How it works

TonerSaver works between the user’s application and the manufacturer’s standard printer driver. No training is needed. The user just prints as normal. TonerSaver analyzes data sent to the printer driver by the application and intelligently adjusts color density levels in real time to give savings without affecting print speed. After modifying the color density levels TonerSaver passes the page data straight on to the printer driver. The printer driver then creates the output as usual so the resolution, formatting and quality of text, graphics and images are unaffected.

TonerSaver can keep a record of every print job that is processed and save it to a local storage device. The local log viewer can then be used to check printing history. If TonerSaver Log Server is installed administrators can manage corporate printing operations centrally. The client will forward all print records to the Log Server for cost and security analysis. The TonerSaver Log Server component is provided for free to companies who license the TonerSaver client software.

How TonerSaver works

Installation

Installation is easy. The TonerSaver client software can be installed locally or remotely over the network on client workstations. By providing appropriate settings files, administrators can control the reduction rate on a per user or per group basis. TonerSaver can be used with any laser or inkjet printer from any manufacturer. Individual printers can be given separate reduction rates if needed.

The TonerSaver client software is designed to run as a standalone application on client workstations so it will not interfere with existing network environments such as Active Directory or other workgroups.

The optional TonerSaver Server runs on a dedicated server machine. In order to minimize network traffic, client PCs only send PrivatePrintlog to the server each time when print job was executed. The TonerSaver Server user interface can be accessed remotely by administrators from Internet Explorer 7 or later. Management team is able to review a detailed report and graph of all print activities, including cost savings, the amount of paper used, paper size, black & white color ratio, file name, and others. The Printlogs can be exported to .csv file for further analysis.
