Business fleets comprising multifunction printers by Sharp can now run MyQ X to its full potential, thanks to the recent optimization and release of MyQ Sharp Terminal 8.1.
MyQ’s print management software line MyQ X now fully supports Sharp printer fleets, with a special embedded application for the multifunction device itself — the MyQ Embedded terminal. The MFP’s interactive touch panel can thus be enhanced with MyQ’s interface and display personalized functions to the user.
MyQ Sharp 8.1 features available to the IT administrator include:
- Advanced per-job accounting options connected to projects, credit and quota
- Detailed reports both built-in and compatible with BI tools
- Guest Account feature
- Certified Web UI Accessibility
Web accessibility and WCAG
In order to make ICT accessible to everyone, the European Union adopted a European standard for digital accessibility EN 301 549, which follows Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 and its application to EU public sector websites is required since September 2020.
MyQ optimizied its web-based UI for users and administrators to meet the guidelines’ requirements, and after extensive testing received BITV accreditation compliant with WCAG 2.1 level AA.
Improvements available to the user of the Sharp MFP:
- One-click Easy Scan to the user’s e-mail, network folder or cloud drive
- Advanced scanning and document conversion thanks to OCR engine
- Functions that are personalized to reflect individual user habits
- Touchless login and printing via the MyQ X Mobile Client
Printing with the MyQ X Mobile Client
The MyQ X Embedded terminal offers a contactless QR login option which allows the user to authenticate at the printer using the MyQ X Mobile Client installed on their smartphone. After logging in, the user can print all queued documents, select files from history or favorites, or alternatively submit new jobs and set their printing options without needing to touch the device’s panel.
The MyQ X Mobile Client also displays the current status of the user’s credit and/or quota and enables the user to recharge their credit directly from the application using vouchers. Logging in via face and fingerprint recognition is also supported, as is light and dark mode.
Starting today, MyQ Partners can download the RTM version of the MyQ Sharp Terminal v8.1 from the MyQ Partner Portal.
