PrintCache PrintCache, from Laser Tools Corp., 5900 Hollis St., Suite G, Emeryville, CA 94608, (800) 346-1353 or (415) 420-8777 in California, $149.

This new, high-performance print buffering program recovers much of the time currently lost to printing tax returns, general ledgers or any long printing task. PrintCache also contains the optimized drivers necessary to run any printer at its highest speed. The product offers tax preparers real time savings and productivity benefits. In a standard system, the computer remains "locked" to the printer for the duration of the print job. The longer the print job, the longer the computer remains unavailable for processing. PrintCache recovers much of that time and allows the user to start processing the next tax return or client report. Conventionally designed print spoolers degrade PC processing speeds and slow actual printing in order to free the computer from the printing task. PrintCache is able to drive printers at their highest possible speed without any noticeable impact on PC processing. And the new buffer's optimized drivers are often much faster at printing than the normal print routines built into DOS and applications software.

PrintCache requires less than 9K of DOS memory and can be configured as small as 5K. Requirements are DOS 2.1 or higher and an IBM PC, PS/2, or 100% compatible.
