Tel Aviv, Israel (March 18, 2013) - ,Preton, the leading provider of printing cost reduction software, announced today that the company has added enhanced page coverage analysis features in the new version of its PretonSaver™

The enhanced page coverage analysis features in the new version of PretonSaver calculate the exact amount of color and monochrome toner that is used for each printed page.

Managed Print Service (MPS) providers can use PretonSaver's page coverage analysis features to improve their color printing pricing strategies. By calculating the exact amount of color toner that is used in each printed page, PretonSaver now enables MPS providers to define page coverage thresholds and offer multi-tiered pricing for color print jobs. The ability to offer scaled pricing for color printing can benefit an MPS provider with an essential competitive advantage, especially during initial contract negotiations.

"In many MPS engagements today, color pricing is triggered even if a print job contains only one color pixel and to no surprise, most MPS customers see this as unfair,” explained Tim Bohn, Preton’s Vice President of North America Operations. “Scaled pricing for color printing based on our page coverage calculations provides an MPS provider with an important opportunity to differentiate its offering, improve long term customer loyalty and even increase profitability and revenue!”

PretonSaver optimizes the amount of toner consumed during the printing process by utilizing Preton’s core "Pixel Optimizer™ technology, which intelligently identifies and removes overlapping and other unnecessary pixels. PretonSaver reduces toner consumption without visibly impacting output quality or interfering with end user processes. PretonSaver also provides a robust set of user focused reporting data and includes extensive print policy enforcement capabilities for further reducing toner consumption and lowering paper usage.
