    Print Manager Plus - old version, but it does what we need. The new versions do a lot more.

    You need to do a forum search for Print Manager Plus, Papercut and PyKota... I'm an advocate of PyKota - check the wiki!

    Print Manager Plus here - couldn't do without it.

    Make sure you put realistic prices on the pages otherwise it doesn't sink in how expensive it is to print.

    There are several recent threads on these boards on the subject of management software and how it's used.

    Heads up here for Ranger Print Manager. Not too expensive, runs on your print server, no client install (just point a shortcut in startup to the client exe on your server). Also has a web based creditor for techies. Full auditing and history. PM me if you want to know more.

    If you have no money, try Papercut - at least we can now tell who is printing all the rubbish out (including somebody's husband's tax forms!!)

    I find it amazing that most of us are using older versions of Print Manager Plus! I was asked not long ago whether I wanted to upgrade and I asked what exactly does version 7.x (or PMP 2008) do that 6.x can't?

    I did take a look at the new version and for the money, it offered nothing worth the upgrade I'm afraid! If it ain't broke, don't fix it comes to mind.

    We used to run Ranger Print Management here but we got rid of this along with Ranger a couple of years ago.

    We're now using Papercut NG - fantastic product, all the features you could possibly ask for and very reasonably priced for education!


    We're also in the throws of making new ID cards for our staff with proximity chips in them, idea being to use them for door entry, cashless catering and photocopying.

    Once we've got the new ID cards out to staff we will be installing some proximity card readers onto the copiers and integrate staff photocopying into Papercut - all very exciting stuff!
