Printing to a single queue and releasing from any device (Find-Me printing) is essential on large sites. It's easy for users, but often more complicated for systems administrators. Why? Because finding a print driver to work across a mixed fleet of different printer brands can be a frustrating trial and error exercise.
PaperCut's Global Print Driver provides a vendor-neutral solution to make both printing and administration easier for organizations with mixed fleets.
PaperCut's Global Print Driver works on the widest possible range of printers out of the box, and supports all the print features you’d expect - duplex, color, paper size and tray selection. Plus, on selected printers, you can also select stapling as a finishing option.
Unlike universal print drivers from manufacturers, which are designed to work with multiple models across a single brand, PaperCut's Global Print Driver works happily across both multiple models and multiple brands.
Easy to deploy and use
This signed print driver makes it easier to set up a Find-Me/Global Print Queue in a multi-vendor environment, supporting all print devices on a single server regardless of vendor. Users experience a familiar print dialog no matter what device they intend to use.
Deploy this Windows cross vendor driver quickly using standard driver deployment. Mac users already have a similar experience. The in-built Mac Generic PostScript driver is fully compatible with PaperCut's global queue.
Using a vendor driver
Do you have a predominant vendor on site and would like to use their driver? Use PaperCut's PDL transforms (advanced) to help make output from one driver compatible with another.
