With Bayside’s range of 1-to-1 programs, computer Labs and BYOD policy, there are now more devices on campus than people.
With everyone having access to networked devices and everything in the cloud, Bayside’s expectation was that printing would be decreasing. But that was not the case. Its printing requirements were surging.
This demand was placing pressure on costs. And the associated energy and consumables use of Bayside’s laser printers was of environmental concern. While PaperCut was helping control printing, the College’s fleet of printers was ageing and unable to really leverage this print management tool.
There was also a growing need for high quality colour printing, particularly by the College’s Media Labs.
