Print from Windows

The prac­tical case

Mana­ging and admi­nis­te­ring print envi­ron­ments is time-consuming and compli­cated. Print servers and drivers need to be confi­gured and provi­sioned correctly. Print queues have to be distri­buted to end users and services offered for these services. The tools provided by the opera­ting system are often insuf­fi­cient for this, diffi­cult to confi­gure and require a high level of specia­list know­ledge on the part of the administrators.

The chal­lenges are in the detail

The manual admi­nis­tra­tion of the Windows prin­ting envi­ron­ment is time-consuming and the neces­sary acti­vi­ties are often repeated. The neces­sary main­ten­ance of the infra­struc­ture is ther­e­fore often only carried out incom­ple­tely and on the side. However, errors in the confi­gu­ra­tion increase the number of misprints and the dissa­tis­fac­tion of the end users.

The neces­sary printer queues must be set up on the Windows print servers and assi­gned to the respec­tive prin­ters. Depen­ding on the respec­tive end devices, printer drivers must be installed and set for this purpose. These drivers require updates and must then be reinstalled on the print servers. Large envi­ron­ments in parti­cular can quickly become confu­sing due to the large number of printer queues and drivers.
As a result, the main­ten­ance of the infra­struc­ture is often not carried out consis­t­ently and consis­t­ently, which leads to increased search efforts, espe­ci­ally in the case of errors. To iden­tify errors, local log files must be examined and analysed.

Once the print queues are finally available on the print servers, they must also be made available to the end users. Although there are various ways to do this on the opera­ting system side, a high degree of auto­ma­tion requires exten­sive script programming and maintenance.

The advan­tages at a glance

  • Clear – intui­tive graphical user interface
  • Instal­la­tion in record time without chan­ging your environment
  • Easy manage­ment, moni­to­ring, confi­gu­ra­tion of all prin­ters and print queues on the network
  • Auto­ma­tion of manual efforts
  • Auto­matic printer mapping for end users
  • Effec­tive control: status of prin­ters and print jobs, confi­gu­ra­tion of print servers
  • Indi­vi­dual user manage­ment: assign­ment of indi­vi­dual and granular rights for the manage­ment of the print environment
  • Maximum secu­rity for confi­den­tial printing
  • Auto­mated backup and reco­very of your print infrastructure
  • Intel­li­gent, simple and intui­tive driver management
  • Mini­mised help­desk and admi­nis­tra­tion efforts through intel­li­gent diagno­stic functions

The solu­tion

Trans­form your exis­ting Windows envi­ron­ment into a fully-fledged output manage­ment system without chan­ging your exis­ting busi­ness processes.

Use Prin­Taurus for this: our scalable, plat­form- and manu­fac­turer-inde­pen­dent solu­tion that can be custo­mised to indi­vi­dual networks and needs on a case-by-case basis.

Simplify the crea­tion and manage­ment of printer queues and auto­mate the allo­ca­tion of printer queue assignments.

Operate your entire infra­struc­ture from one user inter­face. This means that even less expe­ri­enced end users can make changes easily and safely. A high-avai­la­bi­lity concept ensures that prin­ting can take place on print devices at any time.

Use auto­ma­tions to perform regular tasks such as driver distri­bu­tion and confi­gu­ra­tion. You can save and reuse driver settings and fully auto­mate the distri­bu­tion of drivers to diffe­rent print servers.
