PrinterShare is widely used by people around the world. The service is available for everyone who wants to use it. As you may know, the PrinterShare software that you install on your computer is not all there is. In addition, there's central PrinterShare service that we are running to make PrinterShare network function. This is what we call PrinterShare Public Service. It may work for you just fine, however if you run or represent a business entity or a group of users, no matter how big or small, you may be interested in our Commercial Solutions.
If you are planning on using PrinterShare for 5 users of more, you may consider purchasing Bulk Subscription package. The package removes free version limitations and switches off advertisements for all the users included. The client software doesn't need to be re-installed or changed in any way. Next time your users login to PrinterShare network they will be automatically switched to subscriber mode, just like if they have paid subscription fee. The more licenses you buy, the more discount you get. Here's the pricing model for Bulk Subscription:
|5 Users:||$40 per month|
|10 Users:||$75 per month|
|20 Users:||$140 per month|
|21+ Users:||Please contact us for special pricing|
Your users will never be asked to enter billing information; however all the subscriber features will always be available for them as long as your Bulk Subscription is in the active status.
Next step up would be to isolate your users from anyone else in the world. We can host and run dedicated PrinterShare server for you and your business, much like we do in the public domain. You will have separate list of users registered on the network. When searching for printers, the users will only see printers within your printing network. Printing streams and documents will flow through the physical server dedicated to you and never intermix with public domain printing data. Dedicated Hosted Solution is maintenance-free for you - we will run and maintain the server. Pricing for the Dedicated Hosted Solution is as follows:
|1 - 100 Users:||Setup fee: $295||Monthly fee: $395|
|101 - 1000 Users:||Setup fee: $295||Monthly fee: $595|
|1001+ Users:||Please contact us for special pricing|
With dedicated solution your users would download software from your server, for instance running under print.your-domain.com, instead of the public one. You'll be able to maintain user list, switch on and off their access, reset password and do other basic administration functions. You could also upload the list of users in which case the users would not need to register individually. The dedicated server can be connected to your network(s) via VPN. We'll work with you to configure and maintain such connectivity (additional charges may apply).
Own it! Run your own PrinterShare network with Printer Share Locally Hosted Solution. You'll host and control the server and will not have a need to rely on public service available for everyone in the world. Your users will be able to print documents and files only within your printing network no matter how wide it can be - one office or across the globe.
Your printing network will rely on your communication channels. If you wish, the data may never leave your local network domains or be transferred via VPN if you have one. Performance of your printing network will be fully in your hands. You have an option to synchronize Printer Share user list with any existing LDAP directory or to let users register on-the-fly much like they do with public Printer Share network.
Locally Hosted Solution contains server installation package currently available on Microsoft Windows platform. See system requirements and installation instructions for more details. Configuration is straightforward and easy. Once installed and running, the server package will provide client software for your users. The software is almost identical to the one used in general Printer Share network, except it's pre-packaged for your installation and pointing to your server by default. In addition to downloading from your server, you may choose to distribute client software via Flash drive, CD or other channels within your organization.
At the same time Locally Hosted Solution is highly customizable to fit your specific needs. Some level of customization available through system configuration. You can do it yourself if you wish. Certain knowledge about networks and WEB applications is required. More extensive customization can be provided as a service from us.
No advertising materials will be ever displayed or printed with your Commercial Solution and your users will never be asked to upgrade their subscription unless you want it (user subscription is one of the custom features that you can enable).
