UniPrint, the leader in printing virtualization, today announced that El Centro Regional Medical Center (ECRMC) has selected UniPrint Infinity as the printing solution for its entire virtual IT environment. UniPrint Infinity, the industry’s first printer-vendor independent managed print solution for any computing environment, provides a patented universal printer driver solution that enables El Centro to offer trouble free printing to all its end users.
ECRMC is an acute-care medical center in California, USA, serving the healthcare needs of the Imperial Valley area since 1956. The ECRMC IT network is comprised of desktops, thin clients, physical and virtual servers, laptops and some virtual desktops running on VMware. With hundreds of mixed computing devices on one network connecting from dispersed locations, each with their own printers of various makes and models, printer management was complex and challenging. UniPrint was able to provide ECRMC a universal printing solution that allowed it to better serve every possible user device and printer combination across the network and integrate seamlessly with its existing IT structure and VMware virtual servers and desktops. The entire implementation process was completed in two weeks.
With one universal printer driver, UniPrint Infinity allowed ECRMC to simplify its printer installation and management process. ECRMC no longer had to install a manufacturer printer driver for every printer that the Center supported through a virtual environment. Physicians and clinical staff on remote virtual desktops or other user devices now work with a single UniPrint printer, making it simple for them to print to any printer. Additionally, ECRMC has seen a dramatic drop in help desk calls since the installation of UniPrint Infinity.
Henry Felix, Technical Services Manager, ECRMC, commented, “When looking for a printing solution, we evaluated various software from the industry. UniPrint was the clear answer, solving our problem faster than its competitors. If we didn’t deploy UniPrint, the alternative would have been to support all printers, and therefore print drivers, inside of the virtual sessions, which would have increased costs and IT complications while decreasing performance. But with UniPrint, we have no such problems. Now, we have one universal printer driver to manage, and that’s thanks to UniPrint.”
Arron Fu, VP of Software Development at UniPrint, said, “ECRMC needed a solution to solve its problem of multiple printer drivers, and the solution had to be user-friendly and immediately effective. Given that 95% of ECRMC’s total printing output stems from printed lab results, the solution needed to be secure as well. With UniPrint Infinity, ECRMC can now print securely while also minimizing IT costs and help desk calls.”
