ID cards make printing more efficient for Pennsylvania campus

Category: ID Cards in the News

At Mercyhurst College in Pennsylvania, students and staff are saving money and time with a new print management system. The system, which included new printers, software, and ID card functionality, reduced the total number of printers from 565 to just 80 and cut unnecessary printing by 30 percent.

The new multifunctional printers are designed to work with student and staff ID cards. When a user sends a print job to the queue, it is held there until the user authorizes the print. By swiping their ID card at the print station, users are able to see all pending documents and delete any unnecessary or duplicate prints. With this reduction in printing, the school has also been able to decrease the price of each black and white or color document.  By tying the printers to users’ ID cards, documents are kept safe from accidental deletion by other users or mistakenly being thrown out. Students and staff can easily load more print credits onto their cards on two cash-to-card devices on campus.

Mercyhurst’s new print system saves students money and allows them to work wirelessly from any computer or laptop on campus with the swipe of a card. These multipurpose ID cards have benefits all over the small campus, and are used for meal plans and dorm access along with printing credits.
