I'll Guard This Printer With My Life: CC's Journey to Managed Print

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

I will tell the story of converting Colorado College to a managed print system. We went from 585 printers (more printers than employees) to 115 and are saving approximately a quarter-million dollars each year after the transition. I’ll highlight the gotchas and wish-Id’ve-knowns as well as things which went particularly well. I’ll give you a preview of the objections you’re likely to hear when trying to sell this to users and how to counteract each one.

I'll also include our transition to Papercut and a single printer queue to make printing for students in our managed print environment much easier than it used to be (and saving large amounts of wasted paper - about 10%).

Help Desk Team Lead, Colorado College
Like most English majors, I lead our IT Help Desk at Colorado College and have since the early 2000's. I'm a supertaster, meaning I have a higher concentration of taste buds than mere mortals and taste things much more intensely.
