SmartSolutions Software Development Kit now available.


Lexmark, the popular printer makers, has started an initiative inviting third party developers to create and build apps for their all-in-one printers. At the Adobe MAX conference, Lexmark announced that the SmartSolution Software Development Kit is now available for developers to create printer-based applications for small and medium businesses and to publish them on Lexmark’s SmartSolutions Center. The Center will enable users to download the apps to their Lexmark AIOs.

“Last year, Lexmark introduced three AIOs that let small business customers take their devices way beyond printing by enabling them to download and customize cloud-based and other applications, which we call SmartSolutions, that save them time and money,” said Mr. Mohammed Addarrat, General Manager Lexmark International Middle East. “By opening our SDK to developers, Lexmark can build and provide a more dynamic and robust library of SmartSolutions to enable customers to better manage the constant flow and mix of hardcopy and digital content that co-exists in today’s modern office.”

Developers can register at Lexmark’s Solutions Development page.

Lexmark also announced Google Analytics app for printers “which analyzes and reports web traffic from the AIO” printers. Other app include one touch scan to email solution, eco-copy, Google Calendar, Stamps.com, Twitter, Evernote, Triplt, Scan to Box.net and Facebook.
