Web to Print and its Benefits for Businesses
Print management via the traditional methods can be complicated and over-priced. Customers may need multiple servers to manage print job device monitoring, accounting, authentication, and submission. They need to pay a hefty amount to obtain, upgrade, and maintain print servers, which often lack a proper management system. In addition the finishing options that such printing solutions are limited, while mailing may still involve much manual processing.
