A print driver is a small piece of software that directs output from a computer to a printer. Typically, the operating system controls such software, so it can monitor how a computer talks to hardware devices like a printer. In the case of SmartPrinters, no special software installation required, no extra software needed at all. Download or use an existing print driver and then have your print jobs for archiving, further processing and analysis.
The SmartPrinters wasn’t designed to override your printing habit and assume you want every print job sent to a smart printer. Instead, it’s intended to be waiting in the wings, available whenever you want to use it, and taking a backseat again whenever you’re done sending a particular print job to a smart printer.
