HP and Equitrac Express Pay-for-Print Solution for Education makes print management easy―for higher education institutions, K–12 schools, academic libraries, and others―to recover campus-wide print and copy costs, make printing convenient, enhance security, and encourage responsible printing. Equitrac Express offers convenient payment methods by integrating with many campus card systems.

Institutions can increase mobility and productivity, using Follow-You Printing with Secure Document Release with HP LaserJet MFPs. Staff and students can print documents at their MFP of choice—across servers, departments, and geographic boundaries. Through authentication, Follow-You Printing makes it easy to keep confidential materials out of the wrong hands.

Using Rules & Routing functionality helps you enforce print rules to better control costs and optimize your fleet. Comprehensive reporting tools provide valuable data, so organizations can track and manage activity at the MFP.

    Your school or organization can use this pay-for-print solution to:
  • Authenticate user identity before allowing device access
  • Establish a detailed record of who accessed which device at what time
  • Hold print documents in a secure server until users authenticate at the output device
  • Prevent confidential print documents from sitting unattended in output trays
  • Assign charges to specific users, departments, customers or job numbers
  • Implement guidelines and rules for printing throughout the organization to optimize printing and reduce waste

How it works?

Documents sent to print from a student or staff’s PC are held in the secure print queue managed by the Equitrac server. With Follow-You Printing the user releases a document, at the most convenient device, through card swipe and/or PIN authentication. The user’s account is then automatically charged.
