Toshiba MFD Embedded

PaperCut MF provides integration with Toshiba MFDs, enabling the tracking and billing of "off the glass" copying, faxing and scanning. The solution uses Toshiba devices' built-in touch screen to provide a rich set of application features for walk-up copier, fax and scan usage, including:

  • End user authentication including integration with single sign-on environments such as Active Directory, Open Directory, eDirectory, LDAP and others
  • Optional proximity and swipe card authentication (via USB based card readers)
  • Group-based access control to the device and color copying
  • Monitoring and control of photocopying (quotas, charging, allocation and logging)
  • Allocation of usage to accounts/departments/cost-centers/projects
  • Releasing print jobs from a hold/release queue (secure printing)

authentication

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!

  • Integrate with:
    • Microsoft Active Directory
    • Apple Open Directory
    • Novell eDirectory
    • Other LDAP, NIS or POSIX environments
  • Optionally authenticate with swipe cards, proximity cards and optional PINs for extra security.
  • Use your organization's logo and colors scheme.

device access

Protect your valuable Toshiba MFDs from usage by unauthorized staff or visitors or limit expensive color copying to selected members of your organization.

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

track and control copying, faxing and scanning

  • Charge different types of copying at different rates
  • Restrict access to color copying
  • All usage reported centrally in the PaperCut logs
  • Optionally apply quotas to limit what users can copy/fax/scan

shared accounts

The Toshiba embedded solution offers the same level of tracking for copying as PaperCut does for printing. Jobs may be allocated to a 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

  • Search by keyword

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

Find Me printing, also known as "Follow Me" or "Pull Printing", provides users in environments with several identical multi-function devices to print to a single virtual global queue.
