What is print management and why would you need it?

Print management is a software system designed for the effective management and optimization of print devices and related processes. It is useful in the management of the volume and nature of print materials. It also provides options for user authentication for accessing printers and other document print services. It controls the print queues and provides secure methods of printing.

Managing costs and reducing waste are two of the challenges businesses face today. One of the most effective ways to reduce costs and improve the productivity of network printing is with PaperCut MF.
