Tuesday, May 21, 2019 — (Citrix Synergy, Booth 403) ThinPrint today announced it will showcase its ezeep product line for Windows Virtual Desktop at Citrix Synergy 2019.The ezeep solutions ensure that the advanced networking capabilities, robust management tools, and high-definition user experience optimizations provided by Citrix are complemented by a comprehensive, enterprise-grade print experience.
ezeep for Windows Virtual Desktop is a managed cloud printing solution that is easy to install directly from the Azure Marketplace. Seamlessly integrated with Azure Active Directory, the print solution can be immediately available to the entire enterprise. The easy-to-use web console enables central management of the print environment without having to think about print data security, failover, printer drivers or print server operation.
“Printing remains a critical element of many workflows in core industries, such as healthcare, financial services, manufacturing and education, which is why we work closely with Microsoft and Citrix to deliver a cloud printing solution that offers the best value and functionality to our joint customers,” says Charlotte Künzell, CEO at ThinPrint. “Much like accessing a desktop or application from anywhere through a web browser, the ezeep Connector and the ezeep Hub make local and corporate network printers conveniently available to users without the need for expensive and complicated VPNs”.
With the accelerated speed of DaaS adoption through Windows Virtual Desktop, the need to reliably connect printers with hosted desktops over the Internet and provide fast printouts is growing. Windows Virtual Desktop and Citrix enable easy deployment and scaling of virtual desktops and applications on Azure. However, integrating the local print infrastructure into the cloud-based virtual desktop environment is a unique challenge. The ezeep cloud’s unique position in the market addresses this issue making printing simple by hiding its complexity behind two simple apps and a tailored web portal in all Windows Virtual Desktops scenarios.
ezeep is designed to work seamlessly with Windows Virtual Desktop to deliver a guaranteed perfect user experience. This includes an intuitive self-service console that allows users to make their own print settings to ensure proven and innovative workflows meet user and customer expectations. It also ensures secure and easy connectivity to existing print environments and fast and reliable printing from any device. As a result, IT departments can free up expensive, time-consuming resources by migrating their print servers and print management functions to ThinPrint’s ezeep solution.
“Our customers are facing an ever-challenging technology environment ranging from the need to reduce costs to migrating legacy applications running on Windows 7,” says Christoph Hammer, Senior Vice President Cloud Services at ThinPrint. “Windows Virtual Desktop, with its extended support for Windows 7 and innovative partner value add from companies like Citrix and ThinPrint, are an important step in growing our industry and delivering increased value to our customers.”
