Virtual desktop (VDI)

With increasing numbers of organisations moving infrastructure to the cloud, as well as adopting hybrid working models, virtual desktop environments (such as Citrix) and hotdesking setups in the office, it's easy to overlook the impact that printing is now having on network bandwidth performance and costs.

By optimising print performance to compress print jobs to a smaller size, ThinPrint offer a cost-efficient way to ease the strain on the IT department, enabling significant cost savings across multiple locations.
