JDS inks deal in Jordan

Amman reseller deploys advanced HP printing solution.

Jordan Data Systems - one of HP's main partners in Amman - has deployed a range of the vendor's printing products at Cairo Amman Bank (CAB).

CAB claims that the printing solutions, along with HP's latest management tools, have helped reduce its total cost of ownership by between 10% and 30%.

The first phase of the solution delivered by JDS - which is part of 75-strong Jordanian IT group MDS - comprised more than 75 HP LaserJet MFP devices and five printers. The contract also included the provision of HP WebJet Admin and FollowMe software.

HP's web-based print management WebJet Admin software controls the bank's printing set-up and aids supplies management through remote configuration monitoring. The FollowMe solution, meanwhile, offers network-wide security of equipment functions and centralised services accounting.

Omar Yacoub, head of IT at CAB, claims the deployment of HP printing solutions have made numerous banking procedures faster. Loan applications, which previously required an unsecured fax procedure or slow site-to-site document transportation are now simply scanned and securely transmitted to the required office.

"We are seeing significant increases in security, management control and productivity," he said. Amr Hassan, general manager imaging and printing group at HP Middle East, commented: "HP's core strategy revolves around providing businesses with the best in class solutions, latest technological innovations and management tools to improve security and cut down costs with equipment that's easier to manage."

With 49 branches and offices throughout Jordan, CAB is the largest retail bank in the Kingdom and its entire printer fleet is connected to one single network.
