Print Management – Equitrac Express

“Intelligent Print Management for Education”

Equitrac Express® gives IT administrators the flexibility to let students, faculty and staff print what they need and when they need it, wherever they are located. At the same time, it helps to reduce total print output and costs, accurately allocate print costs, implement print quotas, and enable guest printing through pay-for-print.

Equitrac Express delivers organizational control and reduces IT complexities by removing dependencies on print servers, print drivers and complex print fleets that cause challenges in today’s changing environment.

It helps you regain control of campus-wide printing, while making printing convenient, secure and accessible for all users. And gain the flexibility to tailor your print environment according to the specific needs of your users and organization.

Campus Wide Print Management

Delivering print to multiple user types – students, staff, faculty and guests – creates a unique set of challenges for educational institutions. And the risks of overuse are high if print is not carefully managed.

Equitrac Express makes it easy to set up campus- wide policies for printing and enforce them – consistently and automatically – to promote responsible printing behavior and keep costs under control:

  • Set up page quotas for students and faculty
  • Use flexible pricing to give students a 
spending limit of free prints
  • Re-direct large jobs to high-volume devices or a campus print shop
  • Eliminate unnecessary printing by allowing users to delete jobs sent in error
  • Hold documents in a secure print queue until the user authenticates at the device of their choice via credentials or campus card
  • Enable chargeback to departments or specific funding sources (grants, etc.)
