    Printing Management Software

    Can anyone please advise on software to run to allow me to get better control of who can print where and the quantity of prints that they can do? Currently all run from the print manager, was wondering if there was any suggestions for 3rd party software.

    Thanks, Tony.

    Thanks, I will take a look at both of those and see what the Network Manager is happiest with.
    Many thanks, Tony.

    I use Print Manager Plus and it works well for us, the staff don't like it though but we just cannot carry on funding over 4K of printing a year, they don't get free photocopying so why should they get free printing?
