Workers expect to print whenever they want to. They don’t think about which print server or network they are connected to. They don’t think about which print drivers they have downloaded. They certainly don’t think to check whether a printer is online and ready to print. They just want to hit ‘print’ and be done.
For organizations, print solutions aren’t just about document output, but also but enhancing security and productivity, and reducing costs. Implementing the right cost control measures requires clear visibility into print usage and behavior. Printing is essential, but not all decisions to print are made responsibly. Armed with the right information, print policy decisions can be made that reduce volumes and costs, supporting the bottom line and environmental initiatives while not impacting user productivity and satisfaction.
By applying access controls around printing, critical information is protected throughout its chain of custody, while ensuring that workers can securely print anytime/anywhere, and to any device. Secure printing will prevent data loss, account for every page and ensure that workers have access only to the information and systems they need, which may help your organization adhere to compliance regulations.
Meeting worker expectations while reducing strain on IT staff and budgets is what print management does, and does well. These solutions provide access to printing whenever and wherever workers need it, while maintaining control over costs and security with features that prevent unauthorized or uncontrolled printing that exposes sensitive data to the wrong individuals. Further, with safeguards in place that prevent documents from being printed if the user doesn’t present him/herself at the printer, organizations reduce physical and monetary waste. For IT professionals, print management solutions minimize network print infrastructure costs by providing better control over print servers, print drivers and the complexities of supporting mixed print fleets.
