Accounting allows you to track your postage costs by categories. These categories can represent whatever is appropriate for your organization, such as departments, people, locations, and projects.

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.
