About Accurate Printer Monitor

Printer monitoring is indeed a lot of companies all over the world should invest in. But why is this so? Why is there an imminent need to monitor printing activity? Let us say that you operate a medium-sized enterprise and you have dozens of computers connected to three or four computer networks. With this many computers, your office would inevitably need a lot of working printers at hand, so many that keeping tabs as to printing activity would become fairly difficult it achieve. The task to monitor printers is not really hard if you have software to back you up. It is why you need to have print monitor software in your office.


Another great feature that comes with print monitoring software is that it points out the employees using the printers most often, as well as the number of pages they have been printing off the printers. Now, this goes without saying that there are employees who are just a little bit abusive when it comes to using office equipment and when it comes to printing, there really is no way of knowing who is using what printer for personal use. That is if you do not have the software. With the software, this is easily carried out because it keeps track of all documents printed as well as the employee who printed them respectively. These reports are then stored inside a built-in database that you can easily access to monitor abusive users.


Our printer monitor also comes with built-in notification capabilities. That is, in the case that anything remarkable is found in any of the printer's work that the program is currently monitoring, it could simply send off an email to the human administrator. It saves administrators a lot of tedious labor in looking through many printers and frees their time for more important and complex administration tasks.
