1 KX Driver and Utilities Reference Guide December 2002 Overview The world of office products has become increasingly more complex. The days of just selling “speeds and feeds” has given way to system and solution selling. In order to be competitive in today’s market, you must be able to prove that your product can do more than just what the specs say. The Drivers and Utilities that come with your product help answer the needs of your customers, and keep you competitive. In this Guide, we will review the software Driver & Utility offerings from Kyocera Mita, find out what each software package has to offer, as well as who it is important to, and why. For more in-depth knowledge, you should attend our Total Document Solutions Workshop. Q: What is a Driver? A: A Driver is a program that interacts with a particular device or special (frequently optional) software. The Driver contains the knowledge of the device or software that programs use in order to output to a printing device. Q: What are Utilities? A: A Utility is a small program that provides additional capabilities provided by the Operating System. A Utility can also be an application that is very specialized and relatively limited in capability but enables a user to perform a function that is outside the specifications of the printing device. Q: Why are these things important to MIS/IT? A: MIS/IT’s main concern is with the day-to-day operation of their equipment. Operational cost & product features are not as important as maintenance and stability of their networking environment. MIS/IT uses Drivers & Utilities to keep their networks running, and are constantly looking for a better way of doing business Q: Why do you need to know this? A: When speaking to MIS/IT, the Driver & Utilities should be your main focus. By knowing the Drivers & Utilities, you can speak intelligently to MIS/IT gain the confidence in your ability to keep their network operating smoothly and win support for your products.
