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 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.
