A “Cloud Wind”: Why Jotun Chose Printix for Cloud Print Management Across Their Global Sites
Cloud print management service, Printix, chosen by global coatings manufacturer, Jotun, to provide digital transformation for printing
Jotun had already started on a journey of digital transformation when they realized the need to extend that to their enterprise print needs. Their legacy Windows 2008 servers were about to be deprecated by Microsoft. The need was urgent, but they wanted a best-of-breed cloud solution that was futureproofed and worked within an Azure environment. Jotun chose Printix cloud print management service to replace its on-premise Windows server with a serverless cloud infrastructure. The need was across all of Jotun’s global sites, remove their dependency on print servers, whilst maintain a seamless and easy user experience.
Jotun has around 7000 seats, utilizing 70 legacy servers, across 230 worldwide sites. The project was carried out in super-fast time and was up and running across 60% of sites within 2 weeks, with 95% of sites serviced in 2 months: User uptake was seamless.
