IA-Ink Saver will contribute to reducing your carbon footprint while minimizing overall printing costs. IA-Ink Saver is a comprehensive module that collects printing data, supervises the process with regard to your business activity, compares the actual costs of suppliers, and especially minimizes toner & ink volumes!
The best way to optimize printing is not to affect the behavior of your employees. Also, in most cases, we automate optimizations in line with the company policy and for some we encourage the approach. This is positive and non-stigmatizing: no “draft mode” or “degraded print.” Monitoring and identifying the progress complete continuous benchmarking of various budget items. As for reducing toner & ink volumes, it is practically invisible to the naked eye and it will be below 20%. It is little noticeable up to 40% and acceptable at 60%. Not to mention the use of the whole product that comes in cartridges!
