Scanning to email

We use Pharos Authentication to control Scanning to Email from our MFDs but we don't charge our users for the service. We do however charge for Copying and Printing.

I am assuming from what I have observed that Scanning to Email is the equivalent of a copy job as far as Pharos is concerned?


We charge £0.04 per page for copies.


Our Users can happily Scan to email for free - UNLESS they happen to have less than £0.04 credit. In this case the User gets an error at the device stating that they have insufficient funds to continue.


So, ironically, if you are more than £0.04 in credit you may scan to email for free, however if you are less than £0.04 in credit you may not scan to email at all.


Boiling that down: Wealthy? = free stuff  |  Broke? = Sweet Fanny Adams.


Sounds like a Tory manifesto.
