We’re a small Law Firm situated in the City of Roses in the Free State and we have been using Print Director for almost 5 years now. We are one of the happiest law firms in South Africa with this software. It is very convenient to use and a great way to save money. We are currently using the software for our printer and it helps a lot to determine how many prints and copies are made in a month, and helps to perform correct billing for clients. It makes it much easier to pay for our printer at the end of the month and our printer pays for itself, and the same goes for the telephone system using Print Director. We are very satisfied Clients of Print Director.
Print Director has been a delight to work with. It’s easy enough to maintain users, setting up of users and resetting of passwords. It’s made the process of users printing and releasing print jobs a breeze. Had a small problem with importing of a single user once and it was sorted out by support quickly and easily (phenomenal support).
Print Director has proven very useful, user-friendly, and secure in managing passwords, and managing reports for billing, etc. With our agents handling confidential documents, and making several prints and scans every day, a reliable and secure software solution is always welcome, but the best part of it has always been the technical support that has been offered. Blue Swift Technologies is always professional, and helpful. I highly recommend Blue Swift Technologies.
I can honestly say that there has not been a moment where we were ever sorry for purchasing Print Director. It’s the best thing since sliced bread. It is such a user friendly program and one cannot believe how much print costs we are able to recover through this program. It is unreal how much printing costs slipped through the cracks in the past. Furthermore your after sales service is absolutely fantastic!
Print Director has really made our printing and billing as well as keeping a proper database of our clients easier. It has enabled us to correctly bill our clients without the effort of having to physically go on each client’s file to count the total amount of work that was done. We are able to give our clients accurate amounts and proof of work done on each file which also means that it has reduced the time and expenditure spent on working on our files.
Once our users were made aware of how much that page you want to print, actually costs… our printing costs have dropped dramatically. Print Director has changed the mind-sets of our users and what needs to be printed.
Printing is a big expense that we want to monitor. For us it is important to be able to recoup costs by charging students for their printing, and also to be able to identify wasteful printing. Print Director has given us that ability. Students are issued with printing cards that they can top-up with credit when needed, putting the students in charge of their own printing. No more wasting teacher time printing for students. With Print Director’s extensive reporting ability, we can get an overview and understanding of our usage and are able to determine how to keep printing under control.
We have Blue Swift Technologies’ Print Director installed as an ad on to our PABX phone management system as well as our photocopiers and printers. The programme is an invaluable resource to the seamless recovery directly into our accounting software of our disbursements for telephone calls, printing and copying which is of importance to any attorneys’ business. Blue Swift Technologies is always ready to assist with queries to ensure that the programme is running correctly and efficiently. I would recommend the programme and Blue Swift Technology to anyone looking for a cost effective manner to recover disbursements.
At first we had some teething problems which was realised after the system was installed. As staff became familiar with the software application and how to make necessary changes, navigation became much more user friendly. The Print Director software and reports has definitely improved the management of expenses and operational costs within the organisation. Productivity and efficiency within the company has improved, streamlining processes. I am now able to monitor and keep a record of all asset performances as well as automated activity. Thanks again for the ongoing aftersales support and exceptional level of service. Much appreciated.
I can say that Blue Swift Technologies is very quick to respond and sort out any issues we have. The system he provides us with ensures that we recover all printing, copying and telephone costs from our clients, which is a great saving for us.
Print Director is a very useful tool, both for confidential printing and for keeping track of printing costs. The support service is excellent.

Print Director is fantastic, no problems experienced and works well in our environment. Highly recommended!
Print Director is an excellent financial tool whereby we can monitor who is printing what and the cost thereof. We have many separate entities within our business and each person has a specific building/project they are working on. We are able to allocate printing to each specific job, which then gets charged for. I also enjoy the drilling down facility when selecting reports. I can select via devise, department and user. I am able to pull any report at a click of a finger. The system is extremely efficient. We have saved money by advising staff to use certain printers based on needs by looking at each report. An excellent product and I highly recommend it!
Print Director enabled us to implement the following functionality:
Centrally control access to the printers and how it is used via Pin Codes
Track Printing and report on Usage
Allocate Costs to the originating User’s Department.
Works well… Support has always been excellent. Definitely value for the money that was spent on it.
Print Director is an effective printer management tool and its detailed monthly reporting assists our Finance team in expense allocation per department in terms of printer usage. It has also aided Finance in managing their budget process. In general, Print Director provided security in accessing these printers and its integration with Active Directory is a big PLUS.
Thank you for the great software you have developed, Print Director has already out performed our expectation. Since installation Print Director has reduced waste print, reduced cost, confidential documents are protected with the user’s unique PIN and follow me printing has been an absolute success. I would undoubtedly recommend your solution as it is proven value.
Print Director is excellent for keeping track of printing costs, reducing waste and providing comprehensive reports that include our telephone call costs. The support service received has been first-rate and immediate. I highly recommend Blue Swift Technologies.
We have been using BlueSwift’s Print Director since February 2015 and it has enabled us to allocate printing to specific project/job numbers in order for us to have a record of those costs. As we can now keep track of printing costs and we’re able to monitor printing it has also minimized unnecessary printing. We have been very happy with the quick response whenever we’ve had any queries or have needed something changed on our system. As everything is done remotely it means there is no interruption to our day to day operation or any delay in response.
The installation of Blue Swift Print Director exceeded our expectations by far. This affordable package allows print jobs to be stored and printed on demand by a multitude of users via the pin code system. Print waste has been significantly reduced and improved work flows and office efficiency has been achieved. Support service when required is fast and efficient.
A business requirement in setting a standard ecological footprint was raised with IT to investigate alternative solutions across all platforms which could lead to cost saving in the near future. Amongst others, one major concern was highlighted on the amount of paper and printer waste each area of this business produced. Multiple engagements with vendors were to assist with providing a solution and proof of concept, Print Director POC proved to meet all Direct Axis requirements. Functionalities implemented were account tracking and print tracking, reports and secure print release. Within the first month, print-outs were reduced by 30% as users could no longer print without leaving the prints by the printer. Detailed reports provided to departments was implemented which highlighted the misuse of the printers; this further reduces prints by 10% with departments quickly adhering to the new process.
Cost per copy was initiated in all reports for those users who had access to other printers in the business where the department could now allocate costs to other departments in the event users print to multiple printers. The total outcome with implementing Print Director resulted in less paper being procured, less printer hardware like toners purchased and most of all, less calls logged for faulty printers. An estimated R10 000 saving per month on paper was achieved due to the implementation of Print Director, thus meeting both an ecological green footprint and saving on costs.
Due to the engagements with Print Director developer and support, a relationship between client and vendor was quickly established with excellent turnaround time on break fixes and new implementations or upgrades. Spot calls for assistance were never deferred or turned down. Dealing with Blue Swift Technologies has been an exceptional experience every single time I required assistance, or just a refresher on settings.
In my honest opinion, this is a great application with positive support.
Print Director helps us a lot with controlling our Print releases, making it easier for users to release their documents and improving our workflow. Print Director has been stable since day one and its configuration is easy. We value it being a stable solution for our printing and reporting needs.
Print director is a brilliant programme. It is flexible, resource efficient and has a very user friendly interface. You will be amazed by the power and simplicity of this programme.

Our company has been using Blue Swift software for the past 2 years. We started off using it on our printers, then integrated it into our telephone system. Very easy to operate, very easy to navigate and very user friendly. Reporting side of system is brilliant, various reporting options, diagrams and plenty of exporting options are given. A masterpiece software that delivers great results across several key areas of our business.
Print director has made a huge difference in managing our costs and lowering them substantially. The weekly and monthly reports have assisted us in identifying abusers and problem areas. After the initial configuration and tweaking of the software to our company’s needs, it has been a very stable product. There are many options and features to explore. The follow-me printing in particular, as you can release your job at any configured printer and also delete unnecessary jobs at the printer. I would definitely recommend your product.
We are a large law firm based in the Cape Town CBD. The switch from our previous billing software to Print Director has been seamless. We use it on our printers and telephone system and the monthly rental is very affordable. It is very user friendly and the technical support is absolutely fabulous. The very occasional glitches that we have encountered since installation, about 2 years ago, are sorted out in no time by Colin and his team. We are very satisfied with Print Director and have not looked back since installing it. I am happy to recommend Print Director to future clients.
