Overview

About Output Manager

The Output Manager allows the administrator to manage every user’s print, copy and scan jobs, ensuring complete security and privacy whilst reducing costs and minimising the impact on the environment.

With Output Manager you have the complete visibility of printing spend allowing you to adapt document processes to prevent waste. Cutting-edge technology means being able to stop colour printing by default and end uncollected documents to save paper.

Through detailed reports, Output Manager provides Management Information detailing printer use on a departmental or individual basis and enables automatic payments, so you can enjoy the time and money saved by automating and streamlining business processes.

Increased security and privacy by hiding your documents from prying eyes.

The Pull-Printing function ensures security in a range of ways; from deleting pending printouts which have been forgotten to requiring a PIN code, password or card to authenticate print jobs, scans and copies, your documents will never fall into the wrong hands.

When you can see exactly who is printing what, MFP users become more conscientious and subsequently less wasteful.

SENDYS Explorer’s fleet overview offers detailed usage statistics per user or per department, with in-depth reports allowing you to see immediately where wasteful printing occurs and alerts notifying you of device issues such as paper jams.

Features

  • Create intelligent rules to limit user behavior and enforce sensible printing policies
  • Use pre-built filters to fix simple problems like encouraging double-sided printing or creating your own custom advanced logic and apply for different objects (users, groups, printers, queues, roles)
  • Control Document Output by matching Job Name (Application) or by containing “xyz”
  • User Restrictions applicable per user or group
  • Reduce costs enforcing money-saving policies e.g. ONLY mono printing, cancelling unauthorised print-outs
  • Automatic colour to mono (or colour to gray scale) job conversion when a user has restrictions (conversion occurs as soon as the job arrives at the print server)
  • Pull-Printing: Changing document printing options when released at MFP panel - user will be able to select colour/mono and simplex/duplex > Section - on-demand printing features
  • DIRECT printing but limiting number of pages, above a threshold, print job is diverted to the pull-printing spooler
  • Control document output by matching Job Name (application) and/or certain characters or phrases
  • Enforce a limit on the number of pages (print/copy, colour/mono) allowed to be printed per day, week, month or year
  • Remotely cancel unauthorised print-outs
  • Automatically convert colour jobs to mono for users with restricted profiles

printpolicies

With pre-built filters and customisable rules, reducing print costs is easy and requires no knowledge of coding or scripting. Simply encouraging double-sided printing and making users responsible for their own print choices can minimise waste; if a job from a user matches a rule, then it automatically notifies the user about the restrictions.

Being able to tell users how much printouts costs, seeing who is printing in colour and sending uncollected documents adds accountability to the print process, whilst reducing print costs and paper wastage.

Features

  • The Output Management application can control and restrict usage by allocating a quota (number of mono/colour pages) or allowance (a credit. The quota specifications can be :

    • Department Quota
    • User Quota
    • Device Quota
    • Shared Quota
  • For example, a user might be allocated €10.00 a month, as required by schools, academies and universities
  • Pay per print, copy, and scan and set up different prices for prints according to user or type of job (such as colour or B&W)
  • Total pages (print/copy) (colour/B&W) quota renew per day/week/month/year)
  • Alternatively, you can pay per print, copy and scan. Set up different prices for prints according to user or type of job (such as colour or mono prints)
  • Quota Types(Volume / Value / Color)
  • Alert Percent
  • Quota Priority

quotas

Quota Management per user and/or per group can control and restrict user and/or department printer usage by allocating a quota (e.g. a number of mono/colour print/copy pages) or an allowance (a credit).

For example, a user might be allocated €10.00 a month, as required by schools, academies and universities.

Credit and billing capabilities means SENDYS Explorer also allows for credit accounts to be recharged by users via mobile, or automatically topped-up, and the Payment System is easily integrated with existing credit systems, minimising both expenses and hassle.
