About Managed Print Service

The Managed Print Service provides printing, copying and scanning in UCC. It is a user-friendly, secure, efficient service that aims to minimise both cost and environmental impact. It gives effect to the University’s Sustainable Managed Print Policy.

Print jobs are not printed immediately but are only printed when the user “releases” them at a printer in order to minimise waste and maximise security.

The Managed Print Service is provided by Cantec Ltd. (www.cantecireland.ie) who are the University’s sole supplier for printing and copying.

4) How do I obtain Managed Print Services for my department?

Contact Cantec ltd at 051 337012 or info@cantecireland.ie

The lead time, following this visit, to delivery and configuration of the device will be 2 – 4 weeks.

Printing and copying are charged for per page. A page is a side of a sheet of paper so one sheet, with printing on both sides, is 2 pages. The price includes toner and all other consumables but does not include paper which is to be provided by the department.

The costs, per page, for printing and copying are:

A4 black and white                €0.0078

A4 colour                              €0.0371

A3 black and white                €0.0078

A3 colour                              €0.0371

Invoices are issued electronically by Cantec, directly to your department, at the end of every quarter.

7) What print and paper formats are available?

  • A4
  • A3
  • colour
  • black and white

The paper size used is set in the application that you are printing from (usually in the “File, Print”/ Ctrl-P dialogue).

  • Print jobs sent to the UNIFLOW-MONO printer are printed in black and white by default.
  • Print jobs sent to the to the UNIFLOW-COLOUR printer are printed in colour by default.

It is however possible to change whether your print job is printed in colour or black and white at the printer when you are releasing it by selecting the print job and touching “Options” at the bottom of the screen.

8) Can I submit print jobs from my phone, tablet or other device? 

Yes, you can submit documents to print from any internet connected device by logging in at https://uprint.ucc.ie/ with your UCC credentials and uploading the documents you want to print.

9) What is UCC’s Sustainable Print Management Policy?

The Sustainable Print Management Policy is the basis for the operation of printing and copying in UCC. It aims to provide a top quality, secure service while controlling both environmental impact and cost.

This will be achieved by replacing, over time, smaller less efficient print/copy devices with larger, shared, centrally managed devices obtained through a competitively priced service that provides all of the University’s printing requirements.

The Sustainable Print Management Policy is available to download from the Procurement and Contracts Office website: https://www.ucc.ie/en/procurement/procurementpoliciesandprocedures/
