Organizations of all sizes are excited about Universal Print
In March of 2020, we announced the private preview of Universal Print. Today, we have more than 2,500 organizations testing the new service. With the shift to remote work, being able to set up printers and users efficiently and effectively has become more important than ever. Universal Print remains an important part of fulfilling our customers’ business needs, and ~235,000 print jobs have been processed through Universal Print per month since the private preview began in March. Universal Print has enabled employees and teachers to continue printing from home, while critical industries such as healthcare, food processing, and government continue to utilize Universal Print for their needs.
“As the largest financial services institution in Norway, printing is critical to our day-to-day business. Universal Print has helped us streamline the way we manage print for cloud connected Windows 10 clients at DNB, and eliminated much of the frustration associated with printing. We have rolled out Universal Print to 1,000 users and counting thus far, and have been very pleased with the overall experience.” – Morten Fagermoen, EUC Architect, DNB Bank ASA
At Wild Rose School Division in Alberta, Canada, essential departments have continued to operate. Universal Print has enabled staff members to print from home, minimizing the number of times they had to enter school buildings to run print jobs.
“In a situation like this where access to the building is restricted as much as possible, it’s difficult to offer staff high volume print. If our HR or payroll departments need to run checks, they can’t do that from home. Being able to give them Universal Print right now has been a lifesaver. And it’s been able to help keep people safe in the face of a pandemic, by keeping them home as much as possible.” – Scott Hetherington, Senior Systems Analyst, Wild Rose School Division
