Security in Printing with Cost Control and Ease of Use Solved

Windows Integrated Software for Active Directory or Work Group Configurations for Companies, Libraries and Schools Announced by Software Shelf.

Palo Alto, California, Clearwater, Florida, and London, England - 24 November 2009 - Software Shelf today announced availability of Print Manager Plus 2010 Release Station Option for schools, libraries, and companies who need to control user printing and printing security whether printing through a print server or in a work group.
This new version of the most simple and powerful software only (requires no hardware) Release Station on the market comes with Credit Card and PayPal integration. Users can pay for each individual job as they print or add credit to their own account balances using Credit Card or PayPal.

Software Shelf CEO, Mr. Bill Feeley states, “The Release Station has proved to be a very popular add-on for Print Manager Plus and we have been implementing this in many Schools, Libraries, and Companies around the globe over the past 2 years. There are many ways this can be used, and here are a few of the more popular implementations:

Secure Printing

“Using the Release Station, Print Manager Plus holds jobs the users send until they go to a Workstation or thin client panel at the printer/printers location and type in their User Account and password to see their job or jobs to release to the printer. Jobs not released after a specified amount of time are deleted. This handles printing sensitive material to a printer that is not located near the user. This also handles the stack of paper sitting at the printer at the end of the day that no one ever came to collect. Fully supports HIPAA, Data Protection Acts, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliancy.
Approved/Managed printing

“Users send a job and receive a pop up message asking them to see the teacher to release their job or the front desk (as in a library) to pay for their job. The person administering uses the console to see all the details of the job, including total cost of the job if collecting funds for it, and releases the jobs as needed.

Account Balance Management

“With the new Paid Balance feature within Print Manager Plus and Credit Card/PayPal integration, the software is set up to put the account balance management back on the users. They can pay for individual jobs themselves or add credit to their account balance if they run out using the Release Station Option.”
For those not yet using Print Manager Plus, a fully functional trial version good for 30 days can be downloaded from
For new customers, install Print Manager Plus first, and then install the new Print Manager Plus Release Station 2010 to gain all the powerful features of security and ease of use of the Release Station.

The Release Station avoids the problem of users printing documents then never going to the actual printer to pick them up. Also, security comes in as the tool allows for confidential material in an organization to not actually be printed at the printer for everyone to see, until the user is actually right there to release it and pick it up.

It supports all printers on the market and is a native extension of the Windows operating system with seamless Active Directory integration. It supports all printer brands on the market and printing for every operating system printing through a Windows Print Server.

Supports HIPAA, Data Protection Acts, and Sarbanes-Oxley compliancy.
