Konica Business Technologies Announces Partnership With Equitrac Corporation, Offering Advanced Document Accounting to Customers
Konica Business Technologies, Inc., a provider of digital imaging solutions and a subsidiary of Konica Corporation, announced a partnership with Equitrac Corporation, a provider of Document Accounting Systems (DAS) and automated Cost Recovery solutions. Through this new relationship Konica will now be able to offer its customers Equitrac's solutions comprised of hardware and software systems to track, record and report their printer and copier activity, including its Printer Accounting Server (PAS).
PAS is an advanced network print tracking solution that enables users to monitor, measure and manage transactions from across the enterprise, storing this information in a centralized database, and providing customers with advanced data analysis and decision support functionality. The system includes over 70 reports to aid in making equipment, usage and deployment decisions. PAS offers a complete solution for hardcopy Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) management by tracking usage patterns, collecting copier data, and offering flexible methods to charge printing costs incurred by users.
PAS also integrates with PageControl Station(TM), an advanced Ethernet-based device, which easily connects to networked or standalone copiers to track walk-up copying and record the transaction in real-time. In addition, PageControl Station works with the PAS secure document release option to provide secure network printing by holding jobs at the print server until released using a PIN or magnetic swipe card.
