Print Manager Plus Wins Award for Best Print Management Software
Software Shelf International, Inc., an American and British software development and marketing company, announced that its flagship product, Print Manager Plus, has won the coveted Sunbelt Y2KNews Top Award for Print Management Software. The award is presented at Microsoft’s Tech.Ed 2004 for best print management software, best price, and best quality in the industry.
The Award was won as a result of voting from over 500,000 Y2K News subscribers consisting of Windows NT/2000/2003 Administrators, MIS Managers, MCPs, MCSEs and IT professionals around the world.
Print Manager Plus solves the problem of the hidden cost of printing in organizations. According to Datamation document costs consume up to 15 percent of a company’s revenues. Print Manager Plus reduces these costs.
Software Shelf CEO, Bill Feeley said, “Correct usage of Print Manager Plus can create more savings versus license cost than any other software in an organization. It certainly backs up and complements Hewlett-Packard’s new TPM (Total Print Management) campaign to reduce the hidden cost of printing in an organization.”
Print Manager Plus tracks, accounts, quotas and reports on what is printed or plotted, by who and where and enables an IT professional and managers to see how to control and reduce the costs of printing in an organization. It automates the cost reduction actions. It requires no extra training to operate by an average Windows IT Administrator.
Print Manager Plus is in thousands of schools and universities worldwide to control the waste of printing carried out by enthusiastic students.
Customers using Software Shelf Print Manager solutions include Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, British Department of Education, Siemens, Commerzbank, Germany, the Royal Air Force, Oxford and Cambridge Universities, Stanford, Yale, State University of New York, Kennedy Space Center, CNN, and over 10,000 companies and schools worldwide.
Print Manager Plus installs in seconds on a Windows Print Server. It handles printing from any operating system and ANY printer brand. It does not require use of foreign port monitors as do most alternative solutions because it’s “native” to the Windows operating systems. It looks and feels like it’s part of the operating system itself. It is licensed per server supporting all users and shared printers at no extra cost. It is a pure software solution with no hardware.
Its Consultant Version for printer company consultants and sales persons is used to design improved printer fleet hardware placement configurations that save companies money and increase efficiency.
Its client billing features enable engineering, architecture, law firms, and others to automatically bill printing and plotting costs to clients.
Tech support comes from Software Shelf in the U.S. and from its European offices located in England providing support in 12 languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Dutch, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Icelandic)
