Information Management System
User Tracking, Reporting & Analytics
To help you better understand your print fleet, including users, pages printed and device usage, we have programs that will track and report all print activity.
User Activity Tracking
- Track end users print volumes
- Ability to view types of print jobs (ie: Black and White or Color)
- Easily export data
- Users can be grouped to track printing on departmental or office level
Tracking device activity will allow you to more effectively use your printer fleet. Knowing how often and which users are using a device can assist in making decisions with regards to printer fleet size and device type maximizing efficiency.
Device Activity Tracking
- View activity for each device in your fleet
- Device usage – overutilized devices versus underutilized devices
- Print records for each device and charts
There are a variety of reports available to help you find and review the information you require to better understand your print fleet. The reports show data in real-time and can be run from anywhere on your network. Ad-hoc and custom reports are available to generate the data you require.
Print Policy Management
There are ways to best manage your print fleet. Following the steps below will assist in your print management:
- Option to use popups to remind user to print duplex
- Have large print jobs sent to printers capable of high page volumes
- Reduce the number of emails printed by users
- Do not encourage the printing of web pages in color
Alerts help with print management. Notifications will keep administrators in the know providing alerts for printer errors, low toner levels and other issues that may occur.
Document & Device Security
Did you know there is print software that will find the printer located closest to you without you having to do the work of locating it?
When you send your print job to the virtual printer it enters a virtual queue. The user then finds the printer that is most conveniently located and releases their print job. The ability to release your print job when you get to the device allows for a more secure print environment.
Card readers also maintain a secure print fleet. Card readers connect to the network and are compatible with any printer. The user will send their print job to the virtual queue, the user then goes to the printer and has their identity authorized via the card reader. Once authorized their print job is released.
