    Students aren't in right now, so I'm kinda interested to see how the stats change
    just a bit, this is 2 schools though! and has been running since jan 2013

    the thing what really really got ours in line was automating summary reports to the SLT so they have something to look at, we don't give them an allowance though - but the copiers have their costs set at the approx cost of the print/paper which then gives an accurate cost on the summaries for the SLT to easily have a cost to read against everyones name - it didn't make me popular but then again neither did forcing them to print release everything with an rfid tag in their ID cards :v - i had the same backlash about that initially but they learned to deal with it and have since learned it means you don't have to wait in a queue to get your stuff because someone else beat you to pressing print with 500 pages of nothing.

    Im about ready to give them Google Cloud Print, got it up and running this morning!

    when benefits do you see from google cloud print?

    The paper cut web print is a bit iffy... we can't get pdf to work using sandbox. Office files work fine, anything with using adobe reader errors out, removed adobe reader and tried using just the default and still nothing.

    All our email and stuff is on GoogleApps so its easy enough to just turn on and let them have it - its more a convenience thing to be honest - it will allow them to prep at home and print everything ready to be released in the morning when they get to work. using https://tools.google.com/dlpage/cloudprintdriver you can print from any windows program and if you log into chrome it will pickup your printers for anything in browser

    I Have explained it is provided as is and to the best of my ability it will work, but I'm not supporting it... So if you come in and your prep is gone not my problem! i only have paper cut 13.5(upgrade support ran out in jan) and am trying to find out how i go about renewing it from my provider but its been a pain getting ahold of my account manager. so the version i have only just got cloud print so I'm sure there are gonna be some problems.

    I have sent a few teachers home with 'Homework' to test it out and we will see what happens

    For some reason we still fax here, and that has been our final issue to resolve.

    If you're moving over from a largely unrestricted print environment then you need to make sure changes in terms of quotas, restrictions, budgeting are backed by SLT.

    We've had it here for three years and print usage continues to rise purely because any attempt to control it results in whinges and subsequently a bottle job from senior management.

    We don't really have that many printers - we moved to a new print server this year, but retain the data in papercut for the old print server - it sees each printer as two, one for each server.

    Neat little tool, DocMon from TopAccess toshiba...

    Gives users notifications of Fax transmissions and failures and other notes (toner / paper low etc). We are thinking of setting it up on a monitoring stations for the help desk so that can see if labs need certain things.
