Rules Based Printing
Document printing is an essential part of the daily business routine. But left unsupervised, printing can quickly turn into a source of unexpected costs. Organizations need to establish clear guidelines that offer flexibility but restrict printing to what is really necessary. This is best done by implementing general printing rules, which can focus on certain document types, specific user groups, or avoiding more costly print settings like color or single-sided printing.
All organizations can benefit from rules based printing software. Think about all the times when documents have been printed multiple times, were printed in color when they could have been black and white, or print jobs that were just forgotten.
Print jobs are managed in a variety of ways: through print policy management, filters and restrictions, administrator alerts, and load balancing. By combining filter rules, administrators can improve printer workflows, minimize queue hogging, and avoid wasteful print jobs.
Advanced rules, like print scripting, make cost recovery easier and more transparent. Use job filtering and/or advanced scripting control to implement print policies and improve device utilization.
Adding rules based printing does more than save you money on printing. It boots productivity by eliminating backups and minimizing downtime.
