COSprint — Output management, print spooling and delivery for Unix, Linux and Microsoft Windows®

COSprint is an advanced output management and print spooling package used by enterprises with an IT infrastructure incorporating UNIX and/or Linux servers. It delivers the following major benefits:

  • Improved control. All systems in the enterprise, whether they run UNIX, Linux or Microsoft Windows operating systems, are configured to route output to dedicated COSprint Servers. By centralizing print management and print spooling on these network-aware servers, administrators have a comprehensive and consolidated view of all printing across the enterprise.

  • Reduced costs. Industry analysts estimate that printing costs between 1% and 3% of a company's total revenues. By consolidating output management, reducing administration overhead, providing user self-service to reduce help desk costs, and compressing output before distribution, the total cost of printing can be dramatically reduced. COSprint also allows printers to be shared across the UNIX, Linux and Windows estates, reducing the need for capital investment.

  • Service level improvement. Users become frustrated at their inability to print a document and use significant amounts of help desk time when problems occur. COSprint provides a web browser based user interface that allows end users to view the status of their own print requests, and help desk are provided with a centralized view of all output jobs, and printer status to ensure quick and accurate response to questions.
