ThinPrint Management Services Now Available to Automate the Management of Large Windows Print Environments
New powerful and nimble software enables quick and easy set up and management of thousands of printers
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 — ThinPrint, manufacturer of the leading print management software, today released ThinPrint Management Services, a powerful and nimble tool to quickly and easily set up and manage large Windows print environments. The Windows PowerShell-based ThinPrint Management Services automatically integrates thousands of printers and drivers, including generating all settings, enabling the setup and migration of print servers and ensuring that print servers and workstations are kept up-to-date.
The larger the print environment, the greater the challenge it poses for IT departments. Within these environments, dozens, and even thousands, of printers must be painstakingly created manually, while print servers are continuously being kept up to date. The PowerShell-based ThinPrint Management Services accomplish this time-consuming procedure, including the entire setup and management, in a fully automatic and script-controlled manner.
With ThinPrint Management Services, even companies and service providers that don’t know the print infrastructure of their branch offices or customers can automatically build a high-performance print environment. ThinPrint Management Services are suitable for any Windows-based print environment – with or without print servers. Thousands of printers and drivers, including all settings, are created within just a few minutes. The automated processes not only result in significant time savings, but also circumvent manual entry errors and the resulting problems when printing.
As many scripts as are necessary can be run simultaneously on different servers. This saves time and leads to unprecedented speeds when setting up or migrating print servers and creating printers. In addition, several administrators can work simultaneously on various tasks and therefore optimize their work processes.
“Whether for server migration, disaster recovery or when updating and changing settings, the script-based ThinPrint Management Services cover all previously time-consuming tasks,” said Thorsten Hesse, CPO at ThinPrint. “Administrators no longer need to know which printers are in their branch offices. This is a great message for our numerous service provider customers, but also for many other IT departments, where a clear picture of the print infrastructure in use is not always available.”
ThinPrint Engine Premium customers can take advantage of ThinPrint Management Services at no additional cost.
Windows PowerShell has established itself as the standard among IT professionals and ThinPrint Management Services has been developed to fit perfectly into this framework. For administrators who are still not fully familiar with PowerShell, ThinPrint offers an online help tool that includes many important PowerShell commands: These sample scripts can be simply copied and pasted by administrators in order to be used.
