Print Release
Lexmark Print Management gives you the latitude to send
documents from your computer, tablet, smartphone,¹ or even
a web portal2, and to print them on any enabled3 printer
or Multifunction product (MFP). Instead of “pushing” your
documents to a designated print device—where the pages
sit out in public view until you retrieve them—you “pull” them
down from the print queue when you log in or swipe your
ID card at the printer. Instead of being tethered to a single
device, you can release your print job from a printer that
is most convenient to you or from one with the features or
capabilities that fit your needs.
Features

authenticate at the print device using the same card they

eliminating the need for an administrator to manually
enter badge numbers.
5. Session-Based Login—Allows you to perform multiple
output tasks without having to swipe your card

document, change print options, and select specific
pages to print.

in and print documents that are in your queue.

associated infrastructure. Or you can purchase the solution

best. Lexmark deployment experts will help you choose
the model that meets your requirements, maximizing the
effectiveness of your output environment.
