    Enterprise Printing

    some may recall previous posts about what ppl have done to quell printing costs.

    after a meeting with our rm account manager we had been incontact with IOT and waiting to hear from another company or two concerning enterprise printing: cutting down on quant of printers and running management software on the servers, and follow-you printing.

    have any of you been down this route? what are your opinions?

    We run Safecom; it works. I've previously used Equitrac. That didn't do follow me printing (not sure if it could have done) and it also worked well.

    when this was implemented did you go from a high number of printers then reduce and centralise?

    Set up a generic postscript printer on a Windows Server 2003 machine for each course listed in your VLE. Have them redirect print jobs to PDF documents that you put in a folder corresponding to the name of the course. Assign appropriate printers to pupils via a login script. Now pupils can "print" their work straight to the VLE for marking.
