Industry Experts Confirm Savings from Pull-Print

Pull-Print, MPD, My-Print-Delivery, Save Money

Savings from Pull-Print

Research confirms that pull-print solutions (also know as print release and follow me printing) save cost.
Data from Managed Print Services providers indicates a 15% reduction in print volume when a pull-print solution is in place. Customers can estimate the amount of “indicative” cost savings by multiplying the number of employees x 400 pages per month (avg employee print volume) x 15% (pages saved) x $0.03 (avg cost per page). Of course, individual circumstances could vary significantly but these averages should provide a general idea of potential cost benefit. In addition to reduced pages printed pull print solutions add security as printed documents are not left unattended Plus Technologies‘ pull-print product is called OM Plus My-Print-Delivery (MPD).
