CZ Copier Tracking Software (Required) is a powerful centralized copy manager  & copy counter that help automate and simplify the administration of copier or MFC (Multi Functional Copier). It is an easy to use copy management software that allows you to monitor and track all copying activity, charge the copy jobs by entering the account number (PIN), control and authenticate who is copying, how much is being copied, analyze and identify the cost of copying and eliminate wasted paper across your entire organization. It has debit mode and credit mode. In the debit mode, CZ Copier Tracking Software keeps track of account quotas (number of copies assigned to users) or balance. When user quotas are exceeded, copy jobs are canceled automatically. In credit mode, if the number of copies exceeds the maximum allowable limit per copy session specified for a copier, copy jobs are cancelled automatically. In both modes, the software will keep track of each copy made and store them in the database including: name of the user who copy, destination copier name, number of copies made, total cost, copy request time and date.

Virtual Cash Controller hardware (Required) The VCC hardware is connected to a copier or MFC (Multi Functional Copier) to actually enable or disable copier machine. It lets you eliminate propriety debit cards and migrate to an accounts-based system that automatically tracks and controls copying activity of all your copiers from a single computer. The copier interface supports major brands.
