TORONTO, May 2, 2017 /CNW/ - Ricoh Canada Inc. today announced the release of their Serverless Print Solutions – a new and unique approach to print management that addresses the often significant costs not accounted for by traditional print strategies.
Ricoh's Serverless Print Solutions also focus on the raft of benefits and savings available to businesses that currently employ a traditional print model, where numerous local print servers receive and distribute print traffic – placing significant demands on the network throughout the entire print environment. With Ricoh's Serverless Print Solutions, a single print server efficiently and securely manages print drivers, printer queues and printing policies across the entire print environment – even in the case of large enterprise customers. By enabling a print architecture that does not require print jobs to be sent through a local print server, the challenges associated with heavy network print traffic, sporadically unavailable local servers and the all-too-common surge of user support calls, can all be elegantly avoided.
Ricoh's Serverless Print Solutions also have a significant impact on cost savings across an organization's entire print infrastructure. By providing a direct local print relationship between device and printer, Ricoh's Serverless Print Solutions instantly reduce network-wide print traffic and drive substantial IT efficiencies in terms of available bandwidth increases. And thanks to the solution's unique software architecture, this translates to an immediate reduction in the number of print servers required across an organization's entire network – a savings conservatively estimated at over $6000 per unit.
"In addition to clear cost savings and measurable efficiencies in IT, our Serverless Print Solutions also provide customers with powerful reporting features," said Eric Fletcher, VP of Marketing at Ricoh. "With more than 100 web-based reports available, administrators can, for example, identify underutilized devices and quickly right-size their fleets – further managing hard costs."
Ricoh's Serverless Print Solutions also provide robust security and compliance capabilities, allowing administrators to enforce best practices and user-rules at both the global and local levels, with reach that even includes devices connected via USB. The solution also supports card-based authentication, which adds an additional layer of security and user accountability.
