EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform (HCP) is a multi-tenant cloud print infrastructure platform that enables organisations of all sizes to benefit from the agility and innovation of cloud technology.
HCP enables the entire printing infrastructure to be deployed and controlled from a single web-based interface and can be delivered as a hosted Software as a Service offering or installed as an on-premise private cloud.
Key features include a true single print driver, the ability to store print jobs locally until released for print and to set location aware printers; integration with Azure and Office 365, Active Directory and LDAP role-based permissions alongside cloud-based identity providers such as Okta; as well as a serverless PC client, enabling partners to create their customers’ own print environment on the HCP multi-tenant platform and replace existing Windows and Mac-based print infrastructure in under ten minutes.
HCP offers customers implementing a Zero Trust network with the highest level of assurance. It provides the strongest security between endpoints including encryption of data at rest, and enables end-user organisations to use their own certificate infrastructure. Moreover, the SaaS model means customers benefit from an always up to date security model and continuous design improvement.

The company has recently developed cloud-based apps for the HP Workpath ecosystem, enabling HP partners to capitalise on the cloud model.
Printix is a provider of a cloud-based print management solution that delivers modern printing to office workers and at the same time saves on administration and infrastructure costs. The company was founded in 2014 by five IT and print entrepreneurs including several cofounders of SafeCom, a leading global print management software company.
Modern printing for office workers with Printix means printing from any device (Win, Mac, Chromebook, Android and iOS) to any printer/MFP/plotter/label printer – directly or later (secure print). At the same time, Printix is easily managed and deployed to all office workers using deployment tools like Microsoft Intune or any other MSI tool, including configuring automatic print queue installation based on location or department. Printix can monitor all printers/MFPs on a regular basis and register who is printing what, when, and where. Printix has integrated with Microsoft Power BI to also offer customers the ability to download online reports to have further analytics available on their printing environments.
Printix is positioned and promoted by both Microsoft and Google, as the preferred solution for cloud printing.
Kyocera MPS hosted in cloud
Kyocera Managed Print Services hosted in cloud take the MPS concept to a whole new level by allowing organisations to outsource the management – from device monitoring and maintenance to traffic management and print policy enforcement – of their entire print network.
In a Managed Print Service hosted in the cloud, everything that happens between users hitting print and the document arriving at the print device is taken care of by Kyocera. It’s virtualisation for the print network, removing the requirement for onsite print servers and for in-house IT to support the print network on a day-to-day basis.
Cloud printing takes the MPS concept one stage further by adding an offsite data centre to create a virtual private print network.
