|Analyzing how people print documents can positively|
Three out of four people say they feel guilty when printing unnecessary pages, but most say they don’t know how to change their printing habits. By incorporating elements of gamification into software that monitors and analyzes how people print, Xerox technology is encouraging workers to become more environmentally friendly.

By building quantitative models of the impact of each process in the enterprise, we can assess the impact of changes in business processes on many green dimensions (energy, paper, waste, transportation, etc.). We have also developed personal assessment calculators that let individuals look at their own environmental impact.

|Energy optimization software that’s smart enough to know when it makes sense to wind down
The Simegy system optimizes the energy consumption of printers by dynamically setting timeouts, with minimal user impact and extremely low administrative overhead. The widely used solutions to manage the printers’ timeouts are static: a set of rules is decided and statically set once. Automated statistical analysis of the print activity of the fleet brings dynamic capabilities by individually updating every device timeout, and can help reduce the power consumption by up to 20%.
