One universal print driver combined with user-friendly authentication gives users across your enterprise instant access to any enabled device within their global network.
Get the complete picture. Throughout the day, Lexmark Accounting captures information about each user’s activity. The solution collects data for all print, copy and scan-to functions, including activities initiated through Lexmark embedded solutions that have been deployed to the device. Your organization can now monitor activity for each location and calculate output costs for each employee and device.
Every printer is “your printer.” Imagine authenticating at a device and the home screen is in your native language1. And among the icons displayed are all of the one-touch shortcuts you’ve created to speed up your work day. With Lexmark My e-Task, any device you walk up to transforms into your personal device. Setting your preferences is as easy as pointing your browser to the solution’s web portal.
Any device, any time. Lexmark Print Release gives you the latitude to print documents on any enabled printer or MFP on your network — whether the device is down the hall or across the country. Even better, your print jobs stay in the server queue until you release them, so any confidential content in those documents remains that way. Authenticating is as easy as swiping your badge or entering your credentials.

Authenticate, Select and Release.

Select the documents you want to print from the queue. If you are using a Lexmark printer or MFP with the Print Preview feature, you can view thumbnails of your documents and select only the pages you want to print.
If you want to print a document again later, press the Print and Keep option and the document will be returned to the queue; otherwise, just press Print. If there are documents in the queue that you no longer want, select them and then press Delete.

The portal lets you view your Print Release queue, view your personal job summaries and reports, assign a delegate to release print jobs for you, and access Lexmark My e-Task to set up your preferences and shortcuts.
How Lexmark Print Release helps you Print Less. Save More.
Are unclaimed documents piled next to printers a common sight in your offices? Research conducted by IPSOS on behalf of Lexmark showed that one out of every six pages printed ends up in the wastebasket. At Lexmark, we believe that the most sustainable page is the page that you don’t print. That’s why we were the first to endorse this simple strategy: Print Less.
Using less paper is good for the environment and it is just good business. When implemented as part of a smart deployment strategy, Lexmark Print Release can help your organization slash unnecessary printing, not only reducing paper consumption but also toner and electricity usage, maintenance costs, and the number of output devices you deploy.
• Reduces waste by enabling users to “pull” the documents they want to print rather than “push” them to a printer.
• Lexmark Print Release can be set up to purge unprinted jobs automatically after a specified amount of time has passed.
• Gives users paper-saving options, like easy-to-create shortcuts for duplexing or multi-up printing.
• Increases individual awareness and accountability by letting users view their activity log.
• Detailed accounting helps organizations pinpoint high-volume devices or user groups that could benefit from digital workflow solutions.
Print Less. Save More.
