Windows or Open Platform?
Some prefer applications based on Open Platform, because it offers higher security and is much easier and stable to work with. Others prefer applications for the Microsoft® Windows® environment because it is more similar to their other applications used.
You have a choice between a Windows version and an Open Platform version of EASY - depending on your needs and preferences.
The Windows version is installed and handled from Windows. It uses the spool queues and other components in Windows. However, the core of the secure print management system is the same – and of course that goes for the clients on the MFPs, too.
• The EASY Windows may be more suitable with IT policies in some organisations.
Open Platform version
The original Ubiquitech EASY print management software is running on open platform and can also run in a Windows environment. Here it runs as an open platform application independent of licenses and restrictions in Windows. However, it runs with full interaction with all the relevant hardware and user databases running in Windows environment or other systems. EASY for Open Platform can run on a virtual machine on a Windows-based server as well.
• The original EASY gives extra benefits such as easier installation and support, no need for MS licenses, and it gives higher security.
