Synnex Australia has partnered with Danish-headquartered Printix to bring its cloud printing managed services platform to channel partners in Australia and New Zealand.
Printix offers a cloud-based infrastructure platform to allow managed service providers to control print environments, supporting users paired up with web-enabled workstations or any BYOD device to physical printers.
The platform replicates the on-premises print server environment in the cloud, centralising print queue management, automating configuration and delivering any required drivers.
Synnex Australia chief executive Kee Ong said the distributor had been in talks with Printix for the past year.
"We are excited to be launching a serverless and secure cloud print solution with Printix into the Australian channel," Ong said.
"We believe it will add immense value to our MSP resellers, particularly those that service clients with multiple offices. Synnex is continuing to invest in distributing solutions designed for MSP’s, and Printix is an innovative addition to the portfolio."
Printix said that the partnership with Synnex would help the vendor grow in the vertical market space and introduce its platform to the education and business markets.
“This will be a fantastic business relationship that brings significant value and increased momentum to our Australian activities," Printix chief executive Jesper Christiansen said.
"In partnering with Synnex, Australia’s IT managed services community, cloud providers and printer dealers can now confidently introduce to all their customers, a better and far more cost-effective printing service, using cloud technology designed for the modern workforce.
"In Synnex we have a trusted partner with the necessary capability, size and expertise to educate, deliver and support innovative SAAS applications like Printix. We very much look forward to a bright future.”
Earlier this week, Synnex Australia announced that it had gone live with a managed service finance package aiming to help smaller partners bundle hardware, software, licensing, cloud and professional services onto the same bill.
