PrintNet is provided with a payment station that collects the prints sent from the client stations. Using specific authorization procedures, users may view the documents being printed, check amounts to be paid, change selected printing parameters, decide which printer to use for the selected job and pay with a prepaid card or via their account (credit on database).

Self-Service Payment

PrintNet provides users with a system to pay for printing with a prepaid card or via their account (credit on local database).

Self-service printing payment is directly carried out by users. This reduces timeconsuming work for library staff who no longer need to count prints and handle money.

Everything whit a card!

PrintNet allows smooth printing and photocopying management, as well as payment with the same prepaid card.

The prepaid cards may be recharged at a distributor, thus providing an automated system where users are completely independent and free to use the service.

DEFINITION OF PRINTING COST PARAMETERS

PrintNet provides a centralized management interface where the administrator may set printing costs on the basis of different formats (A3, A4, Black/White, Colour) and select the payment method.


USER MANAGEMENT AND NUMBER OF PRINTS

PrintNet allows the administrator to access the User database and to organize at user group level both the number of prints and the assigned printers.


REPORTING AND STATISTICS

PrintNet allows the administrator to view detailed and summarized data on all printing operations carried out over a certain period of time by a user, by a group of users, by a printer and by a group of printers.


PAYMENT VIA PREPAID CARD

PrintNet is compatible with Cartadis® payment systems with prepaid cards (disposable or rechargeable). By connecting the Cartadis TCRS device to the PrintStation, printing costs are deducted from the prepaid cards. The same card may be used to pay for photocopies.


REDIRECTION OF PRINTING QUEUES

PrintNet optimizes printing costs by redirecting printing queues towards more suitable printers according to certain criteria (no. of pages to be printed, colour settings, etc.). The administrator configures system via a centralized management interface.
