Pull Printing

Also called “follow-me printing,” pull printing allows for a print job to be sent to a pull-printing server, which delivers the print job to the printer. This frees up the user’s computer for other tasks and reduces network traffic. Word-processing documents and even Web pages (referred to as Web pull printing) can be pull-printed without having the file opened on the user’s computer. The user sends the document’s location to the pull-printing server for processing.
