Office machines that waste money through the use of excess Paper and inkjet cartridges by higher quality printing settings can be tamed, it has been suggested.
IBM and Ricoh‘s InfoPrint Solutions joint venture has revealed a new office supplies product called Intelligent Print Control (IPC) that will help save firms money by automatically selecting the appropriate printer settings for each document, reports iTWire.
The product is also designed to assist office equipment users who have to waste time going through a number of windows to ensure that their printer supplies less ink or double-siding printing for a particular document, indicated Bruce McLennann, director of IPC distributor Print Associates (PA).
Any model of printer will work with IPC, which functions by assigning a printing profile for each office equipment user, he said.
Printing preferences are then stored and the product will recognise words such as draft or final in documents to ensure that the right settings are used, Mr McLennann added.
By ensuring the required use of inkjet cartridges and Paper, IPC will result in at least a 30 per cent reduction in the direct cost of printing for office equipment users, according to the Print Associates website.
