Print Management and Copy Control Solutions (aka "Pay-for-Print")
Whether your organization is a library, college, business or non-profit, controlling the cost of printing and copying is a critical task. We all have budgets and are under pressure to cut costs, while trying our best to conserve the Earth's resources. Managing these expenses is a clear example of when being green helps your bottom line.

Libraries want to provide printing and copying services to their patrons that are easy to use and manage. A print management system is a great way to charge fair prices for the use of library devices. While they're not trying to turn a profit, libraries want patrons to make responsible decsions about printing and copying, and at the same time bring in the revenue to keep equipment updated and working well.
Colleges, universities and trade schools want their students to be able to print and copy using quotas that are a part of their student fees, or using one-card accounts linked to their student ID or credentials. The print management system can also be expanded to the administrative side, where print and copy costs are even greater, utilizing a departmental charge-back feature to improve accounting.
Businesses and non-profits want their employees to make informed and responsible decisions each time they print or copy. While employees do not pay for printing, an effective print management solution allows administrators to create and enforce print policies. Employees are shown print and copy costs, and prompted to make the best decision for the organization (i.e. print in B/W instead of color or print double-sided instead of single.
