DS-Print for Institutions...
The University Managed Print Service (MPS) operating under the banner name of DS-Print is a centralised system for managing print, copy and scan usage across the collegiate University.
It uses a customised print management system to route print queues via a central print management service, dealing on behalf of each participating institution with all print spooling, auditing, reporting, user authentication and charging. This reduces costs for institutions, in exchange for a modest fee, by eliminating the hassle and overhead of having to purchase, maintain and administer local infrastructure.
