ThinPrint, manufacturer of the leading print
management software, today released ThinPrint Management Services, a powerful
and nimble tool to quickly and easily set up and manage large Windows print
environments. The Windows PowerShell-based ThinPrint Management Services
automatically integrates thousands of printers and drivers, including
generating all settings, enabling the setup and migration of print servers and
ensuring that print servers and workstations are kept up-to-date.
The larger the print environment, the greater the challenge it
poses for IT departments. Within these environments, dozens, and even
thousands, of printers must be painstakingly created manually, while print
servers are continuously being kept up to date. The PowerShell-based ThinPrint
Management Services accomplish this time-consuming procedure, including the
entire setup and management, in a fully automatic and script-controlled manner.
With ThinPrint Management Services, even companies and service
providers that don't know the print infrastructure of their branch offices or
customers can automatically build a high-performance print environment.
ThinPrint Management Services are suitable for any Windows-based print
environment - with or without print servers. Thousands of printers and drivers,
including all settings, are created within just a few minutes. The automated
processes not only result in significant time savings, but also circumvent manual
entry errors and the resulting problems when printing.
As many scripts as are necessary can be run simultaneously on
different servers. This saves time and leads to unprecedented speeds when
setting up or migrating print servers and creating printers. In addition,
several administrators can work simultaneously on various tasks and therefore
optimize their work processes.
"Whether for server migration, disaster recovery or when updating
and changing settings, the script-based ThinPrint Management Services cover all
previously time-consuming tasks," said Thorsten Hesse, CPO at ThinPrint.
"Administrators no longer need to know which printers are in their branch
offices. This is a great message for our numerous service provider customers,
but also for many other IT departments, where a clear picture of the print
infrastructure in use is not always available."
ThinPrint Engine Premium customers can take advantage of ThinPrint Management
Services at no additional cost.
Windows PowerShell has established itself as the standard among IT
professionals and ThinPrint Management Services has been developed to fit
perfectly into this framework. For administrators who are still not fully
familiar with PowerShell, ThinPrint offers an online help tool that includes many important
PowerShell commands: These sample scripts can be simply copied and pasted by
administrators in order to be used.
