Equitrac Enhances Print Management Solution to Manage Costs, Improve Document Security and Reduce Print Waste

Latest Release of Equitrac Office 4 Now Available

PLANTATION, FL--(Marketwire - September 23, 2009) - Equitrac Corporation, an award-winning print and cost management solutions provider, today announced the availability of the latest version of Equitrac Office® 4, designed specifically for corporate enterprises to drive down document printing costs and overall waste, while increasing the security of confidential documents.

"Organizations today are looking for more efficient ways of managing document output and related costs," said Gaetan Spake, vice president of product management. "Equitrac Office 4 responds to our customers' needs for enhanced print control, flexibility and greater convenience."

Equitrac Office is deployed in corporations around the world -- including more than 50 of the Fortune 500 enterprises -- to authorize, authenticate and account for use of multi-function devices (MFDs), copiers, and printers. It supports every major output device as well as database types, operating systems and user identification methods.

New in Equitrac Office 4

Equitrac Office provides the scalability to manage from one to thousands of MFDs serving tens of thousands of users in various markets including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and the general business enterprise. New features of the latest version include:

--  Advanced reporting capabilities - This version of Equitrac Office 4
    offers enhanced reporting including more granular media usage, enabling IT
    administrators to make more informed decisions about paper usage in the
    printer network, driving down costs and reducing wasted paper supplies.
    
--  Convenient pop-up notification - End-user pop-up notification now
    supports features such as hypertext links. Users can be directed to content-
    rich information such as intranet pages describing print policies, or a job
    ticket to route the company's central reprographic department.
    
--  Web-based Release Station - The Release Station is now a web-based add-
    on to Equitrac Office 4, allowing end users to log on and release print
    jobs from common browsers.  In addition to improving usability for the end
    user, the Release Station minimizes the installation and maintenance burden
    on the IT department since the need for a thick client is no longer
    required.
    
--  Enhanced print control with Follow-You Printing® - Organizations
    with Xerox EIP and Sharp OSA3 devices can now offer users the ability to
    override the print workflow default at the printer and opt to print a color
    document in black and white. This new feature helps enterprises minimize
    unnecessary color printing, which helps to drive down costs.
    
--  Extended partner integration - Equitrac Office 4 now supports Apple
    Remote Desktop, direct IP printing to Macintosh workstations and both
    PowerPC and Intel platforms.  Additionally, the software supports iPrint on
    Novell SUSE 10 OES2 SP1, Canon's GARO print driver, and greater security
    features at the print spooler.  Finally, organizations can save on
    licensing costs when integrating Equitrac Office with Equitrac Embedded for
    Xerox EIP, or eCopy ShareScan.
