So you've just hit 'Print' on your document at your desk. You wander over to the printer to pick up your print out which happens to be confidential.
You are confronted with a mass of neglected and forgotten printouts. Paper has been left in the tray, on the floor and piled on top of the printer. Somewhere in there is your confidential document! Trying to find your document in this 'paper swamp' is going to be tricky, especially as you think some other documents have been printed by another user since you hit 'Print'.

Our bizhub range of printers offer a very useful solution to this common situation. You may well be familiar with 'contactless' payments with your credit or debit card at many retailers. This solution from Konica Minolta is very similar to that concept.
With your ID card and an IC Card reader installed on the printer, your print job will only be printed when you present your ID card at the printer. Each card is registered to the user and once registered by the printer, your print job will be printed. It's just a simple flash of the card.
It's a seamless process and eliminates forgotten and unwanted print jobs. Not only will it clear up your printer and prevent a 'paper swamp', but will ensure your confidential documents are only picked up or seen by you. It'll also eliminate waste (and save some trees in the process!)
