Installing Account Track enables you to collectively manage multiple users on an account basis. Account authentication information is managed internally by this machine.
A password can be set by account to restrict users from using this machine. Also, this function allows you to restrict available functions or manage the usage status of this machine by account.
You can use a combination of user authentication and account track to manage each user for each department. For example, you can allow a company staff member belonging to a certain department to print but not allow another member belonging to another department to print. Also, you can count the number of printed sheets by department to encourage each department to develop an awareness of costs. You can log in to this machine simply by entering the user name. There is no need to specify the account.
