Who uses Pcounter?
Pcounter is being used at many schools all over the world, from well-known prestigious
universities to high schools, secondary schools, and school boards. Students can use
a lot of paper, whether they are printing out multiple drafts of research papers or
surfing the web. Pcounter enables academic sites to eliminate print waste
completely. It can be used in a pay-as-you-print scheme, or students can be granted
a limited amount of pages each semester. Some sites allow students to print as much
as they want to, and add the cost to their tuition bill.
Pcounter is used by various government agencies worldwide for allocating and tracking
departmental printing costs and printing security.
With today's affordable color printing technology, real estate agencies which at one time
needed to produce brochures at professional printing companies are now able to create them
in-house. Pcounter gives agencies the ability to identify which agents are printing
and to bill them later for printing costs.
Attorneys are well-known for billing clients for consumables, and the Pcounter popup
provides this capability for printing. Users are presented with a list of client
codes/matter numbers in order to identify the purpose of a print job, and the resulting
data is used for billing to clients of printing costs.
As discussed above for attorneys, Pcounter is used for client billing of printing costs.
Higher cost print media is often used in research, and Pcounter is a valuable tool
in recovering those costs.
