How PrintSmart Cost Control helps

Cost Control provides complete visibility over ‘what, when,and how much’ each employee prints – providing small or medium businesses (SMBs) with greater control over their printing expenditure.

With PrintSmart Cost Control, your business will benefit from:

  • Enhanced visibility over printer usage for complete cost control
  • Increased budgeting control over all Brother and third-party devices
  • Improved reporting on all printing activity
  • Controlled printing activity through print quotas and budgets

Key features of PrintSmart Cost Control

  • Reporting - Allows the capture of all print job information on a secure server so the administrator can produce a range of reports for controlling costs and improved budgeting.
  • Print Quotas - Quotas can be set so that employees or departments can be assigned different amounts of printing credits.
  • Simple Administration - PrintSmart Cost Control can automatically create and link new users when they print for the first time, and can link with Active Directory and other databases to register new users.
  • Rules-based Printing - The administrator can set various rules that manage the way that users and groups print, for example mono printing for one device while allowing duplex colour printing for another.
