Can you describe the recharge card holders process a bit more? What technology is being used for this?
Do users have to authenticate to use the device. If so is it connectect with the recharging system.
Users load the card with money is spent by the cardholder and tells the credits they have and the copies they have left but not authenticated or validated with any server.
They put the card into the card that has coupled the machine reads the credits they have left and make photocopies leaves until they run out.
Now we want to install a system that controls the printing copying and usb and you have to validate.
We would like to make it compatible with the cards we have if possible.
So if you can live auditron was saying and the card holder we have.
Regards and thanks in advance.
Unfortunalety with your description I am not able to access what technology/ application is in use. Therefore not able to understand how the device is configured to work with it and make possible to "machine reads the credits they have left and make photocopies leaves until they run out".
If you are still able to provide more information please refer to the questions below:
Quick anwser would be that it is possible to use accounting, if its not in use by other methods. Internal Accounting and Xerox Standard Accounting, would be internal option to each device. Management of this solution is done on a device basis and it is not centralized. With this, you would be able to account the number of copies and prints done for each user/group.
To use this you will have to create users on the device. This users would have to authenticate on the device before any action in order for the device to detect who to associate the activity with.
