Leading print management software company, Software Shelf, has been granted Hewlett-Packard's prestigious 'Catch the Wave- Outstanding Partner of the Year Award at the Worldwide HP Imaging and Printer Group Solutions Partner Conference in Atlanta, Georgia for its flagship print accounting software, Print Manager Plus.

This award further establishes Print Manager Plus as the standard print management software for use with Microsoft Windows because the product is: seamless, intuitive, very easy to use, requires no training, can be installed in minutes across an entire network and supports all printer brands. It is also priced at a cost affordable to almost any organization of any size i.e. a fraction of the cost of other print management solutions on the market.

Danny Byrnes, Vice-president of Software Shelf, EMEA stated, “We are very proud to be presented with this award! It shows not only that the world’s largest information technology corporation has recognized Print Manager Plus for what it is – a highly efficient and cost-effective way of controlling an organization’s printing, thus dramatically reducing its printing costs – but also that HP really cares about helping companies and schools save money on toner and paper.

“Up to now, only a fraction of companies with printing networks were able to save money on printing without Print Manager Plus and then, only able to do so usually with complex, expensive software or hardware-combined solutions that normally required service contracts to maintain. The cost of these high end “solutions” has been prohibitive to around 90 percent of the business and academic sectors. Thus the vast majority of organizations have had no effective tool to control the ever-increasing cost of printing.

“Print Manager Plus enables any organization of any size (and even one with a very tight budget) to have a truly affordable, easy to use, high quality tool that will save them substantial amounts of money in their printing costs – namely: electricity, printer wear and tear, and toner and paper consumption.”

Print Manager Plus is used in the business and education sectors to account for, track, and reduce toner and paper costs and to bill-back those costs to customers. It is fast becoming the standard for any Windows network administrator wishing to control and manage a printing enterprise. It is not only a pure software solution, it is also the only such product on the market “native” to the Windows operating system, seamlessly integrated with Active Directory and operating as an extension of Windows.

Software Shelf was established in 1994 in Silicon Valley by William Feeley. Its flagship product Print Manager Plus is used by thousands of companies, schools and government offices worldwide, including: Yale University, Los Angeles Unified School District, Harvard University, Oxford University, Morgan Stanley, British Library, University of California, Bank of England, NATO, CNN, Commerzbank, European Transaction Bank, National Bank of Kuwait, Hyatt Hotels and Microsoft.

Software Shelf provides free tech support (in 13 languages) from its offices in the US and UK and from its 153 partners and resellers in 62 countries.
