What’s New in v5.3 of Equitrac Office & Express

Equitrac Office and Equitrac Express print management software have both been recently updated to version 5.3, enabling organisations to further reduce costs associated with unnecessary printing and print infrastructures, and increase document security, while providing new solutions for IT departments deploying serverless and mixed-fleet print environments.

The new versions of Equitrac directly address print challenges created by the influx of mobile devices, mixed printer fleets, and workers on the move inside the enterprise. Version 5 allows users to print how they want and where they want, while removing IT dependencies on print servers and management of print drivers.

Equitrac Express 5 provides an integrated solution for education and library environments, adding support for flexible cost recovery and payment methods for all constituents in these two environments.

Equitrac Office 5 is built specifically for the commercial and office market, providing intelligent print and copy management tools to reduce document output costs, enhance security, and increase efficiency of existing output equipment.

I-Queue

Most significantly, the new versions include the new I-Queue feature which enables enterprise-wide printing without the need to process print jobs through print servers. I-Queue printing moves the processing of print jobs from the print server to individual user desktops, eliminating server costs and cutting network print traffic by 50 percent. In addition, a repository called the driver store, where all print drivers for every output device on the network are stored, automatically manages print drivers for IT. Rather than manage individual print drivers for each desktop client, IT departments only need to ensure drivers within the driver store are up to date. The driver store automatically selects the right print driver for a user as needed, based on the client location and device, enabling users to print documents without concern for which printers may be available or whether print drivers have been loaded to their computer.

Other New Features & Benefits

  • Easy Integration – Equitrac’s Hybrid Print Control provides a single print management platform that supports enterprises in server-based environments, using I-Queue and, in many cases, environments that support both deployment types.
  • Enhanced Secure Printing for Mobile Devices – For situations where organisations need to provide secure print access to guests, or don’t want to invest in authentication hardware at a device, Equitrac has extended its Web Release functionality to support secure document release using a web browser.
  • Increased Productivity – With the Equitrac Capture & Send add-on, print and scan workflows can now be executed from a single application, allowing users to quickly and easily send scanned documents to email, fax, network folders or Microsoft SharePoint.
  • Secure Anywhere, Anytime Control – The new web-based system manager for user management extends the functionality of the existing client-based Equitrac System Manager to allow administrators to perform commonly executed tasks from any Web browser.
  • Business Aligned Reporting – Total print activity is tracked, can be filtered by user, department, account and device, and can be run for any defined time period. New built-in reports can show how many pages were printed from a workstation but not released to a printer. Or how many multiple-page jobs were printed from a workstation and automatically converted to duplex through a print rule.
