Equitrac Print Management Solution Helps HP Multifunction Printer Users Cut Printing Costs, Improve Security and Accountability

Equitrac Support Extended to All HP Model CM8050 and CM8060 Devices

PLANTATION, FL--(Marketwire - January 28, 2010) - Equitrac Corporation, a global provider of award-winning print and cost management solutions, today announced the availability of the latest version of Equitrac Embedded solutions for HP Multifunction Printers (MFPs). In addition to providing complete tracking of copies, scans, and faxes, the new solution includes enhanced security features, such as the ability to release prints on-demand from a compatible HP device control panel. The embedded solution is available for Equitrac's entire suite of products including Equitrac Office® for the enterprise, Equitrac Express® for education, and Equitrac Professional® for legal firms and other professional organizations.

"Equitrac's solutions help customers dramatically reduce ad hoc print costs," said Noel O'Dwyer, vice president of marketing and strategic alliances, Equitrac Corporation. "Through our print management strategies, customers are seeing reductions in their total output volumes, improved document security, and improved accountability -- which all translate into greater cost savings."

In addition to extending support to both HP model CM8050 and CM8060 devices, the updated release includes the following print and cost management benefits:

--  Increase productivity -- Follow-You Printing® with Secure Document
    Release increases mobility and productivity by freeing users to output
    documents at the HP MFP of their choice: across servers, departments and
    even geographic boundaries.  Users can output documents when and where they
    are needed while avoiding the inconvenience of busy or out of service
    printers.
    
--  Print waste reduction -- Follow-You Printing® supports an
    organization's "green" initiatives by reducing waste through the
    elimination of abandoned print jobs. Equitrac also enforces print policies
    by using automated rules and document routing, allowing for certain types
    of print jobs (e.g. color) to be sent to the most cost effective printers.
    
--  Offline validation -- Even when a print network is experiencing an
    outage, users can continue to access HP devices for copies while tracking
    is maintained.  This optimized uptime increases accounting accuracy and
    ensures document security at all times.
    
--  Improved walk-up tracking supports job accounting and cost recovery --
    Now every print, copy, fax and scan completed at a walk-up device can be
    accounted for and charged back to the appropriate user or department.
    
--  Convenient administration -- An Equitrac interface is accessible from
    the MFP's embedded web page, so administrative staff can confirm that the
    Equitrac solution is loaded on the device.  It provides access to general
    status information as well as certain administrative functions.
    
--  Card auto-registration -- With Equitrac Embedded for Equitrac
    Professional, card auto-registration, enables a user to register a new card
    directly at the MFP, reducing the time required to register new cards.
    

"Forward-thinking companies understand that achieving true efficiency requires a holistic view across the organization," said Michael Turner, director of Technology Solutions and Partners, HP. "Equitrac Corporation's continued commitment to providing industry-leading solutions means customers have the necessary tools to optimize workflows, reduce costs, support green initiatives and drive their business to the next level."
