  • We log our print jobs but rarely check the logs.

    If I find a high page count color print on the printer I write the persons name in the corner and put the print in a highly visible place in the plotter room. Small print counts and B/W prints are ignored.

    We are an employee owned company with employee stock option plan (ESOP). Non-business use affects the profitability of the business which affects the ESOP.

  • Missing option for never. The more our staff is familiar with our products the better they can assist customers. I think forbidden fruit causes more problems and a little personal use is good for moral. If a big concern, use an accounting package, give all uses x number of personal copies and bill after that.

  • I view this as one of those things that's just going to happen.  Employees are going to take office supplies, they're going to goof off on their computer on company time, and they're going to print personal documents on the printer.  It's the cost of doing business...to a point.  If we saw a sudden uptick in the average usage for a machine, then we'd become curious.  Obviously if we catch someone printing copies of their 500 page screenplay, then we'd have to address it.  But concert tickets?  The cost of a page or two off an MFC is pennies.  There's no ROI for us there.
