Print environments can vary greatly depending on the size of the organization, communication distribution methods and the business systems that are employed. An enterprise print environment is a common way we describe the mid-size to large businesses that have significant Information Technology (IT) infrastructures, distributed sites, and volumes of information that requires integration to ensure a smooth business flow. These environments tend to be complex and the IT people who work within them are always searching for new ways to make them automated, efficient and secure.
Information flowing through an Enterprise is inclined toward print, even with all the digital technology we have at our fingertips—mobile phones, tablets, listening devices like Alexa, and wearable technology. There is something about print that continues to provide value, whether it is the portability, ease of reading, record keeping, proof of delivery or because it is required by regulatory processes. This is why there are a multitude of inputs into an enterprise print environment, including remote printing, secure pull printing, desktop or workgroup printing, SAP print output, marketing print and transactional communication, just to name a few. These complex environments may lead to tension within your business processes and IT departments in areas of scheduling, re-routing of jobs to maximize load capacity, tracking and visibility.
What if there was a better way, a better technology—a technology that could simplify the enterprise print environment while improving the IT investments your business has already made, all while decreasing costs?
What if your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) administrators had visibility over your systems and they had a solution to quickly resolve bottlenecks and print issues?
