Print Manager Plus reduces wasted print outs

Print Manager Plus reduces wasted print outs

Print Manager Plus by Software Shelf offers a powerful yet simple and cost-effective way for any organization to assess, control and reduce printing costs – now estimated to be as high as 3% of revenue. Print Manager Plus software is the only All Digital Solution in a market place inundated with costly expensive hardware-based solutions. Print Manager Plus is a fraction of the price of the hardware-based tools, yet brings the same level of functionality.

Clearwater, Florida and London, UK -- Software Shelf International, Inc today announced its recession-proofing solution for any organization with network printing: Print Manager Plus 2008, the All Digital Print Accounting and Cost Reduction Software.

The waste of money from out-of-control network printing has been highlighted in many industry reports: a hidden and pernicious operational cost within any organization. In today’s tough economic climate, there needs to be a proper solution to this hidden cost that would allow companies to exercise proper control in the area of their in-house network printing, to avoid becoming another statistic.

Software Shelf’s solution is the recently launched Print Manager Plus 2008 which offers full printing control with detailed reporting on exactly what is being printed and by whom. It can restrict printing by file type, by user or by group and even enables daily quotas. The result is a marked reduction in printer wear and tear, use of electricity and consumption of supplies. This is great news for the environment as well as the company’s bottom line. Organizations using Print Manager Plus report enormous savings in their printer maintenance and paper and ink costs.

“The problem is that the total cost of printing is unknown for most enterprises. Industry researcher Gartner estimates that companies may spend an average of up to 3% of their revenue on output, making it one of the most over-looked and under-managed assets of their front-end systems,” says Danny Byrnes, Vice President, Software Shelf.

Many professionals in large organisations or schools may find this surprising, because few realize just how much they spend on printing, let alone what they can do to reduce it. In fact, a study by Lyra Research indicates that few network managers and IT departments track printing costs at all. But, an accurate assessment of costs is essential in order to start reducing them.

“Having the ability to monitor, control and restrict one’s printing over a network is so fundamental that, in hindsight, one would expect it to have been included in the operating system; but it wasn’t, so we’ve simply filled that void,” adds Danny Byrnes.

“If users are allowed unlimited printing, they will print unlimited pages” and “Paper doesn’t grow on trees” were 2 pertinent responses from a recent industry study of Print Manager Plus customers commenting on why Print Manager Plus 2008 is a must-have for any organization in these times of looming recession.
