VCC hardware terminals provide MFD integration to enable tracking, charging or billing of "off the glass" copying.

VCC terminals are devices that plug into an MFD via an access port and then interface with PaperCut MF via your ethernet network. VCC terminals are a hardware neutral solution and work with most multi-functional copier and printer makes and models both young and old.
