Your school can recover the costs of printing and copying with an integrated expense management solution.

Why go with CashFREE schools?

Developed and proven in New Zealand, Konica Minolta’s cost recovery technology leads the market. Now it’s easy to put money back into your school budget.

Benefits for your school:

1. You can on-charge for student prints and copies at variable rates, generating revenue to cover the cost of paper and document production equipment.

2. Cost recovery reduces wastage and personal document production by making students and teachers accountable for their printing and copying.

3. The Konica Minolta cost recovery monitor can interface to your school’s existing accounting software, to provide a full audit trail.

4. Having an automated cost recovery system streamlines administration. There’s no cash handling involved; charging is accurate and consistent; administration staff aren’t required to oversee transactions

5. Usage reports can be generated for devices, users or departments, which assists with decision-making and budget planning.

6. Parents can add value to their child’s student user account online and have the knowledge of what that money will be spent on (food & drink, stationery, uniforms, school trips, copy & print, computer/internet use).

7. Gives students added security with PIN number access and reduces problems associated with card loss or theft, (as each student’s running total is stored on a central database).

8. Prompt teachers for department codes for accurate budgeting

9. Charge students and teachers at varying rates according to the output, e.g. for copying/printing by paper size, colour, B&W, duplex (you can establish up to 16 different price levels).

10. Use current style of student ID cards to provide access to user accounts.
