At PrintLimit, we love our librarians, and our educators; we want to do anything we can to make their lives easier. That’s the attitude and commitment that gave birth to the PrintLimit Print Release Station.

How many students does your college have? How many people use your library’s printer on a daily basis? Moreover how much time do you spend authorizing and sorting through jobs to make sure everyone’s paying their dues, and you’re not throwing the good paper away on bad jobs? For most libraries, the answer is too much.

PrintLimit Print Release Station is a print control software; it is best suited as the ultimate print management solution for libraries/schools/colleges/universities/cyber cafe shop of low budget, where print jobs hold, and release are centralized and unwanted jobs are restricted. It is the best management of resources, reducing accidental paper wastage and abusive printing. This software has proved fruitful for many libraries and educational facilities to automate and simplify the control of printing and save unwanted costs.

Why Do Our Clients Love PrintLimit Print Release Station?

James E. Wickson Memorial Library"Thanks for the free trial of Release Station.  We are very happy with it. I don't know if I could have justified spending the money if I couldn't see it in action.  I know that already we have saved on many, many copies that patrons were just walking off with as well as copies they looked at, didn't like, and then threw away. I really appreciate that companies like yours develop affordable solutions for small libraries. I started out looking at some very expensive release systems and was thrilled to find yours. "

- Mary Chasseur, James E. Wickson Memorial Library, USA

American University of Rome"The Release Station has made a big impact at The American University of Rome. Before installing Release Station, our printing system was very unreliable resulting in excessive paper waste. Now we run three user-mode "Release-Stations" in two computer labs. Our paper waste has decreased by 40% when compared to figures of three years ago, notwithstanding a 20% increase in our student body. The American University of Rome now has 550 students from all over the world, and we will continue to use Release Station to manage our printing services."
