NSW Dealer Software Training 2015

KYOCERA Document Solutions is passionate about giving its customers the materials and training needed to better understand the technology that goes into making our printers and multifunction devices a leading brand.

NSW & Pacific Islands Dealer Manager Chris Rohwer hosted a two-day event for our valued Dealer Channel in New South Wales office.

“It’s a great opportunity for our dealers to meet each other and share experiences,” said Peter Wroblewski, Kyocera NSW General Manager.

Day 1:

The first day was a full-day software training session where Chris presented Kyocera-developed solutions, KYOeasyprint and Teaching Assistant, to over 18 dealers.

After each solution presentation our Sales Engineer Jamie Zois gave a live demonstration and answered many questions.

After lunch, Nuance teamed up with us to educate our dealers on Equitrac and eCopy.

The training session was a great atmosphere for dealers, letting them share tactics and stories with one another as well as network with other like businesses.

“The day was a great success with all of the dealers feeling more familiar with our software,” Chris said. “We’re excited about new potential business opportunities as a result.”

Day 2:

On the second day, we wanted to show our dealers that at Kyocera we work hard, but we play even harder so we headed on down to the Penrith Whitewater Stadium – which was used for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

After a fun but exhausting day out on the rapids, the team sat down for their last hoorah with a buffet lunch where they traded stories about the day.

“Whitewater rafting was awesome,” said Vince Cohen of North Tec. “Thanks to Chris and all of the Kyocera team for putting on dealer activities like this one. It’s very much appreciated and a great way to meet and network with other dealers.”

It seems things are just being made easier and easier for us. Can you give us some examples of where KYOCERA Cloud Connect could be used?

This week we are launching an exciting new software that will make life easier for our increasingly pressured educators! Teaching Assistant creates on-demand tests, grading and analysis documents and simplifies the time consuming task of examining and evaluating student performances. With no PC required Kyocera Teaching Assistant is an application that transforms your Kyocera device into an on-demand test creating, grading and analysis hub.

 We understand the demands of the education environment, that’s why we are offering a free 30-day, no-obligation trial! Just email us at marketing@dau.kyocera.com for more information.

Removing the pain of manual grade testing, Kyocera’s Teaching Assistant is easy to use and the finished product is an analytical and graphical PDF result with immediate detail that helps our educators benchmark student performance, identify weaknesses and prepare classroom instruction.

bubble-sheetAd hoc testing can be created at any point, giving educators the chance to create exams that would normally, due to time constraint, fall through the cracks. Apart from the obvious benefits mentioned previously, Teaching Assistant also enhances educator productivity and test and grading accuracy is made more efficient as manual grading is removed.  Teaching Assistant is extremely cost effective; costs are dramatically reduced as answer keys can be printed on plain paper, eliminating the need for special media and scanning systems.

Congratulations to the winner of the Global Service Technician Awards – Kyocera Document Solutions Australia 2012.

We were delighted that eighty four technicians, from our channel partners, registered for the region’s first Global Service Technician Award competing for the title of Best Kyocera Technician. Entrants for the competition weren’t just from Australia; other countries included New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, New Caledonia and Vanuatu.

The finals consisted of a theory exam, covering Kyocera hardware and software solutions, as well as a practical test on a TASKalfa 8000i where the technicians were asked to solve three error messages. If the contestant was able to finish the practical test within the time limit, they could move on to a bonus test relating to Kyocera Net Viewer.

The cloud now has a silver lining – KYOCERA Cloud Connect

Cloud computing and cloud storage are becoming mainstream in today’s business environment, as  customers want to store and access data from anywhere at any time.  Here we talk with Kyocera’s Product Marketing Manager, George Kharoufeh, about how the cloud works and Kyocera’s new application that has been developed to make access to your data straightforward, reliable and fast.

George can you tell us what is “The Cloud” and how does it work?

“The term cloud computing is used to describe any and all applications and services hosted and run on servers connected to the Internet – servers and applications that individuals do not have to maintain or support themselves. For example if you have an email account with a provider such as Gmail or Yahoo, your messages are stored “in the cloud” and can be accessed from any device at any time. What makes that so exciting is there is really no limit to amount of data businesses and individuals can now access and use. Long gone are the days of saving data to an external device and posting it; users can have it at their finger tips wherever they are in the world”

So how can Kyocera customers use the cloud with their Kyocera devices?

“KYOCERA Cloud Connect is the solution that bridges Kyocera’s products to the cloud service applications publicly available today. The application enables scanning and printing of files in Evernote, a cloud service provider, directly from most Kyocera multifunctional product control panels.”

Can you tell us more about Evernote?

“Evernote is among the world’s fastest growing cloud services with over 34 million users today. The application is a tool for users to “Remember Everything” including captured memos, photos and web articles. Evernote makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. It’s quick and effortless to set up an Evernote account and best of all, its free!”

What functions does KYOCERA Cloud Connect allow users to perform?

The KYOCERA Cloud Connect application allows a user to upload scanned files directly to Evernote from the touch screen control panel of a Kyocera multifunctional product (MFP), removing the need to send scanned files to or from a computer. And when a hardcopy of any document is needed users can retrieve and print files stored in Evernote directly from the Kyocera product in file formats including JPEG, PDF and TIFF”

That sounds great George; can you give us some examples of where KYOCERA Cloud Connect could be used?

“KYOCERA Cloud Connect keeps customers connected wherever they are. This means that you can scan to your account and take the data with you anywhere you go in the world and you can also print anywhere in the world on any Kyocera HyPAS enabled device.
The application allows for easy sharing of data across multiple site offices globally, for example a large legal document can be scanned into the Cloud via Cloud Connect in the Sydney office. It can then be accessed by offices in Kyoto, Los Angeles, London and Singapore – wherever a customer chooses to share the corporate access to their Cloud Connect account for use via a Kyocera HyPAS enabled device.”

KYOCERA Cloud Connect is available from Kyocera or their authorised dealer network.  For more information on Kyocera’s software solutions visit www.kyoceradocumentsolutions.com.au
