What is ZeroSoftware Pull Printing?

Celiveo ZeroSoftware Pull Printing allows you to use HP FutureSmart devices as job storage and then collect them from any Celiveo enabled printer where the user is authenticated. ZeroSoftware Pull Printing eliminates the needs of a central Print Server or Celiveo Virtual Printer installation, this is achieved by processing jobs sent from HP UPD to any celiveo enabled printer running ZeroSofware configuration.

ZeroSoftware Requirements

Celiveo ZeroSoftware Pull Printing only requires a HP UPD (Universal Print Driver) to be installed on the end-user workstation then it needs to point to any of the celiveo enabled printer that has been configured to act as a ZeroSoftware job storage device.
