SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE 11
3 SafeQ administrationoverview
As SafeQ administrator, you are responsible for managing the seven main
components of the SafeQ system, as shown in the illustration on this page.
The chapters in this guide contain information about how to perform the
tasks for each of the seven main areas.

Chapter 3. SafeQ administrationoverview
12 SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE
About cost centers
Cost centers enable you to track, control, and account print services by
unit typically departments (for example: Marketing and Human Resources.)
NOTE: Cost centers are typically used for departments. Billing codes are
used for tracking, controlling, and accounting by project.
Each user is a member of one and only one cost center.
Each cost center can have different settings. For example, members of the
Marketing cost center might be allowed to use credit and to make a large
number of color prints; whereas members of the Human Resources cost
center might not use credit and might have a lower quota for color prints.
For more information, see Managing cost centers on page 76.
About projects and billing codes
Billing codes enable costs to be tracked and allocated by project. Users select
the project from a list when they make prints or copies. You can set up billing
codes for specific projects such as a marketing campaign or a project for a
customer.
SafeQ reports can include information about expenses for each project.
For more information, see Managing projects/billing codes on page 115.
About PUK codes
PUK codes are used with SafeQ Terminal Professional and SafeQ Terminal
UltraLight to simplify assigning cards to users accounts.
If a PUK has been generated, a user who has a new (unassigned) card swipes
the card at the terminal. The terminal then displays a message asking the
user to enter the PUK code. After the user enters the PUK code, SafeQ
assigns the card to the users account.
You can add a PUK code to a users account. (See page 75.)

Chapter 3. SafeQ administrationoverview
SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE 13
About quotas
You can set quotas that limit the number and type of prints or copies that
can be made. You can specify that when the quotas limit is reached, no
more prints or copies can be made until the quota is refreshed.
You can set quotas for users, devices, and/or cost centers. When a user
authenticates, SafeQ checks quotas in the following order:
1. Device
2. Cost center
3. User
Quotas can be made on an instant basis or can be refreshed on a monthly
basis.
Hypothetical examples:
User quotas
Example 1: A users quota specifies that he can make only 50 color prints or
copies each month. After he makes 50 color prints or copies, he cant make
any more color prints or copies until the first day of the next month.
Example 2: An employee who has exceeded her B/W quota cannot log on to
the Copy menu on any MFP in the company because the SafeQ administrator
has enabled the Restrict logging on device option. The employee can now
make only color print jobs until her B/W quota is refreshed.
Device quotas
Example 1: A quota for a B/W network printer in the HR Department allows a
maximum of 800 B/W prints to be made each month. Once the quota is
reached, no more copies can be made on that printer until the next month.
Example 2: A company has an MFP that can be used by all employees. A hard
quota for B/W prints/copies has been set for the MFP. When the quota is
exceeded, employees can make only color prints/copies on that MFP.

Chapter 3. SafeQ administrationoverview
14 SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE
Cost center quotas
Example 1: A cost center for the Marketing Department has a quota that
limits the maximum number of color copies for that cost center to 300 per
month. When a total of 300 color copies has been made, members of that
cost center cannot make any more color copies until the next month.
Example 2: A backoffice has one color MFP, which is used by employees from
cost center 1 and cost center 2. The SafeQ administrator has enabled the
Restrict logging on device option. Cost center 2 has exceeded its color
print/copy quota, so its users cannot log on to the MFPs Copy menu and
they can only print B/W pages. Users from cost center 1, however, have not
exceeded their quota, so they can continue to use all the MFPs features,
until either the quota for cost center 1 or the MFPs quota has been
exceeded.
Soft and hard quotas
There are two types of quotas:
With soft quotas, SafeQ notifies the user or the SafeQ administrator via
email when their quotas are reached, but the user can continue to print
or copy.
When hard quotas are reached, SafeQ notifies the user or the SafeQ
administrator via email, but the user may or may not be able to continue
to print or copy, depending on whether or not other quotas available to
the user, cost center, or device have been exceeded.
Hard quotas can be further restricted by the setting for the Restrict
logging on device option in the SafeQ print system settings. (See page
42.)

* The setting for the Restrict logging on device option in the SafeQ print system settings can provide further
restrictions on user access. (See page 42.)
Revising quotas
If you revise a quota downward during the instant or monthly period, the
quota is reduced according to the method you use to change the quota.
If you edit the quota, the amount of the quota already used is subtracted
from the new quota. For example, if you initially set a users monthly quota
at 50 copies and he makes 20 copies, then you edit the quota to change the
amount to 40, the user can now make only 20 more copies during that
months period.
If you delete the quota and then create a new one, the entire amount of the
new quota is available. In the example above, if you enabled the quota with
a new amount of 40, the user would be able to make 40 copies, even though
he had already made 20 in the quota period.
For more information, see:
Setting user quotas on page 72.
Creating cost centers, the Quotas tab, page 78.
Adding devices, the Quotas tab, page 90.

Chapter 3. SafeQ administrationoverview
16 SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE
About roles
Users roles:
Determine which MFPs and printers they are permitted to use, as well as
which features of those MFPs and printers are available to them.
Determine which SafeQ features they are permitted to use (such as
reports and project management).
Each user can have multiple roles.
You select the role or roles to assign each user from a list of pre-defined
roles. (See Assigning roles to users on page 69.)
SafeQ Instant Edition includes 5 roles that define which MFPs/printers are
available to the user, and which features (such as color or B/W) are
permitted. You set up those roles when you add a device (an MFP or a
printer). (See Adding devices, the Access tab, page 89.)
SafeQ Instant Edition includes 8 roles that define users rights to use certain
SafeQ or printing features (such as project manager and force duplex).
Viewing the list of roles
1. On the SafeQ Dock, click the User Management button.
2. Select the User Roles tab.

For more information, see Assigning roles to users on page 69.

Chapter 3. SafeQ administrationoverview
SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE 17
About forcing B/W or duplex printing
SafeQ Instant Edition includes predefined roles that restrict users to B/W or
duplex printing. See Assigning roles to users on page 69.
SafeQ notifies users that their jobs will be printed in B/W or duplex. See
Changing the text for automatic emails on page 45.
NOTE: In order to use this feature, your system must include a license for
the Cost Cutting Features option.

Managing cost centers
Overview
Cost centers enable you to track, control, and account print services by
unit typically departments (for example: Marketing and Human Resources).
Each user is a member of one and only one cost center.
Each cost center can have different settings. For example, members of the
Marketing cost center might be allowed to use credit and to make a large
number of color prints; whereas members of the Human Resources cost
center might not use credit and might have a lower quota for color prints.
By default, all users are initially included in the Default cost center. You can
change the cost center for a user by editing the users account properties as
described in Editing user properties on page 67.
Creating cost centers

8 Managing credit systems and accounting
Overview
Credit system
You can set up a credit system that includes elements such as a cash desk,
printed receipts, statements, etc.
You can establish credit limits for each user that account their printing
activities and limit their use of certain MFPs and network printers, as well as
their use of specific features of those devices (color copies, etc.).
NOTES: In order to use the credit system, it must be enabled in the SafeQ
settings. See Enable Credit Module on page 51.

SafeQ Instant Edition does not support combined Credit and Batch
accounting; you must use one or the other.

SafeQ Instant Edition supports Xerox job-based accounting (JBA).
Accounting methods
There are two types of accounting methods: online and offline.
Online accounting
The basis for online accounting is the actual number of pages printed by
each MFP as provided directly by that device.
If a job is not completed because it is cancelled or because the device
malfunctions, only pages that were actually printed are accounted.
SafeQ can track all properties for which the device returns counter values.
NOTE: SafeQ can account duplex jobs even if the device does not return
the value duplex. If SafeQ detects that the job was duplex, it
accounts it as duplex.
Chapter 8. Managing credit systems and accounting
98 SAFEQ 3.5 INSTANT EDITION ADMINISTRATORS GUIDE
Offline accounting
With offline accounting, SafeQ analyzes the job before it is sent to the MFP
or network printer. The number of pages is accounted when the device
receives the job.
Pricing
Pricing can vary according to the job. You set prices when you add or edit an
MFP or network printer. (See Adding devices, beginning on page 83.)
For example:
If prices are defined as:
One sheet of A4 paper = 0.20
One printed A4 page = 0.80
Final prices are:

1 page - A4 0.20 + 0.80 1.00/page = 1.00/job
2 pages - A4 2 x 0.20 + 2 x 0.80 1.00/page = 2.00/job
2 pages - A4 DUPLEX 0.20 + 2 x 0.80 0.90/page = 1.80/job
3 pages - A4 DUPLEX 2 x 0.20 + 3 x 0.80 0.93/page = 2.80/job
4 pages - A4 DUPLEX 2 x 0.20 + 4 x 0.80 0.90/page = 3.60/job
5 pages - A4 DUPLEX 3 x 0.20 + 5 x 0.80 0.92/page = 4.60/job
5 pages - A4 5 x 0.20 + 5 x 0.80 1.00/page = 5.00/job
Cash desks
SafeQ cash desks represent real cash desks or cash registers. They enable
authorized people to receive money from users and credit it to users SafeQ
credit accounts, or to debit money from users credit accounts.
SafeQ keeps track of all cash desk operations, as well as the amount of cash
in the cash register.

9 Managing projects/billing codes
Overview
You can set up billing codes that enable costs to be tracked and allocated by
project. Users select the project from a list whenever they make prints or
copies. Costs for specific projects can then be billed to certain customers,
departmental projects, etc.
SafeQ reports can include information about expenses for each project.
NOTE: In order to use projects/billing codes, enable project accounting for
each associated MFP and network printer as described in the
Adding devices section, on page 86.
Once you enable project accounting, all printing and copying must
be associated with a specific project. For prints and copies that may
not be allocated to a project, it is a good idea to set up a
project/billing code such as non-project prints.
