2016 Annual Review: Printer Refresh
From four vendors, we chose Sharp to supply Pepperdine's newest copier fleet because of their great features and simplified print-release function. With Sharp printers we are able to cut waste and simplify the entire printing process by switching from over-shared print codes to personal ID cards.

In July 2016, Pepperdine IT replaced over 80 Multi-function printers on 5 campuses with brand new, upgraded machines from Sharp Business System.
A new print management system from Papercut was also introduced that allows anyone at Pepperdine to print from anywhere to any Sharp printer at Pepperdine.
Our new print management system from PaperCut removes the burden of overshared copy codes in favor of tracking prints with your NetworkID, providing improved tracking and accountability.
The new printers also provide increased flexibility and security and has allowed us to improve our reporting capabilities.
We are now able to provide the university with more in-depth reports of printing information that influence budget and spending decisions. With the refresh, we can see the direction in which printing is going and are able to proactively address hurdles before they arise in the future.
