Reducing your costs 

Please contact us to discuss how we can save you cost. We can reduce your driver development costs with universal printer drivers (UPDs) and driver development kits (DDKs). UPDs reduce the requirement for in-house development resource, as there is no need for multiple development teams working to develop and maintain multiple drivers. DDKs reduce the requirement for in-house resource, as the difficult parts of the development, like the printing pipeline, are handled by the DDK. We can reduce your font licensing costs with our innovative Dynamic Device Font technology.

We can reduce your device-side firmware costs with our host-side XPS technology. Our host-side XPS technology converts XPS to either PCL or PostScript, so you can achieve Microsoft conversion without incurring the cost of an XPS controller. We also offer host-side XPS technology that conversts XPS to XPS-lite, so you can achieve Microsoft certification with a low cost/low functionality XPS controller, using the host-side to handle any controller side limitations through load balancing.
