Ramsey-based Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc. announced Tuesday that St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens, Fla., has implemented a new printing process using services, software and hardware from Konica Minolta.
For example, the university replaced its aging student printers with Konica Minolta products. Like many universities, St. Thomas University offered unlimited student printing, but with rising printing costs, the university had limited capabilities to track and control printing, according to a release. With the new products, the school was able to analyze printing behavior, and students are now allotted a specific number of print impressions per semester and need to ask for an extension if they reach their limit. The university discovered that 5 percent of users were responsible for 30 percent of the total number of pages printed, according to the release.
