DataServer® is a powerful enterprise output management system.
Hours: Mon - Fri, 8am - 7pm ET


DataServer® is a full-featured integration platform designed to protect your investments and address special requirements. It is a modular design which provides unlimited flexibility. DataServer® has the ability to operate on any platform (i.e. Windows®, Sun Solaris®, Linux®, Unix®), take all types of print data in from any environment (web submissions, network, mainframe, etc.), and manage the print jobs for any destination, enabling your business to explore new opportunities for automating manual processes and doing more with fewer resources. It can do this while performing conversion routines on each print file so that each destination receives optimized output for the targeted printer. Dynamic, one-to-one, data stream transformation from any industry standard PDL to another ensures that your output is produced as expected.
