UBSNA Rolls Out New FMAudit Diagnostic Software

UBSNA.Logo

UBSNA is excited to announce the rollout of a new diagnostic software that will allow us to better manage our clients’ multi-function machines (MFPs) including printers, copiers, and scanners. The new software, called FMAudit, will be installed across all of our clients’ current and future machines over the coming weeks and will serve as an upgrade to UBSNA’s current Remote Diagnostic Service (RDS).

The new FMAudit program will allow UBSNA to remotely gather valuable information on machine attributes such as model, serial number, error codes, consumable coverage, and resource levels. All of this information will serve to help UBSNA remotely diagnose machine issues as well as deliver just-in-time supplies such as toners and ink. Additionally, FMAudit’s meter reading collection application will automate meter reading and reduce unnecessary manual intervention.

The FMAudit rollout is a great example of UBSNA’s ongoing commitment to providing leading technology that offers superior service to our clients and allows them focus on the things that matter most to their business.

May is ALS Awareness Month – Here’s How to Get Involved.

Many of us remember the ALS “Ice Bucket Challenge” that swept the world two years ago. The movement made great strides in promoting awareness of this debilitating disease, but there is still a lot that we can do to help build awareness and fundraise for the cause.

May is officially ALS Awareness Month, and we here at UBSNA thought we’d take this opportunity to share and promote a few different ways you can get involved.

Learn About ALS and Research Efforts

Building awareness and understanding of ALS is one of the first steps to building more fundraising for studies and research towards a cure. Visit The ALS Association’s website at ALSA.ORG to learn more.

Lend Your Voice

Become an advocate for this cause during May and throughout the rest of the year by spreading the word and building awareness. The ALS Association has designated the hashtag #ALSAware to help get the word out and build awareness across social platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Participate

There are so many great events and fundraisers that go on throughout the year that all strive to help build awareness and donations to support research into this devastating disease. Visit www.WalktoDefeatALS.org to find and join a walk or other event in your local neighborhood.

Universal Business Solutions (UBSNA) Joins PACE Charity in Commemorating the One Year Anniversary of the Group’s Trip to Provide Aid to Syrian Refugees.

“Never does a man stand so tall, as when he stoops to help a child.” This age-old adage is one which UBSNA CEO, Abe Thomas takes seriously. Last year, Abe Thomas and UBSNA pledged $5,000 in matching funds to PACE Charity, a non-profit organization that was planning a trip to provide aid and humanitarian relief to Syrian refugees taking shelter at the Al-Azraq Village in Jordan. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of that trip.

Through the tireless efforts of the wonderful people at PACE Charity, and the seed donation provided by Abe Thomas and UBSNA, the trip was a fantastic success. PACE was able to provide 200 food parcels, 25 water tanks, a make-shift school tent for 50 students, and dozens of volunteer hours to Syrian refugees in Jordan. The staff at UBSNA also donated all of the supplies and items for goody bags that were distributed to the children at the school’s grand opening.

Check out PACE’s video of the make-shift school tent they constructed below:
