Software Shelf® Print Manager Plus Supports Windows Vista. PMP Reduces Printing Waste up to 75% Across the Oldest to the Newest Windows Networks Supporting Every Printer on the Market
San Francisco, California - London, England
07 February 2007
Software Shelf today announces that its Print Manager Plus® print accounting and print management software now fully supports Windows Vista. PMP runs on any Windows print server or workstation and tracks printing from all printers on the market and from any operating system reducing enterprise printing waste by up to 75%.

PMP has been deemed Microsoft Solution of the Month for the Public Sector for February 2007 and is currently featured on 24 Microsoft national websites of various countries.

With Support for Windows Vista, any enterprise can now get all the advantages and cost savings from reducing printing waste that PMP offers. According to Gartner, Printing costs are 1 to 3 percent of the average organization’s gross revenue.

Research released last week by London’s Centre for Economic Business Research Ltd. pointed out that failure to manage business printing wastes £1 billion ($2 billion) every year among UK organizations. The worst sectors are education and public administration, which waste around £225 million ($500 million) a year minimally in the UK alone. Print Manager Plus reduces such costs by up to 75%.

Other studies show the average school saves enough in five months using Print Manager Plus to pay for a school upgrading their school’s Windows operating system.

HP and Epson feature PMP on their websites as the solution to not only track, audit and manage printing usage by each user, group or the enterprise, but as a tool for service companies to bill-back clients for printing. PMP is being used as an income generator in service companies who can automatically use it to up-charge customers for printing anything from their business documents to engineering or architectural plots."

It’s supported by resellers worldwide and Software Shelf offices in the US and UK with support provided in 13 European languages.

Software Shelf and Print Manager Plus are trademarks owned by Software Shelf worldwide.
