Print Manager Plus Is Considered a Vital Necessity by its Clients in this Time of Looming Economic Recession

Over 78% of survey respondents give ‘controlling costs’ as the primary reason for using Print Manager Plus

Clearwater, Florida and London, UK -- Software Shelf International, Inc recently conducted a survey among its clients worldwide. The results clearly show that their primary reason for using the product is to control and so reduce both the direct and indirect running costs of printing within their organizations, namely: paper, ink (toner), printer maintenance and electricity.

Other reasons given for using Print Manager Plus in the survey were: its advanced reporting capabilities (it comes with over 130 detailed reports and analysis graphs that allow you to see who is printing, what they are printing and the cost of that printing); its ease of use (it is just like a natural extension of the operating system itself and is completely transparent to the user, needing no additional hardware); and its positive impact upon the environment. Software Shelf recently announced that the combined effect of its international educational customer base alone saves over 100,000 trees a month. In addition, less printing means less electricity consumed which, in turn, means reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

“What with current economic forecasts, if ever there was a time to improve the bottom line to aid corporate survival, it is now,” says Danny Byrnes, Vice President, Software Shelf International. “As our survey results show, our clients have recognized that Print Manager Plus makes a valuable contribution towards the survival of their organizations. Companies who have not yet embraced the power of PMP but who are starting to feel the pinch might want to look of this amazing software solution as a way of securing their own financial stability.”

Besides the important printing data that can be obtained, PMP allows Administrators to fully control printing by being able to implement Quotas and Restrictions on Users, Groups, Organizational Units, and Printers. The powerful restrictions vary from color usage, time usage, limiting pages and copies per print job, to scheduling and implementing printer usage. These controlling limits allow organizations to actually cut wasteful printing hence saving time, money, and resources.

Two noteworthy comments made by respondents of the survey that so effectively sum up what Print Manager Plus 2008 is and does were: “Print Manager Plus is a complete print management solution” and “Print Manager Plus provides functionality that is lacking in our operating system.”
