Software on your printing equipment? What does that mean?
Print Management software is a system implemented on your print environment that not only supports your printing environment by managing the devices you have and managing the supplies you need remotely, but it also has a significant impact on allowing your teams to be free to worry about their day-to-day job rather than your printing equipment. It can also have significant cost benefits too!
Your business can have complete visibility on your print environment and fleet and allows you to have the controls in place you need by remotely analysing your print out-put.
Here are Mode’s top 3 benefits of print management software:
- Tracking & Analysing
Print management software will track what you are spending, which department is spending it and where the greater volumes of prints are being produced. With this knowledge you can allocate the correct devices to the right departments, and more importantly have greater visibility. It also means, should you need to charge back any costs for printing, to your clients, you have the reports and the clarity to do this.
- Day-to-day management
The software can aid you in choosing the right device in your fleet for the print you require. Not only that it will queue the work being printed to keep projects moving and alert you when your printers need maintenance, updates. It also alerts your managed print provider as to whether you need more consumables so that these can be sent automatically. This all reduces the impact on your time!
Security around your printing devices is an ongoing concern. Often highly confidential information such as salary information, confidential letters, are seen on printers when they shouldn’t be! Print Management software addresses these concerns by implementing “Follow me printing” as part of your print management software requirements. This will mean that print jobs are not released until the user authenticated to release the print job is present at the device.
