Printer control firm, Software Shelf International (SSI), wants those companies that still haven’t fully embraced the green movement, yet are looking for the best way to be part of it, to know that a solution is at hand.

Print Manager Plus, the print management tool developed by international company, Software Shelf, regulates and restricts printing across a network, thereby making enormous savings in printer paper and ink cartridges.

“As a consequence, the benefits extend far into the environment,” says Danny Byrnes, SSI director based in the company’s Clearwater head office. “Reducing the amount of paper your company gets through every month is a great way to do something positive about global warming because it reduces energy consumption at every stage – from paper manufacturing, to transport, and finally to the energy actually consumed by your printers.

“Where forests are not managed properly, the demand for paper can lead to deforestation – so there’s another obvious benefit. Taking all of our customers into account, we recently estimated that our Print Manager Plus software saves planet Earth about 150,000 trees every month.

“In addition, the paper manufacturing industry is a heavy consumer of water, so here’s another environmental area where our print accounting software is helping.”

It goes without saying that because Print Manager Plus saves printer ink, printer paper, electricity, and causes less wear and tear on the company’s printers – it pays for itself very rapidly.

To make an even bigger positive impact on the environment, SSI strongly recommends that companies also implement paper recycling schemes within their offices.
