SEOUL, June 25 (Korea Bizwire)–Samsung Electronics has signed a deal with Chilean solution provider, Administradora de Documentos S.A. (ADSA), to supply 51 A4 mono laser printers with cloud printing technology to Universidad de Andres Bello of Chile and has begun installing them on June 13.
This is the first contract on Samsung’s behalf of providing the cloud printing solution in coordination with the local solution company. The contract will help those students who want to hand in their assignments using their mobile devices while on the move and reflected on the rapidly-transforming Chilean IT market environment.
From now on, by pressing the print button on their smartphone, 45,000 students of the university will be able to save their assignments on to the cloud server and later print them with any one of the printers that are located in multiple places in the college.
For providing the service, Samsung utilized some of the local technologies. The cloud server is the one developed by the ADSA and the printing service’s payment system is provided by the Chilean Internet payment service provider, Webpay, as well. Webpay’s transaction service allows credit card information to be registered to student ID and payment for the printing only with the ID.
Furthermore, Korea’s leading IT company is in progress of service testing with Universidad de las Americas and Universidad Santo Tomas of Chile as well, to provide the same printing solution to the total of 70,000 students.
The head of Samsung Electronics’ strategic marketing department said, “This case stands as a paragon of providing customized solutions by cooperating with local solution providers based on our company’s diverse product line-ups. We look to expand the service further on to convenience stores, airports and other places in Chile, and develop more of new customized business models such as this one.”
