essensys customers can now manage their coworking spaces and printing from a single interface.
(London, May 7, 2019) ezeep Inc., provider of ezeep – the leading printing solution for coworking spaces and universities, and essensys – provider of mission-critical software for tech-driven flexible workspaces, are launching a cooperative partnership. As a result of their collaboration, ezeep has been fully integrated into Operate, the comprehensive workspace management platform by essensys. This means that essensys Operate customers can now fully manage their printing environment easily from within the essensys platform. After a one-time quick setup, user management and billing are fully automated.
Print management in coworking spaces is no trivial matter. While there are usually just a small number of printers, there are a large number of users with highly-diverse printing requirements. The correct mapping of printers and print invoicing is a considerable burden for workspace operators. With the integration of ezeep into essensys Operate, coworking spaces can now significantly simplify their printing processes.

When Operate customers install ezeep, they simply enter their printers and define rules once. Then, both printer allocation, as well as the transfer of accounting data to the Operate accounting system, take place in real-time, meaning users will automatically be invoiced even if they go over their printing limit. Operators have the ability to assign a threshold of free prints per account. If a user prints over this allowance, Operate software will ensure these additional prints are seamlessly entered into charge sheets to be invoiced to the end user.
“In the past, coworking space operators often didn’t invoice printouts because the expense of invoicing was too great,” says Christoph Hammer, CEO at ezeep Inc. “This integration means that both the provision of print services and invoicing are now fully automated and all available within Operate, the enterprise-grade workspace management platform by essensys. Specialist IT know-how isn’t even required.”
“Our technology powers the world’s largest community of tech-driven flexible workspaces,” says James Shannon, Chief Product Officer at essensys. “These customers now have the option of offering their members a compelling printing solution that facilitates integrated billing across multiple locations all within the same account. We’re pleased to bring this sought-after operational functionality to the coworking market. It will save coworking operators time and frustration in printing services while offering a better member experience across the board.”
