Thursday, July 13, 2006

Press release from the issuing company

MALVERN, Pa.--July 12, 2006-- IKON Office Solutions, the world's largest independent channel for document management systems and services, today announced that it will add ROI Print Manager from Print Control Software, Inc. to its Premier Partner Program, further enhancing the Company's integrated portfolio of document management solutions. ROI Print Manager is an innovative software tool designed to help organizations develop, manage and maximize their print strategy based upon the optimal document workflow. By establishing guidelines for maximum print efficiency, companies can leverage existing print investments that are often underutilized, as well as re-direct volume to the in-house print center where the cost-per-page can be dramatically lower. Through pre-defined criteria, ROI Print Manager reviews each print job request to ensure that it is sent to the most appropriate and cost effective output device. "Most companies' have not deployed printing technologies through a centralized strategy, creating excess capacity and an inefficient cost structure," said Michael E. Kohlsdorf, senior vice president of IKON Enterprise Services and Information Technology. "ROI Print Manager is designed to provide a clear view of the customer's printing environment and establish guidelines for managing print costs, creating a blueprint for building greater cost-efficiency and productivity over time." ROI Print Manager is designed to help businesses manage their print activity within the guidelines of an overall document management and production strategy. Customized routing rules are designed to automatically modify end user "print behavior" to contain output costs and balance workloads across the enterprise, without disrupting productivity levels. Ongoing usage tracking and reporting also is intended to allow for adjustments as a company's document strategy evolves with its broader business objectives. ROI Print Manager is configured, implemented and supported by IKON's team of professional services specialists, and supports the Company's document strategy assessment offerings. IKON's team can help design and implement an enterprise-wide print management and cost-containment strategy, and then uses ROI Print Manager to help manage the strategy and implementation. IKON also offers printer fleet management services to help manage a print strategy on an ongoing basis. "The combination of ROI Print Manager software and IKON's professional services team results in a powerful solution for companies struggling to manage their print environment," said Shane Hannan, director of sales, Print Control Software. "Our customers are able to identify printing abuse, control costs, maximize existing investments and apply greater management to their printer fleet on an ongoing basis."
