1. What is TGS 10?

Celiveo Track-GreenSaver (TGS) 10 is an independent reporting tool of Celiveo that helps create detailed reports from the data collected from printer and MFP usage. These reports make it possible to monitor printing costs and influence user behavior. Detailed web-based reports help to identify sources of waste and fine-tune the printing environment to reduce costs and prevent misuse. You can also use the recorded data to forecast costs allowing you to better plan your budget.

Reports are created based on the following data collected:

  • Network data collected includes: user name, workstation name, server name, printer name, and printer group.
  • Print job data collected includes: time/date printed, document title, document type, page count, sheet count, copy count, page size, print job size, black and white output, color output, duplex, etc.
    The SQL Server tracking database is in flat format with one event – one record. The table name is dbo.TrackingData in the SJPS database.
    That table can easily be queried with big data analysis and reporting software. For those who prefer, Celiveo propose its standalone Celiveo TrackGreen Saver software (TGS 10), a web application that computes the tracking table to generate dashboard and usage reports.
