Research has shown that implementing software tools to manage printing can reduce paper usage by up to 20%. The most effective print management software tools can be broken down in the following functions:
Device Management Software – Applications that facilitate proactive monitoring of devices within the print fleet (i.e. toner low alerts, maintenance required, page counts, etc.)
Print Management Software – Applications that facilitate the management of users by means of rules-based printing, such as default mono / double-sided printing. This will also facilitate a follow-me solution, where a user can authenticate at any device on any site.
