Introduction

Accurate Printer Monitor supplies four cut down versions called Accurate Printer Monitor Enterprise and Corporate. These versions omit some of the advanced features found in the corporate edition and is ideal for users who either want a low cost solution or are not interested in more advanced features.

This page lists the principal features of Accurate Printer Monitor and identifies those features that are not available in each version.

Accurate Printer Monitor Enterprise sells for 30% of the cost of the Corporate version. Users can upgrade to the Corporate version at any time, simply by paying the difference in price between the versions. The actual software is identical, since the software activation key is used to configure all editions. A code can be sent by email that allows the user to upgrade the software.
