A benefit of a dedicated print management solution is its ability to work across a variety of platforms and architectures. Tricerat ScrewDrivers was initially purpose-built for remote desktop environments and has expanded for benefit across the end user computing spectrum of desktops and mobile devices.
ScrewDrivers installs are designed to layer on top of an existing setup. Initially, this means that existing printers can be imported into the system without interruption. For existing print servers, the ScrewDrivers Print Server Agent will leverage existing setups for fast setup with more flexible print assignments while improving performance, reliability, and scalability. For environments that use direct IP printing or are reducing print server footprint, ScrewDrivers Direct can scan the network for printer devices and import print drivers for automatic management.
When it comes to platforms, ScrewDrivers brings optimal login performance for VDI and multi-session Windows platforms. This applies to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, VMware Horizon, Microsoft RDS and WVD, and Cameyo. When using client printers, virtual channels are leveraged in the protocol for maximum security and performance. For network printers, a database query and virtual driver prevents delays in the logon process, giving the user dynamic and intelligent print capabilities even in shared-use and non-persistent environments.
Client access is an important part of any EUC solution. ScrewDrivers Endpoint Clients are available for Windows desktops, macOS, Linux desktops, IGEL endpoints, and other Linux-based thin client solutions. On Windows and macOS desktops, client printers can be mapped to remote sessions, or ScrewDrivers Printers can build print queues on the local desktop for use in local apps and dynamically add new printers from an allowed list or campus map.
Often the final piece of the print environment is mobile devices. ScrewDrivers provides mobile apps for both iOS and Android. Between the mobile app allowing printing from the device and the session agent in a remote desktop sessions, applications delivered through any delivery platform will have access to consistent user printing.
In all the discussed platforms and delivery methods, the Administrator manages all printing modes through a single database-driven console. This admin efficiency gain is matched by user experience and productivity improvements through consistent printer mapping and interfaces throughout the variety of technologies in use in the environment.
