  • User allocated quotas or budgets
  • shared account budgets
  • or a user-pays upfront model

Group memberships in your user directory can serve as a basis for fine-grained access control.

The Canon embedded solution is developed in-house by the PaperCut Software development team. This ensures that the copier interface is consistent with the workstation print interface, meaning users only have to learn one system and one set of terminology. This embedded solution offers the same level of tracking for copying as PaperCut does for printing. Jobs may be allocated to shared accounts that represent departments, projects or clients.

  • Shared accounts are optional - some users can have a simplified interface while others get access to search and select accounts.
  • Shared account access is easily controlled using Active Directory/LDAP groups
  • Real-time account and user level reporting.

If enabled, shared accounts can be accessed using a number of on-screen convenient methods:

  • Selection from list
  • Quick entry via code/PIN
  • Search by keyword

Users are configured once and are provided with a consistent experience for both network printing and off-the-glass MFP use.
