Vision's print management software tracks, reports and monitors all print, copy, scan and fax output by user, device, department or cost centre including number of pages printed, colour, mono mix and duplex and single-sided prints.
This enables you to monitor and report on your print estate allowing easy identification of trends, costs and enabling accurate planning for future needs. The software also enables you to keep tight controls on costs by assigning prices to users or departments.
Print management software, as part of a managed print solution, minimises the time spent managing and solving IT problems, and reduce the frustrations of users who can't print when they need to. Our software provides a clear insight into which devices are available, which are not, and highlights "out of toner" problems and paper jams. Your IT department is kept informed and, if required, pre-defined rules can be set up and followed for speedier resolution, saving both time and money. In addition, costly-to-run desktop printers can now be monitored and usage controlled.
Secure "follow-me" printing allow users to securely print jobs at any networked device. Print jobs sent to the print server are paused until the user authenticates at any multifunctional device or printer and deleted from the print queue if not collected after an agreed period reducing the cost of unwanted print.
To help keep costs low for you and your users, print management software can automatically route print jobs to the most cost efficient devices in the office (eg colour print jobs from desktop printers to larger multifunctional devices). "Pop-up" boxes can be used to proactively inform users if they're attempting to print somewhere when lower cost alternatives are available.
