Printing, Year in Review 2017

Project description developed

The OneIT Printing project kicked off in late 2017. It will focus on:

  • Visibility of services and efficiency of printer purchase decision-making. 
  • Advertisement of print services to offer reports to departments on their printers. 
  • The reduction of effort required to support printers.
  • A best-practice model for decommissioning printing devices (printers/multi-function devices) that contain hard disk drives or other data storage devices.
  • Assistance for users when purchasing an appropriate printer for their needs.

Benefits to campus identified

The project will benefit campus by:

  • Decreasing the total cost of printing on campus through standardization (where appropriate) of printing hardware and easier access to print accounting data.
  • Providing online service guides to direct users through the printer selection and purchasing process of the recommended printers.  
  • Creating a decommissioning process to meet security concerns for devices that may have stored sensitive data.
