Rollout SAP Faster
For your Basis staff and other teams involved in your SAP rollout, printing is likely far down the list of priorities. There are many steps in SAP implementation — many applications to install and test, databases to configure, and end users to train. Throughout the many steps in SAP implementation, most people tend to assume that “printing will just work.”
By default, organizations tend to utilize the native printing facilities supported by the operating system. However, this approach is limited in its effectiveness. Each print queue may need to be defined multiple times on more than one print server. Different SAP print access methods may require input from different sets of administrators. Configuring such an environment requires a great deal of careful collaboration between different departments, each with its own set of priorities. Given the many parties involved in SAP implementation, the process of SAP printer configuration leads to delays that can impact the timeline of the overall project.
LRS Output Management software streamlines the process of SAP printer configuration by centralizing control of all printing-related functions. A single team can configure SAP printers, manage the SAP spool, and maintain the environment on an ongoing basis. LRS tools eliminate the need for many redundant print servers, decreasing potential points of failure and making the overall environment easier to maintain. Fewer print problems occur, and those that do are quickly handled using an intuitive set of web-based management tools.
