Tracks all printing activity
OP is designed to manage print jobs from workstations that are spooled to a Windows server or workstation. Using specifically installed software, OP can track and control printing for shared and local printers on local or remote print servers/workstations. OP supports printers, users, computers, and groups in active directory and workgroup environments.
Every feature of OP can be used via the web application. End users do not need to download or install any software on their machines. The web application is served over HTTPS, allowing you to secure communications with an SSL certificate. All print jobs can be saved and viewed later as an image. Print jobs may also have a preview image. When printing a document, it will be saved as an image.
Control printers, users, computers and groups with quotas and restrictions
OP is used to control and restrict users/printers/computers/groups to ensure sensible print use by allocating a quota. Enter the account balance to be allocated to a user, printer, computer or group. The quota can be limited or unlimited. The quota panel can be used to automatically increase/reset the credit limit according to the amount and schedule specified. OP offers advanced filter options to filter or restrict printing jobs using a set of rules. Printing quotas and restrictions can be set for every user/printer/computer/group.
Advanced reporting and charts
Reports are designed for print cost analysis and client billing. Reports are typically run to print a summary of user activity, printer activity, group activity or computer activity. Standard reports include statistics for users, printers, computers, and groups (sorted by period).
