Manage Printers in a Nonprofit Office 

So many of us are working from home, but when you do come in to the office, there are some IT networked items you need, like A/V and printing. 

The big challenge with printers in our hybrid work environment is how to make them easily accessible to staff when they come into the office with their portable laptop. The access to office-located printers must still be managed and regulated to allow staff – when in the office – to use the office printer/s. 

Johan Hammerstrom, Community IT CEO, walks us through the solutions available to modern offices. With cloud-managed printing solutions, the installation details of every printer at a particular office is stored in the cloud. There is also a special software agent that runs on the staff member’s computer. When the agent detects that the computer is on the office network, it downloads the latest configuration settings from the cloud and automatically (and silently!) installs the latest printers. When the agent detects that the computer is away from the office network, access to those printers is removed.

Learn how to manage printers in a nonprofit office and how to make it less complicated and more seamless for your staff.
