Mutoh America, Inc. makes it even easier to stay productive by connecting your Mutoh printers with the new ValueJet Status Monitor (VSM) version 3.04 and VSM Mobile Version 1.01. Exclusively for use with the latest Mutoh ValueJet printers, VSM Mobile version 1.01 is free and available now for the iPhone, Android devices will be released soon.
With VSM Mobile, you can check the status of your Mutoh printer and receive notifications of problems in real-time animation right on your handheld device. VSM Mobile ver1.01 has added features such as: output status to view current print job process, ink level status, printer status such as "open covers" and "lever up" notifications, and email alerts to warn you of low ink levels and full waste tanks. Plus, soon you will be able to check the part life of Mutoh printers, assisting in machine maintenance.
After registering your new printer on VSM Mobile, the status of your printer in the network that is connected to the VSM can be checked from your handheld. Printer functions are monitored by VSM to ensure the printer is providing the user consistent output and notifies the operator via email or smart phone if there is a problem.
"Mutoh continues to add features to VSM that make it more user friendly and valuable to print shops on the go," shares David Conrad, Marketing Manager for Mutoh America, Inc. "VSM with VSM Mobile is one of Mutoh's Smart Printing technologies that gives more flexibility to customers when managing their printers and print jobs, while still being able to focus on other areas of their business. Now operators can multitask with peace of mind because VSM Mobile includes an email notification system to alert the operator to several pre-programmed messages including printer status, low ink, media end and more."
VSM Mobile version 1.01 is currently available online for select ValueJet printers and requires VSM version 3.04 to be installed.
