Technology plays a significant role in our personal and professional lives. It helps us be more productive (well, most of the time) and it helps make our jobs a lot easier. But, sometimes, the biggest challenge with technology is just getting it to work in the first place.

Now that you have an idea of what printer works best for you, or you just made a printer purchase, you’re probably eager to get started. However, things such as driver installation, network configuration, and firmware settings can really slow you down.

Our team here at AB&R® is committed to making sure the solutions we offer work right out of the box, and that’s why we offer our Printer Configuration Services. This service allows you to use our team as a resource for your printer configuration needs. The image on the right highlights our printer configuration services, and below is a highlight of each service.

New Printer Software configuration
Printer software is basically a program that gets installed on your computer allowing you to design a label or card, then sending it to the printer. With our printer configuration services, we’ll help you with this piece of the installation and making sure the appropriate software configuration files are loaded.

Hardware assembly
Some printers have optional accessories such as memory upgrade or interface cards that require additional assembly. Our team will make sure all necessary hardware components (does not include Zebra rewind kits) are correctly installed and function as they should.

Network configuration
Connecting your new printer to your existing company network can be a tricky task, but with the help of AB&R®, we’ll have it connected in no time. Our printer configuration services team has a wealth of experience with network configuration, IP address, and security settings to make sure your new printer is connected and can communicate securely with your other systems.

Firmware upgrade or downgrade
Printer firmware is essentially a piece of software inside of a printer allowing it to communicate information between your printer and computer. Our team will make sure the correct firmware version is installed and upgrade or downgrade to the version that works best.

Connectivity/functionality testing
One of the benefits of our printer configuration services is that we see things full-circle, start to finish. The final and most exciting step of our services is that we make sure everything works. Our team will do a final walk through to verify connectivity, then we’ll do some test printing. After all, the most important part of your printer purchase is making sure it works.

Other services
In addition to our printer configuration services outlined above, we also offer additional hours and on-site training available upon request. This is a great benefit because it allows us to train your team on your new printer, software navigation, and how to replace ribbons as needed.
