Accounting allows you to track your postage costs by categories. These categories can represent whatever is appropriate for your organisation: departments, people, locations, projects, etc.

The number of accounts available on your system is based on the amount purchased or supplied with your model. Your system stores the following information for each account:
  • A name up to 15 alphanumeric characters long.
  • An account number.
  • The count total. This is the total number of pieces of mail charged to an account since it was last cleared.
  • The value total. This is the total amount of postage charged to an account since it was last cleared.
  • An account password.
