Printer Connectivity

Connect your printer to a normally incompatible host

Printer Connectivity header

Certain businesses and organisations rely on the specialised output a particular printer provides. For example, impact printers (band printers and line printers) continue to be used for outputting high volumes of cheque and invoice data on pre-printed stationery. However, when an existing host is replaced with an incompatible alternative, printers such as these become redundant and the specialised output they provide can no longer be produced.

For this reason you may be forced to continue using an outdated host, and as such are unable to benefit from the latest technology advancements and improved data performance. Worse still, your printing process may become isolated from other parts of your operation that may have already integrated new host, data and application technologies.

To address this problem, IDS can provide you with a solution to attach your existing printer(s) to a normally incompatible host and correctly convert and format the data that passes between the two.

Example of an IDS solution providing connectivity between a normally incompatible host and printer

An IDS printer connectivity solution is non-invasive meaning no software, hardware or data modifications and additions are required on your host, and your business processes can continue uninterupted. Furthermore, the solution's small footprint enables it to be discreetly positioned almost anywhere.

Other functionality such as archiving, output management, mail sorting, document composition and data processing can also be integrated with the solution to further enhance your operation.
