Print Management on OS X

Okay, what’s the best print management system for OS X? We’d like an audit system that would keep a count-down of around 1000 pages a semester per student, and remove pages from the account as they print. Color prints should cost 10 pages.

We can do this with PCounter on PCs pretty easily, with a small client that pops up a window per user per print. For PCs from home, the print jobs have to be authorized via a web page, which shows the individual account.

TypewriterThe only problem is that OS X machines in PCounter don’t have a client option, and every single print job would have to be authorized via a web page. If we have to consider this, we will, but we’d rather have a solution that was as easy on PCs as on Macs, even if we had PCounter for the PCs and something else, even Xserve based, for macs.

Any suggestions?
