Practical Example – Print Management

Manage printers and print jobs

Everyday printing problems

Problems with print servers, access to printers and print jobs are a constant issue. Reorganization, relocations, function changes and labor turnover ensure constant movement in printer assignments and authorizations. This is your daily challenge.  The migration of queues and print servers also involves a great deal of effort.

Transforming support and management

What if you could get rid of the daily annoying activities associated with printing? Printer setup and management of print permissions and default settings on printers are ideal for delegation to the service desk or the departments themselves. The same goes for managing print jobs. All this without the need for administrative rights to the print server or Active Directory. Of course, it would only be for printers, user accounts and groups that fall under the corresponding responsibility – always traceable and transparent.
