We believe that Chromebook printing should be reliable, powerful and easy to administer.

Founded in 2016, directprint.io is a Software as a Service (SaaS) print management software designed specifically for Chrome and Chromebooks.

As a Google Technology Partner, our system is fully integrated with Google G Suite. Cloud-based management and analytics help to streamline, provide insight into and improve reliability of your Chromebook printing.

directprint.io is comprised of two components:

  1. A SaaS (software as a service) printer management platform
  2. A universal printer driver

Through combining the power of cloud administration and local network printing, our unique solution acts as an alternative to Google Cloud Print and aims to ensure a more reliable printing experience.

“As a Chromebook early adopter, I quickly realised that printing was slow and unpredictable. Chromebooks deserved more. I wanted to develop a Cloud-based solution that not only improved reliability and speed, but also simplified printing by removing the hassle of print servers.”
