ScrewDrivers vs. UniPrint

ScrewDrivers vs. UniPrint
Technical Comparison to UniPrint Server
For years, system administrators have adopted and implemented Citrix, Remote Desktop Services, and desktop virtualization platforms. Printer management
has been problematic for these system administrators because of the manual nature of installing and updating printer drivers on every Citrix or Remote
Desktop Server. For over 15 years, triCerat has developed unique, proprietary solutions to extend and enhance the printing experience for companies running
Citrix or Remote Desktop Services environments. UniPrint Server offers a solution to the remote printing problem but does not address some important factors.
ScrewDrivers®
UniPrint
Server
Print Job
Compression
Yes
Yes
ScrewDrivers® provides a high rate of compression due to triCerat’s proprietary TMF print format. UniPrint Server offers compression functionality as well but not at the same rate as
ScrewDrivers due to UniPrint’s PDF print format.
Seamless
Configuraiton
Yes
No
ScrewDrivers® provides seamless configuration with a simple software installation on the
client machine and server. UniPrint requires installation on the client machine and server as
well as an additional piece installed on a dedicated spool server that processes all PDF print
jobs. In this scenario, system administrators face licensing, hardware, and maintenance costs
as well as another potential point of print failure.
Print to PDF
Yes
Yes
ScrewDrivers® offers a true virtual printer driver solution as well as a PDF creator as an
additional feature. UniPrint Server relies solely on PDF conversion to process all print jobs.
Finishing
Features
Functionality
Yes
Yes
The ScrewDrivers® second print dialogue feature guarantees total access to all printer
finishing features, such as stapling, hole punching, and collating. The UniPrint Server presents a
pre-configured subset of features, which may not include the features required by the user.
Printer Naming
Scheme
Yes
No
ScrewDrivers® offers a wide range of printer name customizations. This is a key feature for
compatibility with older applications and applications not designed for use in Remote Desktop
Services/Citrix. UniPrint Server only offers their UniPrint naming scheme, which can be
confusing for end users.
User Printer
Assignment
Yes
No
ScrewDrivers® can be configured to virtualize any number of user printers as determined by the
system administrator. triCerat’s virtual printers are individual to each user session, eliminating
congestion of print jobs. UniPrint relies on one global printer for all user print jobs on the server.
