Our proprietary Sentry solution dramatically reduces device downtime. Sentry automates the detection and reporting of many common service and maintenance issues which enables us to proactively manage your devices remotely 24/7.
Printer downtime is a massive headache in any office environment. A copier, printer multi-functional product (MFP) that unexpectedly experiences a fault or runs out of toner can cost hours of productivity and disrupt workflow for days in a busy office.
What’s more, out-of-order document output devices are a massive drain on the IT department’s time, accounting for an estimated 30%-40% of helpdesk calls in the average organisation. That is why companies need to put tools such as Itec Sentry in place to stay on top of service and maintenance issues in their document output infrastructure.
Introducing Itec Sentry
Sentry is a proprietary solution from Itec that automates the reporting of many common service and maintenance issues of document output devices (including printers, copiers, and MFPs) so that the company can manage these devices on your behalf in a more proactive manner. This powerful technology allows Itec to manage your infrastructure from a distance as effectively as it could if it had a technician on-site babysitting your devices 24 hours a day.
The solution alerts Itec as soon as an MFP experiences a fault so that it can dispatch a technician to sort out the problem – often before you even know about it. The end result is that you experience smoother workflow with less disruptive downtime. And it also makes manual meter readings and other admin distractions a thing of the past.
Maximising Performance With Remote Monitoring
Itec Sentry reduces the need for user intervention and boosts system uptime by automating a number of key processes and tasks:
Automated ordering of consumables: Sentry alerts the Itec service organisation directly when toner and other consumables are running low. That means a consumable delivery can be put into motion as soon as your consignment stock is approaching a predefined minimum.
Automated service notifications: When one of your devices in your organisation needs technical attention, it will automatically alert the Itec service organisation. Before a technician is dispatched, a remote analysis of the output device will inform Itec what onsite interventions are required.
Automated counter readings: Sentry makes your life simple with automated meter reading. The solution checks volumes at specified intervals and transmits the data to Itec for correct invoicing.
Thanks to Sentry, Itec knows nearly instantly when your print infrastructure needs intervention, without you needing to pick the phone up and order consumables or report a fault. And when the technician arrives at your premises to help you with a fault, he will already have the spares and information he needs to quickly resolve your problem.
- Optimised device uptime
- No user intervention required for toner or service orders
- Automated alert notifications, counter readings and billing info
- Proactive service – one visit to maintain multiple devices
- Easier fleet management and optimisation
Itec is the first office automation solutions provider in SA to offer sustainability solutions as a value added service to clients. Our Carbon Neutral initiative can enable you to neutralise the environmental impact of your printers, copiers and multi-function devices in a simple, auditable and sustainable manner.

Managed Print Services
Reduce your total document output costs by as much as 30% by allowing us to manage and maintain your print infrastructure. We will also optimise your unique document environment and consolidate and centralise your print infrastructure.
What Is A Managed Print Service
The process that Itec follows can be divided into three phases:
Firstly, Itec conducts an in-depth assessment of the client’s print environment, seeking a complete understanding of the volume of documents flowing through an organisation and the costs associated with printing, sharing and updating them, resulting in setting the benchmark outlining what the current situation is.
The second phase is about implementing a strategy that will reduce print costs. Companies could either choose to outsource the entire printer fleet to Itec or manage the environment themselves. In the second scenario, the company would implement print management software, printer consolidation and other tactics with Itec’s support to reduce costs.
Thirdly, companies need to monitor the print costs and volumes on an ongoing basis to ensure they are achieving the expected benefits.
The Benefits Of A Managed Print Services
The managed services provider should be able to reduce and manage costs of document output on the client’s behalf – and guarantee cost-savings with a predictable per-page cost.
The service provider may help the client to stop users from wasting consumables, or suggest consolidating and centralising printers, scanners, fax machines and other output devices. Managed service providers can help their clients reduce printing costs by looking at their existing print fleets and replacing ageing equipment where appropriate.
By opting for managed print services, companies can also free themselves from the time and expense it takes to manage print services and use these resources for their core businesses instead.
Printer downtime accounts for an estimated to 30% to 40% of all helpdesk calls in the average enterprise and can be a massive drain on both end-user and IT department productivity. Managed print services companies take this headache off clients’ hands.
Improve sustainability by using Managed Print Service: By rationalising your print infrastructure and helping you change and monitor print behaviour, Itec Managed Print Service (MPS) will help you reduce waste, and cut the energy and paper consumption of your devices. In addition, with our regular reviews to assess your environmental impact, and latest Managed Print Service solution we help you reduce your carbon footprint on the long term.
Companies can also avoid sinking their capital into printer hardware since they can buy print services on a monthly basis.
