HP Universal Print Driver for Windows helps solve the age-old issue of driver management for IT managers by giving businesses the option of deploying a single print driver for the entire print environment. The tool provides users with one driver for the HP general office printers in their fleet - virtually all HP PCL 5 and Postscript general office color, as well as black-and-white laser printers, manufactured since 1997. In addition, the driver automatically supports new HP LaserJet printers and multifunction printers, eliminating the need to deploy new drivers when equipment is upgraded or when the printing environment expands.

The updated HP Output Server allows customers to incorporate more features from the devices it manages. In addition, HP Output Server improves integration features with SAP systems and provides higher performance and reliability in SAP fax support as well as advanced finishing features on printers.
