The Printing App Center is a website for users of the Smart UX Center, an Android-based open ecosystem that enhances the ordinary printer with familiar smartphone or tablet functionality. The Printing App Center allows users to download printing applications and widgets, allowing for print device customization.
“Our main objective with this new version of the Printing App Center is to support the app business of dealers as well as to improve communication,” said Matt Smith, Vice President of Samsung Electronics America Printing Division. “We have aimed to make it easier for Samsung dealers, in-house developers, third-party app developers and customers to reach out to one another.”
Key features of the Printing App Center 2.0 include:
- My Catalog: an easy-to-use feature that allows dealers to build curated lists of recommended Smart UX apps and widgets into a catalog tailored to the needs of their business clients.
- Smart Cafe: a communication platform that allows Samsung dealers, app developers and end-users to get in touch with one another. The platform allows dealers and customers to send direct inquiries to app developers and receive prompt troubleshooting solutions. It also provides the latest Smart UX app news and updates from Samsung.
- Interactive Verification & Validation (V&V): a page that allows app developers to check the status of their apps during the V&V testing process. Information is offered in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner, and lets developers monitor the usage status of registered apps.
Additional features, such as search filters, have also been added to help enhance the user experience and improve usability of the site.
“Printing App Center 2.0 is going to give users, developers and channel partners more opportunities to create great apps and improve the printing experience,” said Smith. “The update will make it easier for the Smart UX Center to meet customer needs and improve productivity for the smart workplace.”
