PrintFleet & Photizo Group Working on Predictive Analytics
Thursday, November 5, 2015
PrintFleet Inc. has announced it has joined with Photizo Group to create a predictive analytics process for a just-in-time (JiT) toner delivery methodology.
In this agreement, PrintFleet and Photizo Group will combine their expertise in data collection, research and analysis of device, industry and external data to provide a robust JiT toner delivery methodology for the imaging industry. This predictive analytics process will greatly reduce costs and inappropriate toner shipments for all levels of the supply chain. Combined with LINK Supplies Fulfillment, a machine-to-machine data-driven automation of supplies delivery, these enhanced analytics will result in less waste and greater proactive delivery of imaging supplies.
"In concert with our clients, we have worked with Photizo Group, sharing data and resulting analytics for many years and look forward to creating a more robust JiT model for toner delivery for the imaging industry," said Chris McFarlane, CEO, PrintFleet. "As a first step, this will propel the imaging industry supply chain to the next level of efficiency and effectiveness. PrintFleet strives to ensure our partners can manage by fact; through this model we are taking it even further."
"We have worked with PrintFleet for several years and look forward to bringing a co-developed JiT automated toner delivery solution to the market," said Scott Hornbuckle, practice director – predictive analytics, Photizo Group. "In a market where operational efficiency is key, we are excited to leverage our expertise and investment in predictive analytics to create value for our clients in a way that directly impacts their business and financial results in a positive way."
