Xerox unveils software tool for printers
Dubai, July 13, 2010
Xerox has unveiled a new software tool for its ColorQube 9200 Series multifunction printers (MFP) that prompts office workers on ways to save money and print greener.
The web-based software called Xerox Print Advisor uses on-screen prompts to alert users to simple actions they can take to print smarter. For example, if a user chooses to print a multiple page document on one side only, an on-screen message appears recommending two-sided printing.
Free to ColorQube 9200 Series customers, Print Advisor also collects data on all print jobs, such as how many pages each user prints daily, providing valuable information to the IT department. A variety of detailed reports help office workers and IT administrators make more informed and responsible print decisions.
For IT managers looking for enterprise-wide reports and usage data, Xerox Print Advisor Premium will be available for a fee. The premium version extends the benefits beyond ColorQube 9200 Series users and provides detailed data and reporting for all networked printers and MFPs as well as those directly connected to users’ PCs.
Administrators also can create custom end-user prompts to deliver additional information relevant to their organisations.
“Xerox’s Print Advisor is a well thought-out application that will promote awareness and educate users on the impact of their personal printing,” said Jon Reardon, group director, Office Document Technologies, InfoTrends. “It’s a powerful tool to drive responsible printing behavior.”
Using Xerox’s cartridge-free solid ink technology, the ColorQube 9200 Series cuts the cost of colour prints by up to 62 per cent and generates 90 per cent less supplies waste compared to traditional colour laser MFPs.-TradeArabia News Service
