Printer Accounting Server (PAS) Enterprise Edition
Most copier cost measurement is based on “clicks”, printing costs are normally not accounted for. PAS takes care of this problem allowing administrator s to see printing costs but also the printing patterns of individuals and departments. PAS eliminates the need and cost of client-side software, as PAS is a server-based solution.
With PAS dedicated charging can be applied, you can allocate the charges according to print quotas, timed quotas, users/department. The heaviest users can be identified, but also the heaviest used machines, provoking the need to change these heavily used printers with higher volume machines!
Secure Document Release Module (SDR)
The SDR module enhances the safety of network printing environments, by preventing unauthorised users from picking up or viewing other users documents!
SDR holds incoming network print jobs at the security print server. The print job is released using a Network Transaction station. Therefore, the user does not have to collect the job as it is printed in case of unwanted disclosure.
For extra security print jobs are deleted from the secure print server queue within the permitted time, allocated by the administrator.
Rules based printing, with SDR enables the Administrator to set rules for printing, for instance, set priorities in the queue manager, hold or delete print jobs by user or group. Rules based printing eliminates, unnecessary printing, which reduces network traffic.
Aficio Counter Manager (ACM)
ACM provides total output volume (copiers, prints and faxes), per defined period, and counter information for Ricoh Aficio products. It can be utilised for remote counter management (leasing/facilities) or internal accounting.
With ACM you can manage the following:
- Copy/print/fax count by device
- Aficio information e.g. names, serial number, IP address.
- Usage history from start of usage to present or by specified period
- Take over counter information when device location changes
ACM creates 15 additional reports to PAS’s existing 70 to create a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation tool. These reports will be sent at specified time periods to allocated recipients. This information provides invaluable cost management information. ACM will provide reports per machine to identify which peripheral is being overused or needs to be changed if necessary.
