The PE Technikon is a Technical University and the George Campus is a satellite campus located 330 kilometres away from the Main Campus. We have approximately 1000 students. The situation in 2002 was that students made use of 4 after-hours computer labs and needed to print. The Student Council paid for the ink and the students provided their own paper.
This caused two major problems. The Student Council had a limited budget and because there was no control of the ink usage, some students received maximum benefits while others constantly found the printers to be out of ink. Also, because students provided their own paper, we found that students used all sorts of paper in the printer, believe it or not wrapping paper has been found jammed in the printers. The printers were constantly having to be serviced due to paper jams and other abuse.
I conducted a search on the Internet and came across PaperCut. With some creative accounting and the assistance of PaperCut management, I was able to purchase the Papercut quota system. I tested the system until December 2002 and then implemented PaperCut on our Windows network. The Main Server is located at our Saasveld site with a secondary server installed at our second site 15 kilometres away.
The system has now been running for six months and what a difference! Total costs so far are only 30% of what it was last year for paper and ink. Not one of the student printers has had to be serviced this year. I have seen that the students are becoming more responsible and economical in their printer use.
I would definitely recommend the PaperCut Quota system to any school or University. It is easy to use AND manage. Thanks to Papercut Biz for a great product.
