Digi­tal Prin­ter Roll-out

Prin­ter moder­ni­sa­ti­on with AKI in a few minutes

Prac­ti­cal case

The moder­ni­sa­ti­on of the prin­ter land­s­cape is immi­nent. A lar­ge num­ber of end devices will soon be exch­an­ged for new prin­ters. Some prin­ters will be repla­ced by the newer model, others will be com­ple­te­ly repla­ced by other manu­fac­tu­rers. In some units prin­ters have to be con­so­li­da­ted in others more depart­ment­al prin­ters will be added.

The respon­si­ble IT depart­ment must pro­vi­de the necessa­ry time, per­son­nel and tech­ni­cal resour­ces in good time. It must also ensu­re that time-cri­ti­cal pro­ces­ses are not inter­rup­ted during the repla­ce­ment of the prin­ters and that users are not dis­tur­bed in their workflow.

At the hel­pdesk, the tele­pho­nes are alrea­dy run­ning hot.

Chal­len­ges in detail

The instal­la­ti­on and repla­ce­ment of the end devices is usual­ly done quickly.
Howe­ver, the dif­fi­cul­ties lie in the down­stream adap­t­ati­on of the infrastructure.

The pre­vious con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on of the prin­ters must be repro­du­ced on the sys­tems 1:1 if pos­si­ble. Prin­ter dri­vers and access per­mis­si­ons must be updated, and assign­ments of prin­ter queu­es to SAP® out­put devices must be che­cked. Obso­le­te prin­ters and dri­vers must be iden­ti­fied and remo­ved. The addi­tio­nal new prin­ters must be set up for the first time and initi­al­ly con­fi­gu­red for use. You must ensu­re that the names of the prin­ter queu­es are con­sis­tent and uni­que without duplication.

The prin­ter roll-out can thus beco­me a time-con­suming pro­cess becau­se the majo­ri­ty of the acti­vi­ties are per­for­med manu­al­ly. In addi­ti­on, resour­ces from dif­fe­rent IT are­as are tied up becau­se the know-how and admi­nis­tra­ti­on rights for Win­dows or SAP® sys­tems are held by dif­fe­rent people.


AKI’s experts will accom­pa­ny you throughout the ent­i­re plan­ning and imple­men­ta­ti­on phase.

Thanks to our many years of expe­ri­ence in print manage­ment, we are fami­li­ar with the pro­blems and sources of error invol­ved in moder­ni­sing the prin­ter land­s­cape. With our spe­cial­ly deve­lo­ped admi­nis­tra­ti­on tools, we take over the ent­i­re con­fi­gu­ra­ti­on adjus­t­ments for the prin­ters and print ser­vers during roll-out.

You save time and resour­ces that you can invest in stra­te­gi­cal­ly important other projects.
