Zebra Virtual PrintWare

You need high-performance software to maximise the value from your high-performance printers. To meet increased business demands, you must be able to monitor, integrate, and print to multiple networked card printers. Zebra Virtual PrintWare software lets you control it all.

Remotely monitor your printers: Zebra Virtual PrintWare Suite allows you to monitor multiple printers remotely, giving you complete visibility and control over when, how, and where each card is printed.

Powerful template-based printing: Now, with PrintManager Template-based printing, you can easily add card printing to any existing or new software application, without complex programming or application modification. You can manage card printers and distribute print job capacity across different locations to satisfy true on-demand local card issuance printing requirements — and maximise printer usage and return on investment.

Easily manage the most complex card-printing application: Trying to simplify a complex, geographically distributed, card-printing application? Zebra Virtual PrintWare has you covered. Centrally monitor printers, print-job status, status alerts, and manage large-volume jobs, all from one dashboard.

Easily integrate existing card-printing applications: PrintManager template printing has you covered with multiple ways to send XML or text based variable card data directly to PrintManager for managed card printing. From full SDK programmatic control, to on-demand text based hot-drop directory printing, PrintManager makes it easy to add card printing to your software application.
