So to answer the question, “When will businesses switch their printing from on-premise to cloud?” They already are.

However, not all businesses just yet.

PaperCut beta a breeze for super early Universal Print adopters

For some workplaces, the idea of joining a product’s beta program for an entire school district would make them nervous. Not for Val Verde.

Shifting to remote working during Covid-19 made the once simple tasks of accessing files and printing unnecessarily painful and clunky.

But Val Verde’s IT wizards Matt and Brian smelled an opportunity to move everything to the cloud…

How does cloud print management actually work?

The dream of cloud print management is to outsource printing to a cloud provider without having a print server on-premise.

6 print and IT forecasts for 2021

The Cannata Report recently posted an impressively detailed watchlist of 2021 trends and it got me thinking… What will I be keeping an eye on this year?

While we’re all keen to sweep the memory of 2020 under the rug, it’s pragmatic to acknowledge that its shadow is already looming over 2021.

The Lubbock Independent School District’s 27,000 students and 3,500 staff do a lot of printing! And that printing was done on thousands of printers.

Something had to be done to manage the printers (and everything about them), and to find a replacement for the soon-to-be deprecated Google Cloud Print they were using.

Here’s what they did.
