Get faster, more secure cloud-based printing with less burden on your IT resources. Plus, monitor print usage and view data for better decision making, all while providing industry-leading levels of cloud security, control and performance.
With Lexmark Cloud Print Management, you can send documents from your computer, tablet or smartphone to any enabled Lexmark printer within your enterprise. A monthly subscription plan lets you pay as you go, for flexible print management that fits your needs and your budget.
In Lexmark’s own use of Cloud Print Management, we eliminated all of our print servers, saving more than $650,000 annually. We also achieved:
reduction in print spend
reduction in pages printed
reduction in supplies usage
These are all reasons that Buyers Lab (BLI) recognises Lexmark Cloud Print Management as an Outstanding Print Environment Management Solution, saying,
Lexmark Cloud Print Management offers an easy experience for end users ... (and) IT personnel won’t have to put a lot of time and effort into setting up and managing the solution—especially compared to on-premises competitors.
Printed papers piling up or being thrown away around your printers means costly waste. With Lexmark CPM, print is held in the cloud until the user is ready to retrieve the pages. That means you control when and how many pages are printed, and you eliminate waste. It even lets you set user and group quotas, or limit capabilities per device such as colour printing.
Your printed materials may contain confidential or private information, raising HR, legal, or competitive risks. Instead of sending documents through a print server to a designated print device— where the pages sit out in public view until they are retrieved—they are transferred to the Lexmark Cloud where they are held in a personal queue until the user authenticates by entering a PIN or swiping a badge at the printer.
Lexmark CPM is provided as a subscription service, so you can easily scale the system as your business needs change without making additional investments in print infrastructure. Pricing is based on the number of user or device licences that are purchased. You can add new users and devices without adding additional print hardware or staffing.
When industry and regulatory environments make fully cloud-based print release untenable, our hybrid option allows jobs to be held on users’ PCs for release in lieu of sending the print jobs outside the network or to the cloud. You get the savings and security of cloud-based print release without losing the advantages of collecting print job metadata for reporting and management.
In addition to full support for printing from Mac, Windows and Chromebook devices, Lexmark CPM keeps mobile users printing, too. Whether they initiate print jobs from a smartphone or tablet, mobile users can release their documents at any Lexmark device in your organisation, whenever and wherever you’ve allowed them access.
Give your users the ability to release printed documents from any authorised device across one or many locations, while curbing the use of hard-to-track personal printers. You can even cut back on the number of feature-heavy devices on the network—tabloid printers, finishing capabilities and colour, for example—by encouraging sharing via print management.
