A new service might catch the eye of those who need to monitor the ink cartridge consumption of their printers.

Online-based product Printer Dashbord has recently been launched by print management services provider ThinPrint, which believes its free-to-use programme will provide users with an overview of their printer environment.

The firm's chief operating officer Charlotte Kunzell claimed the new service will allow people to minimise the length of computer downtime, easily observe ink levels and calculate how much their printer cartridges are costing.

"This solution is an absolute must for all those dealing with the topic of printer management, such as specialist printer retailers wanting to quickly gain an overview of their customers' situation," she added.

Based in Berlin, ThinPrint provides printer solutions across all industries to over 9,000 customers globally.

Its new offering also gives users the chance to order new printer cartridges and printer ink at the click of a mouse.
