Protection of our planet is a very important aspect of
Monitor's core values. For the future generations that are
relying on us to do the right thing, Monitor believe that we should
all be working together in a more efficient and sustainable
Monitor is fortunate to be in an industry which can
contribute so effectively to the reduction of toxic resources and
the over-exploitation of natural resources. Reducing the
production of all print resources is extremely beneficial both
globally and at an institutional level. On average Monitor's
print management solution can reduce the consumption of print
resources by 20%, and in some cases even more! This means
that your organisation is making a massive difference on reducing
the consumption of natural resources in the world.
Hints to reduce print costs include:
- Create strict print policies for users to abide by
- Ensure high volume printers are used for large documents and
smaller printers are used for small print jobs
- Ensure that an organisation's environmental policies are
clearly displayed to all users
- Reduce paper usage by scanning documents rather than
- Delete unwanted jobs rather than printing them and throwing
away the unwanted paper
- Recycle used toner rather than purchasing new ones
Customised Print Rules
Monitor's Print Management solution encourages users to change
their print habits, resulting in your organisation experiencing
visible savings as well as environmental policies being adhered to,
through a reduction of paper waste, toner use and on-going
maintenance of print devices throughout your organisation.
Monitor Print's powerful rule engine will allow your
organisation to create customised rules for users to adhere to,
such as default to black and white and double-sided printing, by
intelligently managing print queues.
to find out how Monitor Print can help your organisation reduce
print costs and enforce your environmental policies.
Use of high volume printers
Enforce users to redirect their print jobs to the most
appropriate print device. The Follow Me print application allows
your organisation to reduce costs, increase efficiency and security
as well as the ability to apply environmental policies. Using
Follow Me print, staff can redirect print jobs to a more
appropriate print device, such as large print jobs being redirected
to a high volume print device whereas smaller jobs can be released
to small desktop printers. Follow Me print also reduces the
possibility of confidential documents ending up in the wrong hands
with jobs not being sent to the print device until the user is
ready to collect the job.
Display your environmental messages to users
With Monitor's Print Client application, your organisation can
control its print and copy costs as well as enforcing environmental
policies. The Print Client application provides a 'Pop-Up' for each
user when they send a print job to the MFP. Your organisation has
the power to configure the Pop-Up with key environmental messages
or to enter departmental codes or cost codes for each print job for
budgeting or reporting purposes.
Scan rather than copy
Reduce the amount of paper that is used by photocopying through
encouraging your users to scan jobs to an email account, USB
storage device or a central storage location. By scanning documents
to a preferred source, users will have the power to send their
documents electronically to any relevant parties and will also be
able to securely save a copy of the document rather than relying on
a paper copy.

Secure Release - delete unwanted jobs
Monitor's Print Release software ensures your organisation can
apply its environmental policies as well as enhancing print
security. Using Print Release software, users printing confidential
documents can be guaranteed that the document will not end up in
the wrong hands. With your organisation using Print Release, your
users will be able to delete unwanted jobs which will reduce the
amount of paper waste through poor print management.
