InfoPrint Manager

Overview

Simplify. Manage. Control.

InfoPrint Manager makes your output management smarter and easier. Manage multiple jobs from a single printer or fleet of print devices, even in remote locations. Produce mission-critical communications with confidence and meet Service Level Agreements (SLAs) without compromise. Automate job flows, free up IT resources and reduce costs — all from one central point of control.

 

Keep your organization effective, productive and moving forward

Whether your print operations are spread across your company or handled by a single server, managing thousands of jobs and devices is a big challenge. With InfoPrint Manager, you can easily control it all:

  • Monitor and manage print jobs from a web- or Java-based GUI.
  • Use the printer devices of all major print vendors, with support for Linux®, AIX®, Windows® or Mac® operating systems.
  • Transform datastreams in real time and increase your file input/output options.
  • Improve device use by automating job flows and tapping into load-balancing and job-scheduling capabilities.

 

Deliver information to the right recipient at the right time, in the right format

While Enterprise ECM and ERP applications solve specific line-of-business issues, it takes InfoPrint Manager's flexibility and control to make a measurable impact on your overall output. With a central point of control for all output functions, it's easier than ever to manage multi vendor devices, speed up response times, and track every job across the enterprise.

 

Keep sensitive information protected

InfoPrint Manager helps to prevent highly-sensitive print jobs from getting in the wrong hands. After a simple authentication, users can retrieve print output anywhere onsite or at a remote location. Enforce security with optional features like:

  • Pull Print Technology allows users to authenticate themselves when they submit a job, and re-authenticate themselves when they arrive at a printer to pick up the job.
  • Follow Me Technology allows users to submit a job without targeting a specific printer and then locate the job at a later time by authenticating themselves on any supported printer in another building, state or country.

 

Maximize SAP by integrating with InfoPrint Manager

Many of today's enterprise companies rely on SAP® software to help visualize, access and manage operations — from HR and finance to accounting, distribution and more. A seamless integration with InfoPrint Manager (via a simple BC-XOM) interface makes it easy to manage and report on the vast print output you generate on a day-to-day basis.

  • Simplify SAP enterprise print environments.
  • Improve SAP asset use and IT staff efficiency.
  • Decrease the cost of SAP printing and increase reliability.
  • Eliminate business slowdowns with reprint capability and legacy job manipulation.

 

Keep your lines of business up and running

InfoPrint Manager readily supports output from SAP®, Oracle, JD Edwards and other similar programs. In fact, InfoPrint Manager is the first certified SAP® output management solution (OMS) and first to be certified for OMS callback support — meaning that InfoPrint Manager can update SAP with print job statuses.
