, so that no-one's productivity is hampered. You want to stay in control of what you're spending on print, and you want to avoid waste. And you want to reduce the risk of confidential information falling into the wrong hands. And if, like many organisations today, you're on a digital transformation journey, you want scanning to be as simple as printing, with easy, automated routing of scans to the right destinations for efficient document management, and ready access to electronic documents for those who need it.

You can do all of that with Konica Minolta's YSoft SafeQ, a comprehensive print and scanning management solution. It integrates with our bizhub multifunctional printers (MFPs) and other devices, including production presses, to help you:

  • Make printing and document capture more flexible, efficient and secure
  • Understand and manage the cost of document printing and capture operations
  • Improve information security
  • Centralise user management

Customer benefits

YSoft SafeQ makes it easy for organisations to take control of their printing and scanning operations. With centralised user management, you can manage access rights (to colour printing or specific devices, for example) and enforce authentication to release print jobs.

As well as improving information security and reducing waste, user authentication adds flexibility and boosts productivity, as users can print to any device on your network. You can even allow them to print from their mobile devices.

Workflows that automate scanning management remove complexity from document capture and transform digital processes into the efficiency drivers your organisation expects. In addition to built-in workflows (such as scan-to-home and scan-to-email) you can add customised scripts to route scans to other locations, such as an on-premise document management system (DMS) or a cloud-based document storage solution. Advanced workflows provide additional functionality, such as optical character recognition (OCR), image cleanup, blank page removal, creation of searchable PDFs, and scan to editable Microsoft Word or Excel files for further processing.
