The only check is a perfect cheque

From a client perspective there are two rules; Never share information about a clients’ payroll and the software must print checks that are perfect or the bank will reject them and employees won’t get paid.

Traditional cloud printing is not secure or precise

Traditional cloud printing services break both rules; Print data must be sent in the form of a PDF to a third party who then streams it to a designated printer. And, the conversion from Postscript to PDF creates scaling issues and imperfect checks.

CirrusPrint changed all that. It runs on our Rackspace based servers, eliminating the use of a third party, retains features such as duplex and tray control, and passes to the printer exactly what it is sent. Security is further enhanced by the use of SSL between our clients’ printers and CirrusPrint. Best of all it is completely transparent to the customers, they simply print to their network printer as they always have.
