    Printer Solution

    So we have two Kyocera FS-C2126MFP+ in our office. One to service each side of the office. I have added the printers to the employees PCs through the IP. The issue we ran into is that someone printed out 150 pages of empty Excel spread sheets. My question is what can I put in place to prevent this. I did not want to pursued searching for the culprit but I did want to prevent this from reoccurring. From the settings on the printer there is no way of setting a limit on a single print job.

    Please advise on what solution you guys have.

    Thank you

    You would need to use software like paper cut or a print management alternative. You would also need to add the printer via a share name.

    Paper cut allows you to restrict copies based on rules set. It also gives you the options to easily generate reports.. You would have your culprit in seconds..

    On the downside it's not free..

    Print management software is the way to go. Papercut, print manager plus, etc

    Papercut is expensive and you Los have to pay for an extra license for MFP's.

    We use print manager plus in school for all type of printers/MFP's and for a few hundred quid does the job!

    Yeah I figured that there would be some cost involved. Either way I will bring up the option to management and will see what they say. Thanks

    This is only half correct - you only have to buy the MF version if you want to embed the software onto the MFP's. If you want to use them as traditional printers then the NG version which isn't expensive will suffice.

    Papercut is a very good solution

    Yes we only use ng. Does everything I need it to..

    Unless you are using follow me printing you are ok..

    It's not overly expensive.. Can't remember the exact figure..

    There are others players but from experience and good old testing I love paper cut.

    Iv set it up to auto email heads of department with their spending etc. it's really educated staff to be more thoughtful too knowing big bro is watching.

    We have a managed print solution with a compared called arena, they have experts in paper cut and also they are a reseller of Kyocera kit. Worth giving them a call
