Transcript of "CASE STUDY: Major Cost Savings from Color Print Management"

  1. 1. CASE STUDY: Major Cost Savings from Color Print Management Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  2. 2. The Situation Client: Western and Southern Insurance  181 offices across the U.S. The Printing Problem:  Large amount of waste and cost from unnecessary color printing Client Goal:  Reduce color printing expenses across the entire fleet without hindering necessary color printing Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  3. 3. Print Cost Drivers Printer fleet profile  Operates under a managed print service contract from a printer vendor who charges approximately:  9 cents for each color page printed  < 1 cent for each black/white page printed Complicating factors  Simple color printing strategies are ineffective.  Determining the appropriate color documents is more complex than diverting color to mono based on just user name or device ID.

  4. 4. The Solution: Intelligent Color Print Management Step 1: Upgrade the spooling software.  OM Plus from Plus Technologies is an advanced print spooling solution that can minimize color printing page volume and reduce costs. Step 2: Utilize color print management features.  The software capabilities of OM Plus test documents for a range of established parameters to distinguish documents that need to be printed in color from documents that should be printed in black & white.

  5. 5. How Does Color Print Management Work? By using color print management, OM Plus is able to target documents on a wide range of factors, including:  User name  Printer  Title  File type  Content inside the document Additionally, these determinations are made in real-time. Users can also manage their color printing by defining daily/weekly/monthly quotas for their color printers.  Quotas can be set for an individual or group of printers.  Users will be permitted to print color up to the quota limit. Once the limit has been attained user printing will be routed to a predetermined mono device. Plus Technologies LLC Company Confidential - Copyright 2011 2012
  6. 6. Color Printing – Only When You Need It Using OM Plus’s advanced security system, authorized users may override the OM Plus rules and print in color as needed. This gives the users a seamless, easy to use, intelligent system that can interrogate the entire print stream, identify just the unnecessary color jobs and convert them to mono.

  7. 7. Color Print Management Outcomes Estimated savings from utilizing OM Plus spooler software and color print management amount to more than $300,000 annually. After only four years of using OM Plus, Western and Southern Insurance is positioned to save more than $1 million in printing expenses.
