In order to ensure your photocopier is managed properly, Midshire advises that customers put Print Management Software on their photocopiers. This photocopier software not only reduces the cost of printing, but also offers increased visibility and control of printing to customers. There are three main print management software solutions recommended by Midshire – Callisto, PaperCut MF and Equitrac.
It gives Midshire accurate information on a machines toner levels and meter readings. Toner is then proactively re-ordered automatically when the bottle reaches just 25%, ensuring you always have a new bottle ready to insert when you run out. As Callisto can also take accurate meter readings, you know you are being billed for the correct number of copies, without having to manually log them. Both of these functions save Midshire customers valuable working time and eliminates effort on their part.
Two other pieces of photocopier software that come highly recommended by Midshire is PaperCut MF and Equitrac. Both are designed to help track user activity, running on a database in the background where user and tracking data is stored.
PaperCut MF is an easy to use print management software. It reduces company print waste by encouraging responsible behaviour, such as duplexing (double sided printing) as standard or deleting any jobs in the print queue if not printed after a set number of time. PaperCut MF is guaranteed to reduce your print spend by 15%*. One of our customers Gorvins Solicitors has over 100 employees utilising 10 Sharp photocopiers, they save £10,000 annually using PaperCut MF. PaperCut MF is ideal for schools and SMEs, that only need a certain amount of control.
For larger companies that want even more control over their fleet of photocopiers, Equitrac is the ideal print management software. Ideal for legal firms and larger companies, Equitrac offers greater document security, with encrypted jobs being stored on a server. In addition, Equitrac allows complex rules to be set up, so that users can be charged a set amount for more advanced print features such as booklet printing or stapling.
