Our new Managed Print solution has finally arrived, promising reliable, high-quality printing from any machine around school. Computers are no longer tied to specific printers – instead jobs can be sent to the “Follow-Me Queue” and collected from any printer using a five-digit code. Students and staff should check their email for the code itself, or can log on with their normal username and password should they forget!
Steve Pearce, BFET’s Network Manager, said, “This reflects a new approach to printing at the school, and doubtless it’ll take a bit of getting used to. However, together with better quality printing, over time we expect to see financial and environmental benefits. Users can see the cost (in bothÂ environmental and cash terms) of every print job they send.”
For users (both staff and students) here’s the information sheet on print release using your PIN, and also on using the devices as a copier. Student Digital Leaders will be on hand during the first week to help.
