Monitor and account for all printing from within your organisation with Pcounter.

One of the standout features of Pcounter is the way it can monitor and account for all printing done within your organisation. The versatility of this leading print accounting solution is vast, making Pcounter an ideal solution for a wide range of businesses, education establishments and public sector organisations.

When using Pcounter all users’ print activity is recorded. The information you can get from Pcounter is highly detailed, giving you the best view of how your organisation prints. Print activity is recorded showing the date/time, user, cost-centre, document, workstation, printer, paper size, page count, byte size, colour/mono/duplex characteristics and cost of the job.

Network and locally attached printers can be monitored as well as photocopiers, MFDs, plotters and high volume print room devices.

User/Group Level Print Accounting

When Pcounter is capable of monitoring print at a very granular level. At an administrative level it is simple to monitor print output of both users, or a group of users. Admins can track the types of job printed such as duplex, mono or colour prints and this user information can be exported into simple to understand reports in common file formats such as PDF and CSV.

Print Device or Fleet Accounting

Printers are expensive devices, and they can become increasingly expensive if not managed and used properly. With Pcounter installed on your print servers you will have the ability to conveniently monitor and manage your print fleet.MFD displaying print accounting

Administrators can monitor how the print devices are used, when they are used and by whom. This level of accounting is helpful as underused printers can be repositioned and jobs can be routed to these machines, ensuring device degradation is minimised as much as possible. Admins can also route certain jobs to specific printers, so high quality colour print jobs over 15 pages could be routed to the most efficient machine, therefore minimising costs by sending it to a printer that costs more for ink.

This information can provide great insights on how your print fleet is used and managed, and by utilising this information you can then rationalise your print fleet and make it work for you, providing greater ROI by saving money and time.
