Print monitoring and metering can save millions of dollars for a corporation in hardware, paper, and wasted time. Print Monitoring gives management an unprecedented power for the first time to analyze, when a printer is under- or over-utilized.
SurveilStar is an advanced printer usage monitoring product allowing you to control the efficiency of your company's printer usage. With this powerful printer activity monitor you can easily monitor and audit your printers and find out which documents are printed on each of the selected printers, which employees use printers most often, the number of pages printed, on which printer and when the document was printed, etc.
Most office managers don't have an understanding of how many pages each employee is printing in a year or in a week. What time of the day the printer is used the most or what time of the day the printer is idle. Since management does not have the critical information of how many pages are being printed and who does the most printing, offices end up with over capacity. Office equipment suppliers routinely "over-sell" expensive high-end printers to their customers.
With SurveilStar Printer Activity Monitor, one can quickly and precisely assess an office need and calculate the printer hardware needed for the office. Identifying printing habits of individuals or the office and allocating resources accordingly can reduce paper waste by eliminating reprints and identifying faulty devices. A defective printer with faulty paper feed can cost a lot for an office in wasted time and wasted paper because of frequent paper jams resulting in reprinting.
SurveilStar is an outstanding Printer Activity Monitor software which records every details of printing activities including applications, time, pages, captions, users, computers, print tasks, and many more.
