The actual costs of printing on campus can vary widely – but it is expensive. PrinterOn is an
effective way to get the most value out of your printing systems and reduce User Help
expenses and wasted User Time.
Application - Libraries
High number of walk-ins asking for help setting up their
notebooks for printing.
CAT5 drops, 802.11 Wireless, and kiosk PCs need to coexist
Simplify printing. No need to install print drivers or hardware, or
learn technical details.
The “poor man’s” copy shop. Print from home or residence often
a requirement.
Application – Labs or Faculties
Trend is a move towards wireless.
More students with notebooks, often required for programs.
Desire to print from lab or nearby, then pick up documents.
Often require restrictions by course or department.
Application – Residences
Print Less! and environmental pressures are common.
Every student with an inkjet printer on their desk results in lots of
waste (cartridges and printers), a loss of living space, and an
electrical connection issue.
Centralized laser printers are less expensive for students, reduce
waste and room clutter.
PrinterOn can simplify setup and operation of printing for
hundreds or thousands of students each semester.
