What would your business be like if you had a free tool that allowed you to see the statuses of all your network printers at once?
If, with a click of a button, you could view your entire list of printers and have any issues immediately flagged: paper jam, out of paper, ribbon end error…and more?
The good news is that you don’t have to imagine what this would be like. The tool already exists. It’s our TSC Printer Management (TPM) tool, and it’s available, right now, for download on our website—at no cost.
TSC Printer Management: What is It?
Printer Management is designed to make your printing job easier.
This integrated tool incorporates features that enable you to explore more than one printer’s settings/status remotely and effectively manage a large array of printers.
5 Printer Management Features
With Printer Management, you can:
1) Manage multiple devices in multiple subnets and locations — globally
Printer Management allows you to change multiple printers’ settings; download graphics, fonts and firmware; create a printer bitmap font; and send additional commands to a vast amount of printers at the same time.
You can do this–remotely–on a widespread scale, over different subnets and even different business locations across the globe.
2) Create specific printer groups for viewing purposes
Create a printer group with three conditions (IP, interface and model name). After selecting a group, it will list the specific conditions for printers only, allowing you to easily troubleshoot specific printers.
3) Receive alert functions
You can use the alert function to monitor specific groups and specific printer statuses, and record them. By doing so, you’ll receive alerts when, for example, printers have statuses like Ready, Printing, Paper Jam, and Out of Paper.
4) Give printers aliases to easily identify many printers at once
With the “Manual Name” feature, you can assign aliases to your printers and make it easier to identify many different devices at once.
5) Simply set, explore, and configure your printer settings
There are several taps (Basic, Advanced, ZPL settings, DPL settings, RS-232 and Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Bluetooth and Information) included in the printer configuration feature of Printer Management. This allows you to either see all your printers’ settings at once and make changes to all your devices, or see them individually and change changes per specific printer(s).
In addition, you can also change the printer language and emulate different fonts.
