Xerox print drivers lauded by industry for freeing up IT staff and assisting workers on the go
NORWALK, Conn. -- Two print drivers introduced by Xerox Corporation (NYSE: XRX) earlier this year earned a “Technological Innovation Award” this month from Industry Analysts, Inc., a market research firm specializing in office automation.
Industry Analysts praised the Xerox Global Print Driver and Mobile Express Driver print drivers for simplifying printing management for IT departments and making it easier for workers to print from multiple locations. The drivers’ ability to support competitive printing devices, as well as nearly all Xerox printers and multifunction printers (MFPs) played a key role in the award selection.
“The beauty of technology is when it makes things simple,” said Ted Needleman, senior technical director of Industry Analysts Technical Services Division. “The Xerox drivers work regardless of who made the printer plus you don’t need to spend all kinds of time setting them up. Xerox has made the whole process seamless.”
With the Xerox Global Print Driver, IT administrators don’t have to install specific drivers for every printer and MFP they deploy. As a result, installation and management is simplified and management costs lowered. In addition, IT administrators can pre-configure default settings before distributing them to users. Unlike competitive drivers, the Global Print Driver supports both Xerox and non-Xerox networked products that use standard PostScript, PCL 5 and PCL 6.
“This award underscores Xerox’s dedication to delivering real-world solutions that help our customers simplify their processes, become more productive and improve their bottom line,” said Rick Dastin, president, Xerox Office Group. “Providing these free print drivers is just one way Xerox continues to stay ahead of the technology curve and anticipate the needs of our customers.”
For mobile workers in a large campus or on the road, the Xerox Mobile Express Driver lets them print to any available printer or multifunction printer on a network - whether it’s a Xerox printer or not. To use the Mobile Express Driver, users simply plug into a network, pull up the intuitive pop-up print screen that automatically identifies all the available printers on the network, pick a printer, and click ’print.’ Once a printer or MFP is chosen, it is saved in the user’s list of “My Printers” making it even easier to find and use in the future. With the Mobile Express Driver, gone are the days of bothering IT managers or office strangers for help connecting to a printer.
