Administrative printing and copy services currently provides printers and multi-function devices which include your printing, copying, scanning and possibly even fax machine. Multi-function devices are conveniently located within department and office areas for use by Florida SouthWestern State College Faculty and Staff.
As part of this administrative printing initiative, all existing copy machines were replaced with more efficient multi-function devices that now serve as your main printer, scanner, and copier; and in some cases fax machine.
In addition, by reducing the college’s printer fleet the college resources will be utilized much more efficiently, as it is much less expensive to print to multi-function devices than to individual printers. Printers use more electricity, toner is more expensive, maintenance and replacement parts are more costly, and they utilize more staff time to support. Also, these multi-function devices have a much higher print per minute ratio than stand-alone printers.
Beginning on or around September 15th, the PaperCut Print Management Software will be live on your desktop computer to assist you in making the most economical choices for your print jobs. This will show you on a job by job basis the cost to print. A popup box will appear and ask you to confirm the charging details. The print job may be charged to a shared account (a college department cost center that has budget funds to cover printing costs), or to your personal account (using your personal balance of funds that you have added to your Buc Card).
We anticipate that the ID Card Swipe access on the multi-function copier devices will be up and running by September 30, 2014. Please visit the BUC Card Office on your campus if you have not yet picked up your card.
Paper, toner and maintenance will be included as a part of the copy charge.
