  • CardExchange Producer SBS Dispatcher Module

CardExchange® Producer SBS Dispatcher Module

CardExchange® Producer Print Dispatcher Edition offers print farm solutions with load balancing printing.

Through the use of port numbers, the individual Print Servers are connected to the Dispatcher, registering themselves automatically when both are running.  The Print Client sends the jobs to the Dispatcher which in turn distributes them to the available Print Servers.  See the 'SBS Dispatcher and Server Layout Examples' document in the downloads tab for more information.

CardExchange® Producer Print Dispatcher Edition comes as 1 license and there are no limitations with regards to the amount of Dispatchers that can run on one system.

The CardExchange® Producer Print Dispatcher Edition, in combination with the Print Server Module, creates the perfect solution for large card production and issuance facilities.

CardExchange® Producer Small Business Server (SBS)

A multi user network license solution

Keep your data and card designs in a central location that can be accessed by multiple users. CardExchange® SBS is ideal for multi-site organisations and businesses such as universities, hospitals and large corporations.
