Xerox Embedded enables tracking, monitoring and charging of copying, faxing and scanning additionally to providing secure print release when users authenticate at the device.(Note: Print release is performed as a printer on the network. Secure Print Release is perform on EIP2 enabled devices.)
PaperCut integrates with Xerox MFDs in three ways:
Xerox Secure Access EIP2 - Available on recent devices supporting the latest EIP2 Xerox Secure Platform which allow for secure print release from job list.
Xerox Secure Access EIP1 - Available on recent devices from the US and Europe supporting Xerox Secure Access-XSA and EIP1.
Xerox Network Accounting - Older devices that only support Network Accounting/JBA with "Off-Box-Authentication" and do not support XSA.
MFP Xerox Display Interface.
Integrating your Copier Multifunction Device using PaperCut Embedded Applications provides many features and benefits for Walk-up Copies, faxes and scans, such as:
Single sign-on Authentication
Card ID Readers Integration via USB standard MFD Port.
Group-based access control to the device and color copying
Releasing Print Jobs securely (Hold and Release queue set up)
Find Me Functionality for users to release at any device.
Activity reporting against departments accounts/client/cost-centers/projects
The embedded solution interacts with the PaperCut server using a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and web services based protocols.
PaperCut MF embedded application tour for Xerox MFD
PaperCut is a single integrated solution where copier usage is managed together with network printing all in one system. Users have a single account and administrators have the same level of administration for all services.
Leverage your existing single sign-on infrastructure by allowing users to log in with the same username and password used elsewhere on the network. No need to remember and maintain multiple logins!
Microsoft Active Directory
Apple Open Directory
Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
Optional authentication Window when using HID Card (Xerox Secure Access ONLY)
Xerox Secure Access Authentication Windows
Soft keyboard at the Xerox device
Service Home screen
Protect your valuable Xerox MFDs from usage by unauthorized staff or visitors or limit expensive color copying to selected members of your organization.
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 Xerox embedded solution offers the same level of tracking copying as PaperCut does for printing. Each job may be allocated to a shared account that may represent a department, project or client.
Shared account access at the Xerox MFD is possible by entering the share/Department account Code/PIN.
Access to shared accounts is easily administrated and can leverage Active Directory/LDAP groups.
Real-time account and user level reporting.
Users are configured once and are provided with a consistent experience for both network printing and off-the-glass MFP use.
Charging to a shared account while printing from a workstation
Charging to a shared account while copying
Only available Xerox MFDs supporting XSA and HID Network Card Reader.
Find Me Print also known as Find Me printing provides users with the option to use any multi-function device,
an environment where users send the jobs to a single virtual global queue and then they walk up and log on to
any Xerox Secure Access with a Network Card Reader nearby to have ALL their print job pulled from the global
queue and printed on the spot. Note: AUTO Fast Release of print jobs is only available on Xerox devices
using a Network Card Reader (HID) with the PaperCutMF Xerox Secure Access Option. Users do not see a
list of jobs on the display; instead ALL prints jobs in the Global Queue for the user are released after authentication.
Release methods include:
Automatic release on log in with HID (Xerox Secure Access Only)
Secure release (When using HID Readers with Xerox secure Access Only)
Upon successful login you will be presented with the Print Release dialog
