As a Solution Center of PaperCut, Ecoprintq has specialized support for merging different scripts into one for multiple print policy rules, providing only one Pop up interface to the end user when they do not comply with any or various print policies implemented within your organization.
ecoprintQ has helped Educational Institutions like Miami Dade College-MDC, Houston Community College-HCC, Nova Southeastern University-NSU and also in the Financial sector to organizations such as Huntington Bank to implement print policy rules that respond to different organization policies.
