So what exactly is secure follow me printing…?
Secure follow me printing allows the user to send a print job to a printer, but requires authentication from the user at the point of collection.
There are many benefits to installing a secure follow me printing solution. Read on below to find out more…
- Improved security
Whether you have a legal department in house, or work for a private company where you would like to ensure that your company accounts are kept confidential, secure printing is an essential way to maintain data security. Many offices need secure printing, even if they don’t work in an industry that has confidentiality requirements.
- Reduce printing costs
Follow me printing can help to reduce printing costs, because employees are required to release their print jobs at the printer, ensuring there is no wasted or accidental print outs.
- Happier helpdesk
With follow me printing, system administrators are no longer required to manage print queues, giving them more time to focus on other important tasks.
- Environmentally friendly
Follow me printing can help to promote environmentally friendly printing behaviour. For example, you can set up individual print profiles, which allow you to select double sided or black and white printing.
