The program cuts costs by 40 percent by reducing paper and toner usage

Irvine-based Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. has teamed up with Adobe to develop and release Adobe LeanPrint, a desktop software program that saves paper, ink and toner when printing documents.

LeanPrint optimizes page layout, color and formatting to save an average of 40 percent of the cost of paper and toner, and tracks these savings in a status bar. The software’s plugins for Microsoft and Adobe software, as well as Web browsers, provide easy access to the alternative printing method.

Instead of shrinking documents, the software arranges text in columns and prints graphs and charts in black and white patterns to conserve ink and paper.

“Like Adobe, Toshiba is focused on helping businesses print smarter. That’s why we joined forces to bring LeanPrint to market and why Toshiba is proud to be Adobe’s first technology partner for LeanPrint,” said Bill Melo, vice president of marketing, services & solutions for Toshiba. “Together, Toshiba and Adobe have pioneered a new science of printing less. Using LeanPrint, documents are more elegant, readable and shareable through intelligent technology that optimizes the content. In the end, LeanPrint promises to revolutionize the way we all print at home and in the office by saving time, money and ultimately the environment.”

“Adobe’s goal is to bring LeanPrint’s cost savings to as many businesses and individual customers as possible,” said Raman Nagpal, senior director and general manager, print and scan business at Adobe. “We’re excited to join forces with Toshiba and work with customers who want to streamline workflows and increase efficiency in all printing jobs, large and small.”

A 30-day free trial of LeanPrint is available at business.toshiba.com.
