Print Management for the Construction Industry

The Complete Printing Solution

Remove the costs of existing print servers and enjoy centralised control over all printers on the network with one server and a guarantee that printing always works.

For construction companies it is vital that the building work is not delayed due to issues with slow, erratic printing both in the office and on construction sites.

Choosing the Cirrato single server print management solution offers complete cost control for printing & uniquely removes Network Bandwidth issues traditionally associated with printing on remote sites.

Single server printing

With Cirrato all printers and print queues are managed with just one server. Removing print servers is an instant cost saving of an average £2,000 per server per year. Having to maintain just one server also greatly reduces time for administration and configuration while improving control over every printing device on the network.

Cirrato is the industry-shaping Single Server Printing solution that offers multi-site organisations complete print management with reduced IT footprint. One server manages up to 30,000 print queues with minimal bandwidth use, eliminating the need for all other print servers. Print whenever and where ever you need – at the lowest possible cost.

Network Infrastructure Benefits

Consolidate print servers, minimise print-related WAN traffic and reduce administration costs – with improved printing speed and reliability.

In traditional environments, each time you print, the entire file is sent from the desktop to a print server, and then from the print server to the printer. As a result – even if the printer is next to you – the job might be sent twice across the network.

To avoid heavy network traffic, organisations with multiple locations need to invest considerable resources in operating and maintaining a fleet of local print servers.

With Cirrato Single Server Printing, this problem goes away: all print jobs are sent directly from the client to the printer. Using tiny messages to communicate with all network clients and print resources, Cirrato assures that printing works. It is the only print management device you need, even in a global network.

Management and Support

Manage a global printing fleet – including USB printers – in a transparent tree-structure, update drivers across the organisation on-the-fly and effectively support your fleet using proactive problem resolution tools with multi-language support.

The Cirrato server maps, in real-time, a tree structure (down to individual office or floor level) where printers and queues can be added, removed or managed and drivers updated.

The driver management interface lets you upload or remove a driver across your entire organisation (including all desktops and operating systems) with a few clicks.

End users can easily search for and install any printer on to their desktop. Cirrato will automatically make sure that the correct driver is used.

Support is done through Cirrato’s powerful web-based, multi-lingual support interface. It lets you proactively discover and solve problems, move jobs between queues and message end users when you do – often before end users notice and all in their own language.

Cost and Waste Control

Cirrato has a rich set of functions that scale across the enterprise, reduce costs and help save the environment. There are embedded integrations with the World’s leading Print Manufacturers that help reduce print related costs. The list of approved manufacturers and devices is constantly growing, so please contact us for the latest approved device list.

Vendors

While Cirrato improves reliability, offers full reporting and accounting, and increased control over printer and driver inventory, its functions are highly scalable and easily turned on or off.

For example, roll out Follow Print only in departments where sensitive information is printed, or where cost savings can be made from removing local USB printers. Or, introduce print rules for certain document types, jobs exceeding a certain page count or in specific office locations.
