    Equitrac - Printing

    Does anyone on here use Equitrac, we are looking to go to a managed print solution at work and this piece of software looks like what we will be using but there is no free download trial we can get yet, still waiting for someone to get back to us.

    We wouldn't mind having a gander at the software if possible.

    I have used it but not for 2 years so it could have changed since then. It worked well for us. It integrates with AD (we had it configured so you logged on at copiers using AD credentials) and the company didn't throw up their hands in horror when we not only read stuff from the SQL database but wrote to it as well.

    Googling for Equitrac trial software gives loads of hits so you should be able to find one (eg - Equitrac That's Australian but I think Kyocera UK also supply it) I do remember getting a trial version before we bought it.

    Must be a common thing with photocopier companies as Ricoh use equitrac on the copiers they do as well - Equitrac express ( for education ), office and professional

    It should be possible to get a trial version - we have one at the moment for testing (to work with Ricoh kit in the main)

    I've emailed for a trial version, just waiting for our contact to get back to us.

    We are looking to have various MFPs around and users been able to swipe cards and get their jobs, which I am told we can do.

    Srochford, what did you think to the software, it is friendly to use and is it powerful in what it can do?

    It was pretty good but this is at least one version ago (not sure of version numbers but I think we had version 3; version 4 was just coming out 2 years ago; don't know what version there is now)

    Cheers for that Steve, hopefully there will be an email in my inbox from yesterday when I get in today with a trial. Looks impressive and lots of the companies are going on about it, just want to have a play now!

    We had an online demo of this and it did look simple to use. Unfortuantly the amount it was going to cost was much more than it would save us over the year.

    Just out of interest who are you using for your managed print solution?
