Improve security, reduce waste and remove USB printers
After selecting a device, users can release jobs via card swipe, short ID or user credentials – while physically at the device. This prevents unauthorized users to see potentially confidential information. Secure printing can be installed with a card reader or embedded.
Documents are released only after authentication at the printer. Jobs can be collected whenever convenient for the user. Information about every transaction is sent to the Cirrato system for a full audit trail of who printed what and where.
Reduce waste & environmental impact
People often forget to pick up print jobs, leaving a pile of uncollected paper next to the printer that then gets thrown away. Authentication puts a stop to this as printing will only start when the user is physically at the printer. After a certain amount of time has passed, the job will automatically be erased from the print queue. Using secure printing, customers report a total paper consumption reduction of up to 40%.
Remove local printers
Many organizations still maintain local USB printers for handling their sensitive documents. With secure printing, USB printers can be removed, while privacy is maintained and the output quality is enhanced by using with shared, multifunctional printers.
