Save Paper

How Much Paper Are You Using?

That sounds like an easy question, but many organizations simply have no idea of the volume of paper used for printing. If you do know, do you know where it goes? PaperCut can arm you with information not just about overall printing volumes, but volume by printer, group/department, user and many other factors. So next time the question is asked, "where does all the money we spend on printing go?", the answer is a few clicks away.

How Much Paper Can You Save?

There are many ways to implement PaperCut, so the amount saved will depend on which features and strategy you choose to implement. The following table gives an indication of the typical amount of paper saved by implementing each strategy.

Strategy Typical Paper Savings
Letting users know their printing is being tracked
Often this is enough to prevent the kind of printing users know they shouldn't be doing. E.g. perhaps that sporting club newsletter will be printed at home from now on...
Filters, restrictions, and routing
Implement print policy rules: Stop mistakes like printing a 100 page document instead of the 1 interesting page. Enforce double sided printing. Warn users when they print emails in color. Route large jobs to most cost effective devices.

Print quotas/charging
Impose reasonable limits on user printing, e.g. $5 per week per user. This is a very popular strategy in education environments.
