Ink saving,4d colour conversion

Hey guys,anyone implemented any colour conversion software that should save on ink? If so what are the results so far?
Im talking about software  recognising greyscale and converting it to black instead of using cmy  :)

We run Kodak Prinergy and apply a device link profile when pages process that GCRs all files. We have been doing this for about 8 years. It does save a lot of ink.

I have not seen software that that converts cmyk grey to just black.
