ECi FMAudit® Software Integrated with HP® Devices

ECi Software Solutions (www.ECiSolutions.com), a leader in industry-specific information technology solutions, today announced the integration of its premier managed print services solution, FMAudit® software, with HP® printing and imaging devices.
