Time to rethink Print Management

Printing is still a daily requirement in most offices. But why is office printing and managing office printers the same today as it was yesterday – complex and expensive? Given the potential of cloud technology, web-based apps and the efficiency of working online, shouldn’t we expect something better to happen that might disrupt this industry? Enter Printix, a Danish startup with a history in the business of print management. Printix is accepting the challenge of taking a revised look at every aspect of office printing to make it cheaper and easier to install, manage and service office printers. We have started by looking at print infrastructure and manual tasks that are ripe for automation in the cloud. The basic philosophy behind Printix is to provide invisible automation, simplify routine admin tasks and share insight with customers. Our starting point, is putting print infrastructure in a box, automating it, moving it to the cloud and offering it for free. It is time to rethink print management. It is time to:
  • Eliminate the need for a print server.
  • Shift away from legacy IT services to cloud-based services.
  • Offer inexpensive subscription-based pricing for cloud print management.
  • Help organizations pursue an online print management strategy.
  • Empower consumers to do their own print management.
We launched our first product last month establishing a new cloud-based platform for print management aimed at the SMB market. Self-driving print infrastructure is on the way. When you print, many processes, software and hardware work together so your documents can be printed. Today, many of these tasks are manual and require an IT specialist. Printix has developed an intelligent cloud solution to automate the installation of print drivers and creation of print queues, without special knowledge requirements. Printix Zero is a free software download that eliminates the need for a print server and is designed to automate and simplify most common print management tasks. This generation already expects invisible automation from companies and the next generation will expect even more. It is our experience that a lot of the print management software on the market today is not suitable for SMBs. Implementing the solutions can take a long time and they are often complicated and costly for smaller companies. We are initially aiming to help small businesses make office printing easier and cheaper. Our ambition is to make the best print management platform in the world – to automate anything we can and move products, support and services to the cloud. It is time to rethink office printing and print management. We will travel with customers and welcome other ambitious partners to join us on this journey. Please share your challenges and ideas with us to make things better.
