Managed Print

AlphaSix's managed print solutions are innovative implementations in which users print to a server, as opposed to sending the file directly to a printer. Then, the user can go to any printer on the system, and release any of their print jobs when needed. Managed print gives system administrators the option to add user group control, specifying which users can access which printers, which features on the printer they can use, or even scheduling certain timeframes in which users can print. Managed print provides better accountability for printer usage, which can lead to reducing waste and lowering costs.
