Printix to support Microsoft Universal Print

Printix enhances Microsoft Universal Print for modern workplace printing

Cloud print management firm Printix announced its support for Universal Print, a Microsoft 365 cloud print solution that organizations can use to manage their print infrastructure.

The modern workplace printing company Printix announces today the upcoming support for Universal Print, developed by Microsoft.

Microsoft Universal Print and the Printix solution

Released for public preview last week, Microsoft announced Universal Print, a cloud print solution that organizations can use to manage their print infrastructure. It provisions an option for a 100% Microsoft approach to removing print servers and being part of the Microsoft bundles for education and enterprise, it’s simple to access and implement.

Organizations that wish to utilize Universal Print within their environment can benefit from the comprehensive cloud print management solution built into Printix, with support for all current printers and multifunction devices along with additional modern printing capabilities. The Printix solution enhances Microsoft Universal Print delivering print management, secure print and mobile print and works with Windows, Mac and Chrome OS as well as Android and iOS/iPadOS.

Integration is key

In successfully partnering as a co-sell ready Microsoft ISV for several years now, Printix continues to support Microsoft and its channel partners with tightly integrated solutions. Complementing Universal Print is the latest in a long line of Microsoft integrations including Azure AD to manage user access and enable Single Sign-On, Microsoft Endpoint Manager to automatically deploy Printix Client, Power BI to create reports and provide valuable insight into print usage and support for Windows Virtual Desktop.

Until there are UP-enabled devices on the market, and to work with non-UP devices in the field, Microsoft has the UP Connector hosted on a VM in the cloud or on a local Windows machine. As an advanced option, Printix provides customers with direct print via Printix Client so Universal Print can be used on existing printers without using the Universal Print connector on a local machine and without an expensive server. This also keeps print local to minimize traffic and prevent conversion in the cloud.
