TSC Printronix Auto ID Announces a New Partnership with SOTI to Offer Remote Device Management Solutions to Customers


TSC Printronix Auto ID, comprised of two industry-leading barcode printer brands, has announced a new strategic partnership with SOTI, the world’s most trusted mobile and IoT management solutions provider. Together, the companies will offer a series of barcode printers that are compatible with SOTI’s newest IoT management solution, SOTI Connect. As part of the partnership, TSC Printronix Auto ID has become an authorized distributor to offer the solution through its distribution partners.

SOTI Connect is an IoT solution that manages and secures connected devices for complex IoT environments, which provides complete lifecycle management of all IoT devices within an organization, including printers. Its customizable architecture allows new devices to be quickly supported and managed, empowering organizations to accelerate the deployment of IoT initiatives.

TSC Printronix Auto ID is among the first thermal barcode printer manufacturers to partner with SOTI, to provide remote printer management for a suite of business-critical devices including desktop, industrial, and RFID barcode printers, plus their heavy-duty print engine series. TSC Printronix Auto ID mobile printers will also be added to the SOTI Connect compatible lineup later this year.

As an industry leader in thermal printing technology, TSC Printronix Auto ID is committed to bringing leading-edge technology and added value to their partners and customers. SOTI Connect enables TSC and Printronix Auto ID users to manage and maintain a fleet of barcode printers from a central dashboard and benefit from the reduced cost and complexity of managing a myriad of IoT devices.

“We are committed to providing our customers with high-performance printers, outstanding service and the tools they need to keep their business operating efficiently. Our partnership with SOTI is an opportunity to offer customers a technology that increases visibility and accessibility to multiple printers and devices at once,” said Sam Wang, President and CEO, TSC Printronix Auto ID. “SOTI Connect complements our growing line of innovative solutions designed to save time, reduce costs, and improve accuracy in fast-paced enterprise environments.”

“Since announcing our initial product integration, SOTI’s expanded partnership with TSC Printronix Auto ID continues to deliver innovation to our joint channel and customer community,” said Mustafa Ebadi, Chief Operating Officer, SOTI. “New features within SOTI Connect to enhance security include supporting secure sockets layer (SSL) and updating file and certificate downloads, which provides an industry-leading user experience for secure printer configuration and management. Our work with TSC Printronix Auto ID further complements

SOTI Connect’s management portfolio, enabling our business-critical deployments to respond faster, perform more efficiently and deliver quality service.”

A free 30-day trial is available to customers who would like to evaluate the solution before purchasing a full license. SOTI Connect is available for purchase through its established TSC Printronix Auto ID distribution channel partners.
