All that’s required from the admin side is sending an invitation email that links users to a straightforward onboarding process. This feature saves hours of setup time and drastically cuts down on helpdesk tickets, freeing up your day for more important tasks.

Task 2: Streamlining Print Queue Deployment

The Challenge: Managing and deploying print queues can be a nightmare, especially in environments with numerous printers and users. The traditional process is often manual, repetitive, and prone to errors.

Task 3: Enhancing Secure Print Release
