What does a Print Audit with Pharos Insights look like?
“Within a day, you can have the software installed and collecting information about all your network printers inside your environment.It’ll find printers you know about, and it’ll likely find printers you don’t know about, because there are probably printers out there connected that you’re unaware of.And when I say a day, it’s really only about 10 minutes to get installed, but within a day, you’ll be able to log into the interface and see data collected. So don’t take that as a full day of work.This utility will scan your entire network, find all those network printers, and capture meters, supplies, and usage. It’s automated in the sense that it runs on a schedule, so you don’t have to log in and execute or kick off the scans. They happen automatically.The intent is that this is just silently happening in the background, gathering data that gets aggregated and displayed to you through a web browser. That information will be aggregated automatically in the cloud.You’ll be able to access it through a dashboard via a web interface, and you’ll be able to start immediately understanding what print is happening from a fleet perspective.So, one app gets installed on a server, it scans your whole network, and as I say, within a day you’re starting to capture information about all your network printers.”
