What do you like best?

Unprint enables our students to be able to easily log onto our systems and print their assignments and projects. Unprint is a stable production application for our University. We like the ability of Uniprint integration with our billing systems. We love our Uniprint system. Our favorite part of the Unprint system is the support technicians we work with. They are quick to respond, easy to work with and they know the product inside out. We work with many different vendors and Pharos is by far the best to work with in a Higher Education Environment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside to Uniprint is the occasional issue with the remote pop up on our students Mac laptops. We have found the integration with Mac devices to be cumbersome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Test it out in your environment for yourself. It is a great product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Uniprint enables our students to be able to print in a centralized location whether in our library or from their dorm room. The benefits of a managed printing system for our students saves us time and money and free's us up to work on other production applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I used the app and it's great. I consider myself fairly-tech-savvy but this is one of the best. The android version of the application has more features. I love that it has the options to print at many ranges of documents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that there are only a few limited options. On the app it can only print commands from the box app. The application for apple needs to be updated. For people that have android phones or devices they can do so much more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a chance to learn the features and once you have those down you will love it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to print less. I love how it has many options for printing range. Most websites and apps don't. It's a great concept and has been very convenient. I can simply print without having to go through a million of obstacles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Pharos Uniprint is an amazing printing software that my institution uses. It is offered to all staff for free, it is easily accessible, and it is a quick download! I can't ask for anymore in a printing-software manager. Thanks Pharos Uniprint! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about Pharos Uniprint, but when some people go to actually print on the communal printers, some less tech-savvy people can get confused on the printer's options and user interface. I have had to help teach people how to download the software and use it to print. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Keep on doing a great job! Pharos Uniprint is a quick and easy software for me to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instead of everyone in my office using their own laserjet printer (expensive on ink!), Pharos Uniprint allows everyone to print on one communal, high quality, ink-saving printer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We're able to have all our staff and students use pull for print and bill to multiple cost centers at any device. After 7 years, we really don't have any system issues with Pharos. Nearly everything that might warrant a complaint is something that was local to us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Our problems are our own. But we're always going to have to bill, so we need any new solutions to be billable to end-users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

I like that I have one print queue and people can then have their print job come out on any number of printers. Print once and release anywhere. It simplifies my job in IT and provides maximum flexibility. It is a great way to do secure printing as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike having to have a client on each computer. It doesn't help that this client often has to be upgraded and it a little problematic in its upgrade. I also do not like that printing from a mobile device is a separate purchased product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

PaperCut is the popular guy right now but uniprint is still a quality product. Give both a good review before just following the crowd. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Pharos allows our organization to print in a number of different ways. I can setup departments to print and monthly I provide them a bill for what they have used. Our students receive a free print quota and once they have used their allotment they can pay to add more. And our guests can purchase credits to use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
