Equitrac’s intelligent printing software makes printing work the way you want it to: simply, securely and with maximum savings at every step. This continues to thrive as the issue of print output costs is just as relevant today as ever before.
In 2003 Capital formed a partnership with Equitrac. We know that one click is all that is needed for any print job and for any printer. There are no worries about print servers, compatible print drivers or whether the printer is ready. The software provides complete accountability to better control costs and security.
These all massively reduce the burden on IT – and corporate budgets. And all of which makes Equitrac the world’s most popular print management software for small and large organisations. More than 10,000 clients rely on Equitrac for their award-winning print management solution.
Equitrac intelligent printing gives you:
Complete control: access to all device functionality is controlled through Equitrac. Users are only able to copy, print or scan once they have been authenticated. Use of all the device functions are reported on by department, use and job. The software can also give an accurate cost for your copy and print output. Statistics show that the combined effect of enforcing rules and deploying “Follow You” or “Pull” printing is in the region of 15% to 20%.
User authentication: this is done via the card reader on the multifunctional devices (MFDs), or by username and password. The intuitive interface utilises the MFD’s touch screen. It’s the same on every device – regardless of model – providing a consistent experience to end users.
Rules and routing: can be applied so that print jobs are sent to the most suitable, most economic device. For example, a rule can be configured to route documents of more than five pages from a desktop printed to a MFD. Another commonly used rule forces emails to be printed in mono and duplex, regardless of the user-selected options. Other rules can be created to follow your specific needs.
“Follow You” or “Pull”: users print to a virtual printer. Then they authenticate at any MFD or printer of their choice to release their documents. This feature overcomes any confidentiality concerns. It also eliminates waste, as there should be no documents lying unclaimed at the printer of MFD.
Cost preview: once authenticated, users will see a list of all submitted print jobs. These can be released in any order. Users will see the total cost of, and breakdown of, jobs to be released. Users can choose to print in mono rather than colour even though the print job has already been sent.
