Key Features & Applications
  • Pay for Print - charge for network printing to recover costs & reduce unnecessary printing.

  • Authentication - users must swipe card or enter ID to release print job.
  • MobilePrint - print from any email-enabled mobile device to any printer.
  • Departmental Chargeback - enables faculty, staff & administration to allocate print/copy costs to a specific budget center, which could be an academic department, administrative office, program, grant, contract, etc.

Pharos Uniprint® was the first cost-recovery software solution developed for higher education — and it’s still the market leader. Uniprint is a flexible, scalable, and device-independent system for tracking, monitoring, controlling, and charging for network printing. It routinely delivers print cost savings, paper waste reduction, and convenient print services to millions of users in more than 1,000 institutions worldwide.

With Pharos Uniprint software you can:

  • Recover your printing costs with student pay-for-print and use the recovered funds to defray current expenses or pay for needed improvements and upgrades.
  • Save money by deploying processes and technologies that encourage responsible printing, including Secure Release Here® and Informed Print.
  • Help your institution go green by dramatically cutting printing waste. Reductions in the 50-80% range are not uncommon.

  • Enable Departmental Chargeback with the Administrative Print Application to control and manage a shared print/copy budget with pre-established allocations and users to prevent overspending.
