New Print Management Software for Schools and Colleges Reduces Wasted Printouts by Up to 50%

Print Manager Plus stops wasted printouts in schools

Print Manager Plus 2008 can make a substantial dent in school, college or university budgets for toner, paper and print maintenance, significantly reducing costs by eliminating unnecessary student and staff printing. It is the only all-digital solution for educational establishments that is available at a fraction of the cost of other complex hardware-based products, providing the same level of functionality with better quality and without the need for expensive hardware or additional training for staff and students.

Clearwater, Florida and London, UK -- Software Shelf International, Inc recently announced the latest version of its cost-saving solution for schools, colleges and universities: Print Manager Plus 2008, the All-Digital Print Accounting and Cost Reduction Software. The system allows print quotas and restrictions to be set per student (and teaching and admin staff) whilst offering detailed tracking of all printing history.

The software can restrict printing by file type, by user or by group resulting in 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 school’s overall cost of operation. Schools using Print Manager Plus report enormous savings in their printer maintenance and paper and ink costs.

The product, which runs on any operating system and works with all printers, is extremely intuitive and easy to use and just looks like an integral part of the operating system itself. Other solutions involve complex and expensive hardware requiring specialized training for both staff and students. The Print Manager Plus 2008 software-only solution provides the same level of functionality and even better quality at a fraction of the cost.

“Exactly how much money is being spent on all aspects of their own printing (paper, ink, printer maintenance and electricity usage) and the printing service they provide for students, free of charge, is unknown to most schools. If students can print photos of sports cars or of Paris Hilton unchecked, they will,” claims Danny Byrnes, Vice President, Software Shelf. “And teachers, nearing their quota, will perhaps decide against printing that handout they were planning for their entire class, getting their students to find the information online instead. Print Manager Plus can, in fact, eliminate wasted printing in schools by as much as 50%!”

“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.
