With uniFLOW, Finance Directors can chargeback users, departments, groups, or cost centers for the costs of printing, track cost savings and the environmental impact of a printer or copier fleet, easily generate reports to assist in financial planning, and manage printer, copier, and consumable payments to the hardware supplier.
Track all output costs:
uniFLOW uses detailed charging profiles to allow differing costs for different printers, users, groups, or cost centers. uniFLOW calculates prices for printing, copying, faxing, scanning, and all print room jobs.
Price profiles, budgets, and multi-level cost centers:
Price profiles can be created in uniFLOW to account for different types of charges, such as color and black/white printing, page sizes and paper trays, single-sided and double-sided printing, and finishing options.
Users, groups, and cost centers can be given budgets to stop or restrict printing – for example, color printing is stopped if funds run out.
Budgets can also be automatically updated or updated via a user payment. Multi-level cost centers can be used to allow for easy usage chargeback. Also, users can be automatically prompted every time they print a job or use the MFP to make a copy.
