            If I understood what you're asking for correctly ...

             

            Organization                             Brigham Young University - Idaho           Pharos College
            Avg. Pages/Year      11.9mil/year                                 3.7mil/year
            Number of Users                                17000+                                 16000+
            Number of print devices                      420                                     56
            Student/ Employee/ Both                    Both                            Both

             

            I'm not sure just how many employees we have (it is constantly changing and growing) and our enrollment is currently on a constant uphill climb.  As for the number of pages being an "average" ... campus population is constantly growing thus the numbers are constantly growing.  These numbers are what we are at currently as of end of 2014.

                    Just came across this one after I replied to the quota thread.

                     

                    Organization                                           SUNY Oswego

                    Avg. Pages/Month or Pages/Year            ~2.5million/year

                    Number of Users                                    The system has ~40k but that's including all the alumni and other accounts we don't expire. Active though, more around ~12k

                    Number of print devices                          Currently 35 Devices

                    Student/ Employee/ Both                        Student overwhelmingly, Faculty some, and staff rarely though they do have quota as well.
