Konica Minolta NSI Output Manager – Managed Print Queues

Want a comprehensive output management product that gives your company control over what, when, and how you produce and deliver information? If so, then you may be interested to know that Konica Minolta (Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc.) and Notable Solutions announced the new NSi Output Manager system which will be made available for Konica Minolta bizhub MFPs. It’s a fully-integrated print management solution that works well for both office and enterprise environments. What is does is allow companies a convenient and secure way to manage the production, routing, and delivery of all printed information going to a particular machine or set of machines.

The Konica Minolta NSI Output Manager is now available with the company’s bizhub machines. The print queue management software lets customers engage in secure printing so that all output can be accounted for. This is a reliable and managed method for printing sensitive documents in an “on-demand” fashion within an office environment. What the NSi Output Manager does to safeguard confidential information is hold all print requests in a print queue until they are released by a manager (the authorized user). Authentication can either be completed on the front panel of the bizhub MFP via user name and password, or a security card can be used. Once the administrator sets up the rules, Konica Minolta NSI Output Manager determines the types of print jobs that each type of user can send to the device (with or without authorization). It will also recommend a preferred printer based on each job’s page count (and whether it is black and white or color) and even monitors consumable levels and status.

Konica Minolta NSI Output Manager Compatibility

While NSI Output Manager is currently compatible with a number of manufacturers (including Ricoh, Xerox, Canon and HP), the announcement about Konica Minolta bizhub printers and MFP compatibility brings it to a new brand.

“We are excited to offer NSi Output Manager as an integrated solution for customers to not only better manage their printing processes, but also streamline and secure output. Konica Minolta’s long-standing strategic partnership with Notable Solutions ensures customers can facilitate more efficient information sharing and improved cost controls across their entire organization.”

– Sam Errigo, Senior Vice President, Business Intelligence Services, Konica Minolta

When used with bizhub MFPs, NSi Output Manager can provide significant management of an organization’s business processes and improve overall efficiencies. It can reduce unnecessary printing, ensures documents are printed to the correct machine, and even provide a level of security that is almost impossible to accomplish without this or a similar solution.
