Lexmark Cloud Print Management lets you send documents from your computer, tablet or smartphone to any enabled Lexmark printer without the expense and hassle of a physical print infrastructure. This means faster, more secure cloud-based printing and less burden on IT resources. Plus you can monitor print usage and provide industry-leading levels of cloud security, control and performance.
Watch this short video to understand how cloud print management works.
Built with advanced cloud technology, Lexmark Cloud Print Management eliminates print servers, multiple print drivers and queue management and reduces the administrative burden on your IT team.
Instead of sending documents through a print server to a printer where the pages sit in public view until they are retrieved, they transfer to the Lexmark Cloud where they are held in your personal queue until you login or swipe your badge to authenticate at the printer.
Print output piling up or being thrown away around your printers means costly waste. It might contain confidential or private information, raising HR, legal, or competitive risks.
With Lexmark Cloud Print Management, you control output, eliminate waste and reduce security risks. It even lets you set user and group quotas, or limit capabilities per device, e.g. put a limit on colour printing.
Some industry and regulatory environments make fully cloud-based print release impossible. That’s where the hybrid option comes in. It allows you to hold print jobs on your PC for release, instead of sending them outside your network or to the cloud.
You get the savings and security of cloud-based print release without losing print job metadata for reporting and management.
In addition to full support for printing from Mac, Windows and Chromebook devices, you can print from mobile too.
Whether you print from an iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ smartphone or tablet, you can release documents at any Lexmark device in your organisation, whenever and wherever you’ve allowed access.
Give your users the ability to release print from any authorised device across one or many locations, while curbing the use of hard-to-track personal printers.
You can even cut back on the number of high-featured devices on your network, tabloid printers, finishing capabilities and colour, for example, by encouraging sharing via print management.
Lexmark Cloud Print Management is a subscription service, so you can expense print release without a capital outlay, and easily scale the system as your business needs change.
You can add new users and devices without the hassle of on-site server provision and maintenance, providing more resources to your users, faster than ever.
Plus you can monitor device usage and analyse data on organisational and individual printing practises and environmental impact, without extra hardware or staff.
To comply with your regulatory requirements and elevated levels of security, the hybrid option means you can print from the cloud while keeping documents on your side of the firewall.
