The Danish company’s Printix Freedom product was first announced last month.
The company revealed in May that the product was to be subscription-based, and the “first print management-as-a-service platform”. That earlier beta release was “set to disrupt the market and make print management for everyone”, and to offer “flexibility, productivity, cost savings and sustainability contributions” alongside being both “simple and affordable”.
That beta launch was Printix’ “first premium product” release, and the official release offers customers “zero print server, zero management and zero cost”, as well as aiming to “fundamentally improve the efficiency and cost of office printing and make print management accessible to everyone”. A subscription allows users to “print to any network printer from any device” securely, and the programme can be deployed “in a matter of minutes instead of hours”.
The company also pointed out that “it’s not necessary to install vendor-specific software” or other additions, because the cloud feature “securely manages the print infrastructure and automates admin tasks”, creating “unprecedented convenience and cost savings for companies of any size. Printix commented that it “hopes to satisfy customers in the SMB market, while opening up new opportunities for businesses such as IT resellers, IT services, managed print services or cloud service providers”.
Hugo Marqvorsen, co-founder of Printix, stated: “We want to take the tedious and costly management part out of print management. With the adoption of cloud applications continuing to grow, like Microsoft Office 365, consumers expect to have more convenient options for printing and print management – but at a cost that suits them.
“Print infrastructure and IT-support often represent significant amounts to the total print management cost. Our solution is purposely designed using the technologies made affordable by cloud computing and mobile phones – it’s fit for purpose, and allows for the cost savings to be passed on to the customer.”
