Destroying The Need For Print Servers In SME’s

Over many years of dealing with larger and smaller enterprises and their print issues, one thing has become very obvious to us. Bigger businesses aren’t the only ones who have to deal with the pains of business printing, especially where print servers are concerned. While smaller businesses may not have the same number of printers or servers to manage in multiple locations, the pains that plague bigger businesses are still present. The complexity of their print environments even on a small scale produce a number of the same problems, but the main solutions for them are only accessible to bigger businesses. Here’s where we look into destroying the need for print servers in SME’s.

Well that just doesn’t seem right. So we went in search of a solution that could cater to smaller businesses as well – one that was purpose built for SME’s who needed quick, powerful control of their print environment, without all of the added infrastructure. And it didn’t take us long to find one. Our partner PrinterLogic brought out a solution called PrinterCloud. In their words;

PrinterCloud brings the power of enterprise-grade print management – including printer driver deployment, centrally managed direct IP printing, print job auditing and reporting, and self-service printer installation – to SMBs, without the complexity and hassle.
