Y Soft, a leading enterprise office solutions provider, today announced that Sports Lisboa e Benfica, a professional Portuguese soccer team, deployed YSoft SafeQ throughout its organization. YSoft SafeQ was implemented to solve their three main challenges: managing and understanding the company’s use and costs associated with print services; reducing those costs; and, increasing document security.

Sport Lisboa e Benfica Futebol SAD manages the famous professional soccer team, Sport Lisboa e Benfica, as well as other sports teams. Through subsidiaries and other affiliates, it also builds and manages stadiums, operates an investment fund, and runs an insurance brokerage.

The company’s IT department found that managing the costs of their multifunctional printers (MFPs) and other networked printers had spiraled out of control. Further, sensitive documents were left in the printer area along with other stacks of messy, uncollected print jobs.

The results were dramatic. Sport Lisboa e Benfica said, “This change completely fulfilled our needs – the number of printed pages has decreased and the total cost of printing has been greatly reduced. We don’t see any uncollected print jobs at the printers, so we know our sensitive information is safe.

YSoft SafeQ is an enterprise print management solution. It is able to help companies reduce print costs by giving IT administrators a centralized view of their print fleet, reports that indicate who is printing, copying and scanning and which documents are involved. With this insight, IT administrators use YSoft SafeQ to create print rules that are automatically enforced to save paper, toner and ink. For example, rules-based printing can force double-sided printing, color to black and white or sending the job to a more cost efficient printer—even limiting who is allowed to make high quality, expensive color prints.

Further, because YSoft SafeQ authenticates the user before a print job is printed, sensitive material is printed only when the person is at the printer to pick it up. IDC, in their recent IDC FutureScape webcast on Worldwide Image, Printing and Document Solutions 2016 Predictions, pointed out that securing the print environment is often an overlooked element of a comprehensive IT security strategy; and, an unsecured print environment often translates into an unsecure IT environment.

"Companies like Lisboa e Benfica are printing millions of copies per year and need to find ways to reduce their costs,” said Václav Muchna, Y Soft CEO and co-founder. “YSoft SafeQ has been known to reduce printing costs of 30 - 50% based on a company's print governance rules. We are delighted that Lisboa e Benefica will be able to reap similar benefits.”

The full case study on Sport Lisboa e Benfica’s use of YSoft SafeQ also includes details on the specific modules used in the solution, how YSoft SafeQ frees IT administrator’s time to work on other crucial projects and information about the company’s overall print environment. Additional case studies are also available.
