The free version of papercut is quite good for monitoring.
Anyone know of an Free print quoat software for windows,
looked at Pykopta but not impressed at having to pay to download free software.
We used the paid for version of papercut, it has paid for itself many times over.
It then makes me laugh when they moan about losing 1p of there credit because the paper jammed in the printer and its wasting there credit!
We use the paid for version of papercut for students quota, and staff are closely monitored.
During first year in this position we spent just short of £15K in toner I introduced papercut and it came down to just over £9K a year meaning a saving of almost £6K in a year!!!!!!!!!
Next step was to remove expensive USB printers and replace with more cost effective network ones within offices and gradually the printing cost is coming down!
Anther +1 for PaperCut Paid version .. it's brilliant, it helps reduce printing costs and manage printing, it helps stop the annoying papersize not found jams for random sized documents, it's great for monitoring printing and you can pretty much automate most of the processes for printing with it (including my favourite bit, printer has serious error, printer e-mails me, I'm there fixing the printer before the staff come with pitchforks and torches .. )
Another +1 for Papercut Paid version... we've only had it since November but, it's making waves already with the staff who cant believe the amount of wastage that printing causes.
I know the OP wanted free ones but IMHO papercut with their very generous licensing costs is a good choice!
THanks for the feed back
Still cant get hold of Pkota, wants me to login<
come across Papercut before , the school seam to want free, going to try the paper cut route
Papercut is fantastic worth the investment! and cheap for Educational use!
We find papercut very good. Just bare in mind you need to right support from upstairs to be able to bring in tough enough quotas.
We've made a big saving, but it could be much more but no one will give us the nod to place any restrictions on year 11s, 6th former and staff.
The bill for photocopier use came though, SMT nearily exploded when they saw it support form upstairs may not be a issue.
Is PaperCut compatible with RM CC3/4? At present we are on the trial with pcounter, but the win9x interface and the general use of the program is not that user friendly to my believe
