pull printing

Also called Driverless Printing

Pull printing is a printer feature intended for large and busy organizations that print long,  or color-rich documents. A print job is sent to a pull printing server, which delivers the print job to the printer. This frees up your 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 your computer. You send the documents location to the pull printing server for processing.
