Reliable Print Activity & Cost Data

Without the right technology in place, it can be nearly impossible to track the expenses related to printer fleet activity. When you can't tell exactly how much you spend, your printing costs can devour more and more of your budget.

FollowMe Printing allows you to track activity on your copiers and printers with absolute accuracy. You can see how much your printing costs in terms of dollars and cents as well as environmental impact.

Reduced Print Time & Expenses

Once you get precise information on your printer usage, you can start taking steps to rein in wasteful practices:

  • You can set up quotas for individual users, devices or departments
  • You can establish workflows for specific business processes
  • You can route print jobs to devices that can handle the workload best

You'll be able to make your processes more efficient and cost-effective. You can also gain opportunities to eliminate redundant devices and manage your carbon footprint better.
