What is MeterASSIST?

MeterASSIST is a non-invasive software solution for gathering meter reads from copiers and printers. In general, the installation requires little or no involvement from your onsite IT department. In fact Office Systems will install MeterASSIST for free. Meter data is passed securely through firewalls using the HTTPS protocol, similar to how a web browser communicates with a banking website. MeterASSIST is proxy-compatible and does not create security vulnerabilities. It is used in banks, hospitals, schools- any place with high security needs.

MeterASSIST has a very small impact on network performance. It runs as a service that is usually asleep, and wakes up a few times during the day to perform required tasks. MeterASSIST pulls the device description, IP address, serial number, location, page counts, and toner levels. It can be setup to send toner and service alerts as well. Printing devices that are compliant with the standard Printer MIB are supported, including Canon, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lanier, Lexmark, Ricoh, Sharp, Panasonic, and Xerox. Please contact us for a full list of devices and models.

Why use MeterASSIST?

MeterASSIST automatically gathers the meters and emails them as an Excel spreadsheet attachment when scheduled. 
MeterASSIST's installation program is under 4 MB in size, and it can be run from a USB drive, rather than installing it, if desired.

MeterASSIST does not rely on the email system of the end-customer to send meter data. It posts the data securely to a web server, from which the data is downloaded and sent via MeterASSIST email. 
MeterASSIST can monitor locally installed printers as well as network devices, including copiers and MFPs.
