AKI, expert and software developer for print processes, launches the new release of PrinTaurus 5.8 making the administration of print environments faster and more user friendly. PrinTaurus for SAP helps IT administrators to integrate printers, to alter printer queues and to automatize configuration tasks.
With the new cross-platform and vendor-independent software you can connect to SAP and print servers nine fold faster than with older versions, especially in big environments. Connecting to e.g. 100 print server with more than 1.000 print queues takes about 35 seconds instead of several minutes.
Above benefitting from an increased speed it is now possible to configure your printing environment or react to problems more easily from one central point of administration. In the PrinTaurus GUI you can now see all printer queues of every connected print server.
Above that administrators benefit from multi selection options for altering print queues. Either in the tree structure or in the list view of the GUI the administrator can select a summary of queues with the same name. That way it is possible to e.g. alter drivers or connections for selected windows print queues on different print servers at the same time.
Eliminating Human Errors
With the new release the possibility of automatizing configuration tasks saves time and eliminates human errors: Your responsible IT administrator can set up templates for printer drivers in order to automatize repetitive tasks for printer queues.
One template can be used for up to 200 queues. In the past you needed to configure each queue single-handed in order to e.g. change a printer driver to b/w or duplex.
Customers using UPE (unicode print enhancement) are now able to administer these with AKI. UPE is a print enhancement used by all companies who need to e.g. print Korean, Japanese or Chinese characters.
All customers wanting to import printer assignments out of a xml-file can use an optimised assistant in order to integrate e.g. PrinTaurus Smart Spread in an existing printing environment. AKI’s software solution PrinTaurus SmartSpread simplifies the mapping of printers and provides a highly available printing environment with its fail-over concept.
SAP instead of ERP
„Our software developers have done a great job: After a significant performance increase from release 5.6 to 5.7 speeding things up by to some extent 15-fold times, they have now achieved another performance increase. At the same time the usability of the GUI was improved as well. Our customers profit by the new features a lot: either by getting free resources, increased quality and new possibilities of integration “, Marcus Winkler, Manager Product Marketing at AKI GmbH.

„PrinTaurus for ERP can now be called PrinTaurus for SAP. This clearly shows our affinity to SAP environments and the function of this product. “
The update is free of charge for all customers with an existing maintenance and support contract with AKI.
