NORMAN — Free app to cut waste

Cartridge World is offering a new free software app, called PrintEco, to reduce the amount of wasted paper and cut paper costs by as much as 24 percent. With the click of a button, the PrintEco app optimizes print documents and reduces paper waste. The app automatically reads document size and offers reformatting options to reduce the page count. The free software, available to businesses and consumers at www.CartridgeWorld.com/PrintEco, can save hundreds of wasted printed pages annually.

Succeeding in business

Chickasaw Nation governor Bill Anoatubby, speaking before East Central University’s Oklahoma Business Week participants, said the nation he leads is an example of how to succeed in business through passion and partnership.

“When you get a call to serve, the path it takes you on just might change your life. It certainly did mine,” the governor said. “We have a number of partnerships we are very proud of. One of which is right here at East Central University. Partnerships provide opportunities for more success — more than you can usually achieve on your own.”
