We have had lot of unique, rare and quality software reviewed and given away over the last few days as part of TechPP Mega Christmas Giveaway. They include WinAutomation, Axialis IconWorkshop, Crossover for Mac/Linux, SWF to Video converter, RVS 2010 Home Lux, Speedbit Video Accelarator amongst others.
We would like to continue this trend for today’s giveaway as well and hence we have Antamedia Print Manager on board! Antamedia Print Manager is a print management software for internal enforcement of printing rules and policies, run by a central control panel and optionally offering a paid printing service.
According to Antamedia, any medium to large company can easily save 35% of their printing costs with Antamedia Print Manager, with some smaller companies reaching savings up to 64%. After Print Manager is installed, you can change the rules. Not by sending a memo or by posting notices that get ignored but with a simple push-button software control panel on a single PC.
You choose how many pages are allowed, if color is allowed, what times printing is available and so on. You can control this by user group, by individual, by location, even down to a specific printer. Setting the rules is the only configuration required. When you’re ready, decide on the rules, set them and you’re done.

Antamedia Print Manager Lite – Free Licenses Giveaway
Frankly speaking, I thought a lot of times about having this giveaway, since it is not something required for daily use and hence not exactly something a home user would need. But then, this is a professional and highly useful tool for those readers of TechPP who own a small firm or an Internet cafe and as one of the leading technology blogs, it is very important to promote a quality software and at the same time let the users know about such an utility available in the market.
We have 25 free licenses of Antamedia Print manager Lite, each license costing $99. So that is almost $2500 worth of licenses!! Since this is a rare and highly professional software, the giveaway would run for a week (instead of usual 24 hours). Leave a comment below mentioning why you would need a license.
This giveaway closes 12pm CET, 23rd December.
Martin is giving away Paragon Drive Backup 2010 SE for all. Make sure you grab a license as well.
