Print Job Accounting


Print Job Accounting

Print Job Accounting is an optional application for OKI printers and MFPs which provides an accurate picture of print/copy activity by tracking the output of individual users, workgroups and departments. It lets you assign cost values to the documents printed, including those printed in colour and duplex, and enables you to use that information for department billing or client bill-back purposes.

Cost control

The easy-to-use application captures details on colour vs. mono pages, number of pages, page size, paper types and paper trays used, document name, and total time spent on document output, by job name, person or department. It will even assign costs for supplies. Access levels can be assigned by user name, PC/server name, application, file name and website URL. Once policies are configured, the Print Job Accounting software determines how, or if incoming jobs will print. All policies are password-protected and authentication is available only through the system manager for added security.
  • Visibility and control of print and copy usage, by user or department quotas
  • Educated decisions on device consolidation
