About Equitrac Express

  • Equitrac Express software lets you track, analyze, or charge for every page output by any student, faculty member, staffer or guest on any desktop printer, networked multifunction product or walk-up copier. With the new I-QueueTM users don’t have to think about what printer or printer configuration that they send a print job to. By using I-Queue, jobs can be securely released at any printer or MFP – regardless of type – at any location on the network. Administrators no longer have to set up separate print queues to account for print driver compatibility.
