The IT Power Plant wanted to create a unified printing experience for all faculty, staff, students, and community members at the Urbana campus. The goal was to reduce complexity in how you print, where you can print, what the costs for printing are, how printers are maintained, and ultimately reduce the cost of maintaining the printing environment.​
