There’s no denying it: Unclaimed printouts sitting on your output devices are a security issue and a tremendous waste of money. Confidential documents piling up in your office print centers and copy rooms can be easily misplaced or land in the wrong hands.
Research indicates that organizations spend anywhere from 1% to 6% of their annual revenues on office copying and printing. Even if your organization lands at the low end of that range, that's a significant amount.
Lexmark Print Management improves the efficiency of your output environment by helping to reduce unnecessary printing. This solution delivers secure access control and robust usage reporting, and at the same time it provides greater mobility and productivity for your users.
Lexmark Print Management lets users send print jobs from anywhere, including their desktop, tablet or smartphone, and then release the jobs for printing whenever and wherever they are ready. This means confidential information stays protected, and print jobs don't pile up endlessly on office printers.
All documents are held in the print queue until their owners release them. The queue can be hosted on-premises or in the cloud for additional features and benefits.
Documents can be released at any enabled device, whether the device is located across the room, in another building or in another country. To release their documents, users simply swipe their ID card or enter their credentials at the device and select the documents they need to print.
Lexmark Print Management provides the information enterprises need to more effectively manage their print and imaging infrastructure. Powerful tracking and accounting tools let you monitor every print, copy and scan transaction by every user on every device across your output environment. This robust data collection, combined with a variety of reporting options, delivers the insight you need to proactively manage your network printing and imaging environment. For example, to curb waste and promote responsible use, Lexmark Print Management makes it easy to implement print quotas for individual users or user groups, or to restrict access to certain features such as copy, scan or fax.
