Web Based Driver Installer (WBDI) (Lanier)

Product Overview

WBDI is a web-based solution that allows users the ability to search for printers by location and then install the right printer drivers without help desk or IT support. Designed to support large printer installations, with a large user base, the WBDI solution significantly streamlines the process of updating drivers that may need to occur daily or during planned computer refresh or printer fleet refresh events.
