Every possible feature you require to make your print management done absolutely perfect.
PrintLimit Print Tracking can manage all your printer activities, print quotas, print counter and print logs from a single point where all jobs are controlled.
It can resume, pause, cancel, restart jobs on different printers at one time. Unclaimed holding job can also be automatically deleted if it stays in the queue
too long, so other jobs can move on and print. The administrator can view all jobs, add/remove a user or update user account information (print quota, PIN,
group, user status) through Windows or a web browser. The users can view and export their printing history, check the amount of money in their printing accounts
or change their pin through a web browser.
PrintLimit Print Tracking can centrally track and count all types of printing with or without the print server.
1. The printers and plotters on Windows print server and shared (Users send the jobs to the shared printer on the print server)
2. The printers and plotters connected to the network directly via the IP address (Users send the jobs to the printer directly via the IP address of the printer)
3. The printers and plotters connected to the workstations locally via USB or LPT cables
4. The printers and plotters connected to the print-server device (e.g., HP JetDirect)
PrintLimit Print Tracking keeps track of account quotas (number of pages allocated to users). When print quotas are exceeded, jobs are paused or automatically canceled. Users/Groups can be imported from Windows Active Directory or from a CSV file. The users can also be added to the database automatically when they print first time . Users can check their remaining balance/quotas and change PIN from their workstations.
PrintLimit Print Tracking allows you to generate 100 usage reports including 64 default reports and 36 customized reports in any language that can
be exported to PDF, Word, Excel and rich text formats, sent by email automatically. The reports are designed for your print cost analysis and client billing.
The software provides the user with pop-up notification displaying job related information, including document name, printer name, the total number of pages, cost and user account balance. The authentication agent allows for the prompting of user ID and the PIN code before printing is allowed. Pop-ups are supported on Windows, Mac, or Linux workstations. Windows Active Directory can also be used to authenticate a user using the user's domain user ID and password. The notification and authentication popup supports 25 languages and we can add any language as you request.
Printing is restricted if the job exceeds the maximum allowable print limit specified for a printer or user. Further restrictions can be set by user, computer, document title (e.g., restricted words), color, job size, day/time. Once they hit the restrictions, Print Job Trakcer will immediately pause or cancel their jobs automatically.
The software includes monitoring of all print servers and printers from a single location. The printer monitor sends email alerts automatically when printer has errors, toner low, out of paper and job have remained in the queue for longer than the pre-defined allowable wait time.
The software can save and archive a copy of all printed documents for viewing.
Just a few of the many features included, and proved fruitful for many businesses and educational facilities to understand manage their printing costs, and save unwanted costs.
