RPM Software Print Server Upgrade Expands Support for Unicode, Asian Text Processing, PCL Conversion to More Formats

Idaho Falls, Idaho, October 19, 2010 -- Brooks Internet Software, Inc. today released RPM Remote Print Manager® Elite v5.1 software print server, with the ability to convert PCL into more formats, increased Unicode support for document conversion to PDFs, and extended support for Asian character sets and fonts. RPM Remote Print Manager adds value to enterprise LPD print jobs by enabling complex workflows, such as conversion to PDFs and emailing, and converting from numerous formats and archiving to disk. The Windows-based software works with legacy systems including mainframes, iSeries (System i), Linux, CUPS, Solaris, HP3000s, and HP9000s.

“Enterprises using Windows are often challenged by print jobs from legacy systems, including those from IBM and HP,” said Dave Brooks, president of Brooks Internet Software. “The RPM software print server makes it much easier to process and manage these print jobs and allows for customized document access, conversion, and formatting. This reduces erroneous and extraneous print jobs, altogether saving enterprises significant time and money.”

“In this upgrade, we’re addressing the enterprise need to convert PCL print jobs into a variety of electronic documents, especially PDFs, which more businesses rely on daily,” said Brooks. “And, with the extended Unicode support, we are supporting our enterprise customers in China, Japan, Korea and other Asian countries who use wide-character sets for text, printer and folder names, file paths, job names, and fonts. This makes the software easier to use, and ensures Asian customers can correctly print localized characters and fonts.”

RPM Remote Print Manager Elite edition is priced at $648 with support for up to 99 printers. The Select edition is priced at $324 with support for up to 10 printers.  Volume and government/education discounts are readily available from Brooks Internet Software and its worldwide network of reseller partners.
