Finally, SMBs Can Eliminate Print Servers Too

Posted by Devin Anderson on January 17th, 2017

When we launched our Printer Installer product more than three years ago, we had what turned out to be a revolutionary idea – that in order to minimize the print-related issues IT staff faced every day, enterprises would need to eliminate their print servers. We built an enterprise print management solution that did just that, and since then we’ve helped thousands of enterprises eliminate their print servers, reduce the complexity of print management and significantly cut their printing costs.

But over the years, one thing became abundantly clear. Larger enterprises aren’t the only ones who have to deal with the pains of business printing. Small and medium businesses – though they may not have the same number of printers, locations or servers to manage – still have incredibly complex print environments that require constant firefighting, which they don’t have time for.

SMB IT pros, just like their large enterprise counterparts, receive far too many print-related help desk calls, and they need a self-service printer installation tool that simplifies their users’ experiences, while still giving them full control. They need simple solutions to deploy printer drivers and manage printers. And as their companies grow, they find themselves in need of full-featured, enterprise-grade print management solutions. But these solutions are typically too complex, time consuming, and expensive for SMBs.

We didn’t think that was right.

So today we’ve introduced PrinterCloud, a Cloud-based print management solution purpose-built for SMBs who need quick, powerful control of their print environment without additional infrastructure. 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.
