    • Minimize filing space, postage costs and paper waste with standard automatic duplex printing.
    • Protect information—and your budget. Access to system functions and page volume limits can be set with User Restriction controls. Using Locked Print can help secure confidential information.
    • Monitor the system in real-time, remotely. Web Image Monitor offers immediate access to supply status and print network settings.
