Our serverless print management solution is built around a universal print driver and was originally designed to make enterprise-grade Chromebook printing a reality.
directprint.io achieved Google Technology and Chrome Enterprise Recommended Partner status within 18 months of launching. Through strong growth in North America, directprint.io has achieved a large footprint in the K-12 education sector and significant success in the SMB and retail markets.
Our cloud-native approach provided a strong basis for expanding our services to bring feature parity to the Microsoft ecosystem. We cover all three major operating systems – Windows, Chromebooks and macOS, and we support the two leading cloud productivity suite providers – Google Workspace and Microsoft 365.
The cloudification of print is an integral part of organizations’ digital workspace strategies. An overwhelming majority (93.1%), of respondents to the Digital Workspace Ecosystem Alliance (DWEA) 2023 ‘State of the Digital Workspace’ survey said that their cloud strategy involved cloud printing.
directprint.io RED can help dealers and MPS providers to stand out from the crowd as now, more than ever, channel vendors need to differentiate, across bundled offerings, features and price.
Next-generation MPS engagements are no longer hardware-centric, they need to support customers’ needs around mobility, security, cloud and digitization.
