This software tool will help keep track of all prints done in a network.
Consumables used by a printer over its lifetime is a large part of the total cost of ownership. This is due to the fact that the print cartridges and/or toners are expensive. The amount of paper used also could be significant if not controlled. If you have to keep things under check, you have to keep track of who’s using what resources. HSLAB Print Logger logs and limits all printing activity on network print servers. The software monitors a set of print job parameters and records it into a XML database. It collects the information about sizes of printing on printers and records it to the XML database. You could then get analysis done and compile reports about printing activity. It lets users limit use of printers by employees, and receive detailed information about all print jobs. This tool works as a native Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista service. It lets users export reports. You are able to view real-time statistics in HTML format from an embedded HTTP server.
As printing is done by individual users on the LAN this tool will inspect sizes of printing according to the defined quotas and prohibit printing as necessary if quotas are exceeded. This option can be switched off, if needed. The collection of the information and printing job control is organized in three areas. Collect information on selected printers, information on printing jobs by specific users and printing jobs from a selected computer are the ways you can collect this information. The interface is quite intuitive and simple to use. This is a very good product and is a good option. Go ahead and try it out in your exact work settings.
