For large businesses and organizations that need to efficiently balance the print load of multiple ID card printers and software uses, AlphaCard ID Suite Print Server Manager makes it easy to connect up to 25 printers.Why Choose Print Server Manager
Print Server Manager makes it easy to print extremely large batches of cards by gathering all print requests and automatically distributing them to the printers based on the number of print requests and the number of printers available. This will balance the print load and spread it evenly among all the pooled printers.
Print Server Manager is for large businesses with up to 25 ID card printers. It is recommended for organizations that need to print thousands of cards per day – for example large universities that must issue new student and staff ID cards within the first few days of the new school year, or businesses with thousands of employees who are issued new ID cards each year.Using Print Server Manager
