Villanova, like most other institutions and businesses, finds itself in the midst of the "digital age" with the perceived promise of the "paperless office" delivered via computer based electronic alternatives to paper.
To address the rising support costs of such a large and diverse print community, the University created a "Print Management Strategy & Roadmap", which presents the overall vision for managing costs while providing users with the appropriate level of printing, copying, and faxing capabilities. The University's "VPrint Program" provides the tactical actions necessary to meet this vision. There are three goals detailing the program:
- Manage costs
- Insure academic printing needs are met
- Educate the University community about alternatives to hardcopy output
