PrinterLogic Eliminates Print Servers for Businesses of All Sizes

Introduces Release Printing Module to Add Pull Printing/Secure Printing to its Single Integrated Printer Management Platform

St. George, UTAH—November 18, 2014—PrinterLogic, the leading Enterprise Printer Management solution, today announced the availability of the latest version of its web-based PrinterLogic Printer Management platform, which enables businesses of all sizes to eliminate print servers. Regardless of how many offices or employees an organization might have, IT staff are now able to centrally manage all printers while eliminating print servers altogether, potentially saving millions per year in print-related costs and offering immediate ROI.

PrinterLogic’s single integrated platform replaces all the functionality that print servers used to provide. It also adds many new features that enable enterprise IT staff to simplify printer management and provisioning, reduce costs, and empower users to install printers themselves, without calling the help desk.

“The simple fact is that the cost, effort, and complexity of traditional print servers are no longer necessary,” said Ryan Wedig, President and COO of PrinterLogic. “Most organizations don’t even realize that eliminating print servers is an option. We alleviate printer deployment and maintenance issues in any environment, and in organizations that choose to use PrinterLogic to eliminate their print servers, the ROI can take place in a matter of weeks.”

In today’s release, PrinterLogic is also introducing its new Release Printing™ Module, which enables an organization to take advantage of Pull/Follow Printing and Secure Printing on any printer—without being locked into one printer vendor.

Each year, hundreds of millions of documents are printed and left unclaimed on printers, creating huge waste and expense. And when these unclaimed documents contain sensitive or confidential information, this also creates a huge security risk. PrinterLogic’s new Release Printing Module secures the print environment by enabling users to send print jobs without releasing them until they are physically at the printer to receive the documents.

The available print job release mechanisms include:

Browser-Based Release:
  • Any device with a browser—including PC, Mac, Chromebook, and any mobile device—can access PrinterLogic’s web-based app and release print jobs securely.
Badge/Card Reader Release:
  • A badge reader is placed at the printer or is native to the printing device. The badge reader integrates with the existing badge system to release the print jobs to the printer associated with the badge.
Printer Console Release:
  • The PrinterLogic app can be installed directly on a printer, enabling users to log in and release their print jobs directly from the LCD of the device. This method does not require any additional hardware for supported devices.

As a result, PrinterLogic’s new Release Printing Module enables both Pull Printing and Secure Printing capabilities for organizations looking to secure their print environment by eliminating the risk of sensitive or confidential documents being printed and left unclaimed for someone else to discover.

Pull Printing
Pull Printing (also known as Follow Printing) enables users to create print jobs via a universal print driver, giving them the ability to release the print job at any printer of their discretion. Pull Printing works in all of the following environments: PC/Mac, Mobile and Chromebook.

Secure Printing
Secure Printing allows users to create a print job via a specific printer driver to a single printer, while enabling the user to release the job at the designated printer when they are physically there to receive the print job. By using the printer’s actual driver, all original printer functionality is maintained. Secure Printing is currently available in PC/Mac environments.

“Previously, most organizations believed they needed to use a print server in order to roll out Release Printing functionality—where users print, but don't release the document until they are at the physical printer to claim it,” said Ryan Wedig, President and COO of PrinterLogic. “With today’s announcement, organizations can now enable Pull Printing and Secure Printing via PrinterLogic—with or without print servers.”
