The pcProx Plus is also available in an ultra slim version, which allows for easy and elegant installation in recessed compartments and is currently available for HP, Ricoh and Toshiba eStudio multi-function devices.

These readers, along with PaperCut MF print management software, create a secure print management solution that features authentication, pull printing, job accounting and charge back while enabling compliance with print policies.

ITS also provides a free card testing service whereby you simply send us the card and we will test and make sure that it is fully compatible with the appropriate reader and the PaperCut embedded application. If your customer’s card type is not listed above please do not hesitate to contact us.

Please note that not all card readers are compatible with all embedded solutions. Please contact ITS to discuss compatibility.
