Facing budget cuts and a demand for more environmentally responsible campuses, educational institutions must find ways to print more cost efficiently and encourage responsible behavior by faculty and administrative staff.
Canon technology offers educators a range of solutions to encourage and enforce more conscientious print usage.
Need to store and print commonly-used assignments and answer sheets? You can now save space by keeping them in your device's Advanced Box storage space and printing them whenever you need them. You can also use a single Workflow Composer button to create the right number of two sided copies or printouts for your class and collate and staple them too.
If you're trying to cut costs, you can create Quick Menu buttons that direct faculty and staff to less expensive options. For example, you can create a single button that prints out the right number of two-sided copies for a class.
Canon provides a number of ways to ensure that faculty and staff print responsibly. For example, whenever a teacher or other user logs in at a device, imageRUNNER ADVANCE Tracker can display environmentally friendly messages or usage statistics that tell them how much color and paper they've been using. This allows you to influence behavior positively, ensuring that everyone prints only as much as they need.
uniFLOW Output Manager enables you to gain control over all print usage, even across a large campus or school district. Solutions like this enable you to track usage and adjust device and network print settings accordingly. You can limit access to more costly operations and have jobs automatically routed to output devices that print at a lower cost-per-page.
Many campuses today already have cost recovery systems in place. With embedded applications that leverage the Canon MEAP platform, you can easily link your devices to Pharos and Equitrac cost recovery systems to effectively capture and track device related costs. The costs can be assigned to the appropriate school, department, cost center, grant or special project to help you more effective manage your expenses.
