Back to School - Use of Software Shelf’s Print Management Software Means Real Savings For Schools

Award-winning software allows schools and colleges to reduce their printing by 50% or more

School printing; a major drain on school finances unless tightly

Clearwater, Florida and London, United Kingdom: Print Management Software firm Software Shelf International, Inc. announced today, at the beginning of the new academic year, a reminder to schools, colleges and universities that its print monitoring and limiting software offers a workable way for them to substantially reduce their operating costs. In these times of looming recession and financial instability, tight cost control is the key to the future of any organization. Print Manager Plus 2008 Standard Academic Edition provides a practical and environmentally-friendly way for educational establishments of all kinds to do just that.

The award-winning software allows secondary schools, K12 schools, universities, colleges and non-profit organizations to track, control, quota and restrict student and staff printing across the network. Case studies have shown that this software can reduce printing by 50% or more.

William Feeley, Software Shelf CEO

“It’s really easy to use and is 100% software based, so no additional hardware is needed at all,” says Software Shelf CEO, William Feeley. “It runs on Windows Server or Workstation NT/2000/XP/2008 and can track printing from any operating system, so any school could install this software tomorrow and start reducing its paper and ink costs immediately.”

The benefit the software provides schools and colleges is best expressed by its customers themselves:

“We couldn’t afford technology upgrades for our school. After installing Print Manager Plus we cut our printing costs in half - from £24,000 to around £12,000 and are now able to afford upgrades.” — Kevin Bowker, The King’s Academy, Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, UK.

“Print Manager Plus gave us the ability to make students and teachers accountable for what they print and how much. Users are now pausing before they print and with the ability to set limits to print jobs, the 100-page books that were being sent are a thing of the past. Print Manager Plus is a great product for taking back control over spiraling print costs and saving the environment from wasteful printing.” — Administrator, Wesley Chapel High School, Florida.

The product is also very ‘green’ in that it reduces paper wastage, thereby saving trees, energy (in the production of paper and its distribution) and water; the manufacturing of paper is a very thirsty process. Based of average paper savings per client and the total number of its clients worldwide, it was recently calculated that Print Manager Plus is responsible for saving 200,000 trees globally every month!
