Holbaek, Denmark, December 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- While previously, this service could have cost as much as €3,800 (£3,200 or $5,000) over the course of half a year, 3manager has decided to make its 3viewer application completely free - with a catch.
Participating businesses must provide feedback on how their experience was, as technical experts at the firm are still looking to make the system more usable for people across a wide range of industry backgrounds - including those with little IT experience.
So far, 3viewer has proven vital for a number of businesses. Its simple user interface allows executives to see how efficiently their printer network is being run.
For example, if an area has a well-built, sturdy expensive printer in an area of low traffic and is being under-utilized, while a cheaper, more fragile appliance is being used twice as much as its manufacturer intended, this could cost thousands of dollars a year in maintenance, downtime and procurement costs.
While this problem is traditionally very difficult to solve, all customers have to do with 3viewer is install it and quickly connect the software to their printer network.
Mibson, a cartoon assistant and 3manager's mascot, will then diagnose any problems and tell users exactly how their printer fleet could be made more efficient - potentially saving thousands of dollars.
But while previously networks with more than five printers only had access to a 14-day trial, they will now be able to test out the innovative cost optimization technology for a full-six months before making a purchasing decision.
However, as part of this deal, new users must give feedback as to how the service can be improved and will report back to 3manager support staff on how they benefited from using its services.
Interested parties should contact Siiri Nathalie Bruun at firstname.lastname@example.org and the trial will be arranged.
Commenting on the strategic change to its offering, Henrik Lundsholm, chief technical officer of 3viewer and co-founder of 3manager, said: "We've been overwhelmed at the positive reaction garnered from our 3viewer trials thus far, but we still want more market penetration and we hope this will be our way into the UK, US and Canadian marketplace."
"What we really want to see is people using this app in their everyday operations, so then we can monitor and optimize future firmware updates to be more appropriate for some of our larger clients
"But we're really excited by how many small businesses have taken up our software and this presents one of our biggest target markets from here on in.
Siiri Nathalie Bruun, sales area manager of 3manager, which operates the 3viewer service, said: "Scandinavians are well known for their love of Christmas and to mark this special time of year, we've decided to make our 3viewer app absolutely free to all clients for six months!
"Users will benefit from reduced procurement costs and financially optimized printer fleets - with some of our clients saving over $10,000 over the course of a year.
"But while our software has been successful, we're always looking for new ways to tap into the B2B market and make our product even better suited for wider market consumption.
"So from today, we'll be making 3viewer absolutely free for six months for any and all businesses, whether they have five printers or 5,000!"
