Secure printing processes that save time and effort for IT
Microsoft Universal Print (Academic Pricing) is a modern print solution that organizations can use to manage their print infrastructure through cloud services from Microsoft. It runs entirely on Microsoft Azure. When it's deployed with Universal Print–compatible printers, it doesn't require any on-premises infrastructure. It is a Microsoft 365 subscription-based service that organizations use to centralize print management through the Universal Print portal. It's fully integrated with Azure Active Directory and supports single sign-on scenarios. It can also be deployed with non-compatible printers by using Universal Print connector software.
Simplified User Experience
Microsoft Universal Print has been designed to be as easy as possible for your staff to use. In most cases, you can simply bring up the Print function on any web application, and your connected printers will show up. Their intuitive user experience lets you search for the nearest printer based on the desired location, and Microsoft has built in a GPS-based location search for maximum user-friendliness.
Microsoft Universal Print improves operational efficiency by removing the need to maintain print infrastructure and by increasing the ease of printing for your staff. Legacy printing solutions require print server procurement, device management, frequent updates, energy costs, as well as an IT team to manage your print resources. It comes with easy scalability as your organization grows.
Microsoft Universal Print has been designed with an emphasis on security. Many organizations were initially reluctant to take up printing servers on the cloud because they feared their sensitive, confidential data would be exposed. Microsoft has responded by baking in multiple security initiatives into Universal Print. All the data sent to the printing servers will be protected by AES-256 encryption by default and stored in the same way as your Office, Outlook, Teams, and OneDrive data.
