library Thanks for the free trial of Release Station. We are very happy with it. I don't know if I could have justified spend the money if I couldn't see it in action. I know that already we have saved on many, many copies that patrons were just walking off with as well as copies they looked at, didn't like, and then threw away. I really appreciate that companies like yours develop affordable solutions for small libraries. I started out looking at some very expensive release systems and was thrilled to find yours.

school The Release Station has made a big impact at The American University of Rome. Before installing Release Station our printing system was very unreliable resulting in excessive paper waste. Now we run three user-mode "Release-Stations" in two computer labs. Our paper waste has decreased by 40% when compared to figures of three years ago, notwithstanding a 20% increase in our student body. The American University of Rome now has 550 students from all over the world, and we will continue to use Release Station to manage our printing services.
