To manage your print environment effectively, it’s essential to truly understand your print environment. And that understanding can only come about through insight into print activity and printer usage as well as micro- and macro-level printing trends.
That’s why we developed PrinterLogic Insights, a reporting and monitoring feature for PrinterLogic SaaS customers who want to brighten the darkest corners of their print environment. It’s ideal for small to medium businesses (SMBs) that want to keep on top of their own corporate printing and cut costs. It’s also incredibly useful for managed print services providers that want to offer optimized printer support and better serve their SMB customers.
Just what does PrinterLogic Insights enable your SMB to do? Well, the answer is actually twofold.
First and foremost, PrinterLogic Insights provides you with valuable, comprehensive information on all kinds of print activity throughout your organization—things like printer issues, per-user page counts and recent print jobs. That gives you unprecedented visibility into your print environment.
The second aspect is what you gain from that unprecedented visibility. With robust, hard-to-capture data in hand, it now becomes actionable. You can be aware of print jobs that might contain confidential information, identify employees or departments with excessive printing habits and provide better printer support to your end users.
Here’s a small sample of what PrinterLogic Insights can do:
Those capabilities can help you make more informed decisions and streamline corporate printing on an ongoing basis.
For example, tracking print costs and copy activity can be used to reveal the “hidden” costs of your print environment. You can then tackle those costs through waste-reduction initiatives. Determining the total cost of printing (TCP) for your organization might also raise a timely debate on whether it makes sense to contract with a managed print services company.
With SNMP monitoring, on the other hand, IT admins and support staff can get out of the furious cycle of response mode. Instead they can be more proactive. If a printer sends an alert that it’s running low on toner, your internal IT department or your managed print services provider can perform the easy fix before it becomes a full-blown problem for end users. One automated warning is better than a dozen urgent calls to the help desk asking for printer support.
While PrinterLogic Insights is capable of generating reports based on any number of variables, there are a couple types that almost every organization finds helpful.
This short video showcases some of the features and possibilities of PrinterLogic Insights.
PrinterLogic Insights leverages the same technology as the built-in print auditing and reporting feature in our full-featured printing platform. That’s what the Orthopedic Institute of New Jersey used to make more informed business decisions—like being more intentional in its consumables usage and purchasing (read the case study here). And because it’s based on the same foundation as our popular serverless printing infrastructure, PrinterLogic Insights doesn’t require additional infrastructure.
Best of all, it doesn’t cost anything to gain access to this information and guidance. PrinterLogic Insights supports unlimited users and is completely free of charge for up to 10 networked printers. Larger organizations and managed print services providers can easily upgrade for additional printer support if necessary.
Rolling it out is super quick too. Signing up only takes seconds. And once you’ve deployed the software client to the workstations you want to include, you can start accessing and leveraging your vital corporate printing data within a matter of minutes.
We deliver a highly available Serverless Printing Infrastructure using a centrally managed Direct IP printing platform. If you want to empower end users with mobile printing, secure release printing, and many advanced features, we’d love to show you how.
