CUSTOMERMETRICS

LRS software helped a European manufacturer reduce Windows®print servers from 600 down to 30 with projected savings exceeding 2.1 million euros.

Many large organizations deploy Windows print servers to manage printing from non Windows applications. They act as the print spooler for output generated in an application (SAP, EMRs, etc) and deliver the print-ready file to the printing device. What seems to be a simple and relatively cost efficient solution, it can turn out to be quite the opposite. It can result in a complex setup that makes it difficult to maintain the print environment and troubleshoot printing problems. Especially when it comes to print jobs that originated from business critical applications. In such cases,it is vital to know if printing was successful or not. And if not, where the problem resides. With many possible bottlenecks (application itself, print spooler, device), the troubleshooting process can be lengthy and can end up delaying business processes. This impacts your bottom line.

Establishing LRS software as the central hub for all document output and storage helps you by eliminating Windows print servers as well as printer-specific hardware such as DIMMs. By controlling all print output with a single instance of the LRS Output Management solution you also enable centralized accounting of documents across your organization. This helps LRS customers generate audit reports used for cost accounting, print reduction and internal device consolidation projects.

A recent independent analyst report concluded that customers achieve a five year ROI of 486% and a break-even time of 6 months with LRS print server elimination software.
