Software Shelf, the worldwide software leader in Windows Print Management solutions, today announced the newest version of its award winning flagship product Print Manager Plus 2008.

Print Manager Plus 2008 includes the industry’s first native Active Directory integration and compatibility with Windows Server 2008, and all previous Windows Operating systems. The 2008 version continues its distinction as the only product in the industry to offer complete support for every printer and plotter manufacturer on the market.

“Version 2008 is the most significant upgrade to Print Manager Plus in the history of our company.” said Software Shelf CEO, William Feeley, “It marks a milestone in the development of all print management solutions that corral the accounting of and cost of printing, helping our customers cut printing related costs by up to 75%.”

Despite the wide availability of paperless office solutions, today’s businesses typically spend from 3 to 5 percent of revenues on printing related infrastructure and consumables. Without the need for outside services or complex new software, Print Manager Plus makes printing efficient, increases cost savings while lowering IT resource requirements. As a software only solution, Print Manager Plus 2008 is available at a fraction of what you pay for similar IT products on the market.

With the new native Active Directory integration, the solution offers customers a completely integrated platform to control, audit and precisely manage their entire printing environment with unsurpassed speed, security and efficiency. From the individual IT manager to the CFO, Print Manager Plus is packed with extensive new reporting features, including over 150 new built in reports, enabling printing to be tracked and controlled at any level of granularity.

New security related features in the 2008 version enable easy compliance to regulations such as HIPAA security rules and similar rules of UK and European Data Protection regulations, as well as Sarbanes Oxley in the US.

Print Manager Plus is a Green product featured by Guide Me Green last month as software that is saving 150,000 trees every month due to the paper savings it achieves for its customers.
