Software Shelf today announced the release of new Print Manager Plus® 6.0 Client Billing with Authentication to account for and eliminate printing waste among Real Estate and Estate Agent companies and personnel. This new, pure software solution includes advanced technology that is unprecedented in the printer hardware and software industries. Versions include licensing and pricing matrix for Real Estate Small Office/Home Office, Small Business and Enterprise with pricing starting at $99.00 for Real Estate professionals.

The product uses a workstation (Win NT/2000/XP) based Authentication Module, which runs in the background on the user’s workstation. Whenever the user prints the print job is paused on the print server's printer queue. The user then receives a pop-up message with the full information of the print job and instructions on how to authenticate the print job. This forces users and/or clients to enter their password to print and automatically charges or bills them or their account code for the print job or to simply make users look at what they are printing before they print.
