Kyocera software secures printing, reduces waste


Kyocera Net Policy Manager allows administrators to set policy controls over printing and users to collect their print jobs from any device.

By using swipe or proximity cards as a means of identifying users, Kyocera Net Policy Manager (KNPM) provides an additional layer of security by only printing documents when their owner arrives at the printer or multifunction.

In addition to improving security, this approach also helps reduce the waste of paper and toner caused by jobs that are printed by never collected from the output tray.

The system can be used with identity or access cards already employed within the organisation, making life more convenient for users.

It also works when scanning, automatically depositing the files in the appropriate location for that user.

If appropriate cards haven't been deployed, users can identify themselves by entering a PIN.

Users also save time, as KNMP allows them to print collect jobs from whichever suitable device is available.

The software also provides for central control over output options, for example to mandate the use of double-sided printing, or to limit particular choices (eg colour printing) to members of certain groups.

"Kyocera Net Policy Manager represents a very economical option for organisations that standardise on Kyocera equipment," said George Kharoufeh, product marketing manager, Kyocera Document Solutions Australia and New Zealand.

"In particular, our customers from small to mid-sized enterprises struggle to implement cost saving and environmental policies. KNPM is a really simple and affordable software solution that enables them to do this so well."
