Inkgard™ Software Reduces Printing Costs Up to 75%
SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--
iProlog Corporation, a leader in productivity enhancing and cost saving print technologies, has released Inkgard™ (www.Inkgard.com) print management software. Inkgard™ allows users to gain up to 300% more page prints using any inkjet or laser printer. With combined average cartridge costs of $601 or more, one Inkgard™ software license, at only $9.99 per year, can pay for itself2 over 8 times by the time the cartridges are only 50% used during the year. One ink or toner cartridge managed with Inkgard™ control software, can yield up to four times the amount of print output as an uncontrolled equivalent cartridge, while maintaining document output quality. Before buying, users can calculate projected savings using a free Gains Calculator at Inkgard.com. Inkgard™ software works with all popular inkjet and laser printers, including HP®, Epson®, Canon (News - Alert)®, Lexmark®, Dell® and others.
"We are pleased to offer this ecologically and financially friendly solution at a time when consumers and businesses are feeling the impact of the current economic climate. Decreasing the cost of printing long term will save jobs that might otherwise be lost. Downloadable Inkgard™ software will result in fast and significant gains for mainstream inkjet and laser printer users worldwide and significantly reduce unnecessary pressure on landfills," stated James M. Danforth, President of iProlog.
"Printing costs are significant expenses for businesses and for users at home. Inkgard™ is the first release of a family of highly innovative solutions being introduced by iProlog to address the need for systematic planning, management and control of costs associated with printing. Some important features include: preset minimum gain settings, reporting on printing activity by document type, tracking of print volume, effective supplies costs monitoring, computation of actual dollar savings, and more. Inkgard's low cost, useful features and unbeatable profit returns for users will have a strong appeal and lead to fast, overwhelming adoption worldwide," says Thomas Villwock, Ph.D. founder and CEO.
How It Works:
Inkgard™ lets users save ink and reduce waste every time they print. With an innovative and easy-to-use Smart Ink Control user interface dial, users can choose an ink and toner savings setting from 0-75%. Users can configure their desired ink or toner savings once or custom-adjust for different print jobs. Inkgard™ then optimizes printing based on the savings setting and document type, while maintaining sharp, high-quality output. A setting of 75% savings will allow one cartridge to output as many pages as the equivalent of four uncontrolled cartridges.
The Inkgard™ solution is created to appeal to a broad base of users - including individuals at home, small businesses, educational, corporate, government and institutional users. The underlying technology increases the ink & toner efficiency of any printer by up to 4 times. Inkgard™ guards from excessive ink and toner waste by removing redundant print drops with intelligent image processing, while maintaining maximum document and/or image quality.
Inkgard™ arrives at a time when home and business consumers are looking to stretch their budgets through productivity enhancements and still pursue positive environmental strategies. In the order of 350,000,000 cartridges are deposited into landfills every year. Widespread adoption of Inkgard™ software will significantly reduce this number and save customers money.
Licensing is based on an annual flat rate subscription for unlimited usage starting at $9.99 for single users. Inkgard™ is immediately available for download now at http://www.Inkgard.com/.
