Would you like to print from any device to any printer, without admin support?

Now there is a simple solution that provides users trouble-free printing from any PC, Mac, virtual desktop, or mobile device to any printer whether they are in the office, at home, or on the road. With Simplify Printing TX, you can relax and feel confident knowing you've brought users' printing environment under control without hours of printer driver management and user configuration. Finally, end users can set up, share, and print where, when, and how they need to without you holding their hand.

Background

Tricerat has been working with driver free printing since 1999 and was the innovators of ScrewDrivers and Simplify Printing that are still on the market today. Having done this, they took a step back and looked at what they learned over the years and what could have been improved. The outcome of this work is Simplify PrintingTX or Project Torx.

 

The Challenge - We understand your agony

Infinite combinations

  • Dozens of printer brands, thousands of models.
  • Printer Drivers are problematic, hard to distribute and keep up to date.
  • Numerous client devices and platforms.

 

Powerful new environments lead to complexity

  • BYOD and BYOP headaches.
  • Remote printing issues.
  • Mobile printing compatibility (AirPrint, etc).


Current solutions are incomplete

  • Dealing with multiple vendors.
  • Each solution has no knowledge of the others.
  • Users are confused and can’t get their job done.
  • Help Desk and IT Admins are overloaded and can’t address all the needs.
