ThinPrint Names Software-Defined Printing as Key Capability of a Successful Software-Defined Enterprise

ThinPrint, the leading provider of print management software and services for businesses, today announces its line of leading printing technologies as the key element for businesses to tap into the full potential of today's increasingly software-defined enterprise by making printing more flexible, dynamic and easily adaptable for any printing scenario.

The expectations for the software-defined enterprise are those of enhanced security, simplicity and flexibility to enable the highest possible productivity. Printing, however, has not kept pace. The software-defined enterprise consists of a mix of stationary, virtual, mobile and cloud environments. This makes printing complex, disruptive to the network, time-consuming and difficult to manage.

The challenges of software-defined printing are extensive. Each printing environment requires different drivers. Additionally, there is a lack of compatibility amongst different printers, devices, operating systems and apps. Assigning printers to users is also chaotic. Knowing which printers to assign which employee is afeat in itself, let alone assuring these configurations transfer amongst the myriad of desktops, devices and printers used by mobile and remote workers.This makes printing unreliable and unsecure. Print jobs arrive at the wrongprinters, get lost in the system, print inaccurately or are delayed due to a lack of bandwidth. ThinPrint's technologies overcome all of these barriers.

With just one print driver interface, ThinPrint consolidates all print management to one centralized print server for any mobile, virtual and cloud environment. This makes designing the print environment as simple, secure and efficient as possible. Admins can dynamically map and set permissions for each user to each printer from a single interface. The ThinPrint line also guarantees seamless compatibility between the widest possible array of printers, devices operating systems and apps in addition to virtual platforms and VDIs, giving workers the flexibility to use the tools to best fit their needs. The ThinPrint line also provides advanced adaptive compression, decreasing bandwidth use up to 98 percent. As a result, print jobs are always delivered to the right printer, at the best quality, at the right time with a fraction of the work. Admin hours spent on printing issues are decreased up to 60 percent, and help desk calls are reduced by 80 percent.

"Without optimizing printing, enterprises are not truly benefitting from the software-defined enterprise," said Henning Volkmer, president and CEO of ThinPrint Americas Business. "Printing should not be an afterthought, it is and will continue to be a vital part of businesses' day-to-day functions, even as the enterprises become more defined by software. We are dedicated in assuring that our products enable the best-possible printing experience and capabilities for both admins and end users alike."
