In recent years, climate change has threatened the environment. Governments have recognized environmental sustainability as an area of competitive national advantage. As a result, they are implementing green regulations on businesses to adopt practices that reduce reliance on carbon-based
energy sources. To encourage firms to consume less energy, governments are offering tax rebates and other incentives to companies that meet new green requirements.
To control energy consumption and gain long-term cost savings, companies are searching for efficient solutions to manage and monitor printer use. IT managers and administrators need an efficient way to manage fleets of multifunction printers (MFPs) while reducing energy consumption and printing supply costs. The increasing cost of paper and toner cartridges is requiring businesses to find aggressive ways to monitor and reduce the use of these supplies.
