Press Release Summary: Print Control Company Software Shelf Joins with GuideMeGreen
to Protect the Environment through Print Manager Plus Software

Press Release Body: Printer Management Software 'Print Manager Plus' officially a
'green' company as it saves over 150,000 trees a month worldwide

'Print Manager Plus' makes major contribution towards reducing global wastage of
paper and ink

Clearwater, Florida and London: The printer control company, Software Shelf
International, has been included in the international green online directory
GuideMeGreen which lists companies and charities that offer ethical and
environmentally-friendly products and services.

Software Shelf's print management tool, Print Management Plus, limits users' ability
to print their files by setting quotas or restricting printing by file size and
type. The result is a dramatic reduction in wasted paper and ink which not only
saves a vast amount of cost the organisation, but is also great for the environment.

One user of Print Management Plus recently conducted a study into how much paper the
software was actually saving them. The Jeanne d'Arc Technical College in Rennes,
France which installed the software 2 years ago has 1200 students, 130 staff, 350
workstations and 14 networked printers. They report a saving of between 200 to 300
reams of paper per month, which together with savings on ink, electricity, printer
repair and maintenance equates to a saving of about 15,000 Euros a year.

David Oglaza, founder of says "I was astounded when I saw how
many thousands of trees Print Manager Plus is saving and we very much welcome
Software Shelf to the site."

According to the environmental site Conservatree, 17 reams of paper can be made from
one tree. As there are about 10,000 schools using Print Manager Plus worldwide
(each with an average of 1100 students), each school using Print Manager Plus is
saving around 15 trees a month. In total, that represents a saving of 150,000 trees
every month among its school customers alone; this figure does not even take into
account the thousands of companies that also use this print limiting software.

"The positive impact that Print Manager Plus has on the environment is far reaching.
Not only does it reduce paper and ink consumption, but it also reduces the amount
of waste paper going to landfill as well as CO2 emissions as a result of the reduced
printer running time. It thoroughly deserves to be known, from now on, as a 'green'
product and Software Shelf has truly earned its listing in GuideMeGreen," says Danny
Byrnes, Software Shelf's product manager.
