Both ExcelliPrint® Standard and Premium eliminate the need for specialized, expensive IPDS printers by allowing IPDS print jobs to print on conventional Windows-based printers. Using ExcelliPrint in IPDS print environments lowers costs and maintenance. ExcelliPrint Premium transforms IPDS documents into archival formats, like PDFs. Also, Premium includes an iSeries interface for managing iSeries IPDS devices and spool files from within a browser.

  Premium Standard
