Print Management Software – the best review

For our evaluation of print management software, we have approached our study from the three core criteria which define the scope of these solutions:
1) device management,
2) cost management,
3) output management.

Device Management

At its heart, print management software exists to deliver device management, which is to say that it enables network administrators to monitor and manage printers and multifunctional printers (MFPs) remotely from a desktop.

The best of breed print management software solutions enhance productivity by ensuring print device uptime, automating supplies management, and offering the centralisation of printer settings, and the automation of software updates.

Critically, print management software also delivers user-friendly connectivity. As a whole, these core objectives free-up an organisation’s IT resources and, so, reduces the cost of print to the organisation.

Cost Management

Cost management and cost reduction are essential features to print management software solutions, and these are very often the initial reasons for implementation. All good print management solutions track print output devices as well as the user activity of every device.

While simultaneously helping you to manage print costs, there’s always a strong element of device security to limit who can print to which device, whether dedicated printers on the desktop, or centralised office multifunctional printers.

Output Management

In terms of output management solutions, the best solutions include cloud-based technologies which facilitate remote connection to printers, and which even ensure accurate colour consistency across printer fleets.

However, there are a handful of specialist print management software applications which add so much of value to the security equation, they must be considered regardless of which core software suite is selected.

For organisations seeking to eliminate print servers, then PrinterLogic is always a contender, as is Kofax Output Manager. Expect PaperCut to challenge in this environment in 2021.

For global support, or where the most stringent security requirements are factors, then your shortlist might lead with Xerox Workplace Solutions, Kofax Equitrac.
