Pcounter Swipe is an add-on component for Pcounter (any version) that enables secure print release and allows follow/pull printing for any network printer. One great feature is that it does not require an extra network drop at the printer!
About Pcounter Swipe
Pcounter Swipe provides a point of authentication to specified printers via networked card readers associated with the Pcounter print queues. The card reader assembly includes a pass-through ethernet port used by the printer.
All printer activity is tracked, logged, and controlled through the Pcounter server. After print jobs are submitted and paused, users walk approach the printer of their choice and authenticate by swiping their card on a networked card reader next to the printer.
It works with any printer, and can work for simple printers in a mixed environment of MFP's with embedded software terminals and printers. No complex integration with printer/copier hardware.
Pcounter can supply the card-readers with broad range of reader technologies , more info here.
