Introduction

Adobe LeanPrint Dashboard is a central location where you can track and manage your print costs, usage, and savings. The Dashboard shows a comprehensive visual snapshot and trends of print cost and savings summary for your entire organization.

You can view an estimate of the actual print costs and how much you have saved through LeanPrint for a specific time period. The visual summary of print usage shows how much your organization is spending on various aspects of printing. The Dashboard also shows an estimate of the overall cost and usage metrics for all users, groups, and printers.

Key tracking and reporting features of LeanPrint Dashboard

  • Assessment and savings phase: the assessment phase gives you a sense of your current print environment before you actually deploy LeanPrint in the savings phase. In the assessment phase, LeanPrint works in the background and reports information about your printers, print usage, and the print cost.
  • A single page view of overall costs and saving summary: the savings summary snapshot shows the actual print costs and the savings realized through LeanPrint at the organization level. Additional pie charts show you the original costs, actual costs, and savings by mode, application, color mode, and by MPS and self-managed printers.
  • Organization and group level trends: you can see whether the overall savings trend is going up or down at the overall organization as well as various groups levels. ­­
  • Print cost and usage at a printer level: shows which printer is used to print how many pages.
  • Savings at group and user level: shows savings metrics at a group as well as a user level.
  • Savings by application: shows print usage metrics across applications.

The overall usage, costs, and savings information can help your IT administrators and other decision makers in your organization in discovering future costs trends and savings potential. The administrators can quickly manage IT administrators, printers, groups, costs, and reports.
