Sistemas Contino Becomes First Reseller to Deploy SuppliesIQ in Mexico

Sistemas Contino, a leading provider of imaging solutions is the first reseller in Mexico to implement the SuppliesIQ supplies fulfillment and optimization solution from Virtulytix. The patented SuppliesIQ service reduces the waste associated with early replacement of toner cartridges and unnecessary shipping costs by up to 85% using predictive analytics technology. For many companies this helps to minimize the environmental waste associated with replacing printer cartridges before they are empty while helping to maximize supplies inventory.

Gerardo Poo Gil, Director General of Sistemas Contino says, “We are focused on optimizing our business and ensuring we have the most cost-effective method for delivering print services to our clients. Implementing SuppliesIQ allows us to reduce our costs and provide enhanced services to our clients.”

Acccording to Scott Hornbuckle, President of Virtulytix, “SuppliesIQ is the first predictive solution which accurately identifies when each toner cartridge in each printer will run empty based on the individual use, print environment, and other dynamics.” This is a unique solution which was developed by Virtulytix using the IBM Watson IoT analytics platform and custom coding to provide:

·       Real time, accurate prediction of the future date when the cartridge will be empty.

·       Unique predictions for each cartridge, not just for each printer.

·       Cloud based solution compatible with any fleet management software platform using standard API interfaces and file formats.

·       Secure – does not capture customer information; your data is safe.  We comply with…. Whatever we comply with.

·       Vendor agnostic – SuppliesIQ works with all makes and models of printers.

·       Ultra high throughput, the Supplies IQ platform makes predictions for tens of thousands of devices per hour.

The patented SuppliesIQ technology utilizes three different predictive algorithms on each cartridge, with the third algorithm dynamically picking the best prediction. By leveraging machine learning, the solution actually becomes more accurate the longer it is used and is able to incorporate both seasonality variations and other statistical models to develop the most accurate prediction.

SuppliesIQ is the first cloud based, fleet management software tested to be twice as accurate as linear algorithm-based fleet management tools for estimating when toner cartridges will be empty. In the same testing, the solution provided up to 85% savings of lost toner relative to unmanaged solutions.
