The cloud based system allows administrators to define and view:

  • The physical location of printers
  • Printing policies:
    • Duplex/Simplex
    • Color/Mono
    • Secure printing - PIN print release
  • Rich system data:
    • Ink/toner levels
    • Errors
    • User behavior

Printers and policies can be referenced individually or on a room, property, region or organizational level, giving administrators maximum freedom to limit or expose printer lists to fixed or mobile workers.

directprint.io includes a unique full print stack - a universal print driver designed specifically for the web.

The simple architecture, combined with the intelligence of the directprint.io client allows Administrators to concentrate on printing insight rather than the complex solution setup and maintenance.

Documents never leave the local network, reducing your external bandwidth requirements and potential points of failure.

Print events, errors and printer status infomation is securely sent to the directprint.io cloud.

Clients automatically receive printer map, policy and software updates. No user intervention is required.

The directprint.io intelligent client for Chrome contains functionality to:

  • List your printers in the standard Chrome print dialog
  • Send print jobs direct to local printers
  • Gather status information from the printer
  • Implement unique paper and toner saving policies
  • Report error and usage infomation to the directprint.io services

The intelligent client removes the need for local print servers, custom drivers or other in-house software or intermediate PCs to process jobs.

The directprint.io client can be pushed to Chromebooks via the Google Administration Console or downloaded by users direct from the Chrome store.

A simple 4-digit code allows mobile workers to install new printers easily when they arrive at a remote office.
