Clearwater, Florida - London, England
12 January 2005
Software Shelf® corporation today announced the release of Version 3.0 of Print Queue Manager™, the advanced printer management tool for Microsoft® enterprise networks. With Print Queue Manager administrators experience true centralized control of printers, queues, and print jobs across a network. It is for help-desks or anyone responsible for managing printers or print jobs through Windows NT, 2000, XP or Windows 2003.

With its exclusive APM™ (Automatic Print Management) technology, Print Queue Manager gives administrators the power to move jobs between printers, eliminate printer downtime, identify and automatically handle printing bottlenecks anywhere on the network. Other functions include print job disaster recovery, load balancing, and print broadcasting (simultaneously sending one job to multiple printers anywhere).

Print Queue Manager's features eliminate the need for administrators to walk to a remote location to administer a printer or solve common printer problems. All network printers can be managed from a single window. Common tasks that used to take hours can now be done with the click of a button.

Customers using Print Queue Manager include organizations of all sizes that need to control their printers more efficiently and effectively and reduce printer TCO (total cost of ownership). These include NASA Command Center, CNN, the RAF (Royal Air Force), Panasonic, and government agencies, corporations and universities around the world.

Print Queue Manager installs in minutes on a Windows print server and can be administered from any workstation running its System Administrator Client.

Print Queue Manager is the companion product to award winning Print Manager Plus®, the only Microsoft verified and certified print accounting software in the industry and used in over 10,000 companies, universities, schools and government agencies worldwide.

Tech support and sales is provided in 12 European languages during American and European Business hours.
