MyQ has integrated a popular payment provider to make another step towards the ever-growing base of customers who have a credit system in place to account for users' printing, scanning and copying activities.
TouchNet uPay is widely used across the U.S., as well as the Middle Eastern and African regions, and customers who are looking to benefit are mainly high schools, colleges, universities, and public libraries.
The integration is a virtue of the last update of MyQ Master Server to verson 8.1, released on 3 April 2020. Previous versions already managed user credit centrally, which meant users didn’t need to top up separate balance accounts at each campus or library branch. However, not all payment methods were supported by the MyQ Master Server. The new update has fixed this discrepancy and all payment gates, including TouchNet uPay, now enable customers to directly recharge their credit using their payment card or digital wallet.
Recent updates of MyQ software have also introduced a significant change in its core architecture. It has moved to job-based accounting and established support for multi-level projects. This means system admins can now set up tree structures of their company's projects up to 5 levels deep, and users can then assign any job they are authenticating to the right project. In turn, print servers can provide clearer and more thorough reports – by project, by department, by user, or by device – detailing how resources are being used and how printing policies might be re-thought to optimize an organization's costs.

Printer usage monitoring is a staple in IT departments of all bigger companies. The print management software an organization uses should make generating accurate print reports as easy as possible.
As announced earlier this month, MyQ X is the new environment of MyQ’s products, licensing and pricing. However, it also brings several essential improvements that will place control over MyQ solution into the hands of its partners and customers.
On 7 July 2020, we launched MyQ X, the next generation of MyQ. However, the first elements of this re-vamped environment date back to the beginning of this year, when we released MyQ 8.0 with new core architecture, new user session and the editions Smart, Enterprise and Ultimate.
