    Print manager plus 6

    Does any body use this latest version of print manager and if they do what do they think of it?

    i'm just trailing it at the moment but already i can see that it could save us money.
    also what prices do any of you estimate per black page printed and colour page printed :?:

    many thanks

    Re: Print manager plus 6

    Just started using it - and already got ICT on my back about it - something to do with DiDA requiring kids to print out 40 questionnaires!

    Why can't they just make up 40 results? as far as i can see its only asking them to "Survey 40 people" no where does it say "print out 40..."

    But Head of ICT insisting they have to

    I didn't like Print Manager Plus when I had it, I use Papercut instead, which is pretty cheap.

    We switched from pcounter to PMP and its far better.

    We charge £1 per page as we do not recharge departments and it's easier to work out quota's.

    Years 7 & 8 - - - - 4 pages per day
    yr 9 - - - -- 8 Pages per day
    yr 10 ------ 16 pages per day
    yr 11 ------- 32 pages per day.

    1. There is a magic machine called a photocopier!!! Wondrous technology.

    2. Create the questionnaire online and have it filled in online! Why have computers and not use them? Otherwise they might as well write questionnaires by hand and photocopy!

    With PMP does it still take forever to load the user list?

    Cant say that we have noticed any delays with any aspects of PMP. User list, printer lists, and group all load and refresh swiftly, even reports are generated speedily

    We have it running on a P4 2.8, 2gig ram , windows server 2003, which is running as a dedicated print server

    Ah right. Might have been the old 1Ghz Pentium with 512Mb RAM, Windows 2000 and old PMP that was the problem then lol.

    @Gatt: DiDA is a course that is designed to be done on the computer! The kids have to create an e-portfolio and don't hand in hard copies of their work!

    I use PMP and it's great. We actually charge the kids for what they print - giving them £2 of credit at the start of the year (sufficient for 200 pages of mono laser printing!).

    You could always charge the ICT department for the printing

    PMP6 is great and saves a lot of time and money. I have it installed on 2000 Server and it detects all users/groups you have in AD, so you can specify credit levels on a per user or per group basis which is handy!

    You can also schedule credit to be topped up or reset so users don't run out! My users credit gets reset on the first day of each month at 7am.
