Empowering dealers to unlock new revenue streams with RED

We were excited to officially launch RED to nearly 1,000 attendees at the Sharp National Dealer Meeting, which took place at The Wynn in Las Vegas, April 18 to 21.

Available exclusively through the channel, RED provides print management and monitoring in a single platform. Our brand-new cloud-native solution offers control panel applications, print monitoring capabilities; can be delivered as a white-label service option; and is built on a per-device licensing model with no user limitations.

With RED, we are empowering channel partners to drive revenue and profit as they help customers leverage all of the benefits of migrating print to the cloud. We have built on the rich feature-set of our core serverless print management solution and added advanced printer monitoring (SNMP) capabilities and alerts for printer status, device health, paper levels, volumes, toner levels, and more. The new RED channel- exclusive product line also features a Sharp-native OSA embedded app that simplifies roll-
out and enhances the end-user experience with features such as card authentication and pull-printing. RED provides access to fast and reliable printing from any device or location, streamlines print management from end-to-end, reduces resellers’ cost to serve, and secures new recurring revenue streams.

Product highlights include:

One platform two solutions. RED supports print management and print monitoring in a single tool.


With our white-label service option, partners can package a complete managed print solution that keeps their brand front and center.

Incremental and recurring revenue.

Per-device pricing secures recurring revenue streams for new hardware sales, plus, there’s an additional revenue opportunity when adding customers’ legacy print devices to the platform.

Easy adoption cycle and migration path.

Our unique universal driver simplifies roll-out
and maintenance, while the Device Radar tool turbo-charges the printing device onboarding process by using mDNS and SNMP protocols to search for and identify all network- connected printers. Device Radar also leverages artificial intelligence to set individual devices’ best-known configuration and enable advanced finishing features such as staple, fold, etc., where available.

Multi-vendor fleet support.

The universal print driver includes advanced finishing options for over 5,000 printer makes and models – making it ideal for customers operating a multi-vendor fleet.

Security is built-in.

Local network printing ensures print jobs never leave the customer’s network, while Edge Print keeps remote print jobs secure.

Specialist printer support. RED also supports receipt (POS) and label printers.

Real-time print analytics.

Enable IT leads to understand how print resources are being used organization-wide.
