ALL of the ePrinters in Biology have been replaced with WEPA print stations. These new printers allow us to do the following:
- Control who has access to our printing budget (previously we could not block people from other departments from accessing and using our e-print stations)
- Reduce the departmental cost and waste by setting printing quotas per user thus encouraging everyone to print less and use the copiers for when it is necessary to have multiple copies. You can make 8 copies for the same price as printing one sheet.
- Expand our green initiative using PrintReleaf (https://support.wepanow.com/sustainability/) a Global Reforestation Project
- Enable the sharing of printers between departments thereby freeing up resources for other IT initiatives.
- Reduce printer downtimes due to hardware failures (WEPA provides service within 24 hours for any repairs needed)
- Enhance printing services, WEPA supports MAC, WINDOWS and LINUX Operating systems
- allows us to print from anywhere, anytime using any device
- supports printing directly from web browsers (just log in via https://www.wepanow.com) Dropbox, USB, etc
To install these new printers please connect to the shared folder on Dropbox located here: Biology_EA Shared Folder/WEPA Printing instructions
- Follow the instruction for the Duke ID card integration (this only has to be followed the first time you configure your Duke Card- you will need your Duke Card and if you have Dual authentication turned on you will need your phone and or temporary codes)
- Follow the instructions for installation of WEPA printers on your computer
The Biology and Evolutionary departments support 8 WEPA Print stations located throughout the Biology and French Family Science center.
