How load balancing across multiple printers improves efficiency?

Printer load balancing is a feature used when several print jobs are sent to a group of printers. Load balancing will distribute the print jobs to other printers in a round robin fashion. Printer pooling does not work this way. Instead it sends print jobs to a primary printer in a non-round robin fashion. If the primary printer is busy, it will then route to secondary printers. When the primary printer becomes available again, print jobs will resume on the primary print device.

How cloud printing to remote locations can save you money?

Today, users in remote locations or sites commonly use VPN as a means to access host systems. VPN access means persistent connections and users become “virtual members” of the host system which can create security vulnerabilities. In many cases these remote users are not organic company employees but business partners or affiliates such as clinics or doctor offices. Organizations may not have control over these end user systems creating the potential for threats and network vulnerabilities. VPN connections also consume IT support resources and can be relatively expensive and complex to implement.
