Even though the revolution in distributed employment and decentralized teams didn’t begin with the pandemic, it did advance faster. Efficiency is essential for ongoing success in the post-pandemic environment because remote labor and highly digitalized workflows are the norms.

When considering system upgrades, IT managers have two key responsibilities. One is making tasks easier for IT professionals and staff. The second is strengthening security. Because remote operations open up a whole new world of possible vulnerabilities, the latter is especially important for distributed teams.

Moving to serverless printing is a means to streamline and modernize IT processes with these objectives in mind.

Serverless Printing – What is it?

It is printing that takes place without using conventional print servers, usually made possible by the cloud. In bigger environments, traditional on-premises print infrastructure relies on print servers to manage requests from numerous print users and the continuing burden of managing and updating print drivers on individual PCs.

Print servers provide improved control and centralized print management, however, their management is still ineffective and expensive. Additionally, print servers may be a security threat.

Docutec, a multifunction printer supplier and managed print service company explain the benefits of serverless printing.

What are the benefits of serverless printing?

No more Hardware

Hardware for print servers is expensive to purchase and keep up. Print servers and the constant maintenance they require are no longer necessary thanks to serverless solutions.

No more Drive Management

IT staff experience unnecessary stress from managing print servers and print queues. One of the most difficult and time-consuming chores for IT is managing print drivers, but well-designed platforms eliminate this need by doing away with vendor print driver maintenance.

Supports Hybrid & Mobile Companies

By providing employees with safe access to print services offsite, cloud printing solutions also better support mobile and hybrid workforces. Cloud-based secure release procedures, for example, make it simple for an employee to print from one office to another or transmit a print job from home to the office.

Improves Admin

Better flexibility, increased scalability, and more effective administration are all benefits of a company-wide cloud printing system. The entire print operation can be managed by web-based administration through a single window, new devices can be detected automatically and added to the platform, and updates can be carried out automatically to keep the entire office up to date with the most recent features.

Better Security

Because of their vulnerability to attack, print servers have grown to be a top target for cybercriminals looking to obtain confidential company information. Recent hacks have generated headlines, with PrintNightmare being the most well-known. This security flaw is fixed by eliminating the requirement for a print server.

It’s the Logical Choice

Having a system that improves admin, improves security, eliminates hardware and drive management as well supports workforces that use a hybrid or mobile model is fantastic. And it is all possible by eliminating print servers. Serverless printing is here to stay and should be adopted by all sizes of organisations worldwide.
